Call For Papers


“A computing Cloud is a set of network enabled services, providing scalable, QoS guaranteed, normally personalized, inexpensive computing infrastructures on demand, which could be accessed in a simple and pervasive way”. Conceptually, users acquire computing platforms or IT infrastructures from computing Clouds and then run their applications inside. Therefore, computing Clouds render users with services to access hardware, software and data resources, thereafter an integrated computing platform as a service, in a transparent way. Users thus can on-demand subscribe to their favorite computing infrastructures with requirements of hardware configuration, software installation and data access demands. The Cloud computing distinguishes itself from other computing paradigms, like Grid computing, Global computing, Internet Computing in the following aspects: user-centric interfaces, on-demand service, QoS guaranteed offer, autonomous system organization, scalability and flexible services.

This book is expected to serve as an important reference and a milestone for research on Cloud computing since 2007, when the term of “Cloud computing” was coined. We solicit survey & review papers, original research, technical implementation, and case studies in various fileds of Cloud computing.
