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Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered in another forum.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

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.
