IEEE 2012 SERVIES Workshop on
Performance Aspects of Cloud and Service Virtualization
(IEEE CloudPerf 2012)

One day between June 24-29 2012, Hyatt Regency Waikiki Resort and Spa, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
within IEEE SERVICES 2012


Cloud computing and service virtualization have progressed rapidly in recent years and face challenges of creating a highly efficient, secure, and transparent way to support the consolidation of all different kinds of legacy applications, packaged applications, and custom services. Performance related aspects of cloud and virtualization systems are becoming the bottlenecks for service implementation, deployment and commercial application and its operation. The cloud paradigm and services virtualization also come up with algorithmic and engineering issues as well as performance aspects not yet eminent but expected to grow with their spreading deployment and application, the scaling of the large cloud systems, and the dynamics of management and real time service performance. These new performance aspects may comprise, sometimes even deteriorate the efficiency, logical or physical transparency of cloud services, quality of isolation, fairness among virtualized systems, quality of synthetic services, scalability of the composition of virtualized services and of the management mechanisms for cloud centers and their operation patterns.

IEEE 2012 International Workshop on Performance Aspects of Cloud and Service Virtualization (IEEE CloudPerf 2012) is a forum for professionals involved in performance aspects of virtualized, autonomic and cloud computing systems. The goal of this workshop is to bridge the gap between theory and practice in the field of performance aspects including research, engineering, and industry related issues by providing a forum for sharing ideas and experiences between industry and academia, sharing and presenting their experiences, discuss challenges, and report state-of-the-art and in-progress research on performance aspects of cloud and service virtualization, including performance measurement, analytic modeling, simulation, performance engineering, benchmark design, and run-time performance management.

The workshop welcome various different kinds of papers that could formalize, simplify and optimize the performance aspects of existing cloud and virtualization infrastructures in science, engineering and business. The papers may address issues including performance models, performance engineering methods, and real world practices leading to cloud and virtualization services and solutions that provide users with efficient techniques for virtualizing and managing their own high performance cloud systems. Papers of applied research, industrial experience reports, work-in-progress and vision papers with different criteria for each category are also solicited. Extensions of selected papers will be published in a journal special issue.

Workshop Organizers Short Bio
Christophe C閞in is a professor at the University of Paris XIII, IUT de Villetaneuse where he leads the group on Grid and Parallel Systems. The Computer Science lab of the Paris XIII University (LIPN) is associated to the CNRS (URA 1507 then UPRESA 7030 and now UMR 7030) since January 1992. Most of the LIPN professor-researchers are attached to the Paris XIII University. The Lab is structured into five teams whose research themes show numerous meeting points: Algorithms and Combinatorial Optimization (AOC), where issues related to optimization into integers, approximation, and distributed and parallel algorithms are studied. The AOC team is composed of a group working on grid middleware, fault tolerant issues in parallel libraries and execution environment (safe execution). More precisely, the team is working on Desktop Grid middleware in order to decentralize all the architecture of current Desktop Grid Middleware. The team is developing BonjourGrid and PastryGrid which are available on Sourceforge. The team is also working on the design of efficient libraries for running threads on multicore machines, especially heterogeneous machines and on the design of fault-tolerant libraries and implementations for the MPI programming interface.
