All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by 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 publicly 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.
Special note in regard to early submissions: Authors are invited to consider early submissions and only full/regular papers will be accepted. An early submitted paper which is accepted will be included in the proceedings. An early submitted paper which is rejected can be still revised and submitted to the normal submission deadline (whereas the normal papers cannot be resubmitted). If the authors of an early submitted paper which is rejected decide to resubmit their paper to the normal deadline, they will have to include an appendix (2 pages) describing how they have addressed the comments received by the reviewers on the early submission.
Submitted Regular and Workshop Papers will be limited to 8 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages and REQUIRED to be formatted using the IEEE Proceedings template.
