12th Symposium and Summer School On Service-Oriented Computing,
June 24 – June 29, 2018 in Crete, Greece

SummerSoC is a well-established summer school and symposium focusing on service-oriented computing. The area of service-oriented computing is interpreted quite broadly, i.e. areas of interest for SummerSoC include cloud computing, business process management (i.e. service orchestrations), theoretical foundations of services, and applications in/of these areas, especially applications dealing with big /smart data and data sciences.

At SummerSoC, renowned researchers and leading industry practitioners give tutorials and invited talks on current topics from the areas above. PhD students present posters of their ongoing work and give plenary presentations of their theses. The agenda ensures that enough time is allocated for a lot of discussions. Participants come from both, academia as well as industry, and from all over the world.

SummerSoC is also a forum for presenting and discussing research from the areas above. Interested researchers submit papers that are peer-reviewed. In addition to novel research work we also ask for application and experience papers as well as overview papers (these submissions have to be marked accordingly). Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend SummerSoC 2018.

Accepted papers will be published in a Special Issue of the Springer Journal ‘Computer Science – Research and Development’, 2018. Additionally, the extended abstracts of the accepted posters will be published as an IBM Technical Report.

We invite submissions on the following topics:

  • Developing services for the cloud
    • Moving existing services to the cloud
    • DevOps paradigm for services
    • Methods and tools for developing “cloud native” services
    • Cloud federations and interoperability among clouds
    • Model driven design for multi-cloud services
  • Cloud & IoT
    • Elasticity analytics and control
    • Automatic provisioning and management
    • Transaction models, consistency models, and coordination models for multi-cloud environments
    • Elastic data-as-a-service
    • IoT middleware
    • Fog middleware
  • Big/smart Data and Data Science
    • Computational Models for Big Data
    • Software Systems to Support Big Data Computing
    • Cloud/Grid/Stream Computing for Big Data
    • Big Data in Motion and Big Data at Rest
    • Big Data management for IoT
    • Cloud/Grid/StreamData Mining
    • Cloud-based Analytic Computing and Analytic Services
    • Security & Privacy
    • Applications and Experience Reports
    • Data Science
  • Business processes in the cloud
    • Business Processes as a Service
    • Social media in business processes
    • Orchestration of Services (e.g. composition of IoT services)
    • Quality-of-result aware business processes
  • Applications of services
    • eHealth, e.g. Connected Health
    • Smart energy/smart grids
    • IoT services
    • eScience
    • Digital Humanities

This year, SummerSoC will grant first time the “Christos Nikolaou PhD Award” for the best PhD thesis in the areas above.
The award is not only an honor and distinction but is associated with 2000€ for the awardee, sponsored by StartTech Ventures. Details about which thesis may qualify and how to submit, you can find here.

SummerSoC will also grant the “SummerSoC Young Researcher Award” to the best paper in one of the areas above.
A potential awardee must be (i) first author of a paper accepted for SummerSoC 2018, and (ii) PhD student.
The award is associated with 500€ for the awardee, sponsored by the renowned ICSOC conference series.
