About SCC 2018

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 2018 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 2018 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  Transactions on Services Computing (TSC)Services Transactions on Services Computing (STSC), 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 2016 is 3.52. SCC Proceedings are EI indexed.

SCC 2018 will co-locate with the following service-oriented sister conferences: the 25th International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2018), the 11th International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2018), the 7th International Congress on Big Data (BigData Congress 2018), the 7th International Conference on AI & Mobile Services (AIMS 2018), and the 2018 World Congress on Services(SERVICES 2018). 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).

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 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.
