2008 IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2008)
September 23-26, 2008, Beijing, China
Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society
Technical Committee on Services Computing (http://tab.computer.org/tcsc)

ICWS 2008 organizing committee invites you to participate in the sixth
year of ICWS in Beijing, China on September 23-26, 2008.

ICWS has been a prime international forum for both researchers and
industry practitioners to exchange the latest fundamental advances in
the state of the art and practice of Web services. ICWS also aims to
identify emerging research topics and define the future of Web
services. Over the past six years, ICWS has grown steadily, attracting
over 250 participants on a regular basis. ICWS 2007 was held on July
9-13, 2007 in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA; ICWS 2006 was held on
September 18-22, 2006 in Chicago, Illinois, USA; ICWS 2005 was held on
July 11-15, 2005 in Orlando, Florida, USA; ICWS 2004 was held on July
6-9, 2004 in San Diego, California, USA; ICWS 2003 was held on June
23-26, 2003 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. From technology foundation
perspective, Services Computing has become the default discipline for
the emerging modern services science.

ICWS 2008 will be co-located with and strategically part of the 2008
IEEE Congress on Services (SERVICES 2008) (Part B: Beijing) to explore
"Services" (Science and Technology), which has been formally promoted
by IEEE Computer Society since 2003!

As a major implementation technology for modernizing services industry
in the Services Computing discipline, Web services are Internet-based
application components published using standard interface description
languages and universally available via uniform communication

The technical program of ICWS 2008 will include refereed paper
presentations and work-in-progress sessions in both research and
industry tracks. In a departure from past versions of the conference,
the research track will highlight foundational work that strives to
push beyond the limits of existing Web services platforms and
products, including experimental efforts, innovative systems and
investigations that identify weaknesses in the existing Web services
model. Panels and tutorials will run before and throughout the

In addition, ICWS 2008 will be supported by a set of featured events
at the 2008 IEEE Congress on Services (SERVICES 2008) including the
2008 IEEE Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) Industry Summit, 2008
IEEE International Services Computing Contest, Services University,
and 2008 IEEE Services Computing Workshops, IEEE SOA Standards
Symposium, and IEEE Services Computing Ph.D. Student Symposium.

The ICWS 2008 research track seeks original, unpublished research
papers reporting substantive new work in various aspects of Web
services. Research papers must properly cite related work and clearly
indicate their contributions to the field of Web services. All topics
relevant to Web services are of interest, but the conference program
committee particularly encourages submissions related to:

* Technologies for Building and Operating Massive Web Services Data  
* Quality of service in Web Services systems (real-time  
responsiveness, media delivery, etc.)
* Technologies for Building Highly Reliable, Available, Secure and  
Scalable Web Services
* Web Services for Sensors and Embedded Systems
* Autonomic Web Services Platform Technologies
* Security Challenges for Web Services
* Privacy-Preserving Web Services Technologies
* Web Services Discovery (particularly in challenging environments  
such as mobile or wireless settings)
* Web Services Standards and Implementation Technologies
* Extended Web Services Specifications (security, QoS, other properties)
* Web Services Composition and Integration
* Type Systems and Type Checking for Web Services
* Technologies for Web Services Assessment (i.e., validation &  
verification, testing, etc.)
* Web 2.0 and Web X.0 Concepts in Web Services Settings
* Semantic Web Services
* Multimedia Web Services
* Web Services-driven Business Process Management
* Web Services-based Mobile Computing
* Web Services-based Grid Applications
* Domain-specific Web Services Applications and Solutions
* Web Services Modeling, Relationship Binding, and Tooling
* Other Interested Topics

All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 program
committee members. Please note that the same paper should NOT be
submitted to ICWS 2008 and SCC 2008 simultaneously. Such duplicate
submissions will be rejected from both conferences without
review. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings
published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Extended versions of
selected best papers published in the ICWS 2008 will be invited for
publication in the International Journal of Web Services Research
(JWSR), the International Journal of Business Process Integration and
Management (IJBPIM) , and the International Journal of Grid and
Utility Computing (IJGUC) . Both the ICWS Proceedings and JWSR are
included in EI Compendex. JWSR is also indexed in SCI-E.

Submitted manuscripts will be limited to 8 (IEEE Proceedings style)
pages and required to be formatted using the IEEE Proceedings
template. Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF or Word format)
is required. Detailed instructions for electronic paper preparation
and submission, panel proposals, tutorial proposals, and review
process can be found at http://conferences.computer.org/icws/2008/. At
least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to the
conference and present the paper. One Best Paper award and one Best
Student Paper award will be granted at ICWS 2008. The first author of
the best student paper must be full-time student.

If your paper is application or solution oriented, you can consider
submitting it to ICWS 2008 Industry Track. Manuscripts submitted to
the Research Track focusing on application or solution descriptions
may be recommended to the Industry Track for further
considerations. Submitted papers with novel ideas but not accepted by
the Research Track and Industry Track may also be recommended to the
Work-in-Progress Track.

Review Policy

IEEE Policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the
contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be
disclosed to others before publication. It is expected that no one
with access to a paper under review will make any inappropriate use of
the special knowledge, which that access provides. Contents of
abstracts submitted to conference program committees should be
regarded as privileged as well, and handled in the same manner. The
Conference Publications Chair shall ensure that referees adhere to
this practice.

Organizers of IEEE conferences are expected to provide an appropriate
forum for the oral presentation and discussion of all accepted
papers. An author, in offering a paper for presentation at an IEEE
conference, or accepting an invitation to present a paper, is expected
to be present at the meeting to deliver the paper. In the event that
circumstances unknown at the time of submission of a paper preclude
its presentation by an author, the program chair should be informed on
time, and appropriate substitute arrangements should be made. In some
cases it may help reduce no-shows for the Conference to require
advance registration together with the submission of the final
