Abstracts may describe completed research or work-in-progress. While the presenting author need not be the first author of the work, we encourage authors to highlight the contribution of latinx individuals -- particularly the presenting author -- in the abstract. Authors of accepted abstracts will be asked to present their work in a poster session. A few authors will be selected to give 15-minute oral presentations. Authors accepted to present will be offered presentation coaching.
Artificial intelligence (AI) are methods that are applied to transform the way humans will interact with machines and the role that machines will play in all spheres of human life. On one hand, the immense potential of these technologies to enhance and enrich human life has led to a growing exhilaration and excitement on their use, and on the other hand, fear and apprehension of a dystopian future where machines have taken over loom on the horizon. These techniques are considered to be a category in computer science, involved in the research and application of intelligent computers. Traditional methods for modeling and optimizing complex problems require huge amounts of computing resources, and computing-based solutions can often provide valuable alternatives for efficiently solving problems. Due to making nonlinear and complex relationships between dependent and independent variables, these techniques can be performed in the field of bioengineering with a high degree of accuracy.
The 2021 IEEE World Congress on Services will be held as an all-online virtual event. The Congress is solely sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society under the auspice of the Technical Committee on Services Computing (TCSVC). The scope of the Congress will cover all aspects of services computing and applications, current or emerging. Centered around services computing, it covers various systems and networking research pertaining to cloud, edge and Internet-of-Things (IoT), as well as technologies for intelligent computing, learning, Big Data and blockchain applications, addressing critical issues such as knowledge network, high performance, security, privacy, dependability, trustworthiness, and cost-effectiveness. Particularly, 2021 Congress will welcome papers on the impact of COVID-19 on services and corresponding infrastructure.
Best papers of the workshop, after further revisions and independent reviews, will be considered for publication in a special issue of a renowned journal. By this holistic view we encounter a variety of challenges along the AI modeling cycle and software system engineering lifecycle as outlined in the figure below such as: • theory-practice gap in machine learning with impact on stability, reproducibility or integrity due to limitations of nowadays theoretical foundations in statistical learning theory or lack of control of high-dimensionality effects of deep learning; • facing computational constraints, e.g. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by, at least, 3 reviewers and judged on the basis of originality, contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the workshop. Short papers are meant for timely discussion and feedback at the workshop. Papers are accepted with the understanding that at least one author will register for the conference to present the paper.
Recent advances in machine learning, deep learning techniques, and sensors are greatly impacting how humans and computers and robots interact. For instance, surface electromyography sensors combined with deep-learning-based algorithms are currently being used to operate robotic prosthetic limbs or 3D pose estimation methods to control an avatar in Virtual Reality. Thus, the combination of sensors and machine learning techniques is enabling a range of novel and interesting applications. This Special Issue is intended to cover cutting-edge applications and research on new sensors, machine learning methods or their combination to perform human–computer and human–robot interaction. We strongly encourage the submission of papers focusing on the keywords below, but works on related topics will also be considered.
