The 22nd International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing ICSOC’2024 continues the effort of the ICSOC community to showcase innovative tools or research prototypes and promote reusable research resources.
Submitting a paper to ICSOC Demos and Resources will give authors/you the opportunity to:

  • Share and discuss your ideas and work at an international event, which can act as a stimulus for eventual collaboration,
  • Gain experience in submitting and presenting their Demos and sharing their Resources,
  • Network and collaborate with peers.


We invite submissions of high-quality demonstrations and resources. We particularly encourage submissions related to the focus areas of the conference:

Focus Area 1: Service Oriented Technology Basics and Trends
Focus Area 2: AI for Services and as-a-Service
Focus Area 3: Novel Service Frameworks for Cloud Continuum and Smart Environments
Focus Area 4: Emerging Technologies

However, contributions related to all facets of Service Oriented Computing are also welcome, including:
  • Novel Service Applications and Implementations, including:
    • Data Science
    • Artificial Intelligence (AI)-enabled Services and Process Automation
    • Crowdsourcing and Social Services
    • Internet of Things (IoT) Services
    • Cloud and Edge Services
    • Quantum Services
    • Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality
  • Service-oriented Architecture Showcases
  • Design-support tools (platforms, Open APIs, low-code solutions)
  • Integration platform for SOA, SaaS, and APIs
  • Best practices for microservices and API
  • Resources originating either from academic initiatives or industrial experiences, including:
    • Datasets
    • Taxonomies
    • Labeled and annotated logs and corpora
    • Quantitative/qualitative benchmarks

At the conference, the work described in the paper will be presented as a demo. We seek demos that explicitly give the audience the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with these technologies or demonstrate interactively how the tool, method or technique can be applied (e.g., participants may try out the tools in an experiment-like and role-playing setting).
When preparing their demo paper, we encourage authors to distribute their demonstration in an easy-to-use form, such as a virtual machine image, a software container (e.g., Docker), or a system configuration (e.g., Puppet, Ansible, Salt, CFEngine) to promote usability.

Demonstrations Submissions

Submissions accepted for the Demos and Resources track will be notified to the authors and advertised on the ICSOC 2024 website. Accepted submissions will be included in the post-conference proceedings. Each submission must consist of a paper (maximum length 5 pages) where the authors should highlight the significance of the tool or the resource for the ICSOC Community, the innovation of the tool or the resource, its main characteristics or features and the necessary bibliographical references. Moreover, the paper should contain the following elements:

  • For tools demonstrations: a description aimed at demonstrating the maturity of the tool, the technologies used, the use cases on which the tool could be applied, the tool features such as scalability and usability; the paper should contain a URL linking to a demonstration video of no more than 5 minutes in duration (QuickTime or YouTube format) showing and explaining the execution of the system; finally, the paper should provide the organizers with a list of requirements for the demo setting at the conference;
  • For resources expositions: a description of the data model and schema of the resource, to help the reader understand how to interpret the information from the exposed resource; descriptive statistics of the resource; instructions on how to download and use the resource, with focus on specific use cases; a link to a publicly accessible and persistently available repository (e.g., GitHub, BitBucket, etc.) to download and cite the resource, including all necessary license specifications.

The paper should be prepared using the Springer’s LNCS Formatting Guidelines. Submissions must be in English and Anonymous. All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF to the Demo Submission System in

For each accepted paper, at least one author must attend the conference and present the paper.

Review Criteria

The submission and selection process for the ICSOC 2024 Demos and Resources will be separate from that of the main conference. Each submission will be assessed by the Demos Program Committee. The authors will receive a brief evaluation report with the notification. The evaluation criteria are:

  • Relevance to the ICSOC conference: does the proposed demo fit the themes of the conference?
  • Significance and originality: ss the demo sufficiently novel with respect to the state-of-the-art?
  • Content and presentation: is the demo clearly presented? To what extent can the content of the paper be understood by the general ICSOC public?
  • Availability of material and clarity of instructions. Can the reviewers and researchers install and reuse the proposed material?
  • Potential interest. Will the demo raise the interest of the ICSOC audience? Will the audience be able to provide useful feedback to the authors? Can the demo lead to potential discussion and collaboration?

Best Demonstration Award

The “Best Demonstration” Awards will be given to the demos that the Demonstration Program Committee judges to be the best in quality, execution, and impact among all the accepted demos in the conference.
