Workshop theme and goals

The service-oriented paradigm is emerging as a new way to engineer
applications that are exposed as services for possible use through
standardized protocols. Service-oriented applications are pushing
traditional software engineering problems - distribution,
componentization, composition, requirements, specification,
verification, and evolution - to their extreme. Services are in fact
distributed and may be composed to form new added-value
services. Moreover, they are developed, deployed, and evolved by
different organizations. Services are exposed for possible use, and a
faithful specification of their functional and non-functional
properties must be made available for other parties who may search and
discover them. Systems, implemented as composite services, must be
designed to fulfill requirements that very often evolve continuously,
and thus require adaptation of the solution. Furthermore, such systems
depend on their combined services, which, in turn, may evolve
autonomously. Research on service-oriented systems is presently
focusing on many topics, all of which are in the scope of PESOS. The
aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers from academia
and industry, as well as practitioners working in the area to discuss
important issues, recent developments, applications, methods,
techniques, experience reports, and tools to support the engineering
and use of service oriented systems. Special emphasis will be put on
the effects that continuous evolution and adaptation will exert on
service-oriented systems. Evolution is a consequence of continuous and
rapid changes in the requirements and business goals. Adaptation is a
consequence of changes in the environment in which systems are
embedded and changes in the component services and may require the
definition and the execution of proper self-adaptation mechanisms. The
workshop will call for special attention on how to achieve evolution
and adaptation in a secure and dependable way, focusing on aspects of
engineering service-based systems:  
- specification, design, implementation, verification, deployment, and 
operation of service-oriented systems,  
- realization with distributed infrastructures that support them,  
- alignment with business processes.  

Paper submission 

Participants are encouraged to submit position papers and full
papers. Position papers should highlight open problems and future
challenges in the field. Full papers could describe novel research
contributions that are not mature enough to be submitted to
conferences as well as experience reports. All papers should be in
the two columns IEEE format required for the ICSE technical papers
(see, must be
submitted in PDF format, and submitted via the dedicated web-site that
will be indicated soon. Position paper should be at most 4 pages long
while full papers at most 8 pages. All submitted contributions will be
reviewed by three reviewers and will be evaluated based on their
quality, relevance, originality, and significance. Accepted
contributions will be published in the ACM digital library within the
ICSE 2009 workshop proceedings.  

Workshop format

The workshop will be organized around paper presentation sessions and
at least one discussion session. A keynote speach is also
foreseen. More details on the organization will be provided right
after the acceptance of papers.
