Resuming the three successful service computing contests (2006, 2007, and 2008), we extend this contest to a wider scope in 2009. The Service Cup Contest 2009 has two categories: the Service Computing Contest is open to university students and professors to demonstrate results from course projects or research projects, and the Service Industry Contest is open to the practitioners from industry to show case their products or development projects. The contest focuses on using the SOA methodologies, solution reference architectures, and tools to better solve business issues facing today. The team can select a problem in any context to explore the new frontiers of SOA techniques. In the past contests, the contest teams have worked on a wide range of applications from public safety, health, information management and retrieval, education and so on. We are expecting the contest participants to explore the new frontiers of SOA techniques.
Each team is required to submit a technical paper and build a demo system which should be accessible on line. The finalists will be invited to ICWS 2009 in LA, USA for on-site contest. The The papers of the finalists will be published in the proceedings of the 2009 IEEE Congress on Services (SERVICES 2009) which is collected in IEEE Digital Library. IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Services Computing sponsors travel awards to the top teams in final list. NSF funding for student travel is pending.
- Paper and demo submission due date: February 20, 2009.
- Decision notification: March 20, 2009.
- Camera-ready copy due date: April 10, 2009.
- the final competition is one day between July 7-10 during ICWS2009 (will be decided later).
• 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 2009 IEEE Congress on Services (SERVICES 2009) (http://www.servicescongress.org/2009/1/). The proceedings is collected by IEEE Digital Library. One registration fee is required. A second registration is free.
• Each team on the final list will receive one student travel award for a student member to present their work ICWS 2009.
• $1,000 cash award will be shared among the winning teams.
