IEEE 2014 Second International Workshop on Future Services (FS2014)

One day between June 27 and July 2, 2014, at Hilton Anchorage, Alaska, USA
within IEEE SERVICES 2014


Services comprise a vital component of the world economy. Technology has enabled a revolutionary approach to both the creation and the delivery of services, modifying the ways we view and perceive our knowledge environment. The field of services has thus grown extensively, and there is an increasing need to develop models and techniques for identifying future services which will expand to all areas of business, government, and academia. The workshop goal is to identify methods that will either predict future services or propose services for future needs. The scope of identifying future service needs can be short term (5 years) or long term (20 years). The workshop seeks to define the next generation of services and bring together big data analysis methods, services analysis techniques, as well as models from other research areas which can be modified to the area of future services.

"It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future." (Markus M. Ronner, 1918)
