July 5-10, 2010, Miami, Florida, USA
The theme of the 2010 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2010) is "modernization of the
services industry". SERVICES 2010 supports and further explores the science and technology
of modernizing services industries using latest methods and technologies such as as Services
Computing, which has been formally promoted by IEEE Computer Society since 2003. From a
technology perspective, Services Computing has become the foundational discipline for the
emerging modern services industry.
The first Joint Conference on SERVICES includes the 2005 International Conference on Web
Services (ICWS 2005) and the the 2005 International Conference on Services Computing

around the world together to share their experiences in Services related education, and builds
consensus on the core of Services Computing education, the knowledge areas and education
methodologies. The Summit will focus on pedagogical implications of Services education and
its role in overall Services Computing Curriculum Initiative (SCCI). The accepted papers will
be published in the Proceedings of the 2010 IEEE Sixth World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2010)
as a special section.
2010 SOA Industry Summit
The 2010 SOA Industry Summit encourages industry people to submit presentations and two-page
papers instead of 8-page research reports. The accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings
of the 2010 IEEE Sixth World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2010) as a special section.
2010 SERVICES Workshops
SERVICES 2009 will include a set of workshops and symposiums focusing on various themes of modernizing
services industry. The accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings of the 2010 IEEE Sixth
World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2010) as a special section.

Paper Submission and Review Process
Please use the submission page to find the right tracks and events to submit your papers.
All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 program committee members. Please note that
the same paper should NOT be submitted to other conferences or events simultaneously. Such duplicate
submissions will be rejected from all conferences without review.
Submitted manuscripts will be limited to 8 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages and required to be formatted
using the IEEE Proceedings template. Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF or Word format) is
required. Detailed instructions for electronic paper preparation and submission, panel proposals,
tutorial proposals, and review process can be found at www.servicescongress.org. At least one author
of each accepted paper is required to register to the conference and present the paper.
Only the accepted and presented papers will appear in the CD-ROM version and online version of the
proceedings of the IEEE 2010 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2010) , which will be published by
the IEEE Computer Society Press. Extended versions of selected best papers published in the SERVICES
2010 will be invited for potential publication in the International Journal of Web Services Research
(JWSR), the International Journal of Business Process Integration and Management (IJBPIM), and IEEE
Transactions on Services Computing (TSC). JWSR is included in EI Compendex and indexed in SCI-E.
According to Thomson Scientific, JWSR is listed in the 2008 Journal Citation Report with an Impact
Factor of 1.200. The journal ranks #47 of 99 in the Computer Science, Information Systems and ranks
#37 of 86 in Computer Science, Software Engineering.
Paper 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.

About the Technical Committee on Services Computing
IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Services Computing (TCSVC) is a multi-disciplinary group
whose purpose is to advance and coordinate work in the field of Services Computing carried out throughout
the IEEE in scientific, engineering, standard, literary and educational areas.
Services Computing has become a cross-discipline that covers the science and technology of bridging the
gap between Business Services and IT Services. The underneath breaking technology suite includes Web
services and service-oriented architecture (SOA), cloud computing, business consulting methodology and
utilities, business process modeling, transformation and integration. This scope of Services Computing
covers the whole lifecycle of services innovation research that includes business compoentization,
services modeling, services creation, services realization, services annotation, services deployment,
services discovery, services composition, services delivery, service-to-service collaboration, services
montoring, services optimization, as well as services management. The goal of Services Computing is to
enable IT services and computing technology to perform business services more efficiently and effectively.
