         2009 IEEE Asia-Pacific Services Computing Conference

                           (IEEE APSCC 2009)

              December 7-11, 2009 -- Biopolis, Singapore


Services Computing is a new cross-discipline that covers the science and 
technology needed to bridge the gap between business services and 
IT/telecommunication services. The goal of services computing is to 
develop new computing technology and thereby enable more advanced 
IT/telecommunication services to support business services more 
efficiently and effectively.
IEEE APSCC 2009 is an important forum for researchers and industry 
practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in the 
state of art and practice of IT/telecommunication-driven business 
services and application services, as well as to identify emerging 
research topics and define the future directions of Services Computing.
