Call for Workshop Proposals

ICSOC 2018 - The 16th International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing

The 16th International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing to be held in Hangzhou (Zhejiang, China) looks for proposals for high-quality workshops contributing to the scientific program of the main conference. The workshop program seeks to provide venues for specialist groups to meet, to generate focused discussion on specific sub-areas within Service-Oriented Computing, and to engage in community-building activities. The workshops should provide a discussion forum for researchers in topics related to main theme of the conference, either on specific research themes, or in emerging areas of research.

The workshops will be held on November 12, 2018.

Important Dates

Workshop Proposal Submissions

Workshop proposals shall be submitted to Workshop Co-chairs at and should include the following information:

Accepted Workshops

For the accepted workshops, the organizers will be responsible for the following:

In addition, all the accepted workshops should assume the following schedule for the main deadlines:

Workshop papers are typically between 8 and 12 Springer's LNCS pages long. Every workshop should manage a minimum of 5 accepted papers. Workshops not managing the minimum number of accepted papers will be suggested to join together or cancel.

Workshop Publication

ICSOC 2018 provides workshop organizers with the opportunity to publish improved versions of accepted papers as part of its dedicated post-workshop proceedings to appear in Springer’s LNCS series. The conference solicits outstanding original research and practice papers on all aspects of service-oriented computing. Papers should clearly demonstrate the research or practical contribution, the relevance to the field, and the relationship to prior work. It is likely that, as in previous years, the post-proceedings of the accepted workshops will be jointly published as a Springer volume. A formal proposal to Springer will only be made after the accepted workshops and their program committees are finalized. Workshops organizers can opt out of the volume should they wish to; a decision on this is required at workshop submission stage for planning purposes.

Working notes of the workshops (including papers to be eventually published in the joint workshop volume) can be made available during the workshops as long as they do not harm copyright constraints of the final joint ICSOC workshop proceedings.
