The Congress is solely sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society under the auspice of the Technical Committee on Services Computing (TCSVC). The scope of the Congress will cover all aspects of services computing and applications, current or emerging. Centered around services computing, it covers various systems and networking research pertaining to the cloud, edge, and Internet-of-Things (IoT) as well as technologies for intelligent computing, learning, big data, and blockchain applications, addressing critical issues such as knowledge network, high performance, security, privacy, dependability, trustworthiness, and cost-effectiveness. Particularly, 2021 Congress will welcome papers on the impact of COVID-19 on services and corresponding infrastructure. In addition to co-located theme-topic conferences, the Congress will also include symposia and workshops supporting deep-dive discussions on emerging important topics and complement the Congress program with industry and application presentations and panels. Authors are invited to submit original papers to any of these conferences via EasyChair. Every full paper submission can include up to 10 pages for the main contents (including all text, footnotes, figures, tables, and appendices) with additional pages for appropriate references. Up to three pages for one “Work-in-Progress” paper submission (including main contents and references). All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Accepted and presented papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Each of the affiliated conferences listed Below will give Best Paper, Best Student Paper, and a few Special Paper Awards.
