Selected accepted papers will be invited to submit extended versions to special issues of TSC, IJSC, JWSR, and IJBPIM.

ICWS 2015 program committee invites you to participate in the 22nd edition of ICWS, to be held on June 27 - July 2, 2015, New York, USA

The IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS) has been a prime international forum for researchers, academics, businesses, industry, and standard bodies to exchange the latest fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice of Web-based services, identify emerging research topics, and define the future of Web-based services. Web-based services are not limited to Web services. Instead, all Web-based services-oriented software lifecycle management is included. In 2015, we will strive to advance the largest international professional forum on Web-based services. The Proceedings of ICWS is SCI & EI indexed.

ICWS is under the umbrella of IEEE 2015 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2015) that is the biggest international forum, formally promoted by IEEE Computer Society since 2003, to explore the science and technology of Services Computing. ICWS 2015 will co-locate with the following service-oriented sister conferences: the 8th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2015), the 12th IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2015), the 4th International Congress on Big Data (BigData Congress 2015), and the 4th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Services (MS 2015). The five co-located theme topic conferences will all center around "services," while each focusing on exploring different themes (web-based services, cloud-based services, Big Data-based services, services innovation lifecycle, and mobile services).

From technology foundation perspective, Services Computing has become the default discipline in the modern services industry. As a major implementation technology for modernizing services industry, Web services are Internet-based programmable application components published using standard interface description languages and universally available via uniform communication protocols. In its 21th version, the program of ICWS 2015 will continue to feature research papers with a wide range of topics, focusing on various aspects of Web-based services. Some of the topics include Web services specifications and enhancements, Web services discovery and integration, Web services QoS (e.g., security, performance, reliability, fault tolerance, etc.), Web services standards and formalizations, Web services modeling, Web services engineering, Web services testing, Web services-based applications and solutions, Web services realizations, semantics in Web services, Web services supporting Cloud Computing, Web services lifecycle management, and all aspects of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) infrastructure and middleware.

The technical program of ICWS 2015 will include a Research Track, an Application Track, and a Short Paper Track. The ICWS 2015 tracks seeks original, UNPUBLISHED research papers reporting substantive new work in various aspects of Web-based services. Research Track papers MUST clearly indicate their contributions to the field of Web-based services. All papers MUST properly cite related work in the field, such as those published in the proceedings of ICWS, SCC, CLOUD, SERVICES, APSCC, ECOWS, and related journals including TSC, JWSR, IJSC, and IJBPIM (see Literature Recommendations page).

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.
