Software Reuse in the Emerging Cloud Computing Era
A book edited by Prof. Hongji Yang and Dr. Xiaodong Liu

To be published by IGI Global:

With the rapid development of computing hardware, high-speed network, web programming, distributed and parallel computing, and other technologies, cloud computing has recently emerged as a commercial reality. Technically, cloud computing is still to mature and there are still many challenges, including fundamental models, infrastructures and architectures, provision of services and development of applications.

Software reuse has been a major drive for the successful development of software systems for decades and has resulted in tremendous savings in costs and time. Over time, new reuse requirements keep initiating new techniques and approaches for the up to date implementation of the concept, from libraries of reusable assets to product lines, to generative methods. Reusable assets have always been the core of successful reuse, ranging from component to design pattern, and recently to software service.

One of the important aspects for Cloud computing to develop rapidly is software asset reuse, i.e. to reuse assts that are available to computing systems presently. Asset reuse can be in the following groups: Reuse of Computing Models, Reuse of Architecture and Infrastructure, Reuse of Platforms and Services, Reuse of Platforms and Services.

In answering the above challenges, the research and industry communities have been actively creating new approaches and tools on the development, specification, retrieval, reuse and evolution of reusable assets. It is worthy to systematically collect such new approaches and resultant tools to promote their acceptance, foster further developments, and speed up their commercialization. This handbook of research will be the first book that serves the above purposes. It will act as an effective means to summarize the current state of art and knowledge in this area, guide researchers and foster new advances.

Objective of the Book
This book will aim to provide relevant theoretical frameworks and latest empirical research findings in the area. It will help to clarify the present fast-advancing and somewhat confusing literature of the current state of art and knowledge in the areas of the development and reuse of reusable assets in the context of the above emerging software applications. The book will facilitate the exchange and evolution of the above advances in software reuse and software engineering among multiple disciplines, research, industry and user communities.

Target Audience
The target audience of this book will be composed of professionals and researchers working in the field of software engineering in various disciplines, for example, software engineering, cloud computing, software reuse, distributed systems, project management, information systems, supply chain management, social network, and ICT economy. Moreover, the book will provide insights and support executives concerned with the management and economy of information system development, maintenance and evolution in different types of work communities and environments.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
Part 1 Reuse Assets
• Components & Frameworks
• Services
• Design Patterns
Part 2 Reuse of Computing Models
• Computing and programming models
• Emerging business and economics models
• Fault-tolerance, reliability and consistency models
• Trustworthiness, privacy and security models
• Models for evolution and migration of technology/applications in cloud environment
Part 3 Reuse of Architecture and Infrastructure
• Cloud operating systems
• Cloud and grid computing
• Inter-clouds, internal clouds and mobile clouds
• Storage clouds and cloud databases
Part 4 Reuse of Platforms and Services
• Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) and Hardware as a Service (HaaS)
• Self-configuration and adaptation of cloud platforms
• Service search engines and semantic web
• Design tools for cloud computing
• Ubiquitous computing
• Social networking
• Quality of cloud services
Part 5 Reuse in Applications
• Data-incentive application
• High performance computing applications
• Automation applications in cloud computing
• Scalable analytics
• Data-warehousing
• E-Commerce
• Novel applications
• Reuse case studies

Prospective authors are encouraged to contribute state of the art surveys, as well as in-depth discussions, on the engineering approaches, tools, best practice, and new directions.

Submission Procedure
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before April 16, 2010, a 2-3 page chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission and concerns of his or her proposed chapter. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by May 10, 2010 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by August 31, 2010. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project.

This book is scheduled to be published by IGI Global (formerly Idea Group Inc.), publisher of the “Information Science Reference” (formerly Idea Group Reference), “Medical Information Science Reference,” “Business Science Reference,” and “Engineering Science Reference” imprints. For additional information regarding the publisher, please visit This publication is anticipated to be released in 2011.
