Activities

The Technical Committee on Services Computing (TCSVC) sponsors professional meetings, publishes newsletters and/or bulletins, edits magazines & journals, conducts standards activities guided by IEEE Computer Society Standard Activity Board (SAB), provides guidance to the IEEE Computer Society matters of importance of the community, as well as help co-ordinate academic, funding agency, and industry activities in the aforementioned areas.

The IEEE TCSVC Outstanding Leadership Award recognizes one individual for her/his outstanding leadership contributions to the services community and to the field of services computing, and his leadership and visionary contributions to society at large through promotion and applications of services computing concepts to improve global business management, enterprise computing and applications of services computing to a variety of science, engineering, and business domains.

The IEEE TCSVC Research Innovation Award recognizes one individual or one group of collaborators whose outstanding technical innovations in the field of services computing have had a lasting impact in advancing the theory and practice of the field. The contributions must have significantly influenced the direction of research and development of the field or transferred to practice in significant and innovative ways and/or enabled the development of commercial systems/products.

The IEEE TCSVC Outstanding Service Award recognizes one individual for her/his outstanding services to building the services computing community with significant and persistent volunteer efforts, such as services to IEEE TCSVC activities worldwide, annual World Congress on Services events, and/or satellite services computing events of SERVICES in different regions of the world.

The Open Data And Benchmarking Initiative (ODABI) aims to facilitate the research and development of innovative services computing technologies with open datasets and benchmarking suites, particularly the technologies for advancing, composing and managing API-defined industrial services.

The contributions must have significantly influenced the direction of research and development of the field or transferred to practice in significant and innovative ways and/or enabled the development of commercial systems/products.

The IEEE TCSVC Outstanding Service Award recognizes one individual for her/his outstanding services to building the services computing community with significant and persistent volunteer efforts, such as services to IEEE TCSVC activities worldwide, annual World Congress on Services (SERVICES) events, and/or satellite services computing events of SERVICES in different regions of the world.

Annual call for nominations for the awards is due April 30th of the award year and is publicized through IEEES TCSVC social media channels. Award ceremony is held at the annual IEEE World Congress on Services, co-located with IEEE ICWS (Web-based Services), CLOUD, SCC (Services Computing), BigData Congress, AIMS (AI & Mobile Services), ICIOT (Internet of Things), ICCC (Cognitive Computing), EDGE (Edge Computing) and SERVICES.

Eligibility

  • Qualified candidates exclude current officers of IEEE TCSVC and members of the IEEE TCSVC Awards Committee.

Nomination Process

  • Anyone in the field can nominate one person. Self-nominations are not accepted.
  • Nominations should include a proposed citation (up to 25 words) and a detailed statement to justify the nomination (500 words or less).
  • Two supporting letters need be submitted upon request. The letters should address the significance of the contributions cited in the nomination with emphasis on the impact field(s).
  • Nominations should be sent to the IEEE TCSVC Awards Committee Chair, appointed by the IEEE TCSVC Chair.
  • Nominations that did not result in an award can be resubmitted or updated in subsequent years.
  • The Awards Committee will evaluate all nominations and decide on zero or more winners.

Open Data And Benchmarking Initiative (ODABI)

The Open Data And Benchmarking Initiative (ODABI) aims to facilitate the research and development of innovative services computing technologies with open datasets and benchmarking suites, particularly the technologies for advancing, composing and managing API-defined industrial services.

As the first step toward reaching the goal, a partial list of existing open datasets and benchmarking suites on the web is available for download at odabi.xls.

In order to facilitate collaborating on the ODABI effort, a discussion topic has been created for ODABI at the IEEE Services Computing Community: http://services.oc.ieee.org/odabi.

The IEEE On-line Community for Services Computing provides free registration. Active participation in this community is encouraged if you would like to contribute to and/or benefit from the ODABI effort.

Major updates on ODABI activities will also be distributed through the TCSVC-ANNOUNCE mailing list. Private feedback on the ODABI effort can be emailed to “rong.chang AT ieee.org”.
