IEEE 2014 Second International Workshop on Engineering Mobile Service Oriented Systems(EMSOS 2014)

One day between June 27 and July 2, 2014,at Hilton Anchorage, Alaska, USA 


Mobile systems are characterized withautonomous, dynamically adaptable, and heterogeneous components collaboratingin open intra-organizational environments to provide solutions. Next generationphones, mobile networks, mobile cloud computing are a few examples of mobileapplications where code, users and their devices continuously move. Evolvingrequirements, such as reliability, security, scalability, performance andprivacy, from fixed to mobile settings, has revealed new and importantchallenges. This is due to the behavioural constraints that mobility poses, andthat were not faced in traditional distributed settings. Examples include:dynamic network topology, changes in location, constrained resourceavailability, communication protocols heterogeneity, unstable connectivity, andso forth. The service-oriented paradigm is a promising approach for engineeringopen, dynamic and distributed systems. There are a plethora of research issueson how mobile systems can make use of service oriented engineering techniques.

The EMSOS Workshop aims to bringtogether researchers from academia and industry, as well as practitioners in thearea of engineering services in mobile environments in order to provide a forumwhere recent research results can be presented and discussed. The aim is tounderstand open issues in the software engineering area of services applied inmobile environments, and to build a community of researchers and practitionerswilling to collaborate on these issues.

The workshop seeks contributions that address theoretical foundations,important issues, recent developments, applications, methods, practicaltechniques, tools, empirical studies, experience, and lessons learned relatedto software engineering mobile service oriented systems.
