Welcome to SOSE 2011  

IEEE MobileCloud2013 Industry Track in conjunction with SOSE 2013

The Industry Track is the forum for high quality reports on emergent technologies, challenges, and experience and lessons learned, as well as case studies focused on innovative software technologies and solutions in practice. This track covers all facets of computer software and engineering, like service oriented engineering, mobile & pervasive computing, cloud computing and engineering, virtualization, and mobile cloud services and applications. In addition, it also welcomes the contribution papers covering emergent topics, such as big data and analytics, cyber security, smart computing, as well as social network and multi-media.

Experience reports, position papers, issue and challenge discussions, or case studies representing results of partnerships between industry and academia are of substantial interest. We also encourage submissions on experiences with innovative applications, methods, tools, and solutions. Submissions that do not relate to commercial software or industrial-strength software intended for wide use were discouraged.
