About SCC 2014
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 2014 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 2014 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 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 TSC's impact factor in 2012 is 2.46. The journal ranks #47 of 99 in the Computer Science, Information Systems and ranks #37 of 86 in Computer Science, Software Engineering. SCC Proceedings are EI indexed.
Under the umbrella of the IEEE 2014 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2014), SCC 2014 will co-locate with the following service-oriented sister conferences: the 7th IEEE 2014 International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2014), the 21th IEEE 2014 International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2014), the 3rd IEEE International Conference on Mobile Services (MS 2014), and the 3rd IEEE International Congress on Big Data (BigData 2014). The five co-located theme topic conferences will all center around "services," while each focusing on exploring different aspects (web-based services, cloud-based services, services innovation lifecycle, mobile services, and services economics).
IEEE World Congress on Services
Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Services Computing (TC-SVC), 2014 IEEE World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2014) aims to serve as a federation to host the following five theme topic conferences to explore the deep knowledge space of Services Computing in different directions:
- The 2014 IEEE 7th International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2014) is the flagship theme-topic conference formodeling, developing, publishing, monitoring, managing, delivering XaaS (everything as a service) in the context of various types of cloud environments.
- The 2014 IEEE 21st International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2014) 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 2014 IEEE 11th International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2014) 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 2014 IEEE 3rd International Conference on Mobile Services (MS 2014) is the emerging theme-topic conference for the development, publication, discovery, orchestration, invocation, testing, delivery, and certification of mobile applications and services.
- The 2014 IEEE 3rd International Congress on Big Data (BigData 2014) is the emerging theme-topic conference for economic and enterprise transformation aspects of the utility-oriented services paradigm.
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
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.
