About IEEE ICCC 2018

IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Computing (ICCC) aims to cover all aspects of Sensing Intelligence (SI) as a Service (SIaaS). Cognitive Computing is a sensing-driven-computing (SDC) scheme that explores and integrates intelligence from all types of senses in various scenarios and solution contexts. It is well beyond traditional human being's senses, which has four major senses (sight, smell, hearing, and taste) located in specific parts of the body, as well as a sense of touch located all over a body.

From process perspective, the key sensing elements of intelligence as a service includes but not limited to producing, extracting, understanding, perceiving, responding, deciding, inferencing, correlating, propagating, billing, exchanging, trading, replicating, destroying, repairing intelligences in scientific and business applications.

There are some initial thoughts about cognitive computing. For example, as defined on wikipedia, "Cognitive computing (CC) describes technology platforms that, broadly speaking, are based on the scientific disciplines of Artificial Intelligence and Signal Processing. These platforms encompass machine learning, reasoning, natural language processing, speech and vision, human-computer interaction, dialog and narrative generation and more."

In Services Computing community, the scope of Cognitive computing is open to everyone. Just like human beings have a multitude of senses that include but not limited to sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch, temperature, kinesthetic sense, pain, balance, acceleration, and various internal stimuli (Blood), an enterprise or a computing system or Internet as a whole have much complicated types of senses that are used to generate intelligence and eventually drive a system or ecosystem to work in order.

From technology foundation perspective, Services Computing has become the default discipline in the modern services industry.

Extended versions of selected research track papers will be invited for special issues in the IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC). TSC is indexed by SCI and EI [Link]. TSC's Impact Factor in 2016 is 3.520. ICCC Proceedings is EI indexed.

About IEEE SERVICES 2018

IEEE ICCC 2018 is part of the IEEE 2018 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2018). Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Services Computing (TCSVC), IEEE SERVICES 2018 serves as a platform and umbrella for eight co-located conferences aiming to explore the deep knowledge space of Services Computing in various angles:

About IEEE and IEEE Computer Society

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.

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 (TCSVC) 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.
