In 2010, ISSS will be part of the Annual Conference of the German Computer Science Society (GI), which also attracts a large variety of researchers from other computer science fields. ISSS welcomes research from academia and practice on Service Science, which includes general concepts, design principles and paradigms, engineering methodologies and all activities associated with managing IT-based services. Topics of ISSS 2010 include but are not limited to:

  • Service science theories and principles
  • Service design and engineering
  • Service innovation and management
  • Service marketing
  • Service modeling and simulation
  • Service industrialization und standardization
  • Service pricing and revenue strategies and organization models for services
  • Service configuration and evaluation
  • Service systems complexity

  • Service technologies

Review of Submitted Papers

All submitted papers will undergo a rigorous double blind peer review process and must not exceed 5000 words. Papers should be submitted in the format specified in the LNI publication guidelines. Only the title should be shown at the first page, without the author’s information. The submission should clearly relate to the topics of the conference. Papers will be selected based on originality, quality, soundness and relevance. All contributions must be original, not published, accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere. At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the conference.


Accepted ISSS papers will be published in the proceedings with an ISBN number as Lecture Notes in Informatics (LNI) from the Germany Computer Science Society. Following the conference, authors of selected research papers may be asked to submit improved and/or extended versions of their papers to leading international scientific journals, e.g. Electronic Markets – The International Journal on Networked Business.
