ZEUS 2015 in Jena

I’d like to draw attention to the upcoming 7th Central European Workshop on Services and their Composition (ZEUS 2015). The workshop will take place on February 19-20, 2015, at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena. As usual, participation in the workshop is free of charge. From my previous experience, I can only recommend the workshop as an exceptional opportunity to get high quality feedback for your work in early stages. Next year’s ZEUS features a keynote by Stefanie Rinderle-Ma and a fast track submission process to an LNCS volume on web services and formal methods for selected papers. Moreover, I am proud to serve as a program committee member this time.

Check out the workshop website to see if ZEUS is something for you! Citing from the call for papers:

The topics of the ZEUS workshop are centered around service technology, which includes a rich set of facets. The purpose of analysis, synthesis or simulation of service compositions are as welcome as practical evaluations, use case-driven feasibility studies, or technology adoption models. ZEUS also calls for contributions in the field of Cloud computing and RESTful services.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Aspects around the service lifecycle (analysis, specification, modeling, testing, deployment, execution, monitoring)
  • Patterns, languages, and reference models
  • Multi-view and multi-perspective engineering (SOA, choreographies, collaborations, conversations, artifact-centric systems)
  • Formal methods, models, simulation and verification
  • RESTful systems (design aspects, hypermedia, linked data, mashups, other protocols, …)
  • Workflows and business processes
  • Complex event processing (correlation, aggregation, transformation, monitoring, extraction)
  • Security, compliance, and nonfunctional properties
  • Cloud-enabled applications, migration to/from the Cloud, big data
  • Applications, frameworks, tool demonstration, and case studies

ZEUS welcomes position papers and tool demonstrations, next to the normal workshop papers. The submission deadline is January 18.
