IEEE ICWS & SCC 2007 will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, July 9-13, 2007

Call for Participation


The 2006 IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2006) will be part of the IEEE Computer Society Congress on Software Technology and Engineering Practice (CoSTEP) to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of IEEE Computer Society!

ICWS has been a prime international forum for both researchers and industry practitioners to exchange the latest fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice of Web Services, identify emerging research topics, and define the future of Web Services. ICWS 2006 is sponsored by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Services Computing and will be co-located with the 2006 IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2006) and the 30th Annual International Computer Software and Applications Conference (COMPSAC 2006).

Web services are Internet-based application components published using standard interface description languages and universally available via uniform communication protocols. As in the fourth consecutive year, the program of ICWS 2006 will continue to feature research papers with a wide range of topics, focusing on various aspects of IT services. Some of the topics include Web services specifications and enhancements, Web services discovery and integration, Web services security, Web Services standards and formalizations, Web services modeling, Web services-oriented Software Engineering, Web services-oriented software testing, Web services-based applications and solutions, Web services realizations, and semantics in Web services.

As the most prestigious academic conference in the field of Web services, the First International Conference on Web Services ( ICWS 2003 ) was held at the Monte Carlo Resort in Las Vegas , Nevada , June 23 - 26, 2003, attracting hundreds of participants from 25 countries. ICWS 2004 was held at Westin Horton Plaza in San Diego , California , July 6-9, 2004. ICWS 2004 attracted about 250 registered participants from 22 countries and regions. The joint ICWS 2005 and SCC 2005 has attracted more than 300 registered participants. ICWS 2003, ICWS 2004, and ICWS 2005 have proven to be excellent catalysts for research and collaboration, and we fully expect that this coming ICWS 2006 conference will continue this trend.

The long-term goal of ICWS is to build up a reputable and respectable conference for the international community. It is very clear that the ICWS belongs to everyone.

Since Web services is an information technology (IT), ICWS 2006 will continue to put its focus on all aspects of Web services from Computer Science perspective; while SCC 2006 will concentrate on Business Services and the bridging technologies such as Business Strategy and Design, Business Process Integration and Management, and Grid and Utility Computing.
