Title Description Date
Fifth Australasian Symposium on Service Research and Innovation (ASSRI'15)

Information Technology is a fundamental enabler of today’s service economy. There is also a growing recognition of the critical role of digital service innovation in improving productivity levels and quality of life. Further technological paradigms such as web services, the internet of things, cloud computing, social computing, and engagement platforms are redefining the landscape of service. This has brought increased policy and research focus to the conceptualisation, design, delivery, and evaluation of service systems.

The fifth Australasian Symposium on Service Research and Innovation will bring together a cross-disciplinary group of researchers and practitioners who are engaged in research and development in the area of service, broadly defined. It will feature keynote addresses and invited lectures by prominent researchers in the field. There will also be paper sessions to which researchers are invited to submit their recent work. A public sector and industry forum featuring some of the academic researchers and practitioners in industry and government will also be a part of the symposium. The symposium is expected to provide a forum for analyzing and assessing the progress achieved in pursuit of this goal and to explore the foundations of and emerging directions in service research.

The symposium is sponsored by the Service Science Society of Australia. This is the apex national body representing the services research community of Australia. It seeks to promote the understanding and use of service science in government, industry and academia. The Australasian Symposium on Service Research and Innovation series also serves as its annual meeting.

Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 15 pages in the Springer LNBIP format (see link), and will be reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of overall quality, relevance to service research, originality, significance, and clarity. Please submit papers through EasyChair. The proceedings will be published by Springer under the Business Information Processing (LNBIP) series. Selected papers will be fast-tracked for publication in a services research journal of good standing (in revised and expanded form).

Two best paper awards will be presented to the authors of (1) the best research paper and (2) the best student paper. The selection of the best papers will be made by the Program Committee Chairs in consultation with the Program Committee members based on the overall quality and contribution.

Second Australasian Symposium on Service Research and Innovation

With the increasingly dominant role that the service sector plays in both developed and emerging economies, the conceptualisation, design, delivery, and evaluation of service systems have attracted significant research attention and policy focus. There is also a growing recognition of the critical role of service innovation in improving productivity levels and quality of life. The transition from the manufacturing and goods-based orientation to more of a service-dominant logic has gathered momentum in recent years. Information and communication technologies (ICT) play a central role in the design and delivery of service systems. Internet and World Wide Web-related developments such as web 2.0, semantic web, cloud infrastructure, and service-oriented computing and web services, social computing, and (internet-based) human computation are just a few of the technological advances that are helping to redefine the landscape of service systems.

The Service Science Society of Australia is the apex national body representing the services research community of Australia. It seeks to promote the understanding and use of service science in government, industry and academia. The Australasian Symposium on Service Research and Innovation series serves as its annual meeting.

The second Australasian Symposium on Service Research and Innovation will bring together a cross-disciplinary group of researchers and practitioners who are engaged in research and development in the area of services, broadly defined. It will feature keynote addresses and invited lectures by prominent researchers in the field. There will also be contributed paper sessions as well as a forum for PhD students to present their service-related thesis research. An industry forum featuring a few of the key players in industry and government will also be a part of the symposium.

First International Conference on Exploring Services Science IESS 1.0 CALL FOR PAPERS** OVERVIEW**Services Science is not a cosmetic change of existing things. Introduced by IBM in 2002, it has now emerged and matured in a true trans-disciplinary atmosphere. Encompassing disciplines not only in management and engineering, it also draws from disciplines such as social and cognitive sciences, law, ethics, economics etc. to address the theoretical and practical aspects of the challenging services industry and its economy.----- Services Science leverages methods, results and knowledge stemming from these disciplines towards the development of its own concepts, methods, techniques and approaches thus creating the basis for true trans-disciplinary gatherings and the production of trans-disciplinary results. Services Science is building a concrete framework for trans-disciplinary purposes.------ Thus "service" must be considered in this conference with its multiple facets: economic, organizational, social, collective, ontological, regulatory, secure, etc. and also, of course, implemented by means of informatics. Sometimes it is referred to as information services to distinguish its restricted meanings in various disciplines like Economy or Informatics.------ The goal of this first conference is to build upon this growing community to further study and understand this emerging discipline. Academics, researchers and practitioners of all disciplines are expected to contribute their results and approaches to Services Science in a trans-disciplinary setting. In order to achieve the best possible mix of disciplines and their representation, the conference is structured around Service research topics, which are trans-disciplinary and around Service contexts, which are more disciplinary oriented.------ The contributions should address one or several topics, be grounded in one or several contexts and be open to trans-disciplinary approaches.------ **RESEARCH TOPICS** Research topics follow the Services lifecycle and include (not limited to) the following subtopics. Contributions addressing more than one topic are encouraged. ----- 1. Service innovation: Value models, Innovation/Creation process, Business trends, Technological trends, People trends, Service innovation and strategy. // 2. Service exploration: Consumer service needs modeling, Supplier service modeling, Business services requirements modeling, Service information & process modeling, Service exploration process. // 3. Service design : Service design methodologies and patterns, Service and re-design of organization of activities, Service co-design environments, tools, Requirements oriented towards services, Design of complex services, Service compliance with laws and regulations, Service security and safety. // 4. Service engineering: Ontologies and interoperability, Web-services, Service-oriented architectures, Ubiquitous & mobile computing, Service orchestration, choreography, composition, COTS, Enterprise architectures, Service security and safety engineering. // 5. Service sustainability: - IT service management: IT governance, Compliance with laws and regulations; - IS service management: Project management for IS services, Service evolution, QoS management (e.g. performance, trust, security, utility, usability), Business intelligence; - Service management: Service operations & marketing, Services and strategy, Future trends in services. 17/02/2010 - 00:00
