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.
