The Hot Topics of AIMS 2017: Real-world Solutions and Growing Ecosystems

AIMS 2017 organizing committee invites you to participate in the 6th edition of AIMS, to be held on June 25-June 30 2017, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.

Regular Theme of AIMS 2017:  Wearable Technology and Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications

Wireless and ubiquitous connectivity have enabled mobile computing and Internet access on the go as a life-enhancing and indispensable experience of modern life. More than 50 billion devices, in more than 200 device types, will likely be connected to the Internet by 2020 as integral components of a new generation of high-value application services for consumers and enterprises. API-defined mobile services have become essential ubiquitous services consumption and delivery enablers for many industries and government organizations worldwide. The 2017 IEEE International Conference on Mobile Services (MS) aims at providing an international forum that is dedicated to exploring different aspects of mobile services (from business management to computing systems, algorithms, and applications) and to promoting technological innovations in research and development of mobile services, including, but not limited to, wireless & sensor networks, mobile & wearable computing, mobile enterprise & eCommerce, ubiquitous collaborative & social services, machine-to-machine & Internet-of-things clouds, cyber-physical integration, and big data analytics for mobility-enabled services.

Mobile Services have been driving Internet innovations and transforming traditional businesses since iOS, Andriod, Windows Phone, and other mobile operating systems were introduced. We are leveraging mobile platforms such as WeChat, QQ, Facebook, Twitter, and others to analyze business opportunities, play games, conduct transactions, collaborate with team members, sell products, build relationships with e-commerce partners, create friend-circles, and manage projects as well as tasks. As an open platform, The HotTopics of the 2017 IEEE International Conference on AI & Mobile Services (IEEE AIMS 2017) is created to promote real-world solutions and growing ecosystems. 

The Hot Topics of IEEE AIMS 2017 invites you to submit practical innovations, solutions, and case studies which include but not limited to the following tracks.

- Facebook Mobile Services; 
- Twitter Mobile Services; 
- WeChat Mobile Services; 
- QQ Mobile Services; 
- LINE Mobile Services; 
- WhatsApp Mobile Services; 
- Google Mobile Services (e.g. Google Maps, Youtube, Google+); 
- SnapChat Mobile Services; 
- Skype Mobile Services; 
- Instagram Mobile Services; 
- Innovations of Mobile Operating System (e.g. Android, iOS, Windows Phone).

The HotTopics of IEEE AIMS 2017 has a dedicated submission system "2017 IEEE MS - HotTopics" powered by Please choose one of the above tracks for "Main topic" when you submit your abstracts and 8-page papers. All papers will be peer-reviewed by the program committee of IEEE MS 2017.

In addition, the regular conference theme of MS 2017 is wearable technology and Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. Topics of Interest include, not limited to:

The technical program of AIMS 2017 will include The HotTopics, a research track, an application track, a short paper track, and a collection of special tracks. The research track will highlight foundational work that strives to push beyond the limits of existing mobile services platforms and products, including experimental efforts, innovative systems and investigations that identify weaknesses in the existing mobile services models.

All topics relevant to Intelligent Internet of Things are of interest. AIMS 2017 will organize refereed paperreviews in 9 research areas (themes):

Wireless & sensor networks
Mobile & wearable computing
Mobile enterprises & eCommerce
Ubiquitous collaborative & social services
Machine-to-machine Interaction
Internet-of-things & edge computing
Cyber-physical integration
Bigdata analytics for mobility-enabled services
Mobile Health and Services

The AIMS 2017 tracks seek original, UNPUBLISHED research papers reporting substantive new work in various aspects of delivering intelligent mobile services. Track papers MUST clearly indicate their contributions to the field and properly cite related work in the field, such as those published in the proceedings of ICWS, SCC, CLOUD, SE, SERVICES, APSCC, ECOWS, and related journals including TSC, JWSR, and IJBPIM.

All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 program committee members. Accepted and presented papers from all MS tracks will appear in the conference proceedings published by IEEE. Extended versions of selected research track papers will be invited for potential publication in the IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC), International Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR), and International Journal of Business Process Integration and Management (IJBPIM). Both TSC and JWSR are indexed by SCI and EI [Link]. According to Thomson Scientific, TSC's Impact Factor in 2014 is 3.049.

Submitted research and applications and industry track manuscripts will be limited to 8 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages and REQUIRED to be formatted using the IEEE Proceedings template. Submitted Short Paper track manuscripts will be limited to 4 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages. Unformatted papers and papers beyond the page limit will not be reviewed. Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF or Word format) is required. Detailed instructions for electronic paper preparation and submission, panel proposals, tutorial proposals, workshop proposals, and review process can be found at conference site.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to the conference and present the paper. One Best Paper award and one Best Student Paper award will be granted at AIMS 2017. The first author of the best student paper must be a full-time student.

If your paper is application or solution oriented, you can consider submitting it to AIMS 2017 Application Track. Manuscripts submitted to the Research Track focusing on application or solution descriptions may be recommended to the Application Track for further consideration if the session slots are available.
