Call for Papers

Scope

Prospective authors are invited to submit high quality papers reporting results on activities related to 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. Cloud computing technology has been widely applied, in areas such as manufacturers, health-care, intelligent transportation systems, e-government, and finance industry. 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 computing, 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 deliver provisions to best guarantee service delivery for clients and at the same time to optimise the resources efficiency of providers. Examples of provisions include, but are not limited to, elasticity through up/down scaling of resources to track workload behaviour, 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 2018 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.
