Call For Papers

The 10th IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2013)

June 27-July 2, 2013, Santa Clara Marriott, CA, USA (Center of Silicon Valley)

Sponsored by the Technical Committee on Services Computing (TC-SVC),
IEEE Computer Society

Services account for a major part of the IT industry today. Companies increasingly
like to focus on their core expertise area and use IT services to address all their
peripheral needs. Services Computing is a new science which aims to study and better
understand the foundations of this highly popular industry. It covers the science
and technology of leveraging computing and information technology to model, create,
operate, and manage business services. Like its predecessors, SCC 2013 will contribute
in building the pillars of this important science and shaping the future of Services

Services Computing currently shapes the thinking of business modeling, business
consulting, solution creation, service delivery, and software architecture design,
development and deployment. The global nature of Services Computing leads to many
opportunities and challenges and creates a new networked economic structure for
supporting different business models. SCC 2013 will help in bridging the gap between
business services and information technology by driving research in technologies such
as service-oriented architecture (SOA), business process integration and management,
service engineering and grid and cloud computing and Web 2.0.

The International Conference on Services Computing (SCC) covers the whole lifecycle of
innovation research and enabling technologies, which includes enterprise modeling,
business consulting, solution creation, services delivery, services orchestration,
services optimization, services management, services marketing, services delivery and
cloud computing, service-oriented architecture (SOA), business process integration and
management, and Web services technologies and standards.

Please use the SCC 2013 Conference Management System for Research Track to submit your
papers to SCC 2013 Research Track. Please check the Submission section for more submission
details for all tracks.

The technical program of SCC 2013 will include a research track, an application and experience
track, an industry track, and a work-in-progress track. The research track will highlight
foundational work that strives to push beyond the limits of existing business services
platforms and products, including experimental efforts, innovative systems and investigations
that identify weaknesses in the existing services computing technology.

The SCC 2013 research tracks seeks original, UNPUBLISHED research papers reporting substantive
new work in various aspects of services innovation lifecycle management. Research track papers
MUST clearly indicate their contributions to the field of services computing and properly cite
related work in the field, such as those published in the proceedings of ICWS, SCC, CLOUD,
SERVICES, APSCC, ECOWS, and related journals including TSC, JWSR, and IJBPIM.

All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 program committee members.
Accepted and presented papers from all SCC tracks will appear in the conference proceedings
published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Extended versions of selected research track
papers will be invited for potential publication in the IEEE Transactions on Services
Computing (TSC), International Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR), and International
Journal of Business Process Integration and Management (IJBPIM). Both TSC and JWSR are
indexed by SCI and EI [Link]. According to Thomson Scientific, JWSR is listed in the 2008
Journal Citation Report with an Impact Factor of 1.200. The journal ranks #47 of 99 in the
Computer Science, Information Systems and ranks #37 of 86 in Computer Science, Software
Engineering. SCC Proceedings are EI indexed.

Submitted research & industry track manuscripts will be limited to 8 (IEEE Proceedings style)
pages and REQUIRED to be formatted using the IEEE Proceedings template. Unformatted papers
and papers beyond the page limit will not be reviewed. Electronic submission of manuscripts
(in PDF or Word format) is required. Detailed instructions for electronic paper preparation
and submission, panel proposals, tutorial proposals, workshop proposals, and review process
can be found at conference website.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to the conference and
present the paper. One Best Paper award and one Best Student Paper award will be granted at
SCC 2013. The first author of the best student paper must be a full-time student.

If your paper is application or solution oriented, you can consider submitting it to SCC 2013
Industry Track. Manuscripts submitted to the Research Track focusing on application or
solution descriptions may be recommended to the Application and Experience Track, or Industry
Track for further consideration if the session slots are available.

Review Policy

IEEE Policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the contents of papers under
review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others before publication. It is
expected that no one with access to a paper under review will make any inappropriate use of
the special knowledge, which that access provides. Contents of abstracts submitted to
conference program committees should be regarded as privileged as well, and handled in the
same manner. The Conference Publications Chair shall ensure that referees adhere to this

Organizers of IEEE conferences are expected to provide an appropriate forum for the oral
presentation and discussion of all accepted papers. An author, in offering a paper for
presentation at an IEEE conference, or accepting an invitation to present a paper, is
expected to be present at the meeting to deliver the paper. In the event that circumstances
unknown at the time of submission of a paper preclude its presentation by an author, the
program chair should be informed on time, and appropriate substitute arrangements should be
made. In some cases it may help reduce no-shows for the Conference to require advance
registration together with the submission of the final manuscript.
