Workshop on
Management of Cloud Systems (MoCS 2011)

June 28th, 2011
Kerkyra (Corfu), Greece

organized in association with the
Fifteenth IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications (ISCC 2011)
Sponsored by (pending approval)
IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Communications Society
Endorsed by the IEEE Technical Committee on
Communications Systems Integration and Modeling (CSIM)

The vision of Cloud computing is becoming a reality thanks to the
recent advances in several significant computer and communications
research areas, spanning from grid/virtualization/utility computing to
Web 2.0 and Service Oriented Computing (SOC). After the initial hype,
at the current stage, several ongoing research efforts are focusing
on the several open management aspects of the Cloud, such as
interoperability, scalability, reliability, power management, and
confidentiality/auditability, with the final goal to make Cloud
technologies and services more mature so to boost and to facilitate
a more widespread industrial uptake of Cloud systems. Despite the
several recent efforts on Cloud systems, it is still unclear whether
current solutions are able to withstand the abrupt and unpredictably
changes imposed by the emergent Cloud application scenarios, where
services and the whole software stacks (from the kernel upward) have
to scale up and down fast by exploiting highly distributed and
heterogeneous virtualized resources.

The ambition and mission of MoCS 2011 is to put on the foreground all
above issues, and to bring together different ongoing research efforts
on the management of Cloud systems. This year, special focus will be
on the challenging management issues related to the delivery of
efficient Green computing solutions over the Cloud.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
* Novel adaptive management solutions for scalable, maintainable,
cost-effective Cloud provision, at all software stack layers;
* New models and paradigms for the management of Cloud services at the
host level and within/between data centres (intra-/inter-domain);
* Analytical and simulation models and tools to measure systems
ability to scale and to achieve relevant energy savings;
* New methods and tools able to identify and enforce optimal trade-
offs between performance, energy consumption, safety, and security;
* Emerging standards for interoperability (resource virtualization,
specific computing interfaces, etc.), also between public and
private Clouds;
* Experimentation testbeds, field trials and empirical evaluations,
and measurement studies.

Important Dates
Submission of research papers due: 28 February 2011
Notification of paper acceptance: 28 March 2011
Submission of camera-ready papers: 13 April 2011
Workshop date: 28 June 2011

Paper submission
Papers should be written in English. Manuscripts should not exceed 6
pages in the IEEE proceedings style, including all figures, tables
and references, and must be submitted by February 28 2011 using EDAS
( Papers meeting these requirements will be
peer-reviewed by at least three independent reviewers, including a TPC
member. Papers must present original and unpublished work and should
not be currently under review by any other conference or journal. To
submit a paper, please follow the instructions on the workshop Web site.

The Workshop Proceedings will be part of the ISCC 2011 Proceedings and
will be available on IEEE Xplore (
