Call For Papers

MS 2013 Call for Papers
Sponsored by the Technical Committee on Services Computing (TC-SVC), IEEE Computer Society
The 2nd IEEE International Conference on Mobile Services (MS 2013)
MS 2013 organizing committee invites you to participate in the 2nd edition of MS, to be held on June 27-July 2, 2013 in Silicon Valley, California, USA.

Wireless and ubiquitous connectivity have enabled mobile computing and Internet access on the go as a life-enhancing and indispensable experience of modern life. Mobile networks has become a new services consumption and delivery platform for many industries and government organizations worldwide. The 2013 IEEE International Conference on Mobile Services (MS) aims at providing an international forum that is dedicated to explore different aspects of mobile services, from business, management to computing systems, algorithms, and applications and to promote technological innovations in research and development of mobile services, including, but not limited to, wireless networks, sensor networks, mobile computing, mobile enterprise, mobile eCommerce, collaborative computing and social networks. As an integral part of the Federated Conferences in Service Computing, sponsored by IEEE Computer Society since 2003, research papers accepted by IEEE MS 2013 will be presented to a broader audience at the federated conferences in service computing.
Under the umbrella of the IEEE 2013 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2013), MS 2013 will co-locate with the following service-oriented sister conferences: the 6th IEEE 2013 International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2013), the 10th IEEE 2013 International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2013), the 20th IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2013), and the 2nd IEEE International Conference on Big Data (BigData 2013). The five co-located theme topic conferences will all center around "services," while each focusing on exploring different aspects (web-based services, cloud-based services, services innovation lifecycle, mobile services, and Big Data-based services).
The technical program of MS 2013 will include a research track, an application and industry track, and a work-in-progress track. The research track will highlight foundational work that strives to push beyond the limits of existing mobile services platforms and products, including experimental efforts, innovative systems and investigations that identify weaknesses in the existing mobile services models.
The MS 2013 tracks seek original, UNPUBLISHED research papers reporting substantive new work in various aspects of delivering mobile services. Track papers MUST clearly indicate their contributions to the field and properly cite related work in the field, such as those published in the proceedings of ICWS, SCC, CLOUD, SE, SERVICES, APSCC, ECOWS, and related journals including TSC, JWSR, and IJBPIM.
All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 program committee members. Accepted and presented papers from all MS tracks will appear in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Extended versions of selected research track papers will be invited for potential publication in the IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC), International Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR), and International Journal of Business Process Integration and Management (IJBPIM). Both TSC and JWSR are indexed by SCI and EI [Link]. According to Thomson Scientific, JWSR is listed in the 2008 Journal Citation Report with an Impact Factor of 1.200. The journal ranks #47 of 99 in the Computer Science, Information Systems and ranks #37 of 86 in Computer Science, Software Engineering.
Submitted research and applications and industry track manuscripts will be limited to 8 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages and REQUIRED to be formatted using the IEEE Proceedings template. Submitted Work-in-Progress track manuscripts will be limited to 2 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages. 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 site.
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 MS 2013. The first author of the best student paper must be a full-time student.
If your paper is application or solution oriented, you can consider submitting it to MS 2013 Industry Track. Manuscripts submitted to the Research Track focusing on application or solution descriptions may be recommended to the Applications and Industry Track for further consideration if the session slots are available.

Review Policy

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 practice.

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.
