You are welcome to propose a panel. Electronic submission of 1-page proposal (in PDF or
Word formats) is required. Submissions should include panel title, abstract, name of panel
coordinator and panelists, their affiliations, emails addresses, and postal addresses.
You are welcome to propose a tutorial. Submitted tutorial proposal will be limited to 1 page
and required to be in a single column (see a Sample). Electronic submission of proposals (in
PDF or Word formats) is required. Submissions should include tutorial title, abstract, name
of authors, their affiliations, emails addresses, and postal addresses.
You are welcome to submit workshop proposals related to cloud computing, web services, mobile
services, and service economics. Workshop duration can be one day or one and half day. All the
accepted and presented papers by the workshops will be included in the Proceedings of 2013 IEEE
Eighth World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2013) which will be published by IEEE Computer
4. Services University (SU) Summer School:
SU-2013 is now calling for participation. Eligible applicants shall be (1) professors in universities
whose teaching and research areas are related to Cloud Computing, Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA),
Web services, Web technology, Software Engineering, IT, and management or (2) industry practitioners
who have experiences in services software design and development and are willing to get more involved
in Services Computing community.
5. PhD Symposium:
The Ph.D. Symposium is organized to bring together Ph.D. students and graduates working on topics
related to the various aspects of SERVICES 2013 conference topic areas. The goal of the symposium is
to offer Ph.D. students and graduates the opportunity to summarize, present, discuss, and receive
feedback on their research in a constructive manner. Papers submitted to the Ph.D. symposium must
summarize an ongoing or completed Ph.D. thesis.
6. Services Cup:
Services Cup 2013 will again bring together worldwide talented students (Students Group) and industry
practitioners (Professionals Group) for the industrial wave. The finalists and final top winners of
the contest will be announced in April 2013. In addition, the technical papers of the winners will
be published in the proceedings of 2013 IEEE World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2013).
7. Global Cloud Industry Summit:
This 6th Global Cloud industry summit is intended to bridge the gap between Cloud Computing and Business
models that are supported by them, with an emerging suite of ground-breaking technologies that includes
cloud computing, SOA, business process modeling, integration and management, grid/utility/autonomic
computing, enterprise service bus and Web 2.0. The relative placement of these emerging technologies,
standards and concepts need to be clarified for the pragmatic needs of the industry.
8. Innovation Show Case:
Exhibiting companies and research institutions will provide products, prototypes, First-Of-The-Kind demos,
and services offerings in all aspects of Services Computing. In addition, participating companies or
institutes will be able to give a product presentation in an exhibitor's track.
9. Job Fair:
All the services provided to job seekers and employers are FREE at this time point. Employers can also
order an exhibit space at the joint ICWS 2013, SCC 2013, CLOUD 2013, MS 2013, and BigData 2013 hosted at
Abstract Submission Deadline: March 1, 2013
Full Paper Submission Due Date: March 1, 2013
Decision Notification (Electronic): March 30, 2013
Camera-Ready Copy Due Date & Pre-registration Due: April 15, 2013
IEEE Policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the contents of papers under
review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others before publication. It is
expected that no one with access to a paper under review will make any inappropriate use of
the special knowledge, which that access provides. Contents of abstracts submitted to
conference program committees should be regarded as privileged as well, and handled in the
same manner. The Conference Publications Chair shall ensure that referees adhere to this
Organizers of IEEE conferences are expected to provide an appropriate forum for the oral
presentation and discussion of all accepted papers. An author, in offering a paper for
presentation at an IEEE conference, or accepting an invitation to present a paper, is
expected to be present at the meeting to deliver the paper. In the event that circumstances
unknown at the time of submission of a paper preclude its presentation by an author, the
program chair should be informed on time, and appropriate substitute arrangements should be
made. In some cases it may help reduce no-shows for the Conference to require advance
registration together with the submission of the final manuscript.
IEEE is the world?s largest professional association advancing innovation and technological
excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its members inspire a global community to
innovate for a better tomorrow through its highly cited publications, conferences, technology
standards, and professional and educational activities. IEEE is the trusted ?voice? for
engineering, computing and technology information around the globe.
About IEEE Computer Society
With nearly 85,000 members, the IEEE Computer Society (CS) is the world?s leading organization
of computing professionals. Founded in 1946, and the largest of the 38 societies of the
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the CS is dedicated to advancing
the theory and application of computer and information-processing technology.
About the Technical Committee on Services Computing
Founded in 2003, IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Services Computing (TC-SVC)
is a multidisciplinary group whose purpose is to advance and coordinate work in the field of
Services Computing carried out throughout the IEEE in scientific, engineering, standard,
literary and educational areas.
Services Computing has become a cross-discipline that covers the science and technology of
bridging the gap between Business Services and IT Services. The underneath breaking technology
suite includes Web services and service-oriented architecture (SOA), cloud computing, business
consulting methodology and utilities, business process modeling, transformation and integration.
This scope of Services Computing covers the whole lifecycle of services innovation research
that includes business componentization, services modeling, services creation, services
realization, services annotation, services deployment, services discovery, services composition,
services delivery, service-to-service collaboration, services monitoring, services optimization,
as well as services management. The goal of Services Computing is to enable IT services and
computing technology to perform business services more efficiently and effectively.
