IJCAC 2011 : International Journal of Cloud Applications and Computing: Call for Papers, Editors and Special (Invited) Issues
Call For Papers
It is our pleasure to invite you to submit Papers, Invited (Special) Issue proposal to the International Journal of Cloud Applications and Computing (IJCAC). IJCAC focuses on practical applications and the theoretical foundations of Cloud Computing, through presentation of the most up-to-date advances and new directions of research in the field from various scholarly, professional, and practitioner perspectives. An interdisciplinary look at Cloud Computing, including engineering and business aspects, IJCAC covers and encourages high-quality research exposition on such topics as virtualization technology, utility computing, SaaS, and Grid Computing, as well as web services, SOA, Web 2.0, and Services Computing.
Call for Technical Editors:
We courteously invite you as a member in the editorial board f IJCAC. We will continue to strengthen IJCAC as a helpful research source for scholars, researchers and students. Please submit your short bio, photo, background (Educations, Researches), and some information to review via email to Dr. Shadi Aljawarneh "firstname.lastname@example.org". We look forward to your constant support and initiative in improving the quality of IJCAC.
Duties of editor in IJCAC:
* Review some papers in your research interests.
* Promotion of IJCAC in your colleagues.
* Promotion of IJCAC in your area of influence.
* Gather or Recommend high quality papers.
Topics to be discussed in this journal include (but are not limited to) the following:
Cloud based industry applications, such as cloud based search, cloud based e-business and mobile commerce, wireless cloud
Cloud middleware and toolkits
Cloud reference architectures and service models
Cloud computing economics including ROI, TCO, purchasing models, pricing models of cloud
