December 5 - 8 2011, Paphos, Cyprus



ICSOC is a prime forum for researchers and practitioners from academia and 
industry alike to present and discuss groundbreaking works in service-oriented
computing. This year ICSOC will focus on the challenges in transitioning from 
service-oriented computing to cloud-based services. In cloud computing we use
a common service abstraction to provide infrastructure (IaaS), platform (PaaS),
and software (SaaS), meaning that lessons learned in service-oriented computing
can be extremely valuable. The Demonstration Program will therefore highlight 
practical contributions that show how service-oriented techniques and tools 
have assisted, or can assist, the development of cloud-based systems. 

Submissions are invited for system demonstrations to be included in the ICSOC
2011 Demonstration Program. The program will provide an opportunity to discuss
emerging technologies with key researchers and practitioners, and allow the 
participants to elaborate on how expertise in service-oriented computing can
help us garner new opportunities in the field of cloud computing.

The ICSOC 2011 Demonstration Program welcomes practical contributions that 
address general or domain-specific challenges of service-oriented computing,
and of its transition towards cloud computing. The program is interested in 
innovative software technologies, tools and applications.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Service-oriented Architecture
- Services on the Cloud - XaaS (everything as a service including IaaS, PaaS, 
  and SaaS)
- Grid and Cloud Services
- Social networks and services
- Human-provided and outsourcing services
- Theoretical and Technical Service Foundations
- Business Service Modeling and Business Process Modeling
- Service Integration and Orchestration on the Cloud
- Service Composition and Engineering
- Service Operations and Management on the Cloud
- Quality of Service for Cloud Services
- Software Engineering Models, Methods and Methodologies for XaaS
- Service Applications and Implementations
- Service Design Methods
- Service Change Management
- Service Vocabularies and Ontologies
- SOA Runtimes and Middleware
- Testbeds for Service Concepts and Technologies
- Business Intelligence and Analytics for Services
- Pervasive and Mobile Services on the Cloud
- Embedded and Real-time Services
- Service Security, Privacy, and Trust

Demonstration submissions have to include a two page description of the 
contribution including a title, a system overview, a summary of its novel 
characteristics, and the functions/features to be demonstrated. Descriptions
are to be written in English and must not exceed 2 pages following LNCS format
(see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for details). Additionally, 
authors should provide a link to a short online video or screen cast not 
exceeding 6 minutes in length (hard limit) of their demonstration. If a video
cannot be provided, authors must alternatively produce a set of at the most 8
(hard limit) screenshots of their demonstration.

Submissions have to be uploaded electronically via the conference Web site.

All submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their innovation, practical 
value, presentation and relevance to the main conference themes. Accepted 
submissions will be included in the ICSOC 2011 post-conference Workshop 
proceedings, to be published by Springer as part of the Service Science series. 
At least one author is expected to register for and showcase the demonstration 
at the ICSOC 2011 conference in Paphos.
