Call For Papers

SCC 2016 Call for Papers

Sponsored by the Technical Committee on Services Computing (TC-SVC), IEEE Computer Society
The 13th IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2016)

SCC 2016 program committee invites you to contribute to the eleventh edition of SCC, to be held on June 27 - July 2, 2016 in San Francisco, USA.
GREAT NEWS: In 2016, Services Computing community will work with IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC) to advertise a new Conference-to-Journal (C2J) publication model in the Services Computing community. In short, PC Chairs of the top services computing conferences will recommend top papers to TSC for direct journal publication in 2 special issues. Authors of the recommended top conference papers should follow the same rules as regular conference authors with respect to the conferences. The only difference is the publication venue: TSC conference special issue or conference proceedings. There is no additional work required for authors. Recommended top papers will appear as TSC special issue articles, 8 pages per paper, as it is accepted by the conference.
SCC 2016 has obtained approval from the following journals to organize special issues based on extended versions of top SCC papers:
-Special Issue in IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC) (Impact Factor: 3.049; Indexed by SCI & EI),
-Special Issues in International Journal of Services Computing (IJSC),
-Special Issues in International Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR)(Indexed by SCI & EI),
-Special Issues in International Journal of Business Process Integration and Management (IJBPIM).
Selected accepted papers will be invited to submit extended versions to special issues of TSC, IJSC, JWSR, and IJBPIM.
Services account for a major part of the IT industry today. Companies increasingly like to focus on their core expertise area and use IT services to address all their peripheral needs. Services Computing is a new science which aims to study and better understand the foundations of this highly popular industry. It covers the science and technology of leveraging computing and information technology to model, create, operate, and manage business services. Like its predecessors, SCC 2016 will contribute in building the pillars of this important science and shaping the future of Services Computing.
Services Computing currently shapes the thinking of business modeling, business consulting, solution creation, service delivery, and software architecture design, development and deployment. The global nature of Services Computing leads to many opportunities and challenges and creates a new networked economic structure for supporting different business models. SCC 2016 will help in bridging the gap between business services and information technology by driving research in technologies such as service-oriented architecture (SOA), business process integration and management, service engineering, cloud computing, and Web 2.0.
The International Conference on Services Computing (SCC) covers the whole lifecycle of innovation research and enabling technologies, which includes enterprise modeling, business consulting, solution creation, services delivery, services orchestration, services optimization, services management, services marketing, services delivery and cloud computing, service-oriented architecture (SOA), business process integration and management, and Web services technologies and standards.

The technical program of SCC 2016 will include a research track, a application track, and a short paper track. The SCC 2016 will highlight foundational work that strives to push beyond the limits of existing business services platforms and products, including experimental efforts, innovative systems and investigations that identify weaknesses in the existing services computing technology.
The SCC 2016 seeks original, UNPUBLISHED research papers reporting substantive new work in various aspects of services innovation lifecycle management. Submissions MUST clearly indicate their contributions to the field of services computing and properly cite related work in the field, such as those published in the proceedings of BigData, ICWS, SCC, CLOUD, 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 SCC 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]. SCC Proceedings are EI indexed. The TSC's impact factor in 2014 is 3.049.
Submitted research and application track manuscripts will be limited to 8 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages and REQUIRED to be formatted using the IEEE Proceedings template in WORD or Latex Package. 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 website.
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 SCC 2016. The first author of the best student paper must be a full-time student.

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.
