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
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.
Topics of Interest
- Individual non-functional properties/requirements (e.g., QoS, security, fault tolerance, messaging, reliability, availability, service discovery, service orchestration/composition, data integration and data retention) in various
(enterprise to embedded) service-oriented applications.
- Methodologies to map non-functional requirements and properties
- Non-functional properties/requirements in requirements engineering
- Non-functional properties/requirements in business process/rule engineering
- Architecture description languages, service description languages, modeling languages and
domain-specific languages for non-functional properties/requirements
- Object-oriented and aspect-oriented techniques for non-functional properties
- Model-driven engineering for non-functional properties/requirements
- Software development process and non-functional properties/requirements
- QoS monitoring/provisioning and service level agreements for non-functional properties/requirements
- Regulatory compliance and non-functional properties/requirements
- Ontology frameworks for non-functional properties/requirements
- Middleware support for non-functional properties/requirements
- Tool support to separate/synthesize functional and non-functional properties
- Theoretical foundations/tools for non-functional properties/requirements
- Industrial experience and standardization on non-functional properties/requirements
