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, microservice architecture, service orchestrations, service meshes, blockchains, Internet of Things, theoretical foundations of these subjects, and applications in/of all these areas, especially applications dealing with big/smart data and data sciences. Also, cross-domain subjects like eScience, digital humanities, or quantum computing are considered.
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 2021, present their paper in the plenum as well as in the poster session.
Accepted papers will be published in the Springer proceedings series CCIS „Communications in Computer and Information Science”. Additionally, the best poster abstracts will be invited to contribute an extended and revised short paper to the CCIS proceedings.
