Services account for a major part of the IT industry today. Companies increasingly like to focus on their core expertise area and use IT services to address all their peripheral needs. Services Computing is a new science which aims to study and better understand the foundations of this highly popular services industry. It covers the science and technology of leveraging computing and information technology to model, create, operate, and manage business services. Since 2004, the International Conference on Services Computing (SCC) has provided a platform for practitioners to present the latest advances in services science. Like its predecessors, SCC 2009 will contribute in building the pillars of this important science and shaping the future of Services Computing.

Services Computing currently shapes the thinking of business modeling, business consulting, solution creation, service delivery as well as software architecture design, development and deployment. The global nature of Services Computing leads to many opportunities and challenges and creates a new networked economic structure for supporting different business models. SCC 2009 will help in bridging the gap between business services and information technology by driving research in technologies such as service-oriented architecture (SOA), business process integration and management, service engineering, cloud computing and Web 2.0. The theme of the conference is "Innovation in Globally Integrated Services". SCC 2009 will have the following major tracks: Foundations of Services Computing, Services Computing Practices and Applications and Business Aspects of Services Computing.

SCC 2009 is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Services Computing. The proceedings of SCC have been included in EI Compendex. SCC was previously collocated with ICWS and was held in various places including Shanghai (2004), Orlando (2005), Chicago (2006), Salt Lake City (2007) and Hawaii (2008). SCC 2009 will concentrate on the science and technology of Business/Application Services and the bridging technologies such as Business Strategy and Design, Business Process Integration and Management, Grid and Cloud Computing, and SOA Services and Solutions; while the 2009 IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2009) will continue to put its focus on all aspects of Web based services from infrastructure and application perspectives; IEEE Congress on Services (SERVICES 2009) covers innovations in all vertical services industries and education agenda.
