About the workshop
Service-oriented computing (SOC) facilitates the interoperability of various, generally heterogeneous networking systems. After successful deployment in the Internet and broadband networks, the latest trend is to introduce SOC into Disconnected, Intermittent and Limited (DIL) wireless/mobile networking environments, which are typical scenarios for rural area networks, vehicular networks, battlefield networks and other resource-constrained or disadvantaged networks. Efficient and effective interoperability in these networks is highly demanded for various mission-critical application scenarios such as disaster relief in ravaged regions, search and rescue in remote areas and military/tactical operations in hostile environments. We welcome papers concerned with all aspects of innovative design, implementation, deployment, evaluation and recommendation of SOC-based systems in DIL environments. In particular, the workshop solicits papers addressing the following topics:

  • Architecture, design, implementation and evaluation of SOC-based communication systems and services for DIL environments
  • Case studies involving DIL environments utilizing SOC in various stages of development or use cases
  • Analysis, modelling and characterization of DIL networks, and their impact on SOC-based services
  • SOC service composition, deployment, discovery and life cycle management in DIL environments such as vehicular networks, disaster relief, military tactical networks, emergency management
  • Adaptive, collaborative, location-aware, mission-critical and other smart applications in DIL environments
  • Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) in DIL environments
  • Quality of Information (QoI) and Value of Information (VoI) in DIL environments
  • Security, mobility, network virtualization, connectivity/routing, energy and medium access control solutions in DIL environments to enable improved SOC
  • Cross-layer optimizations in DIL environments for enhanced SOC performance
  • Emulation or simulation tools, and test beds for evaluating SOC interoperability in DIL environments
  • The application of cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT) in DIL environments.
  • Standardization and recommendations
