2007 IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2007)
===================================================================
http://conferences.computer.org/scc/2007

July 9-13, 2007, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA
 
Theme: Services: Science, Technology, and Business
Celebrating the 2007 IEEE Congress on Services! 
Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society
Technical Committee on Services Computing (tab.computer.org/tcsc)
 
Building on its great success in 2004, 2005, and 2006, the 2007 IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2007) 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, grid and utility computing. SCC 2007 will be co-located with the 2007 IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2007). IEEE Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) Industry Summit, IEEE International Services Computing Contest, IEEE SOA Standards Symposium, IEEE Services Computing Workshops, IEEE Services Computing Ph.D. Student Symposium will be featured at this joint event. The theme of SCC 2007 is "Services: Science, Technology, and Business" 
 
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 2007 has the following three major research tracks: Foundations of Services Computing, Services-Centric Business Models, and Business Process Integration and Management.
 
Authors are invited to submit original, UNPUBLISHED research papers that are not being considered in another forum.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 2007 and ICWS 2007 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 http://conferences.computer.org/scc/2007/. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference and present the paper. The enhanced version of the selected papers published in SCC 2007 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 possibly other IEEE journals in the field of Services Computing. One Best Paper Award and one Best Student Paper Award will be presented by SCC 2007. 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."
