*** Final Call for Papers for the Main Track ***

9th European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing
(ESOCC 2022)

March 22-24, 2022, Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Germany


(*** Submission Deadline Extended to November 21st ***)


Service-oriented and cloud computing have made a huge impact both on the software
industry and on the research community. Today, service and cloud technologies are
applied to build large-scale software landscapes as well as to provide single software
services to end users. Services today are independently developed and deployed as
well as freely composed while they can be implemented in a variety of technologies, a
quite important fact from a business perspective. Similarly, cloud computing aims at 
enabling flexibility by offering a centralised sharing of resources. The industry's need
for agile and flexible software and IT systems has made cloud computing the 
dominating paradigm for provisioning computational resources in a scalable, on-
demand fashion. Nevertheless, service developers, providers, and integrators still 
need to create methods, tools and techniques to support cost-effective and secure 
development as well as use of dependable devices, platforms, services and service-
oriented applications in the cloud.

The European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing (ESOCC) is the 
premier conference on advances in the state of the art and practice of service-
oriented computing and cloud computing in Europe. The main objectives of this 
conference are to facilitate the exchange between researchers and practitioners in the
areas of service-oriented computing and cloud computing, as well as to explore the 
new trends in those areas and foster future collaborations in Europe and beyond.

ESOCC 2022 invites submissions for the main track:

- Regular research papers (15 pages including references)

We only accept original papers, not submitted for publication elsewhere. The papers 
must be formatted according to the LNCS proceedings guidelines. They must be 
submitted to the EasyChair site at
http://www.cs.ucy.ac.cy/~george/GPLists_2021/lm.php?tk=aHBjLWFubm91bmNlCQkJaHBjLWFubm91bmNlQG1jcy5hbmwuZ292CTl0aCBFdXJvcGVhbiBDb25mZXJlbmNlIG9uIFNlcnZpY2UtT3JpZW50ZWQgYW5kIENsb3VkIENvbXB1dGluZyAoRVNPQ0MgMjAyMik6IEZpbmFsIENhbGwgZm9yIFBhcGVycyBmb3IgdGhlIE1haW4gVHJhY2sJMzUxCUxpc3RzCTQ0CWNsaWNrCXllcwlubw==&url=https%3A%2F%2Feasychair.org%2Fconferences%2F%3Fconf%3Desocc2022 by selecting the main track.

All accepted regular research papers are expected to be published in the main 
conference proceedings by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
series (http://www.springer.com/lncs).

At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to register and present the 
work at the conference.

A journal special issue is planned, and authors of selected accepted papers will be
invited to submit extended versions of their articles.
