CALL FOR PAPERS - IEEE SOCA 2018

The 11 th  IEEE International Conference on Service Oriented Computing
and Applications (SOCA 2018)
Paris, France
November 6 - 9, 2017

*Submission Deadline: July 14, 2018*

Dear Colleagues:
We cordially invite you to share your latest research results at the
SOCA 2018 Conference.

CALL FOR PAPERS
----------------------
Service-oriented computing (SOC) is considered today a key enabler for
the development of robust and high-quality intelligent Internet-scale
distributed applications. Extensive research and development in the past
few  years has pushed SOC technology into state-of-the-art applications
in emerging areas such as Cloud computing, Internet-of-Things (IoT),
Machine-to-Machine  (M2M)  communication,  Cyber-Physical Systems 
(CPSs),  Mobile-Edge Computing, Social computing as well as mobile and
enterprise systems. However, many of the critical components on building
reliable, robust, and user-centric, cloud-based service-oriented
architecture applications and systems are still open for research.
Hence, it is time to face new service-oriented architecture (SOA)
research opportunities by addressing new research challenges on emerging
applications domains like smart cities, smart logistics, smart factories
and e-Health, just to mention a few.
Many of the service components are deployed on resource-limited embedded
systems and are performance sensitive; others are deployed on cloud
servers providing highly parallel services and on edge servers in the
middle of resource-limited systems and high-end servers. Edge servers
and clouds are connected through various types of networks, including
emerging network function virtualization services.  
These components are part of complex applications and systems that span
multiple execution environments.
Their capabilities are increasingly being managed and (re)configured via
emerging software-defined and elasticity mechanisms. In addition, they
have to interact with humans in order to obtain useful human-sensing
data and solve complex problems. Thus, on the one hand, SOC may provide
effective solutions for managing the ever-increasing complexity while
meeting the challenging requirements of services on largely distributed,
heterogeneous and dynamic resource environments. On the other hand, the
exploitation of emerging trends in such environments to build SOC
applications and systems for large-scale service-based systems is an
open research challenge.

The 2018 IEEE International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing and
Applications (SOCA 2018) provides an international forum for researchers
from multiple disciplines to exchange and share their experiences,
ideas, and latest research results on all aspects of service-oriented
computing. The conference includes three days of parallel-track program,
special-topic workshops, keynotes and tutorials, and panel discussion.  

We invite submissions of high-quality papers describing fully developed
results or ongoing work on the following topics and related areas:
  -Service-oriented architectures, engineering, and applications
  -Cloud-based service systems
  -SOCA in IoT and Cyber-Physical Systems
  -Service Models and Applications for Mobile-Edge Computing
  -Service coordination techniques in IoT and cloud environments
  -SOC-based smart process and workflow management
  -Configurable, reconfigurable and software-defined service middleware
  -Data analytics and data services in and for SOC-based systems
  -IoT and data marketplaces
  -Smart data and service contracts
  -Cognitive computing techniques for SOCA
  -Social computing for and atop SOCA
  -SOCA development, deployment and testing tools and methodologies
  -Security and privacy for SOCA
  -Dependable and trustworthy SOCA
  -SOCA for smart applications (cities, transportation systems,
factories, homes and offices, etc.)
