Call For Papers

First International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC 2010)
Dec. 14-16, 2010, Chennai, India

Held In Cooperation with:
IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Scalable Computing

Hosted/Supported by:

* Cloud Computing and Distributed Systems (CLOUDS) Laboratory,
The University of Melbourne, Australia
* Anna University Chennai, India
* Vienna University of Technology, Austria
* Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, USA
* Manjrasoft Pty Ltd, Melbourne, Australia
* Swinburne University of Technology, Australia



Computing is being transformed to a model consisting of services that
are commoditized and delivered in a manner similar to traditional
utilities such as water, electricity, gas, and telephony. In such a
model, users access services based on their requirements without regard
to where the services are hosted or how they are delivered. Several
computing paradigms have promised to deliver this utility computing
vision and these include Grid computing, and more recently Cloud computing.

Cloud computing has recently emerged as one of the buzzwords in the ICT
industry. Several IT vendors are promising to offer storage,
application and computation hosting services, and provide coverage in
several continents, offering Service-Level Agreements (SLA) backed
performance and uptime promises for their services. While these
"clouds" are the natural evolution of traditional clusters and data
centres, they are distinguished by following a "utility" pricing model
where customers are charged based on their utilisation of computational
resources, storage and transfer of data. These emerging services have
reduced the cost of computation, application hosting and content
storage and delivery by several orders of magnitude, however there is
significant complexity involved in ensuring applications, services and
data can scale when needed to ensure consistent and reliable operation
under peak loads.

To provide a dedicated forum for sharing recent R&D advances and
industrial innovations in "Utility Computing" area, we have initiated
this new conference series "International Conference on Utility and
Cloud Computing". This conference series has emerged out of the past two
successful Cloud computing symposiums (Cloud 2009 held in Shanghai,
China; and Cloud 2010 held in Melbourne, Australia) and focuses on both
principles of "Utility computing" and its practical realisation in
industry in different forms including Cloud Computing.

Conference Scope:

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Principles of Utility Computing
- Architectural Models for Utility Computing
- *aaS: Infrastructure, Platform, Software, Storage as a Service
- Novel architectural models for cloud computing
- Novel applications of cloud computing, including games and social networks
- Novel cloud programming models
- Innovative cloud pricing models
- Innovative cloud service models
- Support for scalable and elastic cloud services
- New parallel / concurrent programming models for cloud computing
- Cloud support for mobile applications and Content Delivery Networks
- Data Security, Privacy, and Jurisdiction in the Cloud
- Portability of applications and data between different cloud providers
- Cloud-related virtualization issues
- Deployment, maintenance, and management of cloud resources and services
- (Multi-)Cloud resource brokering and scheduling
- (Multi-)Cloud capacity planning
- Reliability of applications and services running on the cloud
- Interoperability between different Utility Computing Platforms
including Grids, and Clouds
- Performance monitoring for cloud applications
- Cloud use case studies
- Scientific computing in the cloud
- Business computing in the cloud
- Social computing in the cloud

Best Paper Award:

A best paper award sponsored by Manjrasoft Pty. Ltd, Australia will be
presented to a
paper receiving the highest quality rating from the Program Committee
and external
reviewers. In addition, a special issue in a high quality international
journal will
be organised for selected best papers.


Authors are invited to submit papers electronically. Submitted
manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may not exceed
8 ("eight") letter size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and
using the IEEE format for conference proceedings (print area of 6-1/2
inches (16.51 cm)
wide by 8-7/8 inches (22.51 cm) high, two-column format with columns
3-1/16 inches (7.85 cm)
wide with a 3/8 inch (0.81 cm) space between them, single-spaced
10-point Times fully
justified text). Submissions not conforming to these guidelines may be
returned without
review. Authors should submit the manuscript in PDF format and make sure
that the file will
print on a printer that uses letter size (8.5 x 11) paper. The official
language of the
meeting is English. All manuscripts will be reviewed and will be judged
on correctness,
originality, technical strength, significance, quality of presentation,
and interest and
relevance to the conference attendees.

Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is
not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers
not following these guidelines will be rejected without review and
further action may be taken, including (but not limited to)
notifications sent to the heads of the institutions of the authors and
sponsors of the conference. Submissions received after the due date,
exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be
considered. The proceedings will be published and will be made online
through the IEEE Xplore.

All papers should be submitted online using EasyChair submission system:
