IEEE 2010 First International Workshop
on Engineering Mobile Service Oriented Systems (EMSOS)

Miami, Florida, USA, one day between July 5-10, 2010
in conjunction with ICWS 2010, SCC 2010, and CLOUD 2010


Aims and Scope

Mobile systems are characterized with autonomous, dynamically adaptable, and heterogeneous components collaborating in open intra-organizational environments to provide solutions. Next generation phones, mobile networks, mobile cloud computing are a few examples of mobile applications where code, users and their devices continuously move. Evolving requirements, such as reliability, security, scalability, performance and privacy, from fixed to mobile settings, has revealed new and important challenges. This is due to the behavioural constraints that mobility poses, and that were not faced in traditional distributed settings. Examples include: dynamic network topology, changes in location, constrained resource availability, communication protocols heterogeneity, unstable connectivity, and so forth. The service-oriented paradigm is a promising approach for engineering open, dynamic and distributed systems. There are a plethora of research issues on how mobile systems can make use of service oriented engineering techniques.

The EMSOS Workshop aims to bring together researchers from academia and industry, as well as practitioners in the area of engineering services in mobile environments in order to provide a forum where recent research results can be presented and discussed. The aim is to understand open issues in the software engineering area of services applied in mobile environments, and to build a community of researchers and practitioners willing to collaborate on these issues.
The workshop seeks contributions that address theoretical foundations, important issues, recent developments, applications, methods, practical techniques, tools, empirical studies, experience, and lessons learned related to engineering mobile service oriented systems. 

List of Topics

Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit UNPUBLISHED research and industrial papers in three paper categories: 6 page (full papers), 4 page (short papers), and 2 page (position papers) of double column text using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 (

Authors should submit a Word or PDF files using the online submission and review system. The accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the SERVICES 2010 by the IEEE Computer Society Press and will be made available online through the IEEE Digital Library.
