Dear colleagues, apologies for cross-posting. Please find thereafter the
call for papers for the 2019 edition of the ICSOC conference. Additional
info at

Update : A selection of the best ICSOC papers will be invited for
submission in two special issues in prestigious journals: one in
Elsevier Journal of Parallel and Distributed computing, and one in
Elsevier Future Generation of Computer Systems.

    Call for Research/Industry Papers

ICSOC, the International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing, is
the premier international forum for academics, industry researchers,
developers, and practitioners to report and share groundbreaking work in
service-oriented computing. ICSOC fosters cross-community scientific
excellence by gathering experts from various disciplines, such as
business-process management, distributed systems, computer networks,
wireless and mobile computing, cloud computing, cyber-physical systems,
networking, scientific workflows, services science, data science,
management science, and software engineering.

ICSOC provides a high-quality forum for presenting results and
discussing ideas that further our knowledge and understanding of the
various aspects (e.g. application and system aspects) related to Service
Computing applied to new application areas and gain insights into a
variety of computing, networked, and cyber-physical systems ranging from
mobile devices and Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications to large-scale
cloud computing systems and the smart grid.

ICSOC 2019 , the 17^th  event in this series, will take place in
Toulouse, France from October 28 to October 31, 2019. Following on the
ICSOC tradition, it will feature visionary keynote presentations,
research and industry presentations, workshops, tool demonstrations,
tutorials, and a Ph.D. track.
