Thanks to the flexibility and scalability of cloud-based and service-based solutions, their impact and diffusion in the industry have been huge. ESOCC 2018 Industrial Track aims at making this diffusion visible and appreciated, by selecting and displaying implementations as first-class citizens in the innovation landscape.

With this aim in mind, ESOCC 2018 Industrial Track seeks original papers related to any experiences, implementations, and industrial cases, and lessons learnt related to service-oriented and cloud computing.

The topics of interest are the same of the main research track, but the expected focus is on the architectural, implementation, and industrialization aspects instead of technical and theoretical contribution.

We solicit demos, applications, tools, and showcases from both academic and industrial researchers, showing new practical contributions to service oriented and cloud based software. Authors of each accepted submission will give a short presentation of their solution. Demonstrations of the implementations or results during the session will be appreciated too.

The discussed industrial cases can consist either of commercial product features or open-source project results. We expect submissions that cover (not only) this scenarios:

  • Industrial cases. These submissions should focus on practical applications within the different activities of software architecting and should particularly show how they advance the current state of the practice in industry, or how they led to new insights and lessons learnt. New ideas and features are particularly welcome.
  • Research cases. These submissions may come from academic or industrial research environments. They are intended to highlight underlying scientific contributions and show how scientific approaches have been transferred into a working tool, system, or platform.

Both categories may range from early prototypes to in-house or pre-commercialized products.


Each contribution must be submitted in the form of a one to five (1-5)-page short paper.

For all the accepted contributions, a 5 page extended version, will be included in the conference proceedings published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (CCIS) series.

The papers, not submitted for publication elsewhere, can be submitted via Easychair (select Industry Track).

Paper submissions should be formatted according to the LNCS proceedings guidelines.
