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 2016 is an important forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange ideas 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), and Bangkok, Thailand (2015). As the tenth event in the increasingly popular series, APSCC 2016 expects to attract outstanding researchers from all over the world to Zhangjiajie - one of the most beautiful cities in China.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Scope and Interests

All papers need to be submitted electronically through the conference website ( with PDF format. Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Papers must be clearly presented in English, must not exceed 14 pages or 20 pages with the over length charge in Springer LNCS format, including tables, figures, references and appendixes. Papers will be selected based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation assessed by at least three reviewers. Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present the work. APSCC 2016 reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from the digital library and index service), if the paper is not presented at the conference. All accepted papers will be published by Springer LNCS (EI Indexed). One outstanding paper will be selected to receive the Best Paper Award.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Important Dates
