Services Science has emerged as a new research discipline that receives growing attention both in academia and practice. It combines research from various disciplines which have evolved more or less separately. While theories from organizational and marketing science usually capture the nature of these products, engineering disciplines focus on shaping and developing these information goods, and the information systems field on integrating services which are perceived as encapsulated application functionalities with standardized (XML) interfaces. These research streams converge in the new interdisciplinary area of Services Science which integrates the principles, design, and management of economic and technical services.

The organizers invite researchers and practitioners from various connected fields to provide contributions to be included in the conference program. Topics should be in line with one or more of the themes listed below:

• Smart Services in Theory and Practice
• Smart Services in High-Tech sectors
• Smart Services in Management and Application

Papers may include theories, principles, studies and use cases, or focus on special issues regarding smart services such as e.g. technology support or governance.

The ISSS 2012 seeks two types of contributions in English or German with a minimum of 6 pages:

Full research papers
Industrial experience papers

All Submissions will undergo a double blind peer review process. Papers will be selected based on originality, quality, soundness and relevance. All contributions must be original, not published, accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere.
Publishing of accepted works

All research and industrial papers will be published within a series of the Institute for Applied Informatics (InfAI) e. V. / LIV and made publicly available.

For the fourth time, the "International Symposium on Services Science (ISSS)" will offer a unique platform for advancing research and discussions in Service Science. In 2012, the ISSS will focus on knowledge intensive business services, also known as Smart Services, and their application in theory and practice. ISSS will be part of the Multi-Conference SABRE (Software, Agents and Services for Business, Research and E-Sciences, 23rd-25th September 2012) and be held in Leipzig, Germany as a one-day event on the 25th September, 2012.

The symposium is organized by the Information Systems Institute and the Department of Computer Science at the University of Leipzig as well as the Institute for Applied Informatics (InfAI), the Fraunhofer MOEZ and the Leipziger Informatik-Verbund (LIV).

Selected best papers will be invited to create extended versions and submit to special issues of international journals (Electronic Markets - The International Journal, International Journal of Information Systems in the Service Sector (IJISSS) , International Journal on Service Science, Management, Engineering and Technology (IJSSMET) ).
