         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.


Topics of interest for the IEEE APSCC 2009 industry track include, but 
are not limited to:

  - Services Computing Industry Adoption Case Studies
      + Deployment  (including pilot implementation) of services 
computing concepts and solutions in specific industry verticals, for 
          * Aerospace, Automotive, Digital Media and Entertainment, 
Financial Services, Government Services, Healthcare, Supply Chain and 

  - Services-centric Design and Implementation
      + Services-based business process management
      + Service composition and reuse of existing components/services
      + Servitization of existing software for better reuse or catering 
for new business models
      + SOA-based architectures and solution stacks
      + Software as a Service (SaaS) development

  - Technology Enablers for Services-centric Business Models
      + Pay-per-use models
      + Quality of Service (QoS)
      + Service Level Agreements (SLAs)
      + Service packaging for sale (or resale)
      + Subscription-based models
