The services computing is a new cross-discipline that covers the science and technology 
needed to bridge the gap between business services and IT/telecommunication services. 
The goal of services computing is to develop new computing technology and thereby 
enable more advanced IT/telecommunication services to support business services more 
efficiently and effectively.

APSCC 2018 is an important forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange 
information regarding advancements in the state of art and practice of IT/telecommunication-driven 
business services and application services, as well as to identify emerging research topics and 
define the future directions of Services Computing.

Previous APSCC conferences were held in GuangZhou, China (2006), Tsukuba Science City, Japan (2007), 
Yilan, Taiwan China (2008), Biopolis, Singapore (2009), Hangzhou, China (2010), Jeju, Korea (2011), 
Guilin, China (2012), Fuzhou, China (2014), Bangkok, Thailand (2015), Zhangjiajie, China (2016) and 
Bali, Indonesia (2017). As the 12th event in the increasingly popular series, APSCC 2018 expects to 
attract outstanding researchers from all over the world to Zhuhai - one of the most beautiful cities in China.
