The 3rd International Workshop of Software Engineering for
Adaptive Service-oriented Systems (SEASS’09)
In conjunction with
7th IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2009)
July 10, 2009, Los Angeles, CA, USA
Call for Papers
Workshop Theme: Empower Web Services with Adaptability
Web services have been the main force in driving service-oriented computing that promises not only a new paradigm for B2B collaboration, but also an opportunity for the creation of value-added services and new business models. Together with Web 2.0 and utility computing, Web services are one of the key technology enablers of a new software deployment paradigm – Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Pay-as-you-go SaaS stresses reliance on the guarantee of service level agreement for satisfying the computing needs of users, without them needing knowledge of, expertise with, or control over the technology infrastructure that supports them.
A variety of classical and emerging challenges as arise in
deploying and operating services on the Web in the real dynamic
environment. These include how to atomically discover and binding to a
‘right’ service; how to automatically negotiate a SLA among
a group of collaborative services; how to check/resolve policy
conflictions between these services; how to handle exceptions of
long-running transactions across loosely coupling services etc.
All of these challenges share a
In the previous events of this workshop series, published
papers have addressed aspects of software architecture, process and
test, deployment and configuration, and quality of service management.
In the 3rd edition of the workshop we aim to broaden the scope by
specifically addressing topics that link adaptability of Web services
to the paradigm of SaaS and cloud computing. In additional to the
topics covered in the previous workshops, we also encourage submissions
of papers addressing relatively new technologies such as
virtualization, multi-tenancy, monitoring, billing and reporting of
service usages, and enterprise mashups.
The aim of SEASS 2009 is to encourage academic researchers and
industry practitioners to present and discuss all adaptability-related
research and experiences in a very broad spectrum of Service Oriented
Computing (SOC). The topics of the workshop include but not limited to:
Shiping Chen, Networking Technologies Lab, CSIRO ICT Centre, Australia
Ian Gorton, Computational and Information Sciences at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, US
Yan Liu, Managing Complexity Theme, National ICT Australia, Australia
Liming Zhu, Managing Complexity Theme, National ICT Australia
Program Committee (pending)
Alan Colman, Swinburne University of Technology, Australia
Authors are invited to submit full papers (about 8 pages) or short papers (about 4 pages) of double column text using single spaced 10 point size on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines (http://www.computer.org/cspress/instruct.htm). You can download the paper template in word format here.
