2nd International Symposium on
Secure Virtual Infrastructures (DOA-SVI'12)
(incorporating and extending the 13th DOA Symposium and 6th IS Symposium)

DOA-SVI'12 is the second International Symposium on Secure Virtual Infrastructures, organized as a component conference of the OnTheMove Federated Conferences & Workshops. This year's OTM event will be held in Rome, Italy, from 10 - 14 September 2012.

Current and future software needs remain focused towards the development and deployment of large and complex intelligent and networked information systems, required for the internet- and intranet-based systems in organizations, and covering a very wide range of application domains as well as technology and research issues.

For 2012, the following themes to be addressed by novel research have been identified:


The topics of this symposium include, but are not limited to:
Virtualized Computing Infrastructures
Service-Oriented Architecture, Service-Oriented Computing
Datacenter Architecture and Management
Cloud Trust, Security, Privacy and Confidentiality
Cloud Models and Development Tools
Cloud Operation and Resource Management
Cloud Performance Modeling and Benchmarks
Cloud Business Applications and Case Studies
Cloud Access Control and Authentication
Cryptographic Algorithms and Protocols
Reliability, Fault Tolerance, Quality-of-Service
Service Level Agreements and Performance Measurement
Pervasive / Ubiquitous Computing in the Cloud
Internet of Things
Software, Database and DataWarehouse security
Privilege Management Infrastructure
Network Security
Identity and Trust Management
Networks of Trust, Clouds of Trust
Value Based Design
Infrastructures for Social Computing and Networking
Clouds and Social Media
Reality Mining
Formal methods and tools for Cloud computing


Distributed computation is undergoing a radical paradigm shift, where users and developers alike are becoming fully decoupled from the technology infrastructure where their applications are executed. Computations details are abstracted by an increasingly deep virtualization layer, veiling distributed execution by means of the same "cloud" that supports it. Together, the notion of Cloud Computing and the related one of service-orientation are enabling new business models based on the seamless provision of dynamically scalable, virtualized resources as services made available “over the cloud”, to be accessed via a web browser.

For this vision to be realised, a number of problems need to be solved, involving the nuts-and-bolts of virtualization as well as the reliability, scalability, security and distribution transparency of cloud-based computations, and the abstractions leading their development (e.g. service composition versus on-line architectural transformations). Along with the rapid evolution of these fields, the Cloud vision requires a huge research and development effort in the underlying technologies, whose advances will broaden the scope of the Cloud's applicability.

DOA-SVI 2012 will investigate all issues related to the potential of the Cloud notion as a metaphor for the future Internet Services, providing semantically rich service descriptions and seamless interfaces to (virtual images of) locally held devices and other technologies such as the traditional Web, distributed datacenters and peer-to-peer systems.


Conference Abstract Submission Deadline: May 11, 2012
Conference Paper Submission Deadline: May 18, 2012
Acceptance Notification: June 25, 2012
Camera Ready Due: July 16, 2012
Author Registration Due: July 16, 2012


Full Papers
Regular paper submissions to DOA-SVI'12 must present original, highly innovative, prospective and forward-looking research in one or more of the themes given above. Full papers must break new ground, present new insight, deliver a significant research contribution and provide validated support for its results and conclusions. Successful submissions typically represent a major advance for the field of cloud computing, referencing and relating the contribution to existing research work, giving a comprehensive, detailed and understandable explanation of a system, study, theory or methodology, and support the findings with a compelling evaluation and/or validation. Each paper must be submitted as a single PDF file in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science format (not longer than eighteen pages in length). Accepted regular papers will be included in the printed conference main proceedings and presented in the paper sessions. Submissions to DOA-SVI'12 must not be under review by any other conference or publication during the DOA-SVI'12 review cycle, and must not be previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere.

Notes (not longer than six pages in length) must report new results and provide support for the results, as a novel and valuable contribution to the field – just like full papers. Notes are intended for succinct work that is nonetheless in a mature state ready for inclusion in archival proceedings. Notes will be held to the same standard of scientific quality as full papers, albeit for a shorter presentation, and must still state how they fit with respect to related work, and provide a compelling explanation and validation. Notes must be submitted as single PDF file in in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science format. Accepted notes will be published in the conference main proceedings and will be presented in the paper sessions of the conference.

Paper Formatting and Presenting
The paper and notes submission site giving all the relevant submission details is located at: Failure to comply with the formatting instructions for submitted papers or notes will lead to the outright rejection of the paper without review. Failure to commit to presentation at the conference automatically excludes a paper from the proceedings.
