Call for papers – Servicewave 2011

Poznan, Poland, 26th – 28th October 2011

Submission Deadline: May 16th 2011


The  ServiceWave  conference  series  aims  to  establish  the premier
European  forum  for  practitioners,  researchers,  and  educators  to
discuss  the most recent innovations, trends, experiences and concerns
and to set the agenda for research on the Future Converged Internet of
Content  (IoC), Services  (IoS), Things  (IoT)  and related underlying
network technologies.  ServiceWave fosters  cross-community excellence
by bringing  together  industrial  and  academic  experts from various

ServiceWave  2011  will  feature  four  scientific sub-tracks bringing
together  different  communities  contributing to at least one central
aspect of the Future Converged  Internet.  For each of the four themes
ServiceWave  2011  seeks  submissions  about  novel  ideas,   original
research  contributions  as  well  as original reports on the state of
practice and real-world experience.  More precisely,  the focus of the
four scientific sub-tracks will be:

Business Services:
This track will deal with ideas and techniques that  allow expressing,
understanding,  representing,  and managing  business  processes  in a
service-oriented manner. The topics of interest encompass but are  not
limited to:
* Economics of business services provided following  the software as a
service (SaaS) model
* Markets and marketplaces for business services
* Business service identification, modeling, & granularity
* Business service pricing and revenue models
* Quality of business services

Cloud Computing
This track will  discuss  the  potential  of  emerging  techniques and
technologies to  contribute  to a  European  Cloud Computing Strategy.
Concrete topics comprise but are not limited to:
* Cloud management and enablement technologies
* Interoperability and portability
* Federation and aggregation of clouds
* Security for clouds
* Efficient energy usage of resources

Security, Privacy and Trust
This track seeks  contributions  taking  us  from  a  fragile  current
internet  to a trustworthy  Future  Internet  bridging the virtual and
physical worlds. Concrete topics comprise:
* Identity, privacy and the Internet of Things
* Trust and privacy in cloud/online services
* Content security challenges and solutions
* Digital forensics and the Future Internet
* Dynamic, federated trust and security
* Security assurance of dynamic/open systems
* Security, privacy and trust metrics

Service Engineering Fundamentals
This track  will  deal  with  topics  around  fundamental  engineering
techniques  that  allow us  to move  towards a Future Internet Service
Infrastructure.  The topics  of interest encompass but are not limited
* Requirements,  design  and architecture for service-oriented systems
* Verification,   validation,   and    testing   of    services    and
service-oriented systems
* Adaptation, evolution  and  maintenance  of service-oriented systems
* Service description, discovery, and composition
* Service deployment, binding, and monitoring
* Quality of service (QoS) in service-oriented systems

ServiceWave 2011 will also feature the following events:

** Industry Track: Invited industrial talks will provide insight  into
best  practices,  innovations  and  ideas  of  key industrial players.
Industrial panels will  discuss  hot  cross-disciplinary  topics  from
different angles.

** Demonstration Evening:  The demonstration  evening will  provide an
interactive forum  to present and  discuss about demonstrators,  tools
and  automation of  specific  aspects  of hot  topics  of  the  Future
Converged Internet and its application domains.

** Workshops  and  Trainings:  The  Workshops  &  Training  day   will
stimulate  and facilitate  the active exchange and interaction between
practitioners and researchers around cross-communities topics.

** NESSI  Sessions:  Dedicated   sessions   will   focus  on   ongoing
initiatives  and  results  of  NESSI, the European Technology Platform
dedicated to Software and Services.

We  invite high  quality submissions  of  research  papers  describing
original and unpublished results of theoretical, empirical, conceptual
and  experimental research  related  to  one  (or  more) topics of the
ServiceWave  scientific  tracks.  We  especially  are  interested   in
submissions describing groundbreaking approaches to emerging  problems
and submissions addressing cross-communities issues.
In addition,  ServiceWave  explicitly  solicit  submissions  from  the
industrial community  covering  the  state  of practice and real-world
experience in  service  engineering.  Industry  papers should describe
innovative  service-based   implementations,   novel  applications  of
service-oriented  technology  as  well as insights and improvements to
the state-of-practice. Papers should provide sufficient details on the
application domain,  the  service-oriented techniques used, the issues
surrounding actual  implementations  and applications, and the lessons
learned in the field.

We invite authors  to submit  full papers  (up to 12 pages) describing
original contributions related to ServiceWave 2011 which have not have
been published elsewhere,  or are  not under  review  or submitted for
review elsewhere.  Submissions should  be in  PDF, on A4 page size and
formatted in LNCS style (see for details).
Papers should be submitted using Easychair at

The ServiceWave 2011 proceedings will be published in Springer’s  LNCS
Service Science series.
