Present CFP : 2016

9th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC 2016)
December 6-9, 2016 - Tongji University - Shanghai, China - Call for Papers
Website: http://computing.derby.ac.uk/ucc2016/

Context and Scope:

Cloud Computing delivers computational resources ondemand as services
that are commoditized and delivered comfortably analogous to traditional
utilities such as electricity, gas, water and telephony. Cloud service
offerings for compute, storage and communication resources as well as
for hosted software and data are growing at a tremendous rate. It is
essential to understand how to effectively transform these services into
Utilities that provide value to both users and providers. There is also
increasing interest from commercial providers to offer business and
revenue models around the services they offer. Understanding how these
models could be used to provide utility for users, intermediary brokers
(aggregators) and providers is also an area of active research. UCC is
the premier IEEE/ACM conference covering all areas related to Cloud
Computing as a Utility and provides an international forum for leading
researchers and practitioners in this important and growing field. UCC
2016, to be held in Shanghai, reflects the need to bring academics and
industrial researchers together to discuss how to improve existing
services and how to bring new applications into the cloud.

This will be the 9th UCC in a successful conference series of
community-driven events. Previous events were held in Shanghai, China
(Cloud 2009), Melbourne, Australia (Cloud 2010 & UCC 2011), Chennai,
India (UCC 2010), Chicago, USA (UCC 2012), Dresden, Germany (UCC 2013),
London, UK (UCC 2014), and Limassol, Cyprus (UCC 2015).

UCC 2016 will have a co-located 3rd International Conference on Big
Data Science, Engineering and Applications (BDSEA 2016).

CALL FOR PAPERS

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research manuscripts
that demonstrate current research in all areas of Cloud and Utility
computing including design and analysis of distributed and centralized
Cloud systems, data centre design and engineering, economic and market
models for cloud systems, revenue and business models and their
applications in scientific and commercial deployments.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

• Principles and theoretical foundations of Utility Computing, including
pricing and service models
• Policy languages and programming models, such as cloud-native and
cloud-enabled applications
• Utility-driven models and mechanisms for Cloud federations
• Autonomic techniques for Cloud applications
• Utility-/comfort-driven platforms for Clouds
• Architectural models to achieve Utility in Clouds
• Designs and deployment models for Clouds: private, public, hybrid,
federated, aggregated
• Cloud Computing middleware, stacks, tools, delivery networks and
services at all layers (XaaS)
• Virtualization technologies and other enablers
• Economic models and scenarios of use
• Scalability and resource management: brokering, scheduling, capacity
planning, parallelism and elasticity, as well as marketplaces
• Cloud management: autonomic, adaptive, self-*, SLAs, performance
models and monitoring
• Applications: games, social networks, scientific computing (e-science)
and business, as well as large- scale foundations for Big Data and
analytics
• Mobile and energy-efficient use of Clouds
• Beyond technology: Cloud business and legal implications, such as
security, privacy, trust and jurisdiction especially in Utility
contexts

Important Dates:

Workshop proposals due: 08 May, 2016
Tutorial proposals due: 03 July, 2016

Paper submissions due: 03 July, 2016
Notification of acceptance: 21 August, 2016
Camera ready papers due: 21 September, 2016
Early registration deadline: 21 September, 2016

Paper Submission:

Submitted manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may
not exceed ten (10) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point
size font on 8.5x11 inch pages (IEEE conference style), including
figures, tables, and references. Borderline papers may be accepted as
short papers but all submissions must be full papers. The proceedings
will be published by the IEEE Computer Society, USA, and will be made
available online through the IEEE Digital Library, as well as through
the ACM Digital Library.

Electronic submissions must be in the form of a readable PDF file.
Manuscripts must be received in EasyChair by July 03, 2016. All
manuscripts will be reviewed by the Program Committee and evaluated on
originality, relevance of the problem to the conference theme, technical
strength, rigour in analysis, quality of results, and organization and
clarity of presentation of the paper. Submitted papers must represent
original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any
other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines will
be rejected without review and further action may be taken, including
(but not limited to) notifications sent to the heads of the institutions
of the authors. Further details on the publication and registration
regulations are published on the UCC website and need to be followed.

At least one author of each paper must be registered for the conference
in order for the paper to be published in the proceedings. There is NO
student rate for the author who is responsible for registration for
his/her published paper. If you have more than one accepted paper, you
have to register for each one individually. There is no discount if you
have two or more papers accepted. Presentation of an accepted paper at
the conference is a requirement of publication. Any paper that is not
presented at the conference will not be included in IEEE Xplore.

Submissions: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ucc2016

Awards and Special Issues:

One or more best paper awards will be given for outstanding contributed
papers. Selected papers from the conference will be invited to submit
an extended version to reputable journals for special issues. Papers
will be selected based on their reviewers’ scores and appropriateness to
the journal’s theme. All extended versions will undergo reviews and must
represent original unpublished research work. Further details will be
made available at the conference webpage.
