SOSE 2015: 9th International Symposium on Service Oriented System Engineering March 30 - April 3, 2015 San Francisco Bay, USA


Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) exploits services as the fundamental elements for developing computer-based systems, and represents a paradigm shift away from traditional distributed systems. Service-oriented systems are becoming increasingly ubiquitous, large-scale, and complex. Such systems are often distributed across large numbers of resources in different geographical locations running on heterogeneous infrastructure, with a large and increasing number of diverse users demanding new techniques for data management and processing.

With SOC coming of age, conceptually well-founded and, at the same time, practical approaches supporting the whole range of engineering service-oriented systems, i.e., models, architectures, infrastructures, design, implementation, deployment, testing, delivery, consumption, maintenance, evaluation and evolution, are still missing in almost all non-basic areas. Hence, the main themes of the 2015 symposium try to put a new focus on these important aspects of SOC:

 * Methods, Languages and Tools for process-based SOC systems engineering
 * Advanced models and infrastructures in Service-oriented engineering
Continuing the tradition of the last eight SOSE Symposia, the 9th SOSE will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange latest observations, insights, achievements and visions in Service-Oriented System Engineering. Particularly, SOSE 2015 invites original submissions in all areas of process and system engineering, as well as software engineering methods, techniques, tools, applications, and experiments for process- and service-oriented systems and software services.

A. Regular Research Papers
Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

B. Industry Practice / Case Study papers SOSE 2015 encourages papers report industry practice, case studies, empirical research and practical experiences in service engineering are invited. The topics include, but not limited to the following:

 * Enterprise business architecture and solution frameworks
 * Platforms and tools for system and software engineering
 * Case studies, experiments and evaluation of service-oriented system
 * Innovative service applications and experiences

C. Survey and Emerging Subjects Tutorial Papers In addition to regular research paper and industry practice/case study paper sessions, SOSE 2015 will also invite some tutorial papers, which review the state-of-the-art of the research on services engineering as well as the related emerging paradigms and technologies. These papers should summarize the recent research advance in service engineering from different perspectives, identify the open issues and future trends and challenges in the field. SOSE 2015 also encourages discussion papers which target at the visions on future related issues, including the emerging paradigms, technologies and applications.
The topics include, but not limited to, the following:

 * Theoretical and technical foundation of service-oriented systems
 * Methodology and engineering principles of service-oriented systems
 * Testing, verification, validation and QA in the development of service-oriented systems
 * Construction, deployment, operation and maintenance of service-oriented systems
 * Measurements and metrics of QoS in SOA-based application systems
 * Governance and policies in service-oriented software development
 * Engineering techniques and tools to support the publishing, discovery and composition of services
 * Architectural and detail designs of services and code generation of service software
