The purpose of workshops is to provide a more interactive and focused platform for presenting and discussing new and emerging ideas. The format of paper presentations may include oral presentations, poster presentations, keynote lectures and panels. Depending on the number of presentations, workshops can be scheduled for 1 day or 2 days. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on CD-ROM support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier).

Our workshop presents a summary of Emerging Software as a Service and Analytics (ESaaSA), which offer innovative approaches of delivering services and making contributions to research and enterprise communities. Following the successful delivery of ESaaSA 2014, we oversee the importance of ESaaSA as a unique and rising field and all services in SaaS should always be designed, deployed and integrated. Emerging means innovative techniques and methods used for the traditional areas (finance, healthcare, education, security etc) or new areas (mobile apps, social networks, weather visualisation, Big Data processing etc). We will seek papers to demonstrate proofs-of-concept, demonstrations, design and implementations, successful case studies and use cases of adopting ESaaSA.

Self Organisation Clouds - SOCLO 2015

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers with a shared interest in the topic of designing and developing self-organising clouds. Specifically, we are interested in papers from researchers making use of self-organisation techniques to address the problems emerging from the confluence of issues in the emerging cloud: rising complexity and energy costs, problems of management and efficiency of use, the need to efficiently deploy services to a growing community of non-specialist users and the need to facilitate solutions based on heterogeneous components.
