Call For Papers

Cloud Computing is becoming a reality for large enterprises as it promises benefits such as reduced costs, on-demand availability of services and use of services and infrastructures as and when required. Reports suggest that Enterprises are moving beyond experimentation and beginning to develop management software to deal with scaled Cloud environments and the enterprise-level policies for dealing with Public and Hybrid Clouds. However, there are also many challenges that hinder the full realization of the potential that Cloud infrastructures offer. Faced with this, an Enterprise Cloud Architect needs to be able to correctly relate the enterprise information system architectures to the Cloud characteristics of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). It is important that the inherent issues, limitations and barriers to efficient development and deployment of Cloud Infrastructures are well understood so that Enterprise can use the Cloud infrastructures and capabilities to align and advance their IT strategies with business missions more effectively.

The proposed workshop aims to present researched articles to describe and explore Enterprise Cloud Computing principles, infrastructures, technologies, methodologies and deployment models. It also aims to investigate the issues inherent in Cloud approaches and limitations with respect to frameworks, methodologies and technologies. A secondary objective is to explore synergies between Service Oriented Architectures, Grid Computing Frameworks and Enterprise Cloud Computing and discuss these with a view to suggesting recommendations and best practices for Enterprise Architects and business managers.

We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.


Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

* Architectures for enterprise clouds
* Principles, concepts and methodologies of enterprise cloud computing
* Tools, technologies, methodologies and frameworks for enterprise cloud computing
* Enterprise IS architectures such as application, information and technology
* Synergies between SOA, Grid Computing and Cloud Infrastructures
* Quality of Service (QoS) models
* 'Elastic' and on-demand allocation and management of resources to meet business needs
* Benefits, issues and limitations of enterprise clouds
* Security, data integrity, legal and governance issues for enterprise clouds
* Management, monitoring an governance issues
* Portability of architectures, applications and data between cloud providers
* Reliability and maintenance of cloud-based business architectures
* Architectures for Software as a Service, Platform as a Service and Infrastructure as a * Service
* Network architecture using Storage Clouds
* Experience reports with designing, building and using Cloud infrastructure
* Novel application architectures, best practices, case studies and surveys
