Call For Papers

The 2012 International Workshop on
Cloud and Grid Interoperability (Cloud&Grid 2012) (TBA)

Gwangju, Korea, 6-8 September 2012

In conjunction with NPC-12

"Cloud" is a common metaphor for an Internet accessible infrastructure, hiding most of the implementation and deployment details in the field of ICT. Cloud Computing is becoming a scalable services delivery and consumption platform. The backbone behind Cloud Computing includes Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Virtualization of hardware and software.
The goal of Cloud Computing is to share resources among the cloud service consumers, cloud partners and cloud vendors in the cloud value chain. Cloud computing has been envisaged to be one of the main stream powering technologies of future ICT and next generation network.
The Cloud&Grid 2012 focus on Interoperability issues of grid and computing domain. It mainly focus on designing interoperable components, experiences and lessons learnt from developing interoperable services in the cloud and grid environment. This workshop aims at providing a forum to bring together researchers for sharing and exchanging cloud and Grid computing related research, technologies, experience, and lessons for building clouds of interoperability and coordination capabilities and services.
We believe this workshop will be a place to help the research community to define their novel ideas in the current state of grid-cloud interoperability issues. In addition the workshop will help to define the future goals and services that cloud needs to support in various intensive commercial and enterprise application

Instructions for papers in the Springer's CCIS(Note that the paper format of CCIS is the same as that of LNCS)
- Prepare your paper in the exact format as the sample paper for CCIS. Failure to do so may result in the exclusion of your paper from the proceedings. Please read the authors' instructions carefully before preparing your papers.
- Springer accepts both Microsoft Word and LaTex format in the Lecture Note Series. However, FTRA does not accept the use of LaTex. Therefore, you should use the Microsoft Word instead of using LaTex (The paper will be excluded from the proceeding if you use LaTex). Springer provides the relevant templates and sample files for both PC ( and Mac (sv-lncs) environments.
- Please download ( If you need more help on preparing your papers, please visit Springer's LNCS web page (
