Introduction to Technical Community

Services Computing has been recognized as an important science and engeering discipline that aims to advance the technologies required for innovatively bridging the gap between users and Information & Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructures. Technical Community on Services Computing (TCSVC) of IEEE Computer Society focuses on advancing transdiciplinary services computing technologies with worldwide research and development (R&D) leaders in academia and industry. It commits to Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) with support for related local activities and worldwide events at the conferences it sponsors.

The research areas of Services Computing include, among other foundational science and engineering themes, service-oriented computation, big data, service decomposition & composition, cloud computing, edge computing & communications, quantum software, enterprise computing, service management, workflows & business process management, service verticals & ecosystems, and business-IT alignment. They provide historical personal growth opportunities with impactful challenges to researchers and practitioners of services computing.

IEEE TCSVC will celebrate her 20th birthday in 2023. 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. In October 2021, “Technical Committees” of IEEE-CS are renamed as “Technical Communities”.

Chair’s Message by Shangguang Wang

As the TCSVC Chair, I will enrich the activities of service computing in emerging important R&D areas, e.g., space service computing, service-first computing for 6G, big services, crossover services, and Internet of Value (IoV) services. Moreover, I will continue to support our major activities through established conferences and awards for excellence. Finally, I will promote our visibility worldwide by collaborating with more regional top-quality conferences, workshops, and seminars.
