2nd CALL FOR PAPERS - Third Intercloud2013 Workshop

IEEE Third International Workshop on
Cloud Computing Interclouds, Multiclouds, Federations, and Interoperability (Intercloud 2014)
Organised by Cloud Computing Association
Co-Sponsored by IEEE Cloud Computing Initiative

As part of
IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E)

March 11, 2014
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Submission Deadline: December 2, 2013


Advances in processing, communication and systems/middleware technologies have led us to new paradigms and platforms for computing – in the form of Cloud Computing. That in its own turn creates a basis for the Big Data and Data intensive technologies. Cloud Computing from Cloud Service Providers is a burgeoning market with a wide variety to choose from, including some of the most notable names in Internet and IT today.

Cloud Computing is the go-to platform now for datacenter architecture, scalable application hosting, new application development, and mobile app platform. While cloud Computing enjoys a certain amount of application – or application architecture – portability, there are not really any interoperability standards or common practices in place. Security, SLA, and other concerns are still active areas of interest. Also, while Cloud Computing is different from Grid Computing, there is some Federation and Interoperability in the Grid community, are these appropriate to the Cloud Computing space.

It is widely believed that the whole space of Clouds, Grids, and the Intercloud will federate and eventually converge. There are lessons to be learned from the early Internet work as well as Mobile Telephony. Some believe that SDN is the key to making this happen.

This workshop focuses on techniques, experiences and lessons learned for interoperable services in Interclouds, Multiclouds, Federations, and Interoperability. This workshop aims at providing a forum to bring together researchers for sharing and exchanging Cloud computing related research, technologies, experience, and lessons for building Clouds with Intercloud, Multicloud, Federation, and Interoperability capabilities and services.

The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

* Theory, frameworks, methodologies, architecture for Interclouds,
Multiclouds, Federations, and Interoperability
* Cloud Federation and Interoperability Protocols
* Trust, Security, Identity for Interclouds, Multiclouds, Federations,
and Interoperability
* Virtual Private Cloud, IP-SEC, MPLS techniques for Domain Management
* Grid Federation and Interoperability Protocols, Lessons Learned, As
Applied to Clouds
* Experimental Results of Distributed/Multiple Datacenter Cloud
Coordination and Interoperability
* Theory or Experimental Results of SDN used for Federations,
and Interoperability
* Semantic Web Services Definitions for Clouds Resources and Management
* Using Big Data techniques to solve Federation Constraint based
Resource Matching
* Mobile Roaming applications for for Interclouds, Multiclouds,
Federations, and Interoperability
* Cloud and Grid Federation governance and regulatory issues
* Traffic and load balancing across Federated and Interoperable Clouds
* QoS/SLA in Federated and Interoperable Clouds
* Converged Implementations of Clouds and Grids
* PaaS for Interclouds, Multiclouds, Federations, and Interoperability
* Interoperable cloud based infrastructures for Big Data applications
* Management operations, discovery, configuration, provisioning
* Geo-balancing for Interclouds, Multiclouds, Federations, and
* Compliance, Reference Definitions and Semantics, for Interclouds,
Multiclouds, Federations, and Interoperability
* Testbeds for Interclouds, Multiclouds, Federations, and


Manuscripts should be prepared in 10-point font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11" two-column format. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages. All papers should be in PDF. Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.

Paper submission

A paper submitted to Intercloud2014 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the entire time it is considered for Intercloud2014, and it must be substantially different from any previously published work. All submissions are peer-reviewed. The IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services will publish accepted papers.

Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the organizer.


Paper Submissions: December 2, 2013
