Call for Papers

SummerSOC solicits papers describing original research that are peer-reviewed. In addition to novel research work we also seek application and experience papers as well as overview papers (these submissions have to be marked accordingly). At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to attend SummerSoC 2016. The best papers will be published in a special issue of the Computing Journal (Springer). All accepted papers will be published in an IBM Research Report. We recommend that authors submit a one page abstract on which they will receive early brief feedback; camera-ready paper submission and review will follow.

We invite submissions on the following topics:

  • Developing services for the cloud

    • Moving existing services to the cloud
