Call for Papers

Scope

As a disruptive technology, cloud computing has sparked huge interest in both IT industry and academic research communities. Cloud computing provisions promising scalable IT infrastructure resources like massive computation, communication and storage resources and services to support various processing of big data applications without major investment in infrastructure up front. Recently, IT giants such as Amazon, Google, IBM and Microsoft have invested huge sums of money in building up their public cloud platforms and services, e.g., Amazon’s Web Services. Technically, cloud computing can be regarded as an ingenious combination of a series of developed or developing ideas and technologies, establishing a novel business model by offering IT services using economies of scale. The core technologies that cloud computing principally built on include web service technologies and standards, virtualization, novel distributed programming models like MapReduce, and cryptography. Nowadays, cloud platforms host a large number of applications in the areas such as manufacturing, healthcare, intelligent transportation systems, e-government, e-commerce and finance, etc.. Furthermore, cloud computing has been extended to a larger scale with the development of edge/fog computing and Internet of Things, and together become a comprehensive computing infrastructure ecosystem for most if not all applications, profoundly changing the IT landscape.

CloudComp 2019 is intended to bring together researchers, developers, and industry professionals to discuss recent advances and experiences in cloud computing, the related ecosystems, applications and business supports. The conference also aims at presenting the recent advances, experiences and results obtained in a wider area of cloud computing, giving users and researchers equally a chance to gain better insight on the capabilities, limitations and developing trends of current cloud computing. Prospective authors are invited to submit high quality paper reporting their original research results and activities related to these areas.
