7th International Workshop on Principles of Engineering Service-Oriented and Cloud Systems
Call for Papers
In conjunction with the 36th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2015)
May 23, 2015
Paper Submission (extended): January 30, 2015
Acceptance Notification: February 18, 2015
Camera-Ready Copy: February 27, 2015
Cloud Computing is shaping the way that organizations acquire and use systems — software-as-a-service (SaaS) model — and how they develop and deploy systems — platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) models. This emerging computing paradigm is having a significant impact on the way modern software is designed, developed, deployed and governed. In particular, the scale and readily accessible nature of the Cloud opens new opportunities for designing and engineering service-based collaboration. That is, not only individual applications can be hosted on the virtual infrastructure, but also complete processes that require collaborations of multiple such systems. Even though cloud platforms and infrastructures are typically designed to scale on demand, the questions are (i) whether this automatic elasticity translates to all services deployed on them, and (ii) whether collaboration amongst the services on (multiple) Clouds be managed elastically. Other qualities of concern and interest in this environment include monitorability, manageability, privacy, security, availability and reliability.
PESOS 2015 forum seeks contributions addressing, but not limited to, the following topics related to design, development, deployment, use, and integration of software, human and collaborative services in the Cloud.
Service engineering for elasticity, scalability, monitorability, and other attributes expected of Cloud-based services and collaboration processes
Frameworks and architectures for service collaboration in the Cloud
Collaboration as services
Elastic business process management in the Cloud
Requirement engineering issues for Cloud-based collaborative services
Methods and tools for design-time software engineering support for desired run-time collaboration behavior in the cloud
Adaptation and evolution of collaborative Cloud services
Service personalization and context-aware provisioning in the Cloud
Service delivery models for mobile applications.
Frameworks and programming model for IoT (Internet of Things) and IoE (Internet of Everything) services and their integration to Cloud
Service dependability, survivability, reliability and resilience
Trust, security, and privacy in Cloud-based services
Quality of service (QoS), Service-level Agreements (SLAs) in the Cloud
Verification and validation of service-oriented systems
Migration to service-oriented systems in the Cloud
Cloud requirements and design for growing markets.
In addition, PESOS 2015 will continue “The Quest for Case Studies.” Started at PESOS 2012 as a special session, the goal is to create the reference set of case studies for the research community in service-oriented systems.
Paper Submission and Publication
The submission and review process will be done using EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pesos2015). Submissions must follow the ICSE 2015 formatting guidelines: http://2015.icse-conferences.org/submission-guidelines.
All contributions will be reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical quality and relevance to the workshop theme. The page limit for regular papers is 7 pages and 2 pages for case study descriptions. In addition, accepted case study submissions must commit to place all case study artifacts in the public repository.
All accepted papers will be published in the conference electronic proceedings and in both ACM Digital Library and IEEE Digital Library.
Workshop summary will be submitted to ACM Software Engineering Notes for publication.
