Call for papers
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. Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend SummerSoC 2023, 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”.
SummerSoC will also grant the “SummerSoC Young Researcher Award” to the best paper in one of the areas of interest. A potential awardee must be (i) first author of a paper accepted for SummerSoC 2023, and (ii) PhD student. The award is associated with 500€ for the awardee, sponsored by the renowned ICSOC conference series.

Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign the Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
We would like to draw the attention of authors of conference papers to the Springers Code of Conduct, as accepted papers must adhere to these specific guidelines.
The 17th Symposium and Summer School in Service-Oriented Computing is directed by leading experts, faculty at well-known universities, and industrial R&D leaders in the field of Service-Oriented Computing (SOC). All of them have been involved in previous efforts to establish Services Science as a fundamental paradigm for computing and software architecture.
