The Department of Computer Science at the University of Cyprus cordially invites you to the Colloquium entitled:

Service Engineering for Scalable Service-based Applications


Speaker: Prof. Mike Papazoglou
Affiliation: Tilburg University, The Netherlands
Category: Colloquium
Location: Room 148, Faculty of Pure and Applied Sciences (FST-01), 1 University Avenue, 2109 Nicosia, Cyprus (directions)
Date: Thursday, November 18th, 2010
Time: 11:00-12:00 EET
Host: George Samaras (cssamara AT

The purpose of this talk is to report on a novel, hybrid service/cloud-engineering methodology called Cloud-enabled Service ENgineering for Scalable SErvice-based ApplicationS (or SENSES). SENSES realizes an on-demand service delivery model to guide service application developers in the development of global-reach, complex service-based applications that can be configured, deployed and operated in federated cloud computing formations. It actively supports developers in choosing and assembling functions from multiple service, platform and infrastructure providers and configures the application dynamically and optimally to address the developers operational, performance-oriented and QoS-specific application requirements. It juxtaposes these requirements with essential features of cloud implementation environments. In this way, SENSES enables the creation of a Cloud-enabled Global SOA based on architectural principles employing the cloud.
