Call For Papers

Privacy and Provenance in the Cloud (PPCloud 2011)

A workshop at the 4th IEEE International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC 2011)
December 5-8, 2011
Melbourne, Australia


Clouds enable customers to reduce startup costs, amortize operating costs and increase the flexibility of their services through the on-demand acquisition of infrastructure and services. While the cloud presents a compelling and generally attractive scenario, understanding the privacy risks and developing efficient and effective solutions are critical for its success. In tension with the need for privacy, is provenance - that is, the need to know who created or is responsible for a piece of data, through whose hands it has passed, who has modified it (or if). Privacy and, more recently, provenance are both current challenges in cloud computing. The balance between the conflicting requirements of privacy and provenance is a significant challenge for future cloud research.

PPCloud 2011 is part of the UCC2011 conference. Please see the UCC conference page for addition details concerning the overall program, dates, location, committees and registration details:

Topics of Interest

The workshop will cover topics related to practical or theoretical aspects of privacy and/or provenance in cloud computing, including but not limited to:

• Privacy in the Cloud
• Cryptographic techniques for preserving privacy
• Real world applications and requirements for privacy
• Provenance of data and services in the cloud.
• Provenance in workflows.
• Cryptographic techniques for establishing provenance
• Legal issues concerning privacy or provenance

Submission Guidelines

• The workshop welcomes submissions from all (but not limited to) members of the Grid, Cluster, Cloud and Security communities.
• At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register early to attend the workshop, and all workshop participants must pay the UCC 2011 workshop registration fee, as well as the conference fee.
• All papers must be submitted electronically and in PDF format. The material presented should be original and not published or under submission elsewhere. Authors should submit full papers of up to 6 pages, following strictly the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscript style (available at, using two-column, single-space format, with 10-point font size. Figures and references must be included in the 6 pages. Additional pages may be purchased (in some circumstances) subject to approval of the proceedings chair.
• All submissions will be subjected to peer review by an international program committee. Each paper will receive at least 3 reviews.
• The publication of the workshop proceedings will be by the IEEE alongside the proceedings of UCC2011.

All papers should be submitted online using EasyChair submission system:
