Announcement: The 15th International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2018) will be held on June 25-30, 2018, Seattle, USA. [http://thescc.org/2018]

About IEEE SCC 2017

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 2017 will contribute in building the pillars of this important science and shaping the future of Services Computing.

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 2017 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, cloud computing and Web 2.0. Extended versions of selected research track papers will be invited for potential publication in the IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC)International Journal of Services Computing (IJSC), 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]The TSC's impact factor in 2014 is 3.049. SCC Proceedings are EI indexed.

SCC 2017 will co-locate with the following service-oriented sister conferences: the 24th IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2017), the 10th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2017), the 6th International Congress on Big Data (BigData Congress 2017), the 6th IEEE International Conference on AI & Mobile Services (AIMS 2017), and the IEEE 2017 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2017). All six co-located theme topic conferences will all center around "services," while each focusing on exploring different themes (web-based services, cloud-based services, Big Data-based services, services innovation lifecycle, mobile services, and industry-specific services and enabling technologies).

IEEE ICWS 2017, SCC2017, CLOUD 2017, SERVICES 2017, BigData Congress 2017, and AIMS 2017

The 6 co-located conferences are sponsored by IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Services Computing (TC-SVC) and Services Society.

About IEEE

IEEE is the world’s largest professional association advancing innovation and technological excellence for the benefit of humanity.  IEEE and its members inspire a global community to innovate for a better tomorrow through its highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities. IEEE is the trusted “voice” for engineering, computing and technology information around the globe.

About IEEE Computer Society

With nearly 85,000 members, the IEEE Computer Society (CS) is the world’s leading organization of computing professionals. Founded in 1946, and the largest of the 38 societies of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the CS is dedicated to advancing the theory and application of computer and information-processing technology.

About the Technical Committee on Services Computing

Founded in 2003, IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Services Computing (TC-SVC) is a multidisciplinary group whose purpose is to advance and coordinate work in the field of Services Computing carried out throughout the IEEE in scientific, engineering, standard, literary and educational areas. 
Services Computing has become a cross-discipline that covers the science and technology of bridging the gap between Business Services and IT Services. The underneath breaking technology suite includes Web services and service-oriented architecture (SOA), cloud computing, business consulting methodology and utilities, business process modeling, transformation and integration. This scope of Services Computing covers the whole lifecycle of services innovation research that includes business componentization, services modeling, services creation, services realization, services annotation, services deployment, services discovery, services composition, services delivery, service-to-service collaboration, services monitoring, services optimization, as well as services management. The goal of Services Computing is to enable IT services and computing technology to perform business services more efficiently and effectively.

About the Services Society

The Services Society is a non-profit professional organization that has been created to promote worldwide research and technical collaboration in Services Computing among academia and industrial professionals. Its members are volunteers from industry and academia with common interests. The Services Society is registered in the USA as a "501(c) organization", which means that it is an American tax-exempt nonprofit organization. The Services Society collaborates with other professional organizations such as the IEEE to sponsor conferences and to promote an effective services curriculum in colleges and universities. The Services Society initiates and promotes a "Services University" program worldwide to bridge the gap between industrial needs and university instruction. It has created Services Society Young Scientist Forums (SSYSF) worldwide. The Services Society has provided professional services for more than 30,000 researchers, practitioners, professors, and students directly.
