8th European Conference and Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing (ESOCC 2020)


April 1-2, 2020, Heraklion, Crete, Greece


 <https://www.esocc-conf.eu> https://www.esocc-conf.eu 







Service-oriented and cloud computing have made a huge impact both on the software industry and on the research community. Today, service and cloud technologies are applied to build large-scale software landscapes as well as to provide single software services to end users. Services today are independently developed and deployed as well as freely composed while they can be implemented in a variety of technologies, a quite important fact from a business perspective. Similarly, cloud computing aims at enabling flexibility by offering a centralized sharing of resources. The industry's need for agile and flexible software and IT systems has made cloud computing the dominating paradigm for provisioning computational resources in a scalable, on-demand fashion. Nevertheless, service developers, providers, and integrators still need to create methods, tools and techniques to support cost-effective and secure development as well as use of dependable devices, platforms, services and service-oriented applications in the cloud.


The European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing (ESOCC) is the premier conference on advances in the state of the art and practice of service-oriented computing and cloud computing in Europe. The main objectives of this conference are to facilitate the exchange between researchers and practitioners in the areas of service-oriented computing and cloud computing, as well as to explore the new trends in those areas and foster future collaborations in Europe and beyond.







- Main conference: three days full of invited talks, panels, and presentations of selected research papers, including a dedicated day to satellite workshops.

- PhD Symposium: an opportunity for Ph.D. students to present their research activities and perspectives, to critically discuss them with other PhD students and with established researchers in the area, hence getting fruitful feedback and advices on their research activities

- European Projects Track: a useful opportunity for researchers around Europe to disseminate the latest research developments in their projects and meet representatives of other consortia.


Details about all the tracks are available at the conference web site:  <https://www.esocc-conf.eu> https://www.esocc-conf.eu

- Ph.D. Symposium (8 pages, authored by the PhD student with indication of his/her supervisors' names)

- European Project Space (1-to-5 pages description of ongoing projects)


We only accept original papers, not submitted for publication elsewhere. The papers must be formatted according to the LNCS proceedings guidelines. They must be submitted to the EasyChair site at

 <https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esocc2020> https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esocc2020 by selecting the right track.


All accepted papers of the main conference will be included in the conference proceedings published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series ( <http://www.springer.com/lncs> http://www.springer.com/lncs)


There is a high possibility that the accepted papers of the other tracks and the satellite workshops will be published on CCIS series of Springer (final approval pending)


At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to register and present the work at the conference.


ESOCC 2020 also invites proposals for satellite workshops. More details about the proposal format and submission can be found at:  <https://esocc-conf.eu/index.php/workshops/> https://esocc-conf.eu/index.php/workshops/
