Workshop on "European Software Services and Systems Research - Results and Challenges"

In conjunction with the 34th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE)

Zurich, Switzerland -- June 5, 2012


The rapid evolution of software technology has brought monumental changes to virtually every market sector and has created enormous opportunities for innovation. One such opportunity is developing innovative systems through the composition of software services available over the Internet. Those services have the power to provide utility to users in a much more dynamic and flexible way than is possible with traditional software technology. However, service-oriented systems and their corresponding software services require fundamental changes to the way software is developed, deployed and maintained. Software that constitutes a service-oriented system is no longer owned by on single organization but is distributed and shared amongst many organizations. This distributed ownership opens up a whole range of research challenges, including the design, evolution, adaptation and quality assurance of service-oriented systems.

This workshop will outline and demonstrate results of fundamental research carried out within S-Cube, the European Network of Excellence on Software Services and Systems. S-Cube brings together 33 research organizations across Europe from disciplines extending beyond traditional realms of software engineering, including cloud computing, business process management and service-oriented computing.

The workshop will also serve as a springboard to discuss software engineering research challenges for future service-oriented systems. Future software technology and methods will need to cope with trends such as the convergence of the Internet of Things and services; novel life-cycle models where the boundary between design and runtime will increasingly blur; online quality prediction and proactive adaptation; as well as novel architectural styles for large-scale, long-living service-oriented systems.

Final Programme

The workshop will showcase research outcomes on software services and systems research, as well as provide an outlook and discussion of future research challenges on software services and systems.
