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 Computing and Cloud Computing in Europe. ESOCC has evolved from the ECOWS (European Conference on Web Services) conference series. The first edition of the new series, ESSOC 2012, was successfully held in Bertinoro, Italy, the second edition, ESOCC 2013, was held in Malaga, Spain, the third edition, ESOCC 2014 was held in Manchester, UK, the fourth edition, ESOCC 2015, in Taormina (Messina), Italy, and the 5th edition, ESOCC 2016, in Vienna, Austria. It will be continued with ESOCC 2017 in Oslo.

The main objectives of this conference are to facilitate the exchange between researchers and practitioners in the areas of Service-oriented Computing and Cloud Computing and to foster future collaborations in Europe and beyond. ESOCC 2017 will include invited talks and presentations of selected research papers with the participation of top researchers from academia and industry. ESOCC 2017 will also include a PhD Symposium and a series of satellite workshops.
