Call For Papers


First International workshop on Management and Security technologies for Cloud Computing 2012 (ManSec-CC 2012)

December 3-7, 2012, Disneyland Hotel, Anaheim, California, USA
(In conjunction with the 2012 IEEE GlobeCom)

Scope and Motivation:
The last five years Cloud Computing (CC) has generated increasing interest from both industry and academia.
The CC, considered a natural evolution of distributed computing and of the widespread adaption of virtualization and SOA, aims to provide as services IT-related capabilities and resources, via the Internet and on-demand, hiding from the resource consumer the underlying technology. However, this new paradigm comes with new challenges and several open issues must be resolved in order to be largely adopted. Ensuring security and quality of service, reliability and accountability, improving large system operation and maintenance are main challenges for this new model. As a result, Security and Management appear as two ecosystems of considerable importance for the CC paradigm, which will further benefit from research and the exploitation of potential synergies. For that reason, the ManSec-CC 2012 workshop aims to provide a central forum where researchers and practitioners from security and management domains of cloud-centric and outsourced computing, will converge and deal with the challenges of the CC paradigm.

-Access Control Management
