About ZEUS

Discuss your fresh ideas

We offer a forum to discuss ideas at a level that is more work-in-progress than in a traditional conference. We thereby want to attract especially PhD students in the early phases of their work. Participants can get feedback from outside their group before submitting a paper to a reviewed conference. This makes ZEUS an original opportunity to discuss ideas.

Practice Scientific Work

We see the ZEUS workshop as an opportunity to practice the whole range of scientific work. We do not take the sole focus on the submitted papers, but also on the presentations and the discussions in the workshop. To this end, we hand out a Best Presentation Award since 2010 at the end of the workshop to appreciate high quality presentations.

Establish a network of young researchers

We aim at bringing together young researchers who work in the same geographic region and scientific field. This way, we provide an opportunity for people to establish a scientific network. The workshop will serve as a platform to present current research ideas and research directions. Past editions of the ZEUS workshop have led to new research collaborations which resulted in scientific publications at top conferences in the field.

Publishing and Indexing

The workshop proceedings are published using CEUR Workshop Proceedings (CEUR-WS.org) and is indexed at the dblp computer science bibliography. We encourage the authors to submit follow-up works to first class conferences.

Call for Papers

Camera-ready version:
Post-workshop proceedings version:

Workshop Papers

Workshop papers are regular contributions that describe original solutions in field of ZEUS. These papers must not exceed 6 pages (LNCS style). Workshop papers are reviewed according to the Call for Papers.
Accepted papers shall be included in the proceedings and presented at the workshop.

Position Paper

Position papers should draft a new idea and put it up for discussion at the workshop. Position papers should only be an extended abstract and must not exceed 3 pages (LNCS style). Position papers are briefly reviewed according to the Call for Papers. The main idea and the relation to existing work should be contained. Accepted papers shall be included in the proceedings. Position papers allow authors to get early feedback during the workshop, but should not disallow extending the paper to a full paper submitted to a first class conference – even if the position paper is referenced and the delta is explained properly.

Tool Demonstration

ZEUS also offers a forum to demonstrate implementations of techniques and algorithms in the area of the aforementioned topics to get early feedback and provide interesting insights for the audience. Tool demonstrators are asked to submit a demo script of not more than 3 pages (LNCS style) which states how the tool is linked to the Call for Papers and what to expect during the demonstration.
The LNCS style can be downloaded here.
The ZEUS workshop series is indexed in DBLP.


Topics include, but are not limited to:

Service lifecycle: analysis, specification, modelling, testing, deployment, execution, monitoring, adaptation

Patterns, languages, reference models, and model extensions

Multi-view and multi-perspective engineering (SOA, choreographies, collaborations, artifact-centric systems)

Formal methods, models, simulation, and verification

System architectures for service composition

RESTful Web services (design aspects, hypermedia, linked data, mashups, conversations)

Microservices and Nanoservices (architecture, lifecycle, deployment, composition)

Workflows and business processes

Complex event processing (correlation, aggregation, transformation, monitoring, extraction)

Security, compliance, and non-functional requirements and properties

Cloud-enabled applications, migration to/from the Cloud, Cloud Integration

Composable Big Data Analytics Pipelines

Applications, frameworks, methods, tool demonstrations, and case studies


All papers must be submitted following the instructions at the ZEUS 2019 submission site, handled by EasyChair (click here). Results can be presented in talks or tool demonstrations. Submissions will be reviewed by at least three reviewers each in order to assure general fitness regarding content, readability and scope and to give first feedback to the authors. Depending on innovation, technical soundness and presentation clarity, papers may be rejected or accepted as position, workshop or tool demonstration papers.
