SCF 2020 Creates Future future of New ABCDE (AI, Blockchain, Cloud, BigData & IOT) and Enters the 5G for Services Era

Future of New ABCDE

Founded by Dr. Liang-Jie Zhang (LJ) when he was with IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, the First International Conference on Web Services (ICWS, was conceived and attracted more than 120 participants in June 2003 in Las Vegas, USA.

In the past 17 years, ICWS community has been expanded from Web engineering innovations to scientific research (Services Computing) for the whole services industry.

The service delivery platforms have been expanded to mobile platforms, Internet of Things, cloud computing, and edge computing. The services ecosystem is gradually enabled, value added, and intelligence embedded through enabling technologies such as big data, artificial intelligence, and cognitive computing. In the coming years, all the transactions with multiple parties involved will be transformed to blockchain.

Based on the technology trends and best practices in the field, the Services Conference Federation (SCF) was created in 2017 as a conference umbrella's code name for all services-related conferences. SCF 2017 attracted more than 600 participants to share the latest developments in the field.

Today, with the same leadership of the conference operation committee of SCF 2017, we are very proud to announce that SCF 2020's 10 co-located theme topic conferences will all center around "services", while each focusing on exploring different themes (web-based services, cloud-based services, Big Data-based services, services innovation lifecycle, AI-driven ubiquitous services, blockchain driven trust service-ecosystems, industry-specific services and applications, and emerging service-oriented technologies).
