Symposium on Future Trends in Service-Oriented Computing

June 14 to June 15, 2012

University of Potsdam
Potsdam, Germany


The symposium on "Future Trends in Service-oriented Computing" (FutureSOC) 2012 is the annual symposium of the HPI Research School and is taking place for the seventh time. FutureSOC outlines new trends in the area of Service-oriented Computing and highlights recent work of select Research School members.

As the HPI Research School is an interdisciplinary undertaking of the HPI research groups, FutureSOC covers a wide range of topics concering SOC, which include but are not limited to: cloud computing, {software, platform, infrastructure} as a service, service description, discovery and composition, service deployment, platform configuration and capacity planning, monitoring, service middleware, service-oriented architectures (SOAs), service management, information as a service, service development and maintenance, novel business models for SOAs, economical implications of web services and SOAs, service science, mobile and peer-to-peer services, data services, quality of service, exception handling, or service reliability and security.

Excellent speakers – both from industry and academia – leaders in their respective field of research, are invited to talk about their latest projects and resulting outcomes.


Find detailed information about our speakers, their topics, and all events in general in our symposium's brochure.

Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday, June 12-13, 2012

Over the years the HPI Research School has been expanded to a state in which we are excited to welcome colleagues from University of Cape Town (UCT), South Africa, the Technion, Israel, and Nanjing University, China. In order to foster collaboration and information exchange, we organized a pre-symposium activity event, so that PhD students from HPI, UCT, Technion, and NJU will get to know each other both on the social and the academic levels.
