About ICWS 2016

June 27 - July 2, 2016, San Francisco, USA

The 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 2016, we will celebrate our 23rd version of gathering, to strive to advance the largest international professional forum on Internet/Web based services.

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.

About the Services Society

The Services Society is a non-profit professional organization that has been created to promote worldwide research and technical collaboration in Services Computing among academia and industrial professionals. Its members are volunteers from industry and academia with common interests. The Services Society is registered in the USA as a "501(c) organization", which means that it is an American tax-exempt nonprofit organization. The Services Society collaborates with other professional organizations such as the IEEE to sponsor conferences and to promote an effective services curriculum in colleges and universities. The Services Society initiates and promotes a "Services University" program worldwide to bridge the gap between industrial needs and university instruction. It has created Services Society Young Scientist Forums (SSYSF) worldwide. The Services Society has provided professional services for more than 30,000 researchers, practitioners, professors, and students directly.
