ICWS 2018 Call for Papers

The 25th International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2018, http://www.icws.org/2018)

Theme: Internet/Web Based Services

ICWS 2018 has obtained approval from the following journals to organize special issues based on extended versions of top ICWS papers:

-Special Issue in IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC) (Impact Factor: 3.52; Indexed by SCI & EI),
-Special Issues in Services Transactions on Services Computing (STSC),
-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.

ICWS 2018 program committee invites you to participate in the 25th edition of ICWS, to be held on June 25 - June 30, 2018, Seattle, USA

The 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. Internet/Web-based services are not limited to Web services. In 2018, we will strive to advance the largest international professional forum on Internet/Web-based services. The Proceedings of ICWS is EI indexed.

ICWS 2018 will co-locate with the following service-oriented sister conferences: the 11th International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2018), the 15th International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2018), the 7th International Congress on Big Data (BigData Congress 2018), the 7th International Conference on AI & Mobile Services (AIMS 2018), and the 14th World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2018). The 6 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, AI-driven ubiquitous services, and industry-specific services as well as emerging service-oriented technologies).

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 23th version, the program of ICWS 2018 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 2018 will include a Research Track, an Application Track, and a Short Paper Track. The ICWS 2018 tracks seeks original, UNPUBLISHED research papers reporting substantive new work in various aspects of Internet/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, AIMS, BigData Congress, SERVICES, APSCC, ECOWS, and related journals including TSC, JWSR, IJSC, and IJBPIM (see Literature Recommendations page).

All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 program committee members. Accepted and presented papers from all ICWS tracks will appear in the conference proceedings.

Submitted Research Track and Application Track manuscripts will be limited to 8 (SCF Proceedings style) pages and REQUIRED to be formatted using the SCF Proceedings template. Submitted Short Paper track manuscripts will be limited to 4 (SCF Proceedings style) pages. Unformatted papers and papers beyond the page limit may 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 http://icws.org/2018/.

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 ICWS 2018. The first author of the best student paper must be a full-time student.

Review Policy

SCF 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 SCF 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 a SCF 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.
