Call for Workshop Proposals

The European Conference On Service-Oriented And Cloud Computing (ESOCC) traditionally hosts a number of complemental workshops. These workshops aim at providing an informal setting for workshop participants to discuss technical issues, exchange research ideas, and to discuss and/or demonstrate applications. The workshops may be driven by fundamental academic interests, or by needs from specific application domains. We encourage a diversity of workshops relating to ESOCC.
