Advanced School: Service-Oriented Computing (Greece July 2-7)

Advanced School: Service-Oriented Computing

This year, once more, the Advanced School opens for graduate students and young professionals in the area of Service Oriented Computing. It will take place in Crete, Greece, from July 2 to July 7, 2012. For more information please visit:

Listening to the participants’ recommendations, the Advanced School continues the structure introduced last year: we focus on a small number of specific topics (tracks) and have lectures only on these. The tracks are:

Conceptual Foundations

Computing in the Clouds

People in Service Oriented Computing Systems (SOCS)

Emerging Topics

The tracks are color coded on the program to be easily recognizable. In addition, as in previous years, we will have a special session where PhD candidates can present their thesis, sessions for presenting running state-of-the-art FP7 projects on Services, System Architectures, Infrastructures and Engineering (SSAIE), a visit to the archaeological sites of Knossos and Festos, and of course for relaxation, a program rich in social events (beach party, visit to a traditional Cretan village, etc.).

Graduate students can take the Advanced School as a graduate-level course, and earn 3 ECTS units. The course credits are recognized by several Universities, and those interested can contact us to inquire whether the Advanced School on Service-Oriented Computing is recognized by their University.

The Advanced School on Service-Oriented Computing 2012 will be, once more and without doubt, a successful combination of knowledge acquisition along with the opening of the mind on all topics related to Service Oriented Computing.

Come to learn, network and enjoy!
