         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.

IEEE APSCC 2009 Conference:     December 7 - 11, 2009


Manuscripts should be prepared according to the IEEE Computer Society Press - Proceedings Author Guidelines. Please visit the latest Services Computing Taxonomy to identify your innovation areas when you prepare your papers. Submissions must be in English and provided as PDF file. The length of manuscripts is limited to 8 pages. Submissions, which deviate from these guidelines, may be rejected without review.

Each manuscript will be judged on its originality, significance, technical quality, relevance, and presentation.
Authors are required to certify that their paper represents original work and is previously unpublished. Simultaneous submission to any other conference, workshop or journal is strictly excluded. In case a double submission is discovered, the corresponding paper will be rejected immediately.

Submitting a paper to IEEE APSCC 2009 means that if the paper is accepted, at least one author will attend the conference to present the paper.

Electronic Submission

Submission to IEEE APSCC 2009 will be electronically only. Authors are asked to create a submission system account first. Subsequently, this account can be used to submit one or more abstracts and upload corresponding papers.
The online submission system is accessible via the main IEEE APSCC 2009 Web-site
