Call for Papers


The topics of the ZEUS workshop are centered around service-technology, which includes a rich set of facets. 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. ZEUS also calls for contributions in the field of Cloud Computing, RESTful services, and microservices.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
  • Service lifecycle: analysis, specification, modelling, testing, deployment, execution, monitoring, adaptation
  • Patterns, languages, reference models, and model extensions
  • Multi-view and multi-perspective engineering (SOA, choreographies, collaborations, conversations, artifact-centric systems)
  • Formal methods, models, simulation, and verification
  • System architectures for service composition
  • RESTful Web services (design aspects, hypermedia, linked data, mashups, conversations)
  • Microservices and Nanoservices (architecture, lifecycle, deployment, composition)
  • Workflows, business processes, and business decisions (modelling, execution, analysis, mining, as well as papers on blockchains and BPM)
  • Complex event processing (correlation, aggregation, transformation, monitoring, extraction)
  • Security, compliance, and non-functional requirements and properties
  • Cloud-enabled applications, migration to/from the Cloud, Cloud Integration, Serverless Computing
  • Composable big data analytics Pipelines
  • Applications, frameworks, methods, tool demonstrations, and case studies
  • Additional computer science topics not explicitly mentioned are appreciated as well


We are looking forward to three types of contributions for ZEUS. All papers must be submitted following the instructions at the ZEUS submission site handled by EasyChair:

Results can be presented in talks or tool demonstrations. Submissions will be reviewed by at least three reviewers each in order to assure general fitness regarding content, readability, and scope and to give first feedback to the authors. Depending on novelty of the contribution, technical soundness of the approach, and clarity of the presentation, papers may be rejected or accepted as position papers or workshop papers.

Workshop papers

Workshop papers are “regular” contributions that describe original solutions in field of ZEUS. These papers must not exceed 6 pages. The 6 pages do not include references, so there is more space for your work. Workshop papers are reviewed according to the call for papers. Accepted papers shall be included in the proceedings and presented at the workshop.

Position papers

Position papers should draft a new idea and put it up for discussion at the workshop. Position papers should only be an extended abstract and must not exceed 3 pages without references. Position papers are briefly reviewed according to the call for papers. The main idea and the relation to existing work should be contained. Accepted papers shall be included in the proceedings. Position papers allow authors to get early feedback during the workshop, but should not disallow extending the paper to a full paper submitted to a first class conference – even if the position paper is referenced and the delta is explained properly.

Tool demonstrations

ZEUS also offers a forum to demonstrate implementations of techniques and algorithms in the area of the aforementioned topics to get early feedback and provide interesting insights for the audience. Tool demonstrators are asked to submit a demo script of no more than 3 pages without references which states how the tool is linked to the call for papers and what to expect during the demonstration.
