Introduction

Beijing, China

Services, service operations, logistics, and informatics are becoming ever more complex and interdependent. They are playing an increasingly important role in today’s world economy. Information and communications technology provides cyberinfrastructure and platforms to achieve more efficient and productive services operations. New types of service offerings are also emerging to meet the needs of customers and consumers. The IEEE Service Operations and Logistics, and Informatics (SOLI) conference series aims to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss issues, identify challenges and future directions, and share their R&D; findings and experiences in the areas of service design, innovations, marketing, and operations; logistics issues in services offerings, logistics as a service and related decision-making; informatics-enabled service offerings, and information technology/systems services and related design, engineering, operations, and sustaining. Papers relating to Services/Logistics Design, Innovations, Marketing, Operations, and Engineering; and their specific applications to Information Technology/Systems services are strongly encouraged. Special sessions on specific service topics are also welcome.
