IEEE ICCC 2018 - Call for Papers

ICCC 2018 Call for Papers

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

Cognitive Computing is an emerging technical field that combines computing and cognitive science to develop computational approaches, algorithms, and systems that operate effectively like human partners in real-world settings. Service Computing incorporates science, technology, and business for transforming goods into services and for modernizing traditional services into digital services ecosystems, focusing on the application of computing technologies to create value from interactions among multiple stakeholders in real-world settings. Focusing on complex sensing-centered service systems, the IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Computing (ICCC 2018) aims to combine cognitive science with service computing by combining the technical aspects of human-like computing with the business aspects of value-creation through service innovation lifecycle.

IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Computing (ICCC 2018), part of the Services Conference Federation (SCF 2018), combines technical aspects of cognitive computing with service computing, focusing on all of cognition, computation, and business to understand and engineer effective value-creation. in more detail, ICCC aims to cover all acts or processes of knowing, perceiving, judging, reasoning, and associating based on computing platforms and algorithms. In short, ICCC calls the entire services computing community to work toward realizing “Sensing Intelligence as a Service”.

IEEE Policy

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 practice.

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.

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.
