Call For Papers

9th International Workshop on Cloud and Edge Computing, and Applications Management (CloudAM 2020)
In conjunction with the 13th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC 2020)
December 7-10, 2020
Leicester, UK

=== Covid19 Statement ===

Due to the rapidly changing Covid-19 situation globally, both UCC 2020 and BDCAT 2020 will take place on-line. All papers in the main track and the workshops will be delivered on-line. The registration fees have been adapted to reflect this change. All peer-reviewed accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published by IEEE.

### Background ###
Cloud computing, virtualization and virtual (eScience) applications have been generating substantial interest in the community, and it is anticipated that this interest will keep expanding with the emergence of edge computing infrastructures, such as Fog Computing and Mobile Cloud Computing. Cloud and edge infrastructures can work together to fulfill requirements from a variety of applications, composing the so-called Computing Continuum from the cloud to the edge. Clouds must provide appropriate levels of performance to large groups of diverse users, and those clouds are accessed through virtualized wide area networks, where edge/fog devices can act as a first layer of computing capacity closer to the users. Management systems are essential for that and thereby for the future success of the fog-cloud hierarchy. New systems, methods, and approaches for cloud and edge computing, virtualization and (eScience) applications management are to be discussed at this workshop.

### Topics ###
For the CloudAM 2020 workshop, researchers from Cloud/Fog/Edge and (eScience) Applications communities are encouraged to submit and present original work to be considered for publication. Overall topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Cloud and fog computing environments
- Cloud and fog service orchestration
- Cloud and fog APIs
- Cloud and fog data management
- Cloud and fog scalable monitoring
- Cloud and fog load balancing
- Multi-cloud/Inter-clouds
- Customer cloud management
- Managing data centers
- Management as a service
- Management of virtual slices
- *aaS Management
- Cloud and fog scheduling
- Hybrid clouds
- Fog and Edge computing
- Cloud surveys and taxonomies
- Social clouds
- Business models for cloud and fog computing.
- Managing cloud services
- Management of virtualized hardware resources
- Network-specific mechanisms for optimized cloud access
- Performance modeling & evaluation
- QoS/QoE management in the cloud
- Security and privacy in the cloud-edge hierarchy
- Management tools for infrastructure virtualization
- Automated resource slicing
- Policy driven service/resource life-cycle management
- Applications and services enabled by virtualized infrastructure
- Optimization of data center and workload energy consumption
- Green cloud computing
- Scientific workflows on clouds
- Mobile clouds and mobile edge computing
- Big data / complex event processing in the cloud-edge hierarchy
- Autonomic cloud computing
- Cloud Continuum – IoT/Smart Cities integration

### Submissions ###
The CloudAM workshop invites authors to submit original and unpublished work. Papers must be written in English and not exceed 6 pages in IEEE format. Additional pages might be purchased upon the approval of the proceedings chair. Submission requires the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper at the workshop. Papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.
Papers are to be submitted electronically at
