The 7th Central-European Workshop on Services and their Composition (ZEUS 2015)

will take place at the University of Jena, Germany on February 19 and 20, 2015.


Participation is free of charge!




ZEUS focuses on the discussion of fresh ideas, the presentation of work in

progress, and the establishment of a scientific network between young

researchers in the region.

1. Discuss fresh ideas

We offer a forum to discuss ideas at a level that is more work-in-progress than

in a traditional conference. We thereby want to attract especially PhD students

in the early phases of their work. Participants can get feedback from outside

their group before a submission to a reviewed conference. This makes ZEUS an

original opportunity to discuss ideas.

2. Practice scientific work

We see the ZEUS workshop as an opportunity to practice the whole range of

scientific work. We do not take the sole focus on the submitted papers, but

also in the presentations and the discussions on the workshop. To this end, we

hand out a Best Presentation Award since 2010 at the end of the workshop to

appreciate high quality presentations.

3. Establish contacts between young researchers in the region

We aim at bringing together young researchers who work in the same geographic

and the same scientific region. This way, we would like to provide an

opportunity for people to establish a scientific network that can be intensely

used, including mutual visits at affordable costs. The workshop will serve as a

platform to present current research ideas and research directions.



The topics of the ZEUS workshop are centered around service technology, which

includes a rich set of facets. The purpose of analysis, synthesis or simulation

of service compositions are as welcome as practical evaluations, use

case-driven feasibility studies, or technology adoption models. ZEUS also calls

for contributions in the field of Cloud computing and RESTful services.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Aspects around the service lifecycle (analysis, specification, modeling,

 testing, deployment, execution, monitoring)

- Patterns, languages, and reference models

- Multi-view and multi-perspective engineering (SOA, choreographies,

 collaborations, conversations, artifact-centric systems)

- Formal methods, models, simulation and verification

- RESTful systems (design aspects, hypermedia, linked data, mashups, other

 protocols, ...)

- Workflows and business processes

- Complex event processing (correlation, aggregation, transformation,

 monitoring, extraction)

- Security, compliance, and nonfunctional properties

- Cloud-enabled applications, migration to/from the Cloud, big data

- Applications, frameworks, tool demonstration, and case studies



We are looking forward to three types of contributions for ZEUS 2015. All

papers must be submitted following the instructions at the ZEUS submission site

handled by EasyChair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=zeus2015

Results can be presented in talks or tool demonstrations. Submissions will be

reviewed by at least three reviewers each in order to assure general fitness

regarding content, readability and scope and to give first feedback to the

authors. Depending on innovation, technical soundness and presentation clarity,

papers may be rejected or accepted as position or workshop paper.

Workshop papers: Workshop papers are "regular" contributions that describe

original solutions in field of ZEUS. These papers must not exceed 6 pages (LNCS

style). Workshop papers are reviewed according to the call for papers. Accepted

papers shall be included in the proceedings and presented at the workshop.

A fast-track submission process to an LNCS volume on web services and formal

methods is planned for selected workshop papers.

Positions papers: Position papers should draft a new idea and put it up for

discussion at the workshop. Position papers should only be an extended abstract

and must not exceed 3 pages (LNCS style). Position papers are briefly reviewed

according to the call for papers. The main idea and the relation to existing

work should be contained. Accepted papers shall be included in the proceedings.

Position papers have been introduced based on the experiences gained from the

last editions. They allow authors to get early feedback during the workshop,

but should not disallow extending the paper to a full paper submitted to a

first class conference -- even if the position paper is referenced and the

delta is explained properly.

Tools demonstrations: ZEUS also offers a forum to demonstrate implementations

of techniques and algorithms in the area of the aforementioned topics to get

early feedback and provide interesting insights for the audience. Tool

demonstrators are asked to submit a demo script of no more than 3 pages (LNCS

style) which states how the tool is linked to the call for papers and what to

expect during the demonstration.
