6th International Symposium on Frontiers in Network Applications, Network Systems and Web Services (SoFAST-WS'17)

Prague, Czech Republic, 3 - 6 September, 2017


Symposium SoFAST-WS focuses on modern challenges and solutions in network systems, applications and service computing.  The Symposium builds upon the success of Frontiers in Network Applications and Network Systems (FINANS’2012) and 4th International Symposium on Web Services (WSS’ 2012) held in 2012 in Wroclaw, Poland. These two events are now integrated into one event to fully exploit the synergy of topics and cooperation of research groups.

The topics discussed during the symposium include different aspects of network systems, applications and service computing. The primary objective of the symposium is to bring together researchers and practitioners analyzing, developing and administering network systems, with particular emphasis on Internet systems. Authors are invited to submit their papers in English, presenting the results of original research or innovative practical applications in the field.
