Call For Papers

Cloud Computing has become a scalable service consumption and delivery platform in the modern IT infrastructure. The technical foundations of Cloud Computing include the "as-a-Service" usage model, Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Virtualization of hardware and software. The goal of Cloud Computing is to consolidate infrastructure, and share resources among the cloud service consumers, cloud partners, and cloud vendors in the cloud value chain. The resource sharing at various levels results in various cloud offerings such as infrastructure clouds (e.g., IaaS, IT infrastructure management), software clouds (e.g., SaaS and PaaS focusing on middleware as a service, or traditional CRM as a service), application clouds (e.g., Application as a Service, UML modeling tools as a service, social network as a service), and business clouds (e.g., business process as a service). Furthermore, cloud-bursting and cloud-bridging enables the on-demand scale out as well as dynamic federation of clouds in response to changing IT requirements.

CLOUD 2012 invites authors to submit original papers that have not been previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Contributions addressing all areas related to cloud computing technology, systems, applications and business innovations are solicited.

Topic of Interests:

Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Infrastructure-as-a-Service Clouds
- Software-as-a-Service Clouds
- Application-as-a-Service Clouds
- Business Clouds
- Service-Oriented Architecture and Cloud Computing
- Cloud Federation and Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure
- Cloud-bridging and Cloud-bursting
- Virtualization of Hardware Resources
- Virtualization of Software Resources
- Programming Models and Systems/Tools
- Cloud Computing Consulting Methods
- Design Tool for Cloud Computing
- Economic and Business Models for Cloud Computing
- Energy Efficiency and Clouds
- Monitoring, Management and Maintenance of Clouds
- Performance Modeling and Management
- Cloud Computing Architectures
- Innovative Cloud Applications and Experiences
- Security and Privacy in Clouds
- Business Process and Workflow Management in Clouds

The CLOUD 2012 tracks seek original, UNPUBLISHED research papers reporting substantive new work in various aspects of cloud computing. Research track papers MUST clearly indicate their contributions to the field of cloud-oriented services and properly cite related work in the field, such as those published in the proceedings of ICWS, SCC, CLOUD, SERVICES, APSCC, ECOWS, and related journals including TSC, JWSR, and IJBPIM.

All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 program committee members. Accepted and presented papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Extended versions of selected research track papers will be invited for potential publication in the IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC), International Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR), and International Journal of Business Process Integration and Management (IJBPIM). JWSR are included in SCI and EI Compendex. CLOUD Proceedings are indexed by SCI until 2009, and EI indexed until 2011. According to Thomson Scientific, JWSR is listed in the 2008 Journal Citation Report with an Impact Factor of 1.200. The journal ranks #47 of 99 in the Computer Science, Information Systems and ranks #37 of 86 in Computer Science, Software Engineering.

Submitted research & industry track manuscripts will be limited to 8 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages and REQUIRED to be formatted using the IEEE Proceedings template. Unformatted papers and papers beyond the page limit will not be reviewed. Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF or Word format) is required. Detailed instructions for electronic paper preparation and submission, panel proposals, tutorial proposals, workshop proposals, and review process can be found at Conference website.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to the conference and present the paper. One Best Paper award and one Best Student Paper award will be granted at CLOUD 2012. The first author of the best student paper must be a full-time student.

If your paper is application or solution oriented, you can consider submitting it to CLOUD 2012 Industry Track. Manuscripts submitted to the Research Track focusing on application or solution descriptions may be recommended to the Application and Experience Track, or Industry Track for further consideration if the session slots are available.
