CALL FOR PAPERS
Cloud Computing, which is envisioned to change the IT landscape, is consumer/delivery model where IT capabilities are offered as services billed based on usage. Examples of cloud services include, but are not limited to, IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service), PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) and SaaS (Software-as-a-Service). The underlying cloud architecture includes a pool of virtualized compute, storage and networking resources that can be aggregated and launched as platforms to run workloads and satisfy their Service-Level Agreement (SLA). Cloud architectures also include provisions to best guarantee service delivery for clients and at the same time optimize efficiency of resources of providers. Examples of provisions include, but are not limited to, elasticity through up/down scaling of resources to track workload behavior, extensive monitoring, failure mitigation, and energy optimizations. The two main technologies enabling clouds are: (i) Virtualization, the foundation of clouds; and (ii) manageability (autonomics), the command and control of clouds. CloudComp is intended to bring together researchers, developers, and industry professionals to discuss recent advances and experiences in clouds, cloud computing and related ecosystems and business support. The conference also aims at presenting the recent advances, experiences and results obtained in the wider area of cloud computing, giving users and researchers equally a chance to gain better insight into the capabilities and limitations of current cloud systems.
CloudComp will offer a chance to cloud providers to promote and display their current systems. To that end, papers are solicited from all cloud related areas, including, but not limited to:
-Cloud architectures & provisions to optimize providers' environments while guaranteeing clients' SLAs
-Programming models, applications and middleware suitable for dynamic cloud environments
-End-to-end techniques for autonomic management of cloud resources including monitoring, asset management, process automation and others
-Cloud delivery models, models' optimizations and associated architectural changes
-Cloud economic and billing models
-Green ICT and Clouds - theory, practice and experiences
-Cloud security, privacy and compliance challenges
-Toolkits, frameworks and processes to enable clouds and allow seamless transitions from traditional IT environments to clouds
-Experiences with existing cloud infrastructure, services and uses
-Novel human interfaces and browsers for accessing clouds
-Interaction of mobile computing, mCommerce and Clouds
-Standardisation activity in Clouds - proposals and experiences
-Experiences on clouds in various vertical sectors (e.g., eScience and industry), where the concept worked/didnotwork.
The CloudComp 2012 conference caters for a limited number of workshops on dedicated session topics. Such topics may be, but are not limited to
- Cloud Security
- Cloud Programming models
- High Performance Clouds
- New Cloud Business Models
A proposal to organise a workshop should include the following information: (1) the title of the workshop, (2) name, affiliation and contact details of the organiser, (3) an abstract of no more than one page describing the aims of the workshop and the motivation for holding it and participating to it (target audience), (4) a workshop chair and a tentative list of participants / speakers, (5) the expected duration of the workshop. Workshop sessions are expected to last 90-120 minutes, but a workshop may comprise multiple sessions.
For submission instructions, please check the conference website.
Accepted papers will be published in the CloudComp Conference Proceedings and by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST). The proceedings will be available both in book form and via the SpringerLink digital library, which is one of the largest digital libraries online and covers a variety of scientific disciplines. LNICST volumes are submitted for inclusion to leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ACM Digital Library, ISI Proceedings, EI Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus and Zentralblatt Math, as well as EU Digital Library (EUDL)... but we don't stop at supporting the traditional indexing services: to increase attention and probability of citation of your article in Web 2.0, EAI supports innovative web tools that enable researchers to better share, classify and disseminate articles via the many different social bookmarking and networking services. As an example of this, learn about UCount, a community-based approach for measuring scientific reputation. We are keen to have your feedback on these issues - your experience with the new tools and opportunities we are providing, and your thoughts and ideas for what additional features you would like to see.
Papers should be no more than 10000 words or 10 pages in length. Submissions will be reviewed anonymously by at least 3 reviewers.
Papers will be judged on originality, correctness, clarity and relevance. Submitted papers must be original work, and may not be under consideration for another conference or journal. Submission of the paper implies agreement of the author(s) to attend the conference and present the paper if accepted Complete formatting and submission instructions for papers and workshops proposals can be found on the conference web site http://cloudcomp.eu/2012/show/initial-submission
Workshops proposals deadline: 30th April, 2013
Paper submission due: 30th May, 2013
Notification of acceptance: 30th July, 2013
Camera-ready deadline: 15th August, 2013
