I wanted to use this note to remind you that the paper submission deadline of IEEE International Conference onn Services Computing (SCC2005) is approaching. Thank you very much for your great support.
2005 IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2005) ===================================================================
July 12-15, 2005, Orlando, Florida, USA Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society
Services now account for more than half of the U.S. economy. Services Computing, as a new cross discipline, addresses how to enable IT technology to help people perform business services more efficiently and effectively. 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, monitoring and management.
The 2005 IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC2005) aims to the topics of bridging the gap between Business Services and IT Services with a new ground breaking technology suite that includes Web services and service-oriented architecture (SOA), business strategy and design, business process integration and performance management, and utility/grid computing. It is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Services Computing and will be co-located with the 2005 IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2005).
The theme of this joint IEEE conference on SERVICES is 'Bridge the Gap between Business Services and IT Services'. Since Web Services is an IT technology, ICWS 2005 will put its focus on all aspects of IT infrastructure services. SCC 2005 concentrates on business services, business solutions, and the bridging technologies such as Business Strategy and Design, Business Process Integration and Management, SOA, and Grid and Utility Computing.
SCC 2004 was held in Shanghai, China, September 15-18, 2004. A total of 330 papers were submitted to SCC 2004. Submissions were from over30 countries and regions. 37 were accepted as full research papers, 9 were accepted as short papers, and 50 were accepted as special session papers.
SCC 2005 has the following major research tracks: Foundations of Services Computing, Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), Grid/Utility Computing, and Business Process Management and Business Integration.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered in another forum. Manuscripts will be limited to 8-10 (IEEE Proceeding style) pages and be printed on 10 or12 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
The length of the camera-ready of an accepted paper will be limited to8 (IEEE style) pages. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference and present the paper. The IEEE SCC 2005 Proceedings will be collected in EI Compendex. The detailed submission instructions can be found at SCC 2005 web site. The enhanced version of the selected best papers published in the SCC 2005 will be invited ! to publication in the International Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR) (by Idea Group) and possibly other related journals. Some speakers of the keynotes, panels, and tutorials will be invited to submit articles to extend their presentations for IEEE IT Professional Magazine.
All submissions will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness.
Each paper will be refereed by at least two to three researchers in the topical area.
BEST STUDENT PAPER AWARDS:
One Best Paper award and 1-3 Best Student Paper Awards will be presented by SCC 2005. The first author of the best student papers should be full-time students.
