11th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC 2018)

December 17-20, 2018 – Zurich, Switzerland

Website: http://ucc-conference.org/

UCC ( http://ucc-conference.org/ ) 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 2018, to be held in Zurich, Switzerland, 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.

UCC 2018 will have a co-located 5th International Conference on BigData Computing, Applications and Technologies (BDCAT 2018 (http://bdcat-conference.org/ ), an embedded Cloud Challenge (http://events.cbmi.htw-berlin.de/ucc18-cloudChallenge/ ) along with other satellite events, and a subsequent Serverless Symposium (http://essca2018.servicelaboratory.ch/ ). Do not miss the opportunity for discussing a full week of cloud and big data advances in central Europe at the end of the year!

This will be the 11th UCC along with the 5th BDCAT in a successful conference series of community-driven events. For more information, consult the conference history (http://ucc-conference.org/pages/history-of-ucc-and-bdcat.html ) and the listing of previous awards given (http://ucc-conference.org/pages/ucc-awards.html ) to top papers presented at the conference.

Call for Papers

Authors are invited to submit (http://ucc-conference.org/pages/ucc-2018-call-for-papers.html ) original unpublished research manuscripts that demonstrate current research in all areas of Cloud and Utility as well as Big Data computing, including design and analysis of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.

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. The proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society and will be made available online through the IEEE Digital Library, as well as through the ACM Digital Library.

Authors should submit the manuscript in PDF format. All manuscripts will be reviewed and will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, rigour in analysis, quality of results, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference attendees. Papers conforming to the above guidelines can be submitted through the
UCC 2018 paper submission system. (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ucc2018 )

Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Further details on the publication instructions and registration information will be published on the UCC website.

We invite you to visit the Call for Papers page (http://ucc-conference.org/pages/ucc-2018-call-for-papers.html ) for
more information.

Call for Workshop Proposals Submission

Proposals for workshops should be submitted in PDF format, must exceed 2 pages in length and contain the following information.

* Title and brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the goals and the technical issues that will be the focus of the workshop.
* A brief description of why and to whom the workshop is of interest.
* A list of related workshops or similar events held in the last 3 years, or to be held in 2018.
* The names and contact information (web page, email address) of the proposed technical program committee. This committee should consist of at least 10 people knowledgeable about the technical issues to be addressed and preferably not more than two members of the same institution. Ideally, there should also be two organizers from distinct institutions.
* A description of the qualifications of the organizers (who would be the Workshop Chairs) with respect to organizing this workshop. This can include papers published in the proposed topic area, previous workshop organization, and other relevant information.

We invite you to visit the Call for Workshops page (http://ucc-conference.org/pages/call-for-workshops.html ) for more information about workshop chair responsibilities and additional details concerning the workshop proposals submission process.
