ESOCC 2014

Extended Deadline: 14 May 2014

Third European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing
2-4 September 2014, Manchester, United Kingdom

http://esocc2014.cs.manchester.ac.uk/ esocc2014 at manchester.ac.uk


The European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing (ESOCC) is the premier conference on the
advances in the state of the art and practice of Service-Oriented Computing and Cloud Computing in Europe. ESOCC
has evolved from the ECOWS (European Conference on Web Services) conference series, after the Steering
Committee decided to renew and broaden its scope, and to start a new conference series on advanced topics of
service-oriented and cloud computing.
The first edition of the new series, ESSOC 2012, was successfully held in Bertinoro, Italy, the second edition, ESOCC
2013, was held in Malaga, Spain, and will be continued by ESOCC 2014 in Manchester, UK. The main objectives of
this conference are to facilitate the exchange between researchers and practitioners in the areas of SOC and Cloud
Computing and to foster future collaborations in Europe and beyond. ESOCC 2014 will include invited talks,
presentations of selected research papers and an industrial track with the participation of top researchers from
industry. ESOCC 2014 will also include a PhD symposium and a series of satellite workshops.


The continued success of service-oriented distributed applications has shown that tightly coupled software systems
may be useful for niche markets, whereas loosely coupled software systems have proven to be more flexible, adaptive
and often more appropriate for practical applications.
Loose coupling makes it easier for a given system to interact with other system components (including legacy systems)

that have been developed independently somewhere in a heterogeneous universe of services. Thus, service-oriented
applications can evolve more easily during their lifespan and adapt better to changing or even unpredictable
environments. In such scenarios, cloud computing enables a new execution paradigm for distributed software
application where resources can be shared, optimally realized as well as utilized and exchanged between
heterogeneous execution platforms and the cloud, so as to achieve fast response times and to
ensure immersive and non-interrupted user experience.
Services today are developed independently, deployed as well as freely composed, and they can be implemented in a
variety of technologies a fact which is of particular importance from a business perspective.

Similarly, cloud computing aims at enabling mobility as well as device, platform and/or service independence by
offering centralized sharing of resources. It promotes interoperability, portability and security standards, and raises a
completely new set of security issues. On the implementation side, essential agreement has been reached on
integration technologies and consensus has emerged in today's middleware market. Customers use web technologies
extensively; however, service developers, providers, and integrators need to create methods, tools and techniques to
support cost-effective and secure development and use of dependable devices, platforms, services and service-
oriented applications in the cloud.


ESOCC 2014 seeks original, high quality papers related to all aspects of Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing,
which constitute the main technology available to date for implementing service-oriented architectures and cloud
computing. Topics of interest to the Research and Industry Tracks include, but are not limited to:

• Business Process Management and Web Services
• Cloud Services Management and Composition using Web Services
• Dynamic and Adaptive Web Services

ESOCC 2014 solicits both new research papers (in the main track) as well as reports on practical experiences from
industry (industry track). However, papers on existing products or product marketing information are not within the
scope of the ESOCC 2014 Industry Track.


Original papers, not submitted for publication elsewhere, can be submitted via EasyChair.

• Research papers: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esocc2014
• Industry-Track papers: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esocc2014it

Paper submissions should be formatted according to the LNCS proceedings guidelines and the templates available at
http://www.springer.com/computer/Incs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0 and they should not exceed 15 pages.
A paper might be accepted as a full paper (15 pages), as a short paper (8 pages) or as a poster (a 2-page abstract in the
proceedings). Conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
