Call For Papers
SCC 2018 program committee invites you to contribute to the fourteenth edition of SCC, to be held on June 25 - June 30, 2018 in Seattle, USA.

SCC 2018 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: 3.52; 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, STSC, 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 2018 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 2018 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.

All topics relevant to Internet services lifecycle are of interest. SCC 2018 will organize refereed paperreviews in 9 research areas:

The technical program of SCC 2018 will include a research track, a application track, and a short paper track. The SCC 2018 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 2018 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 2016 is 3.52.

Submitted research and application track manuscripts will be limited to 8 (SCF Proceedings style) pages and REQUIRED to be formatted using the SCF 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 2018. The first author of the best student paper must be a full-time student.
