As emerging paradigms, service and cloud computing enable resource to be employed in utility-based fashion. Workflow automating business and scientific processing in step by step can be executed in service and cloud computing environments in the benefit of deploying resources for execution in that fashion. This workshop following its successful edition of WMSC2012 aims to provide a forum for researchers, practitioners and developers from different background areas such as service computing, cloud computing and workflow area to exchange the latest experience, research ideas and synergic research and development on fundamental issues and applications about workflow management in service and cloud computing environments. The workshop solicits high quality research results in all related areas.
Topics of Interest

The objective of the workshop is to invite authors to submit original manuscripts that demonstrate and explore current advances in all aspects of workflow management in service and cloud computing environments. The workshop solicits novel papers on a broad range of topics, including but not limited to:

* Service based workflow modelling
* Service Delivery and Composition
* Service Level Agreements (SLAs) Negotiation, Automation and Orchestration
* Quality of Services for workflow execution
* Workflow verification and validation
* Services Repository and Registry
* Service Security, Privacy and Trust for workflow modelling and execution
* Novel architectural models for cloud computing in support of workflow execution
* Cloud workflow architecture
* Cloud resource management
* Scientific computing in the cloud
* Programming models for cloud computing
* Access control and authorisation for workflow execution
* Workflow scheduling in cloud computing
* Utility models and service pricing
* Service enabled workflow applications
* Privacy, security, risk and trust issues in cloud computing
* Social issues in cloud computing
* Green cloud computing
* Green ICT and smart metering
* Cloud workflow applications
Submission Guidelines and Publication

Please submit your paper(s) in PDF file at the WMSC2013 submission site: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wmsc2013. Papers should be limited up to 8 pages in IEEE format (http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting). All papers will be peer reviewed by two or three pc members. Submitting a paper to the workshop means that if the paper is accepted, at least one author should register to CGC2013 and attend the conference to present the paper.

All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society (EI indexed). Selected papers will be invited to be published in special issues of 
* Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience
* Future Generation Computer Systems
* International Journal of High Performance Computer Applications
