Service Oriented Computing
2 July – 7 July 2012
The Advanced School on (SOC) brings together the best international experts on software and services with PhD students, young researchers and professionals from leading academic, research and industrial organizations across Europe and around the world. Students who attend the prestigious Erasmus Mundus International Master on Service Engineering (IMSE) participate in the Advanced School as part of their study program. Topics span the entire field of SOC from conceptual foundations to industrial applications.
In addition to high quality training, the Advanced School helps forge a new research and scientific community on Service-Oriented Computing(SOC). The Advanced School fosters the free exchange of ideas and helps the participants to network and start new cooperative research projects.
The School Directors are internationally known experts and researchers on SOC. This year the major themes of Advanced School on SOC are: Conceptual Foundations, Computing in the Clouds, People in SOCs and New Emerging Topics.
If registered at the Advanced School on SOC as a student, you can earn 3 ECTS points. The Advanced School is organized by S-Cube, TSL and FORTH-ICS and in close cooperation with the Dissemination Collaboration Working Group (DCWG), which brings together projects of the IST SSAIE unit.
This Advanced School is a continuation of a successful series of workshops on Service Science and Engineering, the first of which was held in Crete, Greece (2005) and the second in Palermo, Italy (2006). Starting from the third, the Advanced School on SOC is held regularly every year in Crete.
