2008 IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2008)
Services: Business, Technology, and Application

Celebrating the 2008 IEEE Congress on Services!
July 8-11, 2008, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society
Technical Committee on Services Computing (

Services now account for more than half of the U.S. economy. Services Computing, as a new cross discipline, address how to enable IT to help people perform business services more efficiently and effectively. Building on its great successes in 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007, the 2008 IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2008) continues to bridge the gap between Services Computing and Business models with an emerging suite of ground-breaking technologies that include service-oriented architecture (SOA), business process integration and management, services engineering, grid/utility computing, and Web 2.0. The theme of SCC 2008 is "Services: Business, Technology, and Applications". From a technology foundation perspective, Services Computing has become a default discipline in the modern services industry.

SCC 2008 will be co-located with and strategically part of the 2008 IEEE Congress on Services (SERVICES 2008) in Hawaii to explore "Services" (Science and Technology), which has been formally promoted by IEEE Computer Society since 2003. Global Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Industry Summit, IEEE International Services Computing Contest, IEEE SOA Standards Symposium, IEEE Services Computing Workshops, Services University, and IEEE Services Computing Ph.D. Student Symposium will be featured at this joint event in Hawaii, USA.

Services Computing currently shape 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 2008 has the following major research tracks: Foundations of Services Computing, Services-Centric Business Models, Business Process Management and Integration, and SOA Tools, Solutions and Services.

SCC 2008 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. The SCC Proceedings has been included in EI Compendex.

SCC 2008 will concentrate on the science and technology of Business/Application Services and bridging technologies such as Business Strategy and Design, Business Process Integration and Management, Grid and Utility Computing, and SOA Services and Solutions. ICWS 2008 ( will continue to put its focus on all aspects of Web services from Computer Science and Engineering perspectives.

Authors are invited to submit original, UNPUBLISHED research papers that are not being considered in another forum. Please note that the same paper should not be submitted to SCC 2008 and the 2008 International Conference of Web Services (ICWS 2008) simultaneously. Such duplicate submissions will be rejected from both conferences without review. Manuscripts will be limited to 8 (IEEE Proceeding 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. Detailed Instructions for electronic paper submission, panel proposals, tutorial proposals, and review process can be found at At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference and present the paper. Enhanced versions of selected papers published in SCC 2008 will be invited for publication in the International Journal of Business Process Integration and Management (IJBPIM), the International Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR), the International Journal of Grid and Utility Computing (IJGUC), and the IEEE Transactions on Services Computing. One Best Paper Award and one Best Student Paper Award will be presented by SCC 2008. The first author of the best student papers should be full-time student.

Review 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."
