Manuscript Guidelines and Submission Information

Please download the paper template in WORD, LaTeX or Overleaf.

Language: English
Paper size and format: US Letter; Two-column format in the IEEE style
Page limits:

  • Every "Regular paper" submission can include up to 10 pages (including main contents and references). Option to purchase up to 2 more pages will be available at camera ready registration (total of 12 pages max).
  • Every "Short paper" submission can include up to 6 pages (including main contents and references). Short papers present high-quality, original research that is of relevance to the services community. Submissions should present more focused or smaller studies, including preliminary but complete results.
  • Every “Work-in-Progress” paper can include up to 3 pages (including main contents and references). WIP papers present high-innovative ideas favouring innovation and potential impact.
  • Please note that the above page limits will be applied without exception. Papers violating the page limit will regretfully be desk rejected.
Number of Keywords: between five to eight keywords for each paper
File format: Limit the size of a single PDF file to be 6MB

Anonymous Submissions: All conferences under IEEE SERVICES implement a double-blind reviewing process. Author names and affiliations should not appear in the paper. The authors should make a reasonable effort not to reveal their identities of institutional affiliations in the text, figures, photos, links, or other data that is contained in the paper. Authors' prior work should be preferably referred to in the third person; if this is not feasible, the references should be blinded. Submissions that violate these requirements will be rejected without review. The list of authors cannot be changed after the acceptance decision is made unless approved by the Program Chairs.

All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Accepted papers with confirmed registration and committed presentation will appear in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. TCSVC will provide a cash prize of USD 400.00 to every Best Paper and Best Student Paper at IEEE SERVICES 2022. Recipients of "Best Paper", "Best Student Paper", and special paper awards will be presented with award certificates and cash prizes in the to-be-recorded Awards session of the conference. The authors of selected papers will be encouraged to submit extended and enhanced versions of their papers to the IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC) and other suitable journals.

Submitted papers are REQUIRED to be formatted using the IEEE Proceedings template. Unformatted papers and papers beyond the page limit will not be reviewed.

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.
