8th European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing (ESOCC 2020)

April 1-3, 2020, Heraklion, Crete, Greece

=== SCOPE ===

Service-oriented and cloud computing have made a huge impact both on the software industry and on the research community. Today, service and cloud technologies are applied to build large-scale software landscapes as well as to provide single software services to end users. Services today are independently developed and deployed as well as freely composed while they can be implemented in a variety of technologies, a quite important fact from a business perspective. Similarly, cloud computing aims at enabling flexibility by offering a centralized sharing of resources. The industry\’s need for agile and flexible software and IT systems has made cloud computing the dominating paradigm for provisioning computational resources in a scalable, on-demand fashion. Nevertheless, service developers, providers, and integrators still need to create methods, tools and techniques to support cost-effective and secure development as well as use of dependable devices, platforms, services and service-oriented applications in the cloud.

The European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing (ESOCC) is the premier conference on advances in the state of the art and practice of service-oriented and cloud computing in Europe. The main objectives of the conference are to facilitate the exchange between researchers and practitioners in the areas of service-oriented and cloud computing, as well as to explore new trends and foster future collaborations in Europe and beyond.
