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 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 2011 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, and 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 2011 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 and grid and cloud computing and Web 2.0. SCC 2011 will have the following major tracks: Foundations of Services Computing, Services Computing Practices and Applications and Business Aspects of Services Computing.

SCC 2011 will be co-located with the 7th IEEE 2011 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2011), the 4th IEEE 2011 International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2011), the 9th IEEE 2011 International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2011), and 2nd IEEE Cloud Forum for Practioners (ICFP 2011) to grow itself.

SCC 2011 is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Services Computing. SCC 2004 was held in Shanghai, China, September 15-18, 2004 . SCC 2005 was co-located with ICWS 2005 on July 11-15, 2005 in Orlando, Florida, USA. SCC 2006 was co-located with ICWS 2006 on September 18-22, 2006 in Chicago, Illinois, USA. SCC 2007 was co-located with ICWS 2007 on July 9-13, 2007 in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. SCC 2008 was held on July 8-11, 2008, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. SCC 2009 was held on September 21-25, 2009, Bangalore, India. SCC 2010 was held on July 6-11, 2010, Miami, Florida, USA. The SCC Proceedings has been included in EI Compendex.

As shown in the blue-outlined area, the International Conference on Services Computing (SCC) covers the whole lifecycle of innovation research and enabling technologies, which includes enterprise modeling, business consulting, solution creation, services delivery, services orchestrtaion, services optimization, services management, services marketing, services delivery and cloud computing, service-oriented architecture (SOA), business process integration and management, and Web services technologies and standards.  

As shown in the following landscape of the IEEE SERVICES conferences, the business service sectors (vertical industries and cross-industries) are illustrated in the dotted area (in orange) as the major focus of SERVICES 2011. They are application-specific areas that apply services computing disciplined approach.

Landscape of IEEE SERVICES conferences

The following two theme conferences continue to explore the deep knowledge space. 

About IEEE

IEEE is the world’s largest professional association advancing innovation and technological excellence for the benefit of humanity.  IEEE and its members inspire a global community to innovate for a better tomorrow through its highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities. IEEE is the trusted “voice” for engineering, computing and technology information around the globe.

About IEEE Computer Society

With nearly 85,000 members, the IEEE Computer Society (CS) is the world’s leading organization of computing professionals. Founded in 1946, and the largest of the 38 societies of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the CS is dedicated to advancing the theory and application of computer and information-processing technology.

About the Technical Committee on Services Computing

IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Services Computing (TCSVC) is a multi-disciplinary group whose purpose is to advance and coordinate work in the field of Services Computing carried out throughout the IEEE in scientific, engineering, standard, literary and educational areas. 

Services Computing has become a cross-discipline that covers the science and technology of bridging the gap between Business Services and IT Services. The underneath breaking technology suite includes Web services and service-oriented architecture (SOA), cloud computing, business consulting methodology and utilities, business process modeling, transformation and integration. This scope of Services Computing covers the whole lifecycle of services innovation research that includes business componentization, services modeling, services creation, services realization, services annotation, services deployment, services discovery, services composition, services delivery, service-to-service collaboration, services monitoring, services optimization, as well as services management. The goal of Services Computing is to enable IT services and computing technology to perform business services more efficiently and effectively.
