The ICSOC PhD Symposium 2018 is an international forum for PhD students working in all areas related to the service-oriented computing. The goals of the symposium are:
We particularly encourage PhD students that are still developing their research methodology or are somewhere in the middle of their research program to submit to this symposium. Only active PhD students are eligible to submit, and topics are restricted to their doctoral work within the scope of the ICSOC conference.
The symposium will be the 16th edition of the series held in conjunction with the ICSOC conferences in Malaga, Spain (2017), Banff-Alberta, Canada (2016), Goa, India (2015), Paris, France (2014), Berlin, Germany (2013), Shanghai, China (2012), Paphos, Cyprus (2011), San Francisco, USA (2010), Stockholm, Sweden (2009), Sydney, Australia (2008), Vienna, Austria (2007), Chicago, USA (2006), and Amsterdam, the Netherlands (2005).
Submitted papers should give a clear description of the PhD work. In particular, papers must:
Each paper must be formatted according to the Springer's LNCS Format and must be at most 6 pages in length (strictly enforced). Submissions must be single-authored, and the name of the supervisor(s) must be clearly marked as ("supervised by ...") under the PhD author name. Papers must be submitted electronically, in PDF format, via the PhD Symposium track in the ICSOC Submission System. Accepted papers presented at the Symposium will be included in the ICSOC 2018 post-conference proceedings of satellite events, to be published by Springer as part of the Service Science series. Each submission will be reviewed by three members of the PhD Symposium Program Committee.
