[April 24, 2020] Author/Speaker Information and Author Registration Information has been posted.

[March 21, 2020] The IEEE SERVICES Congress community is sorry to report the very sad news that our dear friend Professor Michael Goul, Steering Committee member and Congress Symposia General Chair, passed away on March 20, 2020 after a short battle with cancer. We have lost a great colleague to many, a dear friend to all of us, a fine scholar from the academia, and a key organizer for the IEEE World Congress on Services.

[March 5, 2020] The organizers of the 2020 IEEE World Congress on Services remain steadfast in advancing our discipline by continuing to engage an international community of scholars committed to the highest standards of research quality. Because of the unusual situation in China this year, the organizers opted to relax the onsite presentation policy while re-committing to high quality review processes consistent with the Congress’ excellent reputation. This decision balances our ongoing global engagement strategy with a practical remedy to deal with an unusual situation.

As of March 5, the Steering Committee has approved the final plan for the 2020 IEEE World Congress on Services. The Congress will be still held in Beijing, but the dates have been moved to October 19-23, 2020. The program committee for each conference will continue its operation for the current batch of submissions according to the current schedule:
Normal paper submission due: February 13 March 5, 2020 (5:00 am, UTC)
Final notification to authors: April 6 April 20, 2020
Camera ready manuscripts due: April 20 May 4, 2020
Congress dates: July 7-11 July 20-24, 2020October 19-23, 2020

Because the move created a 7-month gap before the Congress is actually held, the Steering Committee decided to accommodate authors with one more submission window as follows:
Normal paper submission re-opened for the final window: April 27, 2020
Normal paper submission for the final window due: June 5, 2020 (5:00 am UTC)
Final notification for the final window to authors: July 20, 2020 (for all papers submitted in the final window due June 5)
Camera ready manuscript due: August 7, 2020
Congress Date: October 19-23, 2020

Papers accepted within this final window will also be included in the same 2020 proceedings.
Due to this final move the Congress has issued a newly revised presentation policy for authors and presenters affected by the travel issues.
