9th International Workshop on Service-Oriented Applications, Integration and Collaboration (SOAIC'13)
(September 11-13, 2013, Coventry, United Kingdom, in conjunction with ICEBE 2013)

Cloud services ranging from infrastructure, platform and application are more accessible all over the world. Both public and private sectors are adopting services and service-oriented applications to provide reliable and scalable functions. Meanwhile the service-oriented technologies continually evolve to support the demands for more flexibility and responsiveness under dynamic situations. There are urgent needs of service-oriented solutions which consolidate business process, domain knowledge and IT facilities in a coherent manner. How to fulfill divergent requests by leveraging well-defined services remains a great challenge nowadays.

The 2013 International Workshop on Service-Oriented Applications, Integration and Collaboration (SOAIC 2013) is an annual event since 2005. SOAIC has the mission to bridge the gap between business and information technology using service-oriented paradigms, technologies and approaches. It has established itself as a successful international forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas and experiences on service-oriented applications and technologies. The workshop seeks for paper submissions in a wide range of related topics including but not limited to the following:

  • Analysis and design methodology for Cloud service
  • Cloud service architecture and applications
  • Smarter CaaS, SaaS, and PaaS for Cloud service
  • Semantic service discovery and mining
  • Service operation, testing and management
  • Service collaboration methodology
  • Service and application flow improvement for handheld computing
  • Context-aware service and location-based service
  • Social, mobile, analytic and geographic service in Smart Planet
  • Spatial query service for mobile computing
  • Software architectures for mobile services
