Present CFP : 2020

13th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC2020)

December 7-10, 2020 – Leicester, United Kingdom

https://www.cs.le.ac.uk/events/UCC2020/index.htm

CONTEXT & SCOPE

Cloud computing has firmly established itself as an indispensable utility for the digital age. Cloud services consumers expect and rely on sufficient computing power, the availability of data and media, and that these will be accessible across a range of devices.

The expectation now is that Cloud services providers are capable of maintaining streamed services that are always available. Also, social and technological challenges are met with the development and adoption of new technologies that provide a safer, more secure, and richer digital experience for users and customers. Therefore, it is essential that sound scientific principles underpinning cloud technology and its economic value to both service providers and consumers are expressed and understood.

UCC2020 is the premier IEEE/ACM conference for areas related to Cloud Computing as a Utility and provides an international forum for leading researchers and practitioners in this important and growing field.
UCC2020 will be hosted at the University of Leicester, UK. The city of Leicester is a major city in the middle of country and is well connected to the rest of the world with road, rail and air networks.
This will be the 13th UCC in a successful conference series of community-driven events. Previous events were held in Shanghai, China (Cloud 2009), Melbourne, Australia (Cloud 2010 & UCC 2011), Chennai, India (UCC 2010), Chicago, USA (UCC 2012), Dresden, Germany (UCC2013), London, UK (UCC 2014), Limassol, Cyprus (UCC 2015), Shanghai, China (UCC 2016), Austin, Texas, USA (UCC 2017), Zürich, Switzerland (UCC 2018) and Aucland, New Zealand(UCC 2019).

UCC2020 is co-located with BDCAT 2020 and offers a technical programme, workshops, tutorials, doctoral symposium, and cloud challenge.

Manuscript Guidelines and Submission

Submitted manuscripts must represent original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Manuscripts are submitted in PDF format and may not exceed ten single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages, including figures, tables, and references. Please refer to http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template for templates and complete formatting instructions.
Manuscripts are submitted via the Easychair Conference Management System: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ucc2020

All manuscripts will be reviewed and judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, rigour in analysis, quality of results, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference attendees.
The conference proceedings will be published by the ACM and made available online via the ACM Digital Library and IEEE Digital Library.

Awards and Special Issues

A selection commission chaired by the UCC2020 technical programme committee will select and acknowledge the best paper and the best student paper to receive an award during the conference.

Authors of highly rated papers from UCC2020 will be invited to submit an extended version to special issues of prestigious journals. Details will be announced soon.
