The 10th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing
Technology and Science (CloudCom 2018)

Hilton Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus, 10-13 December, 2018

CloudCom is the premier conference on Cloud Computing worldwide,
attracting researchers, developers, users, students and practitioners from
the fields of big data, systems architecture, services research, virtualization,
security and privacy, high performance computing, always with an emphasis
on how to build cloud computing platforms with real impact. The conference
is co-sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE),
is steered by the Cloud Computing Association, and draws on the excellence
of its world-class Program Committee and its participants. CloudCom 2018
will be held in Nicosia, Cyprus between 10-13 December, 2018.

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference
with proceedings. Authors must submit their papers by the deadline indicated
below, using the EasyChair submission system: .

Only PDF files will be accepted. Manuscripts need to be prepared according to
the IEEE CS format (
All regular paper submissions should be written in English with a maximum
paper length of 8 pages. All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least
three experts.

Accepted papers must be presented at the conference. At least one author of
each accepted paper must register to the conference, by the early date
indicated by the organizers, and present the paper.

The conference proceedings of CloudCom 2018 will be published by IEEE
Conference Publishing Service with ISBN and ISSN, and submitted to IEEE
Xplore and indexing services such as Ei Compendex. Distinguished papers
will be recommended for fast-track publication in the IEEE Transactions on
Cloud Computing or invited to be included within a number of special issues
in prestigious international journals.
