International Workshop on
Methodologies for Non-functional Properties in Services Computing (MNPSC)

July 8 (Tue), 2008
Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

In conjunction with IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2008)

In cooperation with Object Management Group

Workshop's Aim

In services computing, it is critical to better identify, specify, implement and manage non-functional properties separately from functional properties. Well-managed separation/synthesis of functional and non-functional properties can significantly improve reusability, maintainability, composability and performance of service-oriented applications. This workshop aims providing an opportunity for both academic researchers and industry practitioners to present, discuss and access the state of the art and practice of engineering non-functional properties in services computing.

Topics of interest are listed below; however, submissions on all non-functional aspects in services computing are welcome.

Paper Submissions and Presentations

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not longer than 8 pages with 10pt or 11pt font. Please follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers. Email your abstract and paper to both workshop chairs with the subject line of "IEEE MNPSC." At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the workshop and present the paper.

All accepted papers will be published in the SCC 2008 proceedings as IEEE publications.

Best Papers and Book Chapter Promotion

This workshop will select best papers. With substantial extensions, they will be promoted to chapters of a book in the "Advanced Web Services Research and Practices" book series (IGI Publishing).
