=== CDCGM CFP ===
Cloud Computing is becoming the reference model in the field of Distributed Service Computing. The wide adoption of Virtualization technology, Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) within powerful and widely distributed data centers have been allowing developers and consumer to access to a wide range of services and computational resources through a pay-per-use model.

There is an ever increasing demand to share computing resources among cloud service developers, users and service providers (operators) to create, consume and assure services in larger and larger scale. In order to meet the web-scale demand, current computing, management and programming models are evolving to address the complexity and the resulting tool fatigue in current distributed data centers and clouds. New unified computing theories and implementations are required to address the resiliency, efficiency and scale of global web-scale services creation, delivery and assurance. While current generation virtualization technologies that focus on infrastructure management and infusing application awareness in the infrastructure have served us well, they cannot scale in a distributed environment where multiple owners provide infrastructure that is heterogeneous and is evolving rapidly. New architectures that focus on intelligent services deployed using dumb infrastructure on fat and stupid pipes must evolve.

Grid computing elements, frameworks, middlewares, and computing models used by scientists and business analysists need to be integrated into a unified computing framework.

The goal of CDCGM 2014 is to attract young researchers, Ph.D. students, practitioners, and business leaders to bring contributions in the area of distributed Clouds, Grid and their management, especially in the developments of computing, management and programming models, technologies, framework and middleware.

You are invited to submit research papers to the following areas:

Discovering new application scenarios, proposing new operating systems, programming abstractions and tools with particular reference to distributed Grids and Clouds and their integration.

Identifying the challenging problems that still need to be solved such as parallel programming, scaling and management of distributed computing elements.

Reporting results and experiences gained in building dynamic Grid-based middleware, Computing Cloud and workflow management systems.

New infrastructures, middleware, frameworks for Grid and Cloud computing platforms.

Architectural and Design patterns for building unified and interoperable Grid and Cloud platforms.

Virtualization of Grid resources and their management within private/hybrid Cloud.

Programming Models and Paradigms to deploy, configure and control Cloud and Grid Services.

Infrastructures, models and frameworks for Service Migration to/from Cloud and Grid platforms.

Integration of suitable trust systems within Grid and Cloud platforms.

Security, Privacy, Trustiness for Public, Private, and Hybrid Clouds.

Policies, algorithms and frameworks for Service Level Agreement (SLA) within Public, Private and Hybrid Clouds.

New models and technologies for management, configuration, accounting of computational resources within Cloud and Grid systems.

Cloud/Grid Composition, Federation and Orchestration.

High Performance Cloud Computing.

Interoperability between native High Performance Infrastructures and Public/Hybrid Cloud.

Workflow Management within Clouds, Grid and unified computing infrastructures.

Green Cloud Computing.

Big Data models and frameworks with particular emphasis to the integration of existing systems into Public/Hybrid Cloud.

Cloud Storage and Data management within Cloud platforms.
