Welcome to SOSE 2017

The 11th IEEE International Symposium on

Service-Oriented System Engineering 

(SOSE 2017)

April 7-10, 2017,  San Francisco, CA, USA

Sponsored by: IEEE Computer Society

Starting from 2005, the International Symposium on Service-Oriented System Engineering (SOSE) is one of the pioneering symposia devoted to the research and development in engineering service-oriented systems, from the architecture and computing paradigm to the system development and management. Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) exploits services as the fundamental elements in developing and operating computer-based systems. It has been successfully applied to various application domains and promotes fundamental changes to system architecture, especially changing the way software systems to be analyzed, architected, designed, implemented, verified, evaluated, delivered, consumed, maintained, and evolved.

The innovations of SOC also offer many interesting avenues of research for scientific and industrial communities. Recent advances in service oriented computing and cloud computing, including computational power, storage, and networking, and infrastructure innovations, are providing exciting opportunities to make significant progress in understanding and addressing complex real-world challenges. Such challenges typically require a system-level approach that models a complex system at different levels of abstraction, helps to develop sound architectures for addressing separate system requirements and concerns, and integrates diverse sources of knowledge on the system's components and their interactions.

The 11th International Symposium on Service-Oriented System Engineering (SOSE 2017) provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present and exchange latest observations, insights, achievements, and visions in the Service-Oriented System Engineering. Particularly, SOSE 2017 invites original submissions in all the aspects of the system engineering and software engineering methods, techniques, tools, applications, and experiments for software services.
