Services 2018 Track 1: Virtual Track, Call for Papers:

Services 2018 continues the Services Virtual Track; the track accepts high quality research, applications and short papers that relate to SERVICES 2018 scope and its co- located events, CLOUD 2018, ICWS 2018, SCC 2018, BigData Congress 2018, AIMS, ICCC, ICIOT, EDGE 2018 and Services 2018 Special themes(see below).

The track is pragmatic gesture for our commitment to excellence, diversity and inclusiveness in support for services researchers and practitioners who have issues related to funding, travel and mobility, social, maternity/paternity, health, work, visa and other restrictions, which can hinder physical attendance and their contribution to the conference. Another objective of the track is to attract a bigger slice of practitioners and researchers from key services industries, software houses, governments through invited roadmaps, positions, demonstrations and virtual presentations etc. The track hopes to widen the scope for multidisciplinary dialogue, views and positions through invited virtual talks that can contribute to the repository of Services knowledge and improve our understanding to open issues in Services Computing.

Authors of the Virtual Tack are invited to submit full papers (about 8 pages) or short papers (about 4 pages) as per SCF 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines. All papers should be in PDF and submitted via at the submission system. Papers will be reviewed by three program committee members and will be selected depending on their originality, quality and relevance to the conference. Each accepted paper will have to be presented virtually; acceptance will be pending on preparing high quality and accessible electronic presentation that will be reviewed by the committee before confirming acceptance. Authors of accepted papers are strongly encouraged to use animation and effective techniques for virtual presentations. Accepted papers will be included in the Proceedings of the 2018 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2018). One of the authors needs to register to the conference (Discounted Virtual rate applies – 50% of the standard registration rate). We aim to arrange for a special thematic journal issue, featuring the best papers presented in the track.
