Cloud Computing is the latest model of computing in which the computing resources and data are held in big data centers remotely and are accessible over the Internet from anywhere, as if the services are located in the “Cloud”. We are catapulted into this nebulous state by the powerful convergence of widespread broadband access, the global deployment of mobile devices enabling near-constant connectivity and hundreds of innovations that have made data centers much easier to build and operate.
IEEE has recently launched its new Cloud Computing Initiative (CCI) to stimulate the innovation and dissemination of Cloud Computing technologies and applications. This initiative will include a wide range of conferences, publications, standards, and test-bed activities for the technical communities worldwide. This is one of the major events that are held in Asia, Europe, Latin America, and USA. The effort is kicking off with the introduction of two new standards development projects, IEEE P2301™, Draft Guide for Cloud Portability and Interoperability Profiles, and IEEE P2302™, Draft Standard for Intercloud Interoperability and Federation.
The Cloud Computing Congress is a stimulating forum for government agencies, service providers, end-users, IT analysts and information security experts to debate on the Cloud computing landscape, benefits and challenges for research, enterprise, and government with practical user scenarios, success stories from the R&D landscape. The Congress will include invited keynotes and panels by eminent leaders in cloud computing as well as presentations of peer-reviewed papers.
