Call For Papers


The Fourth IEEE International Workshop on
Service Science and Systems (SSS’11)

A joint event with COMPSAC’2011
The 35th Annual IEEE International Computer Software
and Applications Conference
Munich, Germany, July 18 - 22, 2011


Goal of the Workshop

Service sector forms a growing portion of world economy, accounting at the moment under 50% and around 70% of the total value adds in the developing and developed countries, respectively. Yet, this sector is still lagging behind other industry sectors, such as manufacturing, in terms of overall productivity. The advent of the Internet shortens the distance between service providers, service suppliers, service consumers which, coupled with the ever-increasing computing power, has become a key driver in brewing a new wave of business and technical models, promising to boost the productivity in the service sector.

A full End-to-End (E2E) service cycle covers stages of service creation, marketing, delivery and management. It is only recently that the importance of examining the scale, complexity and interdependence of service systems, in the lights of globalisation, demographic changes and technology developments, have been highlighted, calling for actions from education, research, business and government alike. A first symposium on “Service Science, Management and Engineering” and a first international conference on service science were held in Cambridge (2007) and Beijing (2008) respectively.

Service science is still in its infancy, existing main driving forces in this area are from traditional hardware and software vendors who, while possessing tremendous knowledge and experience in computing, are restricted in the width and depth of visions in service applications. This workshop intends to fill the gap; in particular, it examines key stakeholders in the service cycles and sees how modern technologies can help boost productivity of the stakeholders.

Following the successful running of BINDIS’08, BINDIS’09 and BINDIS’10 that were held in Turku, Seattle and Seoul, we now continue to run the fourth in a series in Munich, Germany, 2011. This year, we also change the workshop title, in response to growing interests from participants in the previous workshops.

The workshop will act as a unique forum to
• Review key stakeholders, activities in service cycles,
• Identify relevant modern technologies that can help promote service cycles,
• Examine novel service systems and applications in a variety of service industries.

Theme and Scope of the Workshop

The workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners to share research results, advances and practical experience related to service science and systems, with focus on tackling barriers towards maintainability, scalability, reliability, interoperability, comprehensibility, usability, controllability, sustainability, profitability and productivity in the service cycles. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Service creation
o SaaS, PaaS, IaaS
o Service repository and reuse
o Service oriented architecture, analysis and design
o Service conceptual modelling, composition and orchestration
• Service marketing
o Market detection and segmentation
o Demand forecasting and resource planning
o Service directory, semantics, pragmatics, markup and matchup
o Economic models for service market
• Service delivery and management
o Service-level agreement and optimisation
o Automated customer service
o Workflow and service chain management
o Green computing and facilities management
• Industrial service applications
o Hospitality, professional services, outsourcing, public services, etc.
o Consumers applications, enterprise applications
o Approximate algorithms for real-time applications
o Service standardization

Important Dates

March 1, 2011 Deadline for paper submission
April 8, 2011 Decision notification (electronic)
April 30, 2011 Camera-ready copy and author registration due

Submission and Review

Original papers will be considered. All submitted papers will be reviewed by the program committee according to its originality, significance, correctness, presentation, and relevance. We encourage authors to present position papers on practical studies and experiments, critiques of existing work, emerging issues, and novel ideas under development.

Both draft and camera-ready papers must be submitted electronically via the SSS 2011 Submission Page (TBA). Manuscripts will be limited to six pages for regular/invited paper, four pages for short paper, two pages for fast abstract and position statement including all figures, tables, and references. Extra page charges apply. Please consult COMPSAC Paper Submission page for proper naming convention. The format of submitted papers must follow the IEEE conference proceedings guidelines (i.e., 8.5" x 11", Two-Column Format (PDF, DOC); Layout Guide (PDF, DOC)).

All accepted papers will be published in the electronic conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society, indexed through INSPEC and EI Index (Elsevier's Engineering Information Index), and automatically included in the IEEE Digital Library. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a full participant of COMPSAC for the paper to be included in the proceedings. Each accepted paper must be presented in person by an author.
Authors of a selection of best papers from SSS 2011 will also be invited to submit extended versions of the papers to a special issue of a major international journal.
