CALL FOR PAPERS:
The 2021 IEEE World Congress on Services will be held as an all-online virtual event. The Congress is solely sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society under the auspice of the Technical Committee on Services Computing (TCSVC).
The scope of the Congress will cover all aspects of services computing and applications, current or emerging. Centered around services computing, it covers various systems and networking research pertaining to cloud, edge and Internet-of-Things (IoT), as well as technologies for intelligent computing, learning, Big Data and blockchain applications, addressing critical issues such as knowledge network, high performance, security, privacy, dependability, trustworthiness, and cost-effectiveness. Particularly, 2021 Congress will welcome papers on the impact of COVID-19 on services and corresponding infrastructure. In addition to co-located theme-topic conferences, the Congress will also include symposia and workshops supporting deep-dive discussions on emerging important topics, and complement the Congress program with industry and application presentations and panels. Authors are invited to prepare early and submit original papers to any of these conferences at www.easychair.org. All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Accepted and presented papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.
The Congress will be organized into the following affiliated conferences:
- CLOUD: IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing: The flagship theme-topic conference for modeling, developing, publishing, monitoring, managing, delivering Everything-as-a-Service (XaaS) in the context of various types of cloud environments.
- ICWS: IEEE International Conference on Web Services: The flagship theme-topic conference for Web-based services, featuring services modeling, development, publishing, discovery, recommendation, composition, testing, adaptation, and delivery, and Web services applications and standards.
- SCC: IEEE International Conference on Services Computing: The flagship theme-topic conference for services lifecycle, including enterprise and vertical services modeling, microservices-based solutions, services optimization, services marketing, and business process and scientific workflow management.
- SMDS: IEEE International Conference on Smart Data Services: The flagship theme-topic conference for data-driven applications and solutions under the as-a-service model, including analytic services, smart data foundation, Big Data services, Blockchain, and data-intensive computing at the edge and in IoT systems.
- DHAASS: Symposium on Digital Health as a Service: Represents an emerging and critical direction for SERVICES toward digital transformation in health and social care, including health/medical microservices and integration, crowd sensing/sourcing, and health service economics.
MANUSCRIPT GUIDELINES AND SUBMISSION INFORMATION
Paper size and format: US Letter; Two-column format in the IEEE style
- Every full paper submission can include up to 10 pages for the main text (including all text, footnotes, figures, tables and appendices) with additional pages for appropriate references.
- Up to three pages for “Work-in-Progress” paper submission (including main text and references).
- Please note that the above page limit will be applied without exception. Papers violating the page limit will regretfully be desk rejected.
Abstract Length: 1500 characters for a regular paper, and 500 characters for “work in progress” papers
Number of Keywords: between five to eight keywords for each paper
File format: Limit the size of a single PDF file to be 6MB
Anonymous Submissions: All conferences under IEEE SERVICES implement a double-blind reviewing process. Author names and affiliations should not appear in the paper. The authors should make a reasonable effort not to reveal their identities of institutional affiliations in the text, figures, photos, links, or other data that is contained in the paper. Authors’ prior work should be preferably referred to in the third person; if this is not feasible, the references should be blinded. Submissions that violate these requirements will be rejected without review. The list of authors cannot be changed after the acceptance decision is made unless approved by the Program Chairs.
All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Accepted papers with confirmed registration and committed presentation will appear in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Each conference@congress will publically announce the winners of its Best Paper Award, and Best Student Paper Award. The authors of selected papers will be encouraged to submit extended and enhanced versions of their papers to the IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC) and other suitable journals.
Submitted Regular and Workshop Papers will be limited to 8 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages and REQUIRED to be formatted using the IEEE Proceedings template. Submitted Work-In-Progress Papers will be limited to 3 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages. Unformatted papers and papers beyond the page limit will not be reviewed.
