About ICWS 2013
The IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS) has been a prime international forum for both researchers and industry practitioners to exchange the latest fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice of Web-based services, identify emerging research topics, and define the future of Web-based services. All topics regarding Web-based services lifecycle study and management align with the theme of ICWS. In 2013, we will celebrate our 20th version of gathering, to strive to advance the largest international professional forum on Web-based services.
The IEEE 2013 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2013) is the biggest international forum that explores the science and technology of Services Computing, which was formally promoted by IEEE Computer Society since 2003. Under the umbrella of SERVICES 2013, ICWS 2013 will co-locate with the following service-oriented sister conferences: the 6th IEEE 2013 International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2013), the 10th IEEE 2013 International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2013), the 2nd IEEE International Conference on Mobile Services (MS 2013), and the International Congress on Big Data(BigData Congress 2013). The five co-located theme topic conferences will all center around "services," while each focusing on exploring different themes (web-based services, cloud-based services, services innovation lifecycle, mobile services, and Big Data-based services).
From technology foundation perspective,
Services Computing has become the default discipline in the modern
services industry. As a major implementation technology for
modernizing services industry, Web services are Internet-based
programmable application components published using standard
interface description languages and universally available via
uniform communication protocols. In its 20th version, the program
of ICWS 2013 will continue to feature research papers with a wide
range of topics, focusing on various aspects of web-based services.
Some of the topics include Web services specifications and
enhancements, Web services discovery and integration, Web services
QoS (e.g., security, performance, reliability, fault tolerance,
etc.), Web services standards and formalizations, Web services
modeling, Web services engineering, Web services testing, Web
services-based applications and solutions, Web services
realizations, semantics in Web services, Web services supporting
Cloud Computing, Web services lifecycle management, and all
aspects of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) infrastructure and
middleware. 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. ICWS Proceedings are EI indexed.

IEEE World Congress on Services
Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Services Computing (TC-SVC), 2013 IEEE World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2013) aims to serve as a federation to host the following theme topic conferences to explore the deep knowledge space of Services Computing in various directions.
The 2013 IEEE 6th International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2013) is the flagship theme-topic conference for modeling, developing, publishing, monitoring, managing, delivering XaaS (everything as a service) in the context of various types of cloud environments.
The 2013 IEEE 20th International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2013) is the flagship theme-topic conference for Web-based services, featuring Web services modeling, development, publishing, discovery, composition, testing, adaptation, and delivery, and Web services technologies as well as standards.
The 2013 IEEE 10th International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2013) is the flagship theme-topic conference for services innovation lifecycle that includes enterprise modeling, business consulting, solution creation, services orchestration, services optimization, services management, services marketing, business process integration and management.
The 2013 IEEE 2nd International Conference on Mobile Services (MS 2013) is the emerging theme-topic conference for the development, publication, discovery, orchestration, invocation, testing, delivery, and certification of mobile applications and services.
SERVICES 2013 will also co-locate with The 2013 International Congress on Big Data (BigData Congress 2013), which is the emerging theme-topic conference for quantitative analysis of impact on business insights from Big Data analytics.
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.
