Call For Papers

The 8th IEEE 2011 International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2011)

Sponsored by the Technical Committee on Services Computing (TC-SVC)
IEEE Computer Society


Services account for a major part of the IT industry today. Companies increasingly like to focus on their core expertise area and use IT services to address all their peripheral needs. Services Computing is a new science which aims to study and better understand the foundations of this highly popular industry. It covers the science and technology of leveraging computing and information technology to model, create, operate, and manage business services. Since 2004, the International Conference on Services Computing (SCC) has provided a platform for practitioners to present the latest advances in services science. Like its predecessors, SCC 2011 will contribute in building the pillars of this important science and shaping the future of Services Computing.

Services Computing currently shapes the thinking of business modeling, business consulting, solution creation, service delivery, and software architecture design, development and deployment. The global nature of Services Computing leads to many opportunities and challenges and creates a new networked economic structure for supporting different business models. SCC 2011 will help in bridging the gap between business services and information technology by driving research in technologies such as service-oriented architecture (SOA), business process integration and management, service engineering and grid and cloud computing and Web 2.0. SCC 2011 will have the following major tracks: Foundations of Services Computing, Services Computing Practices and Applications and Business Aspects of Services Computing.

SCC 2011 is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Services Computing. SCC 2004 was held in Shanghai, China, September 15-18, 2004 . SCC 2005 was co-located with ICWS 2005 on July 11-15, 2005 in Orlando, Florida, USA. SCC 2006 was co-located with ICWS 2006 on September 18-22, 2006 in Chicago, Illinois, USA. SCC 2007 was co-located with ICWS 2007 on July 9-13, 2007 in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. SCC 2008 was held on July 8-11, 2008, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. SCC 2009 was held on September 21-25, 2009, Bangalore, India. SCC 2010 was co-located with ICWS 2010 on July 6-11, 2010 in Miami, Florida, USA. The SCC Proceedings has been included in EI Compendex.

The International Conference on Services Computing (SCC) covers the whole lifecycle of innovation research and enabling technologies, which includes enterprise modeling, business consulting, solution creation, services delivery, services orchestration, services optimization, services management, services marketing, services delivery and cloud computing, service-oriented architecture (SOA), business process integration and management, and Web services technologies and standards.

Authors are invited to submit original, UNPUBLISHED research papers that are not being considered in another forum. Duplicate submissions will be rejected from all conferences or journals without review. Manuscripts will be limited to 8 (IEEE Proceeding style: the IEEE Proceedings template in Word Format and IEEE Latex Style) pages and be printed on 10 or 11 size font. Please follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers. Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF or Word format) is required. Please visit the latest Services Computing Taxonomy to identify your innovation areas when you prepare your papers. It is required that all submissions MUST cite related work published in the proceedings of ICWS, SCC, CLOUD, SERVICES, APSCC, ECOWS, and related journals including TSC, JWSR, and IJBPIM.

Detailed Instructions for electronic paper submission, panel proposals, tutorial proposals, and review process can be found at the submission page. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference and present the paper. Only the accepted and presented papers will be published in the CD-ROM and On-line versions of the Proceedings of IEEE 2011 International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2011) by IEEE Computer Society Press.

Enhanced versions of selected papers published in SCC 2011 will be invited for publication in the IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC,, International Journal of Business Process Integration and Management (IJBPIM), and the International Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR).

One Best Paper Award and one Best Student Paper Award will be presented by SCC 2011. The first author of the best student papers should be a full-time student.

Review and Presentation Policy

"IEEE Policy and professional ethics requires that referees treat the contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others before publication. It is expected that no one with access to a paper under review will make any inappropriate use of the special knowledge, which that access provides. Contents of abstracts submitted to conference program committees should be regarded as privileged as well, and handled in the same manner. The Conference Publications Chair shall ensure that referees adhere to this practice. Organizers of IEEE conferences are expected to provide an appropriate forum for the oral presentation and discussion of all accepted papers.

An author, in offering a paper for presentation at an IEEE conference, or accepting an invitation to present a paper, is expected to be present at the meeting to deliver the paper. In the event that circumstances unknown at the time of submission of a paper preclude its presentation by an author, the program chair should be informed on time, and appropriate substitute arrangements should be made. In some cases it may help reduce no-shows for the Conference to require advance registration together with the submission of the final manuscript."
