Dear Colleagues:

We cordially invite you to share your latest research results related to
big data analytics and intelligence at the IEEE SC2 2019 conference.

The 9th IEEE International Symposium on Cloud and Service Computing
Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Nov. 18-21, 2019

The 'Cloud' is a natural evolution of distributed computing and the
widespread adaption of virtualization and Service-Oriented Architecture
(SOA). Services computing is a new cross-discipline subject that covers the
science and technology needed to bridge the gap between business services
and IT services. In cloud computing, IT-related capabilities and resources
are provided as services, via the Internet and on-demand, accessible
without requiring detailed knowledge of the underlying technology.

SC2 2019 is an important forum for researchers and industry practitioners
to exchange information regarding advancements in the state of art and
practice of IT-driven cloud computing technologies and services, as well as
to identify emerging research topics and define the future directions of
cloud and services computing.

IEEE SC2 2019 welcomes paper submissions on innovative work from
researchers in academia industry and government describing original
research work in Big Data. Authors of selected papers will be invited to
submit an extended version (with at least 30% new material) for review and
publication in special issues of international journals.

IEEE SC2 2019 will be held on Nov. 18-21, 2019, co-located with IEEE
DataCom 2019, IEEE SOCA 2019 and IOV 2019, in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:

- Cloud architecture
- Cloud OS, middleware, and toolkits
- Fog / Edge computing
- Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies and Contracts

Authors are invited to submit their original research work that has not
previously been submitted or published in any other venue. Papers should be
prepared in IEEE CS format and submitted via The EasyChair system.

IEEE formatting information:

- Proposals for organizing tutorials, workshops and special sessions need
to be submitted to the Workshops Chair of the conference. A proposal should
include title, theme, scope and main presenters/organizers.

- Research paper (8 pages) should explore a specific technology problem and
propose a complete solution to it, with experimental results.

- Works-in-Progess (WIP) (6 pages) papers are expected to present either
work currently in progress or less developed but highly innovative ideas.

- Demo/Poster papers (4 pages) must describe working systems and be related
to SC2. These systems may be innovative prototype implementations or mature
systems that use related technology.  Papers/proposals need to be submitted
to the Demo/Poster Chair.

- Workshop and Special Session papers need to be submitted to the
corresponding workshops and special sessions Chairs.

All accepted papers in the main tracks, workshops, special sessions and
demos/posters will be published in an IEEE Computer Society proceedings.
Extended versions of selected excellent papers will be considered for
publication in special issues of prestige journals (SCI/EI indexed).
