Dr. Ephraim Feig is the recent Associate CIO of Vision and Strategy at the Social Security Administration. Previously, he was Senior Director for Services Architectures at Motorola (2006-2008), Chief Technology Officer and Chief Marketing Officer at Kintera (2000-2006), and a researcher and R&D manager at IBM (1980-2000). He was elected IEEE Fellow for contributions to signal processing, holds 31 US patents, and has published more than 100 technical articles. Dr. Feig was an adjunct professor at several universities, including Columbia University, The City College of New York, and New York Polytechnic Institute. He is a founding member of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Services Computing and this year's General Chair of IEEE SCC. He has served on advisory boards at CUNY, UCSD, USD, and IBM, and was on the Board of Directors of the San Diego Symphony Orchestra.
Dr. Feig has been a member of the Technical Community for Services Computing since its inception in 2003. He currently serves as the Associate Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC). He has also served in previous years as chairs of IEEE International Conference on Web Services and IEEE International Conference on Services Computing.
The Technical Committee on Services Computing (TC-SVC) is a multi-disciplinary community within the IEEE Computer Society, whose purpose is to advance and coordinate work in the field of Services Computing carried out in scientific, engineering, standards, literary and educational areas. It coordinates and sponsors the ICWS, SCC, CLOUD, SERVICES, CLASS, APSCC, and ECOWS conferences. TC-SVC aims to build an integrated community through collaboration and coordination among various voluntary efforts such as conferences, journal publications, curriculum, and a Body of Knowledge.
If elected, I will strive to promote the integrated community initiative, moving it forward, building on earlier successes. I will also preserve our key conferences as venues for our community members to publish best research results and industry practices. I will continue to work with the active volunteers to make our community open and collaborative, to encourage existing members to contribute, and to attract new members to join the community. Finally, I would like to promote “Services Computing as a Science” by working with all of you to build the theoretical foundations in the field.
