July 2 - 7, 2018, San Francisco, USA

The IEEE World Congress on Services (IEEE SERVICES 2018), created and owned by IEEE since 2009, will be held on July 2-7, 2018 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in San Francisco, California, USA. The scope of the Congress will cover all aspects of innovative services computing and applications, current and emerging.

A number of IEEE sponsored conferences as part of the IEEE World Congress on Services (SERVICES) already existed before 2009, and became the co-located conferences when the Congress was formed in 2009. See the SERVICES History Page.

It involves various systems and networking aspects, such as cloud, edge, and Internet-of-Things (IoT), as well as other research and technologies, such as intelligent computing, learning techniques, and big data, including quality factors, such as high performance, security, privacy, dependability, trustworthiness, and cost-effectiveness.

The Congress with the following seven conferences/congresses is solely sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society under the auspice of the Technical Committee on Services Computing (TCSVC). Original manuscripts are invited to submit to these conferences/congresses considered with most suitable from the technical point of view.

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.
