Introduction

Starting from 2005, SOSE is a pioneering IEEE sponsored international conference devoted to the research in engineering service-oriented systems. It covers all aspects of Service-Oriented Engineering from architectures, techniques, tools and languages to methodologies. Continuing the tradition of the last sixteen editions of SOSE Symposia, the 18th SOSE intends to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange latest observations, insights, achievements and visions in Service-Oriented System Engineering.

This years’ conference is scheduled to take place in the Shanghai, China, from 15-18 July 2024. SOSE 2024 is part of the IEEE International Congress On Intelligent And Service-Oriented Systems Engineering offering a broad spectrum of international events, sharing renowned keynotes and fostering exchange among researchers and practicioners (see common homepage for all colocated events).

SOSE 2024 invites original submissions in all the areas of the system engineering and software engineering methods, techniques, tools, applications, and experiments for software services. For details, important dates and accepted paper categories, please see the Call for Papers Pages

SOSE is the conference for Service-Oriented Engineering topics since 2005

Service-Oriented Computing exploits services as the fundamental elements of computer-based systems. It has been applied to various areas and promotes fundamental changes to the way software systems are being analyzed, architected, designed, implemented, tested, evaluated, delivered, consumed, maintained and evolved. Consequently, a new paradigm of software and system engineering discipline, i.e., Service-Oriented Engineering, has emerged and advanced rapidly in the past decade. Among many remarkable milestones in the development of this new paradigm are the wide adoption of the Microservices architectural style supported by Docker and other container-based virtualization techniques in the design of cloud native applications in the industry, and the DevOps movement in the organization of development processes supported by automated tools for continuous testing, continuous integration, and continuous delivery. Recent advances in Service-Oriented Computing (SOC), in particular Internet-of-Things, Industry 4.0, Edge and Fog computing, mobile and cloud computing combined with Big Data analytics, robotics, quantum computing, blockchain and decentralized ledger applications, and application of artificial intelligence and deep learning techniques, etc., have provided exciting opportunities to make significant progress in understanding and solving complex real-world challenges. Such challenges typically require a system-level approach that models a complex system at different levels of abstraction, helps to develop sound architectures for addressing separate system requirements and concerns, and integrates diverse sources of knowledge in the system’s components and their interactions. Therefore, the revolution of the software and system engineering paradigm brought by service-orientation is still unfolding, with each new technology development bringing new challenges and opportunities.
