2nd International Workshop on Optimisation techniques for Resources Management in Clouds (ORMaCloud)
co-located with the 23rd ACM Symposium on High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing (HPDC)
Vancouver, Canada - June 23th/24th, 2014

Workshop Context
The Cloud Computing paradigm is gaining an increasing degree of popularity
and interest both in the industrial and in the scientific community, allowing
customers to outsource the management of physical resources, and to rent a
variable amount of resources according to their actual needs, in a pay-per-use
fashion. In order to hide to customers the details of physical resources and to
provide a flexible and efficient environment to users, Cloud Resource Management
(acronym CloudRM) targets a multitude of constraints and objectives, with the
burden of optimising physical resource usage to ensure feasible business model
placed entirely on Cloud providers. Due to the typical scale of Cloud systems,
these goals are achieved mainly by infrastructures characterised by a high
degree of automation. Such infrastructures allow resource provisioning
and dynamic management of compute, storage and network resources. The ORMaCloud
workshop will focus on management and optimisation issues related to
dependability, scalability, economicity and performance at each level of cloud
computing infrastructures, but also on green computing concerns, i.e. issues
related with energy efficiency and carbon footprint limitation. The
workshop aims at providing a venue for investigating and discussing
these issues and state of the art techniques to solve them from a
number of different viewpoints.
- Different Cloud Platforms: single-tenant Clouds, Cloud brokering platforms,
Cloud Federations;
- Features required by Scientific, Real-time, 24/7, and Big Data Applications,
as well as other classes of Applications;
- CloudRM and advanced QoS management for performance, networking, power
efficiency, security, reliability;
- Unified programming models and impact of the IaaS/PaaS interaction on CloudRM;
- Supporting techniques and methodologies for CloudRM: resource mapping and
scheduling, autonomic management, service monitoring and modelling;
- Interplay of CloudRM and Cloud business models;

The Topics of Interest
According to the above description, the topics of interest for the workshop
include but are not limited to:
- Optimisation Algorithms for CloudRM in Clouds, Cloud Brokers and
Cloud Federations
- CloudRM solutions targeting specific classes of applications including
Scientific, Real-time, 24/7, and Big Data Applications
- Design of energy efficient Cloud IaaS software stacks and middlewares
- Design of QoS aware Cloud IaaS software stacks and middlewares
- Computing models for PaaS in Clouds allowing advanced CloudRM: QoS-, Green-
and Security-aware
- Abstractions for new types of resource: CloudRM of multicore CPUs and GPUs
- Autonomic approaches to CloudRM
- Multi-criteria Scheduling for CloudRM
- Advanced monitoring solutions for CloudRM
- Benchmarks for CloudRM evaluation
- CloudRM impacts on Cloud business models

Paper Submission guidelines
Papers should be formatted in the ACM Proceedings Style and submitted via
the workshop web site. No changes to the margins, spacing, or font sizes
as specified by the style file are allowed. Accepted papers will appear
in the conference proceedings, and will be incorporated into the ACM
Digital Library. Papers must be self-contained and provide the technical
substance required for the program committee to evaluate their contributions.
Papers should thoughtfully address all related work. Submitted papers must
be original work that has not appeared in and is not under consideration
for another conference or a journal. See the ACM Prior Publication Policy
for more details.

Papers can be submitted to ORMaCloud workshop either as *full* papers or as
*short* papers.

- Full papers should present, innovative works whose claims are supported by
solid justifications. Full papers should not exceed 8 pages.

- Short papers should target position-papers and work-in-progress. Short papers
should not exceed 4 pages.
- Work-in-progress papers are expected to present work that is less mature
but holds promise, but do not merit a full submission.
- Position-papers articulate a high-level vision, describe challenging future
directions in the area of Cloud Resources Management.

Journal Special Issue
We are working to organise a Journal Special Issue dedicated to the ORMaCloud 2014
workshop. We plan to invite authors of the ORMaCloud 2014 papers, after the workshop,
to submit their extended papers to that special issue. Currently, we are waiting for
the confirmation from the publisher.
