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 2024, 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 two awards for the best paper in one of the areas of interest: (i) The “SummerSoC Young Researcher Award” that is associated with 500€ for the awardee, sponsored by ServTech and the renowned ICSOC conference series, and (ii) the „Best Paper Award“ that is associated with 300€ for the awardee, sponsored by D-Visor. Potential awardees must be (i) first author of a paper accepted for SummerSoC 2024, and for “SummerSoC Young Researcher Award” they must be (ii) PhD students. In addition, each awardee can only receive one award.
