SCC 2018 Call for Papers

The 15th International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2018)
http://thescc.org/2018/
June 25 - June 30, 2018, Seattle, USA

SCC 2018 program committee invites you to contribute to the fourteenth edition of SCC, to be held on June 25 - June 30, 2018 in Seattle, USA.

SCC 2018 has obtained approval from the following journals to organize special issues based on extended versions of SCC papers:

- Special Issues in Services Transactions on Internet of Things (STIOT),
- Special Issues in Services Transactions on Services Computing (STSC),
- Special Issues in Services Transactions on Big Data (STBD),
- Special Issues in Services Transactions on Cloud Computing (STCC),
- Special Issue in International Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR)(Indexed by SCI & EI),
- Special Issue in International Journal of Business Process Integration and Management (IJBPIM).

Services account for a major part of the IT industry today. Companies increasingly like to focus on their core expertise area and use IT services to address all their peripheral needs. Services Computing is a new science which aims to study and better understand the foundations of this highly popular industry. It covers the science and technology of leveraging computing and information technology to model, create, operate, and manage business services. Like its predecessors, SCC 2018 will contribute in building the pillars of this important science and shaping the future of Services Computing.

Services Computing currently shapes the thinking of business modeling, business consulting, solution creation, service delivery, and software architecture design, development and deployment. The global nature of Services Computing leads to many opportunities and challenges and creates a new networked economic structure for supporting different business models. SCC 2018 will help in bridging the gap between business services and information technology by driving research in technologies such as service-oriented architecture (SOA), business process integration and management, service engineering, cloud computing, and Web 2.0.

SCC 2018 is a member of Services Conference Federation (SCF). SCF 2018 will have the following 10 collocated service-oriented sister conferences: the 25th International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2018), the 11th International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2018), the 15th International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2018), the 7th International Congress on Big Data (BigData Congress 2018), the 7th International Conference on AI & Mobile Services (AIMS 2018), the 14th World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2018), the 3rd International Congress on Internet of Things (ICIOT 2018), the 2nd International conference on Cognitive Computing (ICCC 2018), the 2nd International Conference on Edge Computing (EDGE 2018), and the 1st International Conference on Blockchain (ICBC 2018).

The International Conference on Services Computing (SCC) covers the whole lifecycle of innovation research and enabling technologies, which includes enterprise modeling, business consulting, solution creation, services delivery, services orchestration, services optimization, services management, services marketing, services delivery and cloud computing, service-oriented architecture (SOA), business process integration and management, and Web services technologies and standards.

The technical program of SCC 2018 will include a research track, a application track, and a short paper track. The SCC 2018 will highlight foundational work that strives to push beyond the limits of existing business services platforms and products, including experimental efforts, innovative systems and investigations that identify weaknesses in the existing services computing technology.

The SCC 2018 seeks original, UNPUBLISHED research papers reporting substantive new work in various aspects of services innovation lifecycle management. Submissions MUST clearly indicate their contributions to the field of services computing and properly cite related work in the field, such as those published in the proceedings of BigData, ICWS, SCC, CLOUD, SERVICES, APSCC, ECOWS, and related journals including STSC, JWSR, and IJBPIM.

All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 program committee members. Accepted and presented papers from all SCC tracks will appear in the conference proceedings. Extended versions of selected papers will be invited for potential publication in the Services Transactions on Services Computing (STSC), International Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR), and International Journal of Business Process Integration and Management (IJBPIM). JWSR is indexed by SCI and EI [Link].

Submitted research and application track manuscripts will be limited to 8 (SCF Proceedings style) pages and REQUIRED to be formatted using the SCF Proceedings template in WORD or Latex Package. Unformatted papers and papers beyond the page limit will not be reviewed. Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF or Word format) is required. Detailed instructions for electronic paper preparation and submission, panel proposals, tutorial proposals, workshop proposals, and review process can be found at conference website.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to the conference and present the paper. One Best Paper award and one Best Student Paper award will be granted at SCC 2018. The first author of the best student paper must be a full-time student.
