10th Symposium and Summer School On Service-Oriented Computing

when 27 June 2016 - 1 July 2016
language English
duration 1 week
credits 3 ECTS
fee EUR 530

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 2016. Accepted papers will be published in the Springer Journal ‘Computer Science – Research and Development’, Issue 3 & 4, 2016.
This year, SummerSoC will grant first time the “Christos Nikolaou PhD Award” for the best PhD thesis in the areas above. Details about which thesis may qualify and how to summit suggestions will follow soon.
