NEW: SERVICES 2008 Color Poster Download (Published in IEEE
Computer Magazine on 11/2007 and 12/2007 and Communications of ACM on 11/2007 and 12/2007).
Services now account for more than half of the U.S.
economy. Services Computing, as a new cross discipline, addresses how
to enable IT technology to help people perform business services more
efficiently and effectively. Building on its great success 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
technology that includes service-oriented architecture (SOA), business
process integration and management, services engineering and grid/utility computing,
and Web 2.0. The theme of SCC 2008 is "Services: Business, Technology,
and Application". From a technology foundation perspective, Services
Computing has become the default discipline in the modern
SCC 2008 will be co-located with and strategically part of the 2008 IEEE Congress on
Services (SERVICES 2008) to explore "Services" (Science and Technology), which has been
formally promoted by IEEE Computer Society since 2003. IEEE 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, as a new cross discipline, addresses
how to enable IT and computing technology to help people perform
business processes, services, and applications more efficiently and
effectively. At the core of a business model is a set of processes that
jointly help yield a profit in an organization. As we can see, 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 few 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 the bridging technologies such as
Business Strategy and Design, Business Process Integration and
Management, Grid and Utility Computing, and SOA Services and Solutions;
while the 2008 IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2008) will continue to put its focus on all aspects of Web
services from Computer Science and Engineering perspectives.
