Since its establishment as a software design style, service-oriented architecture (SOA) has taken the information and communications technology (ICT) world by storm. The keyword for this success is adaptivity: SOAs are implemented through a wide range of technologies and tools leading to numerous combinations that meet the application requirements in the desired way.

With the emergence of Industry 4.0, the development of SOAs has to deal with a specific combination of application characteristics and requirements, e.g. data-intensive tasks coupled with temporal requirements. Big Data and IoT applications are simply two general application categories that come with exactly those characteristics. The challenge is justified because SOA is simply not intended for these kinds of applications.

This special issue encourages submissions dealing with scientific challenges and solutions to potential new systems arising from the need to handle Industry 4.0 application tasks (i.e. related to IoT, Data Science, Cyber Security, etc.) with a SOA framework.

The objective of this special issue is to capture the latest advances in research topcis that include but are not limited to:

  • Foundational Aspects of SOA and High-Performance Computing
  • Standards and Specifications of Services
  • QoS and Cost of Service management
  • Services selection and recommendation
  • Uncertainty in Web/Cloud Services
  • Ontology and Semantic Web for Services Computing
  • High-Performance Cloud Computing
  • IoT Technologies for SOA
  • Smart & Future Cities and Services
  • Crowdsourcing services
  • Services Computing for Big Data
  • Linked Open Data and Web Services
  • Service-Oriented Computing for Smart Systems
  • Service-Oriented Computing for Cyber Physical Systems
  • Service Security, Privacy and Trust
  • Microservice-Based Systems and Architectures
  • Interoperability in Enterprises and Services Computing
  • Green Web Services
  • Service-based Grid/Cloud/Autonomic Computing
  • Prediction and Evaluation of Service Performance Components
