The theme of the 2009 IEEE Congress on Services (SERVICES 2009) is "modernization of the services industry". SERVICES 2009 supports and further explores the science and technology of modernizing services industries using latest methods and technologies such as Services Computing, which has been formally promoted by IEEE Computer Society since 2003. From a technology perspective, Services Computing has become the foundational discipline for modernizing the services industry.

The first Joint Conference on SERVICES includes the 2005 International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2005) and the 2005 International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2005), which were held in July 2005 in Orlando, Florida, USA. The second Joint Conference on SERVICES includes the 2006 International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2006) and the 2006 International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2006), which were held in September 2006 in Chicago, IL, USA.

In 2007, the joint conference on Services formally became the 2007 IEEE Congress on Services (SERVICES 2007), which was held in July 2007 in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. The 2008 IEEE Congress on Services (SERVICES 2008) was co-located with the 2008 International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2008) in July 2008 in Hololulu, Hawaii, USA.

Accepted papers will appear in the CD-ROM version and online version of the proceedings of the 2009 IEEE Congress on Services (SERVICES 2009), which will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Extended versions of selected best papers published in the SERVICES 2009 will be invited for potential publication in the International Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR) , the International Journal of Business Process Integration and Management (IJBPIM) , and IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC). Both the ICWS Proceedings and JWSR are included in EI Compendex. JWSR is also indexed in SCI-E.

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 www.servicescongress.org. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to the conference and present the paper.


Paper Review Policy
===================
SERVICES 2009's 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 providers. 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.
