SOSE 2013 (http://sei.pku.edu.cn/conference/sose2013/index.htm)

7th International Symposium on Service Oriented System Engineering,
March 25 - March 28, 2013,
San Francisco Bay, USA

The following co-located workshops in the area of service oriented system engineering
are proudly announced by the SOSE 2013 organization. Researchers and practitioners
are invited to contribute to SOSE 2013 workshops in order to build, enlarge and support
the services community. All reviewed workshop papers will be published in SOSE 2013
Moreover, all registered SOSE 2013 workshop participants will have access
to all workshops and conferences of SOSE 2013 at no additional charge.

The 2013 International Workshop on Internet-based Virtual Computing
Environment (iVCE'13)


Cloud computing is a disruptive technology with profound implications not only for Internet
computing but also for the IT as a whole. Cloud computing is a model for enabling
convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources
(e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned
and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. Cloud
computing moves computing and data away from desktop and portable PCs into large data
centers and enables new types of Internet applications, users will access Internet services
over lightweight devices.

With the proliferation of new Internet applications, the "large scale" and "utility"
characteristics of cloud computing become more and more outstanding. Neither simple
replication nor incremental extension of traditional computing technologies is able to
effectively deal with the challenges brought by the "large scale" and "utility" of Internet
computing. The shift of computing, storage and software delivery away from desktop and
local servers, across the Internet, and into data centers results in limitations as well as new
opportunities regarding resource management. The users' ability to use the same artifacts,
such as management tools, virtual server images, and so on, with a variety of cloud
computing providers and platforms results in requirement of cloud interoperability,
which will enable cloud infrastructures to evolve into a worldwide transparent platform. It has
become a very emergent demand to study the software architecture, hardware
architecture and supporting technologies of new Internet computing paradigms and
construct an efficient and trustworthy Internet-based virtual computing environment.

International Workshop on BPM Services in the Cloud(Canceled)

The cloud computing paradigm is attracting industrial and academic interest and is
changing the way that a wide range of areas work with computers. It grounds the idea of
computing as a utility by adopting service-orientation, in which services are hosted on large
data centers and accessed through the Internet using a pay-per-use model that allows users to
save an astounding amount in hardware and IT support costs.

The idea of services is also aligned with business process activities. In several scenarios, a
business process is computationally intense and cloud infrastructures are a natural candidate
to provide business services. In addition, the use of an underlying cloud infrastructure allows
companies to share a common business process and services, which can have a very large
use in enterprise and e-government context, for example. However, the interplay between
cloud-oriented computing and business process modeling (BPM) has not been deeply
exploited. This workshop aims at fostering the collaborations between these two areas. The
main goal is to discuss the challenges for the pervasive adoption of cloud computing in the
BPM world. There are a plethora of research issues that span almost the entire spectrum of
BPM such as: how business processes modeling is impacted when processes rely on services
provided by a cloud infrastructure? how business processes - and their supporting services -
might be managed? what are the facilities provided by cloud infrastructures for business
processes? in which ways current business processes lifecycle must be adapted for cloud?
how to apply the ideas of community cloud to foster BPM interoperability among

5 th International Workshop on Software Testing in the Cloud
(STITC 2013)


The theme of the workshop is "Testing as a Service" (TaaS).

Software testing in the cloud (STITC) lies at the intersection of three key areas: software
testing, cloud computing, and system migration. STITC is an emerging discipline with the
potential to significantly change the way software testing is done. It is an important
area that deserves the attention of researchers, practitioners, and managers alike.

The computational power offered by a cloud-based test execution environment, coupled
with a service-oriented architecture (SOA) that exposes these capabilities for use across
a network, offers the possibility of providing software testing as a service (TaaS). TaaS
might take several forms, including software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service
(PaaS), and even Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) in a DevOps scenario.

The STITC 2013 workshop will explore these various facets of TaaS, from both academic
research and practical real-world perspectives.
