2006 IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2006)
Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of IEEE Computer Society!
September 18-22, 2006, Hyatt Regency at O'Hare Airport, Chicago, USA
Theme: Services, Solutions, and Business Models of Services Computing
Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society
Technical Committee on Services Computing (tab.computer.org/tcsc)
The 2006 IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2006)
is celebrating the 60th Anniversary of IEEE Computer Society! Building
on its great success in 2004 and 2005, SCC 2006 continues to bridge the
gap between Services Computing and Business models with an emerging
suite of ground-breaking technology that includes service-oriented
architecture, business process integration and management,
grid/utility/autonomic computing and mobile computing such as ad-hoc
networks (MANETs). SCC 2006 will be co-located with the 2006 IEEE
International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2006), the 30th Annual
International Computer Software and Applications Conference (COMPSAC
2006), and the 2006 IEEE Workshops on Software Technology and
Engineering Practice (STEP 2006). IEEE Services Oriented Architecture
(SOA) Industry Summit and IEEE International Services Computing Contest
will be featured at this joint event. The theme of SCC 2006 is
"Services, Solutions, and Business Models of Services Computing" 
Services Computing, as a new cross discipline, addresses how to enable
IT technology to help people perform business processes 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 processes 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 2006 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Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that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. 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/2006/. 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 2006
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 reputable journals. One
Best Paper award and 1-3 Best Student Paper Awards will be presented by
SCC 2006. The first author of the best student papers should be
full-time student. Topics of interest include, but are NOT limited to,
the following:
