Detailed instructions for electronic paper preparation and submission can be found at


The CIS event is focused on industry practitioners who work on real-world systems, applying the SOA principles, standards, Cloud-based technologies, tools, protocols, solutions or management. In addition to best practices or, in the case of an emerging discipline, adequate practices that have proven successful are needed. In addition warning examples of how not to apply projects are also welcome because they provide a venue and context for avoiding common pitfalls in the combination of SOA resources that are often confusing to practitioners in the field. Experience reports are expected to provide and describe new insights gained in the context of case studies or the application of SOA in practice.

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered in another forum.
Please note that the same paper should NOT be submitted to ICWS 2014, SCC 2014, CLOUD 2014, MS 2014, BigData 2014, and other tracks of SERVICES 2014 simultaneously. Such duplicate submissions will be rejected from all conferences
without review.

Submitted manuscripts will be limited to 2 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages and required to be formatted using the IEEE Proceedings template ( Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF or Word format) is required.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to the conference and present the paper.

Only the accepted and presented papers will appear in the CD-ROM version and online version of the proceedings of the IEEE 2014 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2014), which will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.

These papers will be evaluated on their relevance and significance to industry and the clarity of expression.
All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, which will be included in the IEEE digital library
and Engineering Index (EI) database.

Theme and Topics:

Cloud Computing has become a scalable services consumption and delivery platform in the field of Services Computing.
The technical foundations of Cloud Computing include Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Virtualizations of hardware and software. The goal of Cloud Computing is to share resources among the cloud service consumers, cloud partners, and cloud vendors in the cloud value chain. The resource sharing at various levels results in various cloud offerings such as infrastructure cloud (e.g. hardware, IT infrastructure management), software cloud (e.g. SaaS focusing on middleware as a service, or traditional CRM as a service), application cloud (e.g. Application as a Service, UML modeling tools as a service, social network as a service),
and business cloud (e.g. business process as a service).

The technical topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
