International Workshop on the
Engineering of Software Services for Pervasive Environments (ESSPE '07)
at ESEC/FSE 2007 - Dubrovnik, Croatia, September 4, 2007
Two trends in information and communication technologies will converge over the next 10 years: Software Services and Pervasive Environments. Both have received considerable individual attention, but the complexities of their interaction and integration have yet to be faced.
- How do we design and develop services that can operate within a pervasive, ubiquitous, and highly dynamic computing environment, one that may involve activities spanning home, work, and nomadic movement?
- How do we provide guarantees of correctness, robustness, resilience, trust, and security when the number of devices, contexts, and users grows to encompass large portions of society and life?
- How do we maintain software systems whose component services may be developed by a variety of different organizations, and deployed and operated for many years?
This workshop looks specifically at the software engineering challenges that underlie these questions.
Workshop organized as an initiative of the PLASTIC consortium
