IEEE Technical Committee on Services Computing

The Technical Committee on Services

Introduction to Technical Committee

Services Computing has become a cross-discipline that covers the science and technology of bridging the gap between Business Services and IT Services. The underlying 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.

In November 2003, IEEE Computer Society (CS) officially approved the Technical Community for Services Computing. In May 2004, it was renamed to Technical Steering Committee for Services Computing (TSC-SC). In November 2004, IEEE Computer Society approved the Technical Committee on Services Computing (TCSVC), which 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.
