PESOS 2011 - Third International Workshop on Principles of Engineering Service-Oriented Systems

Co-located with the 33rd ACM/IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2011, Hawaii, U.S.A.)

Service-oriented systems represent a new class of software system in which software is being used and integrated as external, loosely-coupled services rather than being physically integrated and owned permanently.  Service-oriented systems provide a more flexible approach to software development, provisioning and maintenance because services offer reusable functionality that can be combined to support business processes (or similar) that are dynamic by nature.  This enables the adaptation to changes in a system's environment as well as to the continuously evolving system requirements that are commonplace today.  However, service orientation poses challenges to more traditional approaches to software development, stemming from the lack of homogeneity of its basic components and from the requirement of being able to accommodate changes and dynamic evolution right from the beginning.  In this respect, the workshop aims at finding possibilities of synergy between Software Engineering (SE) technologies and Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) that are beneficial to both field


Topics of Interest


The general theme of the workshop is the synergy between SOC and SE.  Specific topics of interest which delineate the expected contributions to the workshop follow, but in all of them we expect authors to highlight how their work contributes to a better understanding of the relationships between SOC and SE.

PESOS seeks contributions addressing, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Service-oriented software system life cycle

  • Specification of service-oriented systems

  • Requirements for service-oriented systems

  • Design and architecture of service-oriented systems

  • Verification, validation, and testing of services and service-oriented systems

  • Adaptation and maintenance of service-oriented systems

  • Service description, discovery, and composition

  • Service semantics and interoperability

  • Service deployment, binding, and monitoring

  • Resource organization and management in service-oriented systems

  • Service-oriented business process integration and management

  • Service personalization and context-aware provisioning

  • Service dependability, survivability, and reliability

  • Trust, security, and privacy in service-oriented systems

  • Quality of service (QoS) in service-oriented systems

  • Service visualization and re-factorization

  • Humans in service-based applications

  • SOA and Cloud Computing


Submitted papers will have to follow the ICSE 2011 format and not excedd 7 pages in length, including tables, figures, references, and appendices.  The submission will be handled through EasyChair.
