Targeting audience & relevance to co-located conferences

The SCFI 2015 visionary track theme aims at providing innovative contributions to the research and development of novel Service Composition approaches to assist the design, development, validation and execution of service-oriented applications for the FI.

SCFI 2015 constitutes a forum for scientists and engineers in academia and industry to present and discuss their latest ongoing research as well as radical new research directions that represent challenging innovations, which can advance the status quo of Service Composition when projected to the Future Internet. This visionary track theme is “by definition of its aims” straightforwardly relevant to the ICWS 2015, and SCC 2015 co-located conferences. Moreover, it is also relevant to CLOUD 2015 and MS 2015 since cloud infrastructures represent the today solution for a dynamic and flexible deployment of service compositions, and wireless and ubiquitous connectivity is the cornerstone of the FI where services are published, discovered and accessed, mainly via mobile devices.

A thematic series on Service Composition for the Future Internet in the Springer Journal of Internet Services and Applications (JISA) is devoted to SCFI 2015. Selected participants will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers after the visionary track. These extended versions will be reviewed by an international program committee, which will decide on their final publication on the thematic series.
