Call For Papers

The first IEEE International Conference on Cloud Networking (IEEE CloudNet 2012) will be held in Paris, France, in November 2012.
Cloud Networking has emerged as a promising direction for cost-efficient and reliable service
delivery across data communication networks. The dynamic location of service facilities and the
virtualization of hardware and software elements are stressing the communication network and
protocols, especially when data-centers are interconnected through the Internet. Although the
"computing" aspects of Cloud technologies have been largely investigated, lower attention has
been devoted to the "networking" and communications aspects. The 2012 IEEE Int. Conference on Cloud Networking (IEEE CloudNet 2012)
precisely addresses these aspects.

Conference topics include (but are not limited to):

- Data Center Network Management, Reliability, Optimization
- Distributed Data Center Architectures
- Internet Routing of Cloud data
- Ethernet Routing: TRILL, Shortest Path Bridging, L2LSP, OpenFlow
- Virtual Ethernet Bridging, Data Center Bridging
- Cloud Traffic Characterization and Measurements
- Intra-Cloud and Inter-Cloud Networking
- Cloud Traffic Engineering and Control-Plane Architectures
- Security, Privacy, Confidentiality in Cloud networking
- Network on the fly, Virtual Control, Virtual Radio, Isolation
- Virtualization of Wireless Equipment
- Green Cloud Networking
- Unified User and Machine Mobility Management
- Mobile Cloud Networking, Follow-Me-Cloud
- Storage Area Networks, Optical Interconnect, Fiber Channel
- Content and Service Distribution

Supporting IEEE Communications Society Technical Committees:

- Cloud Communications and Networking Ad-Hoc TC
- Communications Software TC (TCCS)
- Computer Communications TC (TCCC)
- Green Communications & Computing Technical SubCommittee (TSCGCC)
- Information Infrastructure and Networking (TCIIN)
- Internet TC (ITC)
- Network Operations and Management TC (CNOM)
