Conference Objective

Knowledge based service innovation and growing demand in emerging markets are important propeller of global economy. The service sector has had an annual growth rate of 30% in developing economies such Brazil, China, India, and Russia in recent years. The remarkable growth of the service economy is driven not only by traditional service firms but also by manufacturing sectors. These developments highlight the needs of quality and innovative services for companies to succeed and prosper in the market. Increasing importance of being service-oriented has also proposed a wide range of research agenda in different disciplines. In light of this emerging trend, ICSS 20013 will be held in Shenzhen, China on April 11-13, 2013, which is hosted by the Graduate School at Shenzhen, Tsinghua University, with the sponsorship of IBM, Serviceology of China and Service Science Society. This event aims to bring together scholars, researchers and managers of various areas and industries for intellectual exchanges, research cooperation and professional development. This conference features eight different submission tracks inviting presentations of theoretical research findings and case reports. Moreover, this program also offers excellent networking opportunities to participants, with a wonderful taste of local culture.
