Call For Papers
IEEE Transactions on Services Computing(TSC) is a scholarly archival journal published quarterly that will emphasize the algorithmic, mathematical, statistical and computational methods that are central in services computing; the emerging field of Service Oriented Architecture, Web Services, Business Process Integration, Solution Performance Management, Services Operations and Management. Specifically, this new title covers but not limited to the following topics:

    Mathematical foundation of Services Computing;
    Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA);
    Service creation, development, and management;
    Linkage between IT services and business services;
    Web services security and privacy;
    Web services agreement and contract;
    Web services discovery and negotiation;
    Web services management;
    Web services collaboration;
    Quality of Service for Web services;
    Web services modeling and performance management;
    Solution frameworks for building service-oriented applications;
    Composite Web service creation and enabling infrastructures;
    Business and scientific applications using Web services and SOA;
    Business process integration and management using Web Services;
    Standards and specifications of Services Computing;
    Utility Models and Solution Architectures;
    Resource acquisition models in Utility Computing;
    Mathematical foundation of business process modeling, integration and management;
    Business process modeling, integration, and collaboration.

It is noted that only Web service-oriented Grid computing will be covered by Services Computing. Services Computing does not cover most of the topics in traditional Grid computing areas (i.e. computing resource sharing and parallel computing). Please be sure to visit the new TSC Taxonomy list for additional information with the submission and review process.

Special Issues
Special Issue on COVID-19 and Future Pandemics
Submission Date: 2021-09-30

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the world to a historic turning point. While the pandemic is transforming our normal lives in unprecedented ways, the computing and information services ecosystems have provided much-needed support to the continuity of social interactions and organizational functions. As COVID-19 continues to expose the weaknesses of current services ecosystems, it inspires novel science-driven services and computing research aimed at delivering secure, privacy-aware, resilient, and Internet-scale services during pandemics. This TSC special track solicits impactful research manuscripts in the areas of services computing that will be of immediate value to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as well as for future pandemic and crisis situations. Both theoretical and applied/practical contributions are encouraged. The manuscripts are expected to: Address issues pertinent to the COVID-19 pandemic under the paradigm of services computing. Provide consumable artifacts (e.g., container images, API services, phone/web apps, etc.) and/or open datasets that make the reported research results reproducible and/or composable by others. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Pandemic-focused financial, healthcare, and public health services Secure and resilient high-performance platforms and services for pandemics Services for contact tracing and symptom management during pandemics Mobile crowdsourcing and services for pandemic data collection and analytics Human factors for accessible services during pandemics Scalable social media/networking services for mobile/home workers during pandemics Personal online learning services and/or service-oriented platforms during pandemics Microservices, DevOps, and API services fabrics for scalable/resilient pandemic apps/solutions Elastic and agile enterprise service composition platforms/paradigms for pandemic situations Privacy-aware, secure, and resilient services for crisis management during pandemics Trusted AI and machine learning based services for epidemiological prediction Services for infodemics and misinformation management IoT, edge, cloud, and blockchain microservices for pandemic applications/services/solutions Pandemic-driven next generation sensor and mobile service ecosystems, including 5G and beyond Submission Guidelines Manuscript submission is open and can be submitted until 30 September 2021. Submitted papers will be reviewed as they come. Our goal is to expedite the review process so as to include accepted papers in upcoming issues as soon as possible. Every submission must include a section justifying how its research contributions address unique open issues relevant to the COVID-19 pandemic and how they are aligned with the research scope of TSC. Please submit your manuscripts (12–14 pages each) through the TSC online system and select “Special track on COVID-19 and Future Pandemics.” Author guidelines are available here. Submitted manuscripts should not have been previously published, nor be currently under review for publication elsewhere. They should provide, at minimum, 30% original technical contributions in comparison to previous publications.
