For all 10 collocated conferences of SCF 2018, the content of this proceedings volume will be made freely accessible to anyone in the Springer’s digital library after four years upon publication.

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 for each conference at SCF 2018. The first author of the best student paper must be a full-time student. The Best Paper Awards will be sponsored by Springer, which is a leading global scientific, technical and medical portfolio, providing researchers in academia, scientific institutions and corporate R&D departments with quality content through innovative information, products and services.

Manuscripts submitted to the Research Track focusing on application or solution descriptions may be recommended to the Application Track or other tracks for further consideration if the session slots are available.

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.

About ICCC History

In 2016, the International Conference on Cognitive Computing (ICCC) was created by Services Society to provide a forum for exchanging research innovation in the field of cognitive computing. Then IEEE Computer Society co-sponsored the International Conference on Cognitive Computing (ICCC) in 2017. ICCC 2017 was held on June 25-30, 2017, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.

SCF As A Platform
-- 25th ICWS Defines Future of New ABC (AI, Blockchain & Cloud)

Founded by Dr. Liang-Jie Zhang (LJ) when he was with IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, the First International Conference on Web Services (ICWS, icws.org) was conceived and attracted more than 120 participants in June 2003 in Las Vegas, USA. In 2012, the European Conference on Web Services (ECOWS) was formally merged into ICWS. Ever since, the worldwide Services Computing community aims to combine the efforts and focus on one prime international forum for web-based services: ICWS .

In the past 15 years, ICWS community has been expanded from Web engineering innovations to scientific research (Services Computing) for the whole services industry.

The service delivery platforms have been expanded to mobile platforms, Internet of Things, cloud computing, and edge computing. The services ecosystem is gradually enabled, value added, and intelligence embedded through enabling technologies such as big data, artificial intelligence, and cognitive computing. In the coming years, all the transactions with multiple parties involved will be transformed to blockchain.

Based on the technology trends and best practices in the field, the Services Conference Federation (SCF) was created in 2017 as a conference umbrella's code name for all services-related conferences. SCF 2017 attracted more than 600 participants to share the latest developments in the field.

Today, with the same leadership of the conference operation committee of SCF 2017, we are very proud to announce that SCF 2018's 10 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, blockchain driven trust service-ecosystems, industry-specific services and applications, and emerging service-oriented technologies).


SCF 2018 Highlights:

- Bigger Platform: The he 10 collocated conferences (SCF 2018) get sponsorship from the Services Society which is the largest not-for-profits organization (501 c(3)) dedicated for serving more than 30,000 worldwide services computing professionals. Bigger platform means bigger opportunities to all volunteers. Meanwhile, Springer provides sponsorship to best paper awards and other professional activities. All the 10 conference proceedings will be published by Springer and indexed in ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index (included in Web of Science), Engineering Index EI (Compendex and Inspec databases), DBLP, Google Scholar, IO-Port, MathSciNet, Scopus, and ZBlMath.

- Brighter Future: SCF launches the First International Conference on Blockchain (ICBC 2018) to build the fundamental infrastructure for enabling secure and trusted services ecosystems. It will also lead our community members to create their own brighter future.

- Better Model: SCF 2018 leverages the invented Conference Blockchain Model (CBM) to innovate the organizing practices for all the 10 theme conferences. Senior researchers in the field are welcome to submit proposals to serve as CBM Ambassador for an individual conference to start better interactions during your leadership practices for organizing SCF 2018.

Look forward to your great contributions as a volunteer, author, and conference participant for the fast-growing worldwide services computing community. If you would like to contribute to SCF 2018 as a leading volunteer or try the new Conference Blockchain Model, please feel free to fill in the online form (http://icws.org/2018/open.html) to become a conference volunteer. For other queries or questions, please feel free to visit our conference web sites and find contact information on SCF 2018.

See you all on June 25 - June 30, 2018, Seattle, USA.
