Call For Papers

*** This workshop was cancelled due to a lack of submissions.

This is the initial call for papers for The Workshop on Policies for
Configuring and Operating Management Services in a Cloud (PCOMSC 2012)

which is being held in association with The 12th IEEE/ACM
International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing (CCGrid 2012)

May 13-16, 2012, Ottawa, Canada


Cloud computing envisions that services, platforms and computing
resources can be provided, on-demand, in a self-service fashion by a
set of cooperating and/or competing providers to clients over the
Internet. The emergence of cloud computing stems from the
availability of numerous, massive data centers, improvements in
virtualization technologies and the availability and abundance of high
speed networks. Challenges for the cloud computing provider include
the following: (i) Manage resources allocated to clients based on
client requirements; and (ii) Manage the allocation of resources among
clients. This requires that management software be given as inputs
both the client management requirements and the provider management
requirements in order to make effective decisions. This can be done
through the use of policies. For large-scale systems, it must be
possible to take policies in machine-readable form and use these
policies to configure management services. There are many challenges
e.g., policy conflict (detection, avoidance,resolution), mapping
process. Furthermore, policies are needed to support multiple
management dimensions including security, privacy, pricing,
performance, availability, resilience, energy, etc. This workshop
will address challenges with realizing operational policies in a
cloud-based system.


Researchers interested in cloud computing, adaptive / autonomic
systems, and policy-based management will find this an interesting
workshop. It impacts and involves the following suggested topics:

* Autonomic Computing
* Software Engineering for Cloud Computing
* Service Level Agreements and Scheduling
* Tools and Environments
* Cloud Integration
* Content Distribution Networks
* Peer-2-Peer Technologies
* Workflow Tools and Applications
* Programming Models
* Energy Management in Data Centers
* Cloud Computing


PCOMSC 2012 invites the submission of original, unpublished research
(including position papers) that is not currently under review
elsewhere to be submitted electronically in PDF format to EasyChair
( by the
submission deadline (i.e., Monday, January 9, 2012). The submitted
manuscript must be structured as a technical paper in accordance with
IEEE format for conference proceedings and be no more than six letter
size (8.5 X 11) pages in length. Please be aware that this page limit
includes all figures, tables and references. The official language of
this meeting is English. Papers that do not meet the formatting
guidelines, structure and/or that are submitted after the deadline
will be ignored (at the discretion of the workshop chairs). Further,
should it be deemed appropriate (e.g., in the case of plagiarism)
further sanction(s) may be applied (e.g., notification of the head of
the submitter's institution and/or the conference sponsors).
Submissions will be judged on their veracity, uniqueness, technical
merit, presentation and perceived alignment with the workshop's
themes. For each accepted paper, at least one author must attend the
workshop (failure to attend will result in the paper being removed
from the proceedings). All workshop participants must pay the
conference fee. The workshop proceedings will be published by the IEEE
Computer Society Press, USA in the same volume as the main conference
