The 2018 Asia-Pacific Services Computing Conference (APSCC 2018)

December 20-22, 2018, Zhuhai, China

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 ninth event in the increasingly popular series, APSCC 2018 expects to attract outstanding researchers from all over the world to Bangkok - the world famous beautiful city in Thailand, and continues to establish the status of APSCC as one of the major conferences on the services computing.
