Accepted Workshops

The following workshops will be colocated with the European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing (ESOCC) 2022 and will take place in Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Germany, March 22 – 24th 2022:

2nd International Workshop on Edge Adoption and Migration (EdgeWays 2022) – cancelled

Edge Computing reallocates part of the cloud resources to the edge of the network and therefore, close proximity to the data generating/consuming devices, which brings huge benefits in scenarios where the traditional cloud fails to meet certain quality requirements. As an increasing number of organizations are investigating the potential of extending their cloud environments by placing some of their services on the edge, it is mandatory to develop methods, tools and frameworks to help introducing edgification coupled with a clear process of edge migration. 

The 2nd International Workshop on Edge Adoption and Migration (EdgeWays 2022) aims to bring together cloud and edge computing experts from academia and industry from different IT communities, e.g., edge computing, cloud computing, IoT, software engineering, services computing, big data, information systems, etc. Its main goals are to promote discussions and collaboration amongst participants, to help disseminate novel edge computing practices and solutions, and to identify future edge computing challenges and dimensions. To this end, the workshop will foster a more interactive participation model, in which authors, invited speakers and attendees will be encouraged to socially engage beyond the planned workshop activities.

International Workshop on AI for Web Application Infrastructure and Cloud Platform Security (AWACS 2022)

Artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) techniques can help DevOps and SecOps teams run cloud services and the underlying web-based information systems in a highly secure and efficient manner. They can gain an accurate and comprehensive understanding of security incidents along the entire system stack, such as unexpected application performance degradation due to network attacks or malicious end-user activity, and proactively initiate appropriate countermeasures. AI-based cross-domain attack detection and orchestrated mitigation have the potential to improve the capabilities of security and risk management systems overall.

The Int. Workshop on AI for Web Application Infrastructure and Cloud Platform Security (AWACS 2022) will focus on the general applicability and integration of AI/ML methods in the area of security and risk management in the context of modern web-based information systems. In addition to the automated, domain-specific detection of threats and the determination of countermeasures, a special focus will be placed on the fusion and integration of domain-specific detectors.

17th International Workshop on Engineering Service-Oriented Applications and Cloud Services (WESOACS 2022) – cancelled

Distributed service-oriented systems represent the most effective way for delivering functional systems to clients. Cloud computing alleviates the need to purchase and maintain expensive and sophisticated hardware in order to support data processing and storing. Cloud computing systems minimize upfront investment, while at the same time promise to offer high levels of performance, high availability, on demand scalability and elasticity, and fault tolerance. In addition, there has been a shift towards the DevOps approach to software development where software development and operation processes are continuous and inseparable. Using DevOps, the main stakeholders that produce and support software services (microservices) possess a mixture of coding skills and system operation skills. DevOps represent a growing trend that prescribes management of development and operations activities focusing on faster application delivery with automated release and deployment, embracing agile approaches to development automating tasks, including testing, deployment, and reconfiguration.
This workshop focuses on software engineering issues in the context of service-oriented systems and especially on modern trends of cloud native microservices and associated DevOps approaches, as well as their application in challenging areas like smart data processing and Industry 4.0. The aim of the workshop is to facilitate exchange and evolution of ideas in service engineering research across multiple disciplines and to encourage participation of researchers from academia and industry. WESOACS 2022 continues a successful series of workshops that started at ICSOC 2005 in Amsterdam and encourages new approaches that address challenges arising from unique characteristics of service-oriented applications and cloud services, focusing on principles, methodologies, techniques and tools that support a service-oriented system development life cycle.

Workshop Paper Submissions, Publication & Registration


Only original papers, not submitted for publication elsewhere, will be accepted. These papers should be 12 pages long including references. They must be formatted according to the LNCS proceedings guidelines. Each selected workshop will explicate the way the papers will be submitted.  


Reviewed and accepted workshop papers are planned to be published with Springer Nature in the CCIS series as post conference proceedings, which will be produced by the conference.  The workshop chairs, presenters and participants will be required to register for the workshop through the ESOCC 2022 main registration page.
