10th European Conference On Service-Oriented And Cloud Computing (ESOCC 2023): First Call for Submissions

by George Angelos Papadopoulos, Jan. 14, 2023

The European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing (ESOCC) is the premier
conference on advances in the state-of-the-art and practice of Service-Oriented Computing
and Cloud Computing in Europe. ESOCC aims to facilitate the exchange between researchers
and practitioners in the areas of Service-Oriented Computing and Cloud Computing, as well as
to explore the new trends in those areas and foster future collaborations in Europe and beyond.

10th European Conference On Service-Oriented And Cloud Computing (ESOCC 2023)


October 24-26, 2023, Golden Bay Beach Hotel, Larnaca, Cyprus

(Proceedings to be published in Springer LNCS;

Journal Special Issue with Springer Computing)




AIM AND SCOPE


Nowadays, Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing are the primary approaches to build

large-scale distributed systems and deliver software services to end users. Cloud-native 

software is pervading the delivery of enterprise applications, as they are composed of 

(micro)services that can be independently developed and deployed by exploiting multiple 

heterogeneous technologies. Resulting applications are polyglot service compositions that can

then be shipped in serverful or serverless platforms (e.g., using virtualization technologies). 


These characteristics make Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing the natural answers for 

fulfilling the industry’s need for flexibly scalable and maintainable enterprise applications, to

be delivered through state-of-the-art methodologies, like DevOps. To further support this,

researchers and practitioners need to create methods, tools and techniques to support

cost-effective and secure development as well as use of dependable devices, platforms,

services and service-oriented applications in the Cloud, now also considering the Cloud-IoT 

computing continuum to exploit widespread adoption of smart connected things and the 

increasing growth of their computing capabilities.


The European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing (ESOCC) is the premier 

conference on advances in the state-of-the-art and practice of Service-Oriented Computing

and Cloud Computing in Europe. ESOCC aims to facilitate the exchange between researchers

and practitioners in the areas of Service-Oriented Computing and Cloud Computing, as well as

to explore the new trends in those areas and foster future collaborations in Europe and beyond.

• Submission of full papers: June 11th, 2023 (AoE)
• Notification to authors: July 14th, 2023 (AoE)
• Camera-ready versions due: July 31st, 2023 (AoE)



TYPES OF SUBMISSIONS


ESOCC 2023 invites submissions of the following kinds:
• Regular Research Papers (15 pages including references, for the technical and special tracks)
• PhD Symposium (12 pages including references)
• Projects and Industry Reports (Projects and Industry Reports (1 to 6 pages including 

references, describing an ongoing EU or national project, or providing industrial perspectives

on innovative applications, technologies, or methods in ESOCC’s scope) 


We only accept original papers, not submitted for publication elsewhere. The papers must be 

formatted according to the proceedings guidelines of Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer 

Science (LNCS) series (http://www.springer.com/lncs).


They must be submitted to the EasyChair site at:
 https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esocc2023  by selecting the right track.


Accepted papers from all tracks will be published in the main conference proceedings by 

Springer in the LNCS series. For publication to happen, at least one author of each accepted

paper is expected to register and present the work at the conference.


The best papers accepted will be invited to submit extended versions for a Journal Special

Issue to be published by Springer Computing.
