ICSOC Welcome Meeting   The welcome meeting address

The first workshop on Cloud Service Brokerage (CSB-2013) with a focus on Methods and Mechanisms was held successfully on 2 December, 2013, in the historic city of Berlin.  The workshop, one of several making up the programme of the 11th International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing (ICSOC 2013), was organised and hosted by members of the Broker@Cloud consortium.  Papers were accepted both from within and outside the consortium, giving a combination of broad overview and technical insights into the kinds of mechanisms being devised for future Cloud service brokerage.

Six papers were chosen for the workshop's post-proceedings, which were assembled and edited during February 2014 by the workshop co-chairs, Anthony Simons, Gregoris Mentzas and Iraklis Paraskakis.  The proceedings will be published together with the other ICSOC workshop proceedings and the PhD student symposium, in a single volume by Springer Verlag.  The contents of the CSB-2013 section includes the following papers:
  • Gregoris Mentzas, Anthony J H Simons and Iraklis Paraskakis:  Cloud Service Brokerage - 2013: Methods and Mechanisms.
  • Frank Fowley, Claus Pahl and Li Zhang:  A Comparison Framework and Review of Service Brokerage Solutions for Cloud Architectures.
