The ServiceWave conference series is committed to being the premier European forum for researchers, educators and industrial practitioners to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences and concerns in software services (or the “Future of the Internet of Service”) and related underlying infrastructure technologies. ServiceWave fosters the creation of cross-community scientific excellence by gathering industrial and academic experts from various disciplines such as business process management, distributed systems, grid and cloud computing, networking, service science and software engineering.
ServiceWave 2010 was the third edition of the series. The first edition was held in Madrid in 2008 and the second one in Stockholm in 2009, in conjunction withthe International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing (ICSOC 2009). ServiceWave 2010 took place in the lovely city of Ghent in Belgium, during December 13–15, 2010.
This year again, the program featured a rich selection of quality contributions. The strict review process yielded an acceptance rate of about 30%.
Out of 49 submissions, the Program Committee selected 15 research papers for presentation at the conference and its publication as full papers in this volume. Reviews were performed by at least three members of the Program Committee.
This volume constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Third European Conference, ServiceWave 2010, held in Ghent, Belgium, in December 2010. The 15 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 49 submissions. They cover a broad range of subjects related to service-oriented architectures and the underlying cloud infrastructure and are organized in topical sections on cloud computing, service adaptation and identification, infrastructures, applications and mashups, and engineering of service-oriented applications. In addition to the scientific track, 24 extended abstracts of demonstrations covering a wide spectrum of technology and application domains were accepted out of 31 submissions.
