2008 IEEE International Services Computing Contest (SCContest 2008) 

Call for Participation 

 

The objective of Services Computing Contest is to promote research and
teaching service computing techniques in universities and colleges
worldwide. This contest brings together talented students to solve
challenges in using Services Computing techniques to build value-added
business systems in the era of Web 2.0. Following the two successful
contests in 2006 and 2007, the 2008 IEEE International Services
Computing Contest has the theme of "Business SOA and Services Mash-up"
that the participating teams will utilize the services and data from
different sources and integrate them into a new value-added business
service to the end users. Each team will submit a paper and build a live
system. The finalists will be invited to either the SCC 2008 (Hawaii,
USA) or the ICWS 2008 (Beijing, China), at their will, for the final
competition. The reasons to organize the final competition in two
conferences are to encourage teams from different countries to
participate and to solve practical traveling issues. The contest is one
competition. The finalists will be announced in the SCC 2008 and the
winners will be announced in the ICWS 2008. The papers of the finalists
will be published in the proceedings of the 2008 IEEE Congress on
Services (SERVICES 2008). This contest is sponsored by IEEE Computer
Society Technical Committee on Services Computing, and is supported by
IBM Research (Services Computing). 

 

Procedures and Important Dates 

*  The Contest will be announced on Nov. 5, 2007.

*  The final paper submission is due on March 20, 2008. It should be
limited to 8 pages and follows the IEEE Computer Society Press
Proceedings Author Guidelines. 

*  The contest review result will be notified on April 6, 2008.  Six to
ten teams will be selected to the SCC08 and ICWS08 for the final
competition. The selected teams will also receive framed certificates
from the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Services
Computing. These teams will have their papers published in the
Proceedings of the 2008 IEEE Congress on Services (SERVICES 2008) per
some pre-requisite. 

* A camera-ready paper copy for the final competition is due on April
18, 2008.

* The finalists choose a final competition venue before April 25, 2008.

* The finalists participate in the contest exhibition and the contest
oral presentation session with their live demos and posters at SCC 2008
or ICWS 2008.

* The finalists will be announced at SCC 2008 in July 2008 and the
winners will be announced at ICWS 2008 in September 2008.

 

Team Structure

A contest team is made of at most 5 full-time undergraduate/graduate
students, a professor as an advisor.

 

Software Platforms and Demonstration

There is no special preference on particular software platforms.
Participants can choose their preferred software platforms for the
contest. The team should build an online demonstration system so that
the reviewers could understand the principle of the system and the key
techniques used by visiting the systems using a Web browser.

 

Contest Awards

* Each team on the final list will receive a framed certificate
presented by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Services
Computing.

* The teams on the final list will publish their papers in the
Proceedings of the 2008 IEEE Congress on Services (SERVICES 2008). One
registration fee is required.

* Each team on the final list will receive one student travel award for
a student member to present their work at SCC 2008 or ICWS 2008.

* $1,000 cash award will be shared among the winning teams.
