 Algorithms and programming techniques for big data processing
 Big data persistence and preservation
 Big data quality and provenance control
 Management issues of social network big data
 Privacy preserving big data analytics
 Algorithms and systems for big data search
 Visualization analytics for big data

Application, Industry and Education Track

The Applications, Industry and Education Track papers should generally have results from (ideally) real world development, deployment, and experiences delivering solutions of serviceology whereas research track papers should generally have either theoretical results or early implementation/prototype demonstrations. Additionally, an Applications, Industry and Education track paper can be structured like an "experience report" paper where one important section is "Lessons learned" or general advices gained from the experience. Other appropriate sections are general background on the solutions, overview of the solutions, and directions for future innovation and improvements.

1. Applications and Industry Practice

Public Services: including services in public sectors, e.g. healthcare, government, education, transportation and logistics, traffic control, telecommunication, smart city, etc.

Private Services: including production services such as small business, distribution, retailing, etc; and life services such as service for social and cultural events, e-business services, social-network services, smart home services, etc.

Services in industrial sectors and manufacturing servitization

Other modern services applications

2. Education and Curricula Development
 Service science education and curricula design
 Methodology and practice of service science curricula design
 E-learning and MOOC course development on service science
 Practice and experience of teaching and learning of service science
 Professional requirement and development in modern service sectors
 Case study for service science education

Working-In-Progress (WIP) Track

The ICSS 2015 WIP track provides a forum for attendees to illustrate and discuss their latest services computing related plans, projects, and advances, even when implementation or deployment has not been fully completed. However, the work should be advanced enough as to allow attendees to appreciate its scope and significance. Submissions may target on any topic related to the conference, describing on-going work at your institution. The Work-in-Progress papers will be an important way of sharing what is happening in serviceology research and applications, so please feel free to submit your papers to ICSS 2015.

Publications (TBD)

Papers accepted by ICSS 2015 will be recommended to be published in the following international journals and proceedings:

(1) International Journal of Services Technology and Management (IJSTM) Special Issue on Services Design and Innovation.
(2) International Journal of Information Technology and Management (IJITM) Special Issue on Services Computing Technologies and Applications.
(3) International Journal of Internet Manufacturing and Services (IJIMS) Special Issue on Big Data and Big Services for Internet-based Enterprises.
(4) International Journal of Services Sciences (IJSSci) Special Issue on Fundamentals of Service Science and Serviceology.
(5) International Journal of Services Computing (IJSC) Special Issue on Cloud, Social, and Mobile Services.
(6) International Journal of Information Systems in the Service Sector (IJISSS) Special Issue on Empirical Approaches in Service Sectors.
(7) International Journal of Service Science, Management, Engineering and Technology (IJSSMET) Special Issue on Optimization and Planning Methods in Services.
(8) IEEE CPS Conference Proceedings. Accepted papers (except those papers that are recommended to above list of journals) will be included in the conference proceedings which will be published by IEEE CPS and will be included in IEEE Xplore and the IEEE Computer Society (CSDL) digital libraries. IEEE will arrange for indexing through IEE INSPEC, EI (Compendex), Thomson ISI, and other indexing services.

Submission Guidelines

High quality research papers and case studies are invited to be submitted through the following link: Each paper will be rigorously reviewed by three members of the program committee based on relevance to ICSS, significance, originality, technical soundness and clarity of presentation. All submissions must be original work and must not have been published elsewhere and must not be currently under consideration by any other conferences or journals. Submitting a paper means that, if the paper is accepted, at least one author will pay the registration fee and attend the conference to present the paper. ICSS 2015 enforces a "no show" policy and only papers that are presented by an author/co-author at the conference will be sent for inclusion in the IEEE digital libraries or journals.


ICSS 2015 will offer one Best Paper award and one Best Student Paper award. The best papers are selected from the accepted papers of the research track.
