Announcing SOCNE 2015

The 9th International Workshop on Service-Oriented Cyber-Physical Systems in Converging Networked Environments (SOCNE) will be held in conjunction with the 20th IEEE International Conference on Emerging Technologies and Factory Automation (ETFA’2015) on September 8th 2015 in Walferdange, Luxembourg. As in the past, the workshop is a great opportunity to learn about latest advances in SOAs and ROAs for embedded and cyber-physical systems and to get in touch with researchers and authorities in this field.

Aim and topics

Smart and reliable service interoperability and composition across heterogeneous platforms and networking environments build the foundation for added-value services. Their key requirement is seamless, well-defined and potentially cross-sectorial interoperability among stakeholders on application-, service- and device level. Interoperability has become a competitive factor for many industrial branches such as automotive, aerospace, energy, healthcare or factory and building automation. At the same time it serves as an application enabler for cross-domain business as envisioned e.g. for electro mobility, smart grid or even cooperative engineering.

This workshop encourages communication and exchange of ideas between industrial and academic researchers and developers in the field of preferably embedded middleware, service-oriented architectures and heterogeneous networked environments. It follows the whole path from system engineering over system implementation to system testing and leverages the discussion about industrial practices and future trends.

From this perspective, the workshop is focused on (but not restricted to) the following subjects:

Architectures and Design Principals

  • Platforms, frameworks and tools support
  • Configuration & management
  • Creation, deployment, life cycle management
  • System security, validation and testing
  • Functional safety
  • Semantic web services & web services ontology
  • Real-time SOA
  • Verification and testing
  • Decentralized/peer-to-peer architectures for device/application networking

Service platforms for CPS

  • Service platforms for cyber-physical systems
  • Service platforms for smart grid, energy management, energy metering, and electro mobility

  • SOA in industrial environments

Networked embedded systems, IoT & CPS

  • Technologies for interworking smart objects
  • Embedded web services
  • SOA for/on/in devices and embedded systems
  • Device centric SOAs and RESTful environments
  • Real-time embedded networked applications and systems
  • Web services and middleware for networked embedded systems
  • Resource constrained and low power lossy networks
  • Scalability, reliability, safety and security aspects
