IEEE International Workshop on Software Defined Systems(SDS -2014)
in conjunction with 2014 IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E 2014)

March 11, 2014, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Call for papers

Next generation cloud systems will require a paradigm shift in how they are constructed and managed. Conventional control and management platforms are facing considerable challenges regarding flexibility, dependability and security that next generation systems will require. The cloud computing paradigm has gone part of the way towards alleviating some of the problems associated with resource allocation, utilization and managements (e.g., via elasticity). However, many of the elements of a well-designed cloud environment remain “stiff” and hard to modify and adapt in an integrated fashion. This includes underlying networking topologies, many aspects of the user control over IaaS, PaaS or SaaS layers when such is needed, construction of XaaS services, provenance and meta-data collection, and so on. In many situations the problem may be because service abstraction is inadequate. Software Defined Systems (SDS) are systems that have added software components which help abstract actual IT equipment and other layers. One classical example, of course, are hypervisors. Such separation provides a great opportunity for system administrators to more easily construct and managing their systems through flexible software layers. Software Defined Systems include Software Defined Networking (SDN), Software Defined Storage, Software Defined Servers (Virtualization), Software Defined Datacenters (SDD), Software Defined Security (SDSec), and ultimately Software Defined Clouds (SDCloud) to name a few possibilities. Individual solutions and seamless integration of these abstractions remains in many respects a challenge. The first International workshop on Software Defined Systems (SDS -2014) is a forum for scientists, researchers, students, and practitioners to present their latest research results, ideas, and developments in the area of software defined systems – both components and their integration - and by implication advancement of next generation clouds.

Camera-ready paper submission : January 17, 2014

Papers Submissions Guidelines:

Manuscripts should be prepared in 10-point font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11" two-column format. All papers should be in PDF format, and submitted electronically at Paper Submission Link.A full paper should not exceed 6 pages (including all figures, tables and references).A paper submitted to SDS 2014 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the entire time it is considered for SDS 2014. All submissions are peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services. The best papers will be selected for a special? issue of IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing (TCC). IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if none of the authors attends the conference to present their paper.
