Call for Research/Industry Papers

ICSOC 2019  - The 17th International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing

Call for Research/Industry Papers

ICSOC, the International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing, is the premier international forum for academics, industry researchers, developers, and practitioners to report and share groundbreaking work in service-oriented computing. ICSOC fosters cross-community scientific excellence by gathering experts from various disciplines, such as business-process management, distributed systems, computer networks, wireless and mobile computing, cloud computing, cyber-physical systems, networking, scientific workflows, services science, data science, management science, and software engineering.

ICSOC provides a high-quality forum for presenting results and discussing ideas that further our knowledge and understanding of the various aspects (e.g. application and system aspects) related to Service Computing applied to new application areas and gain insights into a variety of computing, networked, and cyber-physical systems ranging from mobile devices and Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications to large-scale cloud computing systems and the smart grid.

ICSOC 2019 , the 17th event in this series, will take place in Toulouse, France from October 28 to October 31, 2019. Following on the ICSOC tradition, it will feature visionary keynote presentations, research and industry presentations, workshops, tool demonstrations, tutorials, and a Ph.D. track.
