Call For Papers


Call for Papers: QSW 2022



July 10-16, 2022 (Hybrid)

in Barcelona, Spain (Pending Travel and CDC Guidelines)



The 2022 IEEE World Congress on Services will be held in a hybrid mode with physical presence in Barcelona, Spain. The Congress is solely sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society under the auspice of the Technical Committee on Services Computing (TCSVC). The scope of the Congress will cover all aspects of services computing and applications, current or emerging. Centered around services computing, it covers various systems and networking research pertaining to cloud, edge and Internet-of-Things (IoT), as well as technologies for intelligent computing, learning, Big Data and blockchain applications, addressing critical issues such as knowledge network, high performance, security, privacy, dependability, trustworthiness, and cost-effectiveness. Particularly, 2022 Congress welcomes papers on the impact of COVID-19 on services and corresponding infrastructure. In addition to colocated theme-topic conferences, the Congress will also include symposia and workshops supporting deep-dive discussions on emerging important topics, and complement the Congress program with industry and application presentations and panels. Authors are invited to submit original papers to any of these conferences at All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Accepted and presented papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.

The IEEE International Conference on Quantum Software (QSW) is focusing on quantum software engineering, including hybrid quantum software, quantum software development, quantum in the cloud, quantum applications, and quantum software analysis & evolution. The goal of QSW is to bring together researchers and practitioners from different areas of quantum computing and (classical) software and service engineering to strengthen the quantum software community and discuss, e.g., architectural styles, languages, and best practices of quantum software as well as many other aspects of the quantum software development lifecycle.
