Under the umbrella of the IEEE 2015 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2015), MS 2015 will co-locate with the following service-oriented sister conferences: the 7th IEEE 2015 International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2015), the 11th IEEE 2015 International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2015), the 21th IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2015), and the IEEE International Congress on Big Data (BigData 2015). 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 2015 will include The HotTopics, 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The MS 2015 tracks seek original, UNPUBLISHED research papers reporting substantive new work in various aspects of delivering mobile services.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 IEEE. 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. TSC's Impact Factor in 2012 is 2.46.

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 2015. 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 2015 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.
