SBCS 2010: 1st Brazilian Symposium on Services Science and 1st Meeting of the Latin American and Caribbean Network on Services (Nov 2010, Brazilia)

Website: www.cienciadeservicos.com.br.
Submission deadline: 15 July 2010.
Venue and date of the event: Brazilia, 17-19 November 2010.

Services science is a multidisciplinary field which brings together the different areas of knowledge focused on the study of services. These include, inter alia, engineering, administration, economics, design and the social sciences.  In this respect we hope that the Brazilian Symposium on Services Science will attract papers from authors working in the different areas of expertise concerned with the study of services activities.  Initially, authors of such papers are invited to send summaries of papers for evaluation.  Authors whose summaries are accepted by the evaluators will be invited to submit complete versions of their papers for presentation during the Symposium.  Publication of selected papers in their complete versions is not obligatory and authors may simply agree to their summaries being published.

Service design lies in the centre of attention in contemporary, increasingly service-oriented knowledge economies. In such contexts, user experience is paramount, including both the interfaces and interactions that customers use to contact the service provider, as well as the back-office activities performed by the service provider. Given the complexity of services in modern, multicultural, networked societies and the criticality of their environmental impact, service design becomes a major issue for the years to come.
