The Second IEEE International Workshop on the Future of Software Engineering for/in the Cloud (FoSEC- 2012)

One day between June 24-29 2012, Hyatt Regency Waikiki Resort and Spa, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
within IEEE SERVICES 2012


Practitioners are very likely to beg, borrow, and steal from software engineering in-the-small to benefit the case of software engineering for the ultra-large-scale, as it is the case of the cloud. Though the fundamentals of engineering software in both paradigms exhibit resemblance, software engineering for the cloud require novel approaches, which address the interplay between technical, economics-driven considerations and shifts software engineering towards a utility-based engineering for software-, infrastructure-, data storage- and/or platform- as a services.

The goal of this workshop is to address these gaps by strengthening the cross-fertilization of advances from software engineering, service and cloud computing. The workshop will explore, debate, and increase our understanding to the following:
(i) how recent advances in software engineering (with an emphasis on software architectures, architecting dependable systems, self-adaptive software architectures, economics-driven software engineering, risk management, security software engineering, green software engineering and testing) can be directly related to the case of cloud.
(ii) what are the most recent innovations, trends, results, experiences and concerns in the field that appraise the paradigm-shift in engineering software systems as cloud services and to develop a roadmap for future research directions in software engineering for the cloud.

The workshop thus aims to bridge the gap between software engineering and cloud computing by specifically addressing the software engineering challenges for software engineering for and in the cloud.

Important dates

(Workshop chairs can grant extension to individuals under special circumstances provided that the hard deadline for the camera-ready version is respected.)

Paper submission

Authors are invited to submit full papers (about 8 pages) or short papers (about 4 pages) as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines (download instruction). All papers should be in PDF and submitted via at the submission system

First time users need to register with the system first. All the accepted papers by the workshops will be included in the Proceedings of the Seventh IEEE 2012 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2012) which will be published by IEEE Computer Society.
