Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the Proceedings (CD-ROM) of IEIS2018. The conference proceeding will be published in CD-ROM with IEEE Catalog Number and ISBN, and which will be included in IEEE Xplore Digital Library. To be eligible for publication in the conference proceedings, an accepted paper must be presented at the conference by one of the authors. The authors with excellent papers in conference proceedings will be invited to publish their academic thought and methods in some international academic journals indexed by SSCI/SCI or EI with high priority.

To foster and promote a community with a focused area of research, we are very pleased to announce that a special session will be organised. Youare cordially invited to contribute your research outcomes to the special session of the 8th International Conference on Logistics, Informatics and Service Sciences (LISS2018) in Toronto, Canada (http://icir.bjtu.edu.cn/liss2018/organization.jhtml)

Innovation and adoption of digital services and, subsequently, business transformation are caused by the emergence and application of smart technologies, such as cloud, big data analytics, AI, mobile technology and Internet of Things. Research and industrial practices have revealedgreat value and potential of the digital services and transformation. The transformationtakes placein many perspectives and all levels, such as in organisation (e.g. enterprise integration, ecosystems), technology (e.g. digitised services, cloud platform) and culture(e.g. end-to-end customer experience). In turn, such transformations also call for advancement ofmechanisms and practical solutions of data analytics, intelligent information management and business innovation that bring direct impact to business.  More information >>
