ZEUS Workshop 2012 - Call for Papers - DEADLINE EXTENDED!

The 4th Central-European Workshop on Services and their Composition (ZEUS) will take place at Otto-Friedrich-University of Bamberg, Germany, on February 23rd and 24th, 2012.
ZEUS is a free, but high-quality opportunity to discuss research work. Participation is free of charge!


Discuss fresh ideas

ZEUS is a classical scientific workshop. We are seeking creative ideas and ongoing scientific work with some preliminary results. ZEUS offers you an open-minded community of services researchers who are willing to discuss your ideas and help you improve your contents for highly ranked conferences. Your submission will be peer-reviewed by at least three independent reviewers and may be rejected, accepted as position statement or as full workshop paper. Innovation and creativity are the most important factors for ZEUS. Of course, the rules of technical correctness and scientific method must be adhered to as well.

Establish young researchers’ network

We aim at bringing together young researchers who work in the same geographic and the same scientific region. We would like to provide an opportunity for young researchers to establish a scientific network that can be intensely used, including mutual visits at affordable costs. The workshop will serve as platform to present current research ideas and research directions. Although grounded in the German-speaking services community, ZEUS is open to the European services community as a whole. Submissions and talks are expected to be provided in English.


The topics of the ZEUS workshop are centered around choreography and orchestration technology which includes a rich set of facets. Formal aspects of choreography or orchestration languages for the purpose of analysis, synthesis or simulation of service compositions are as welcome as practical evaluations, use case-driven feasibility studies or technology adoption models. In particular, the use of choreography and orchestration models by different types of stakeholders, say software engineers and domain experts, and the application of choreography and orchestration in cloud-based computing models are of major interest.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Integration of choreography and orchestration models
  • Conformance notions
  • Analysis, simulation and verification
  • Modelling and specification
  • Execution and monitoring
  • Testing, deployment and practical issues
  • Adoption models for choreography and orchestration technology
  • Value and maturity assessment
  • Multi-view and multi-perspective engineering
  • Advanced communication qualities in choreography and orchestration scenarios
  • Patterns
  • Choreographies and orchestrations in Cloud environments
  • Interoperability of language formats as well as models
