CLOUDCOMP 2015 : 6th International Conference on Cloud Computing
Conference Series : Cloud Computing
Call For Papers
Prospective authors are invited to submit high quality papers reporting results on activities related to cloud computing, which is envisioned to change the IT landscape, is consumer/delivery model where IT capabilities are offered as services billed based on usage. Examples of cloud services include, but are not limited to, IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service), PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) and SaaS (Software-as-a-Service).
The underlying cloud architecture includes a pool of virtualized compute, storage and networking resources that can be aggregated and launched as platforms to run workloads and satisfy their Service-Level Agreement (SLA). Cloud architectures also include provisions to best guarantee service delivery for clients and at the same time optimize efficiency of resources of providers. Examples of provisions include, but are not limited to, elasticity through up/down scaling of resources to track workload behavior, extensive monitoring, failure mitigation, and energy optimizations.
The two main technologies enabling clouds are: (i) Virtualization, the foundation of clouds; and (ii) manageability (autonomics), the command and control of clouds. CloudComp is intended to bring together researchers, developers, and industry professionals to discuss recent advances and experiences in clouds, cloud computing and related ecosystems and business support. The conference also aims at presenting the recent advances, experiences and results obtained in the wider area of cloud computing, giving users and researchers equally a chance to gain better insight into the capabilities and limitations of current cloud systems.

Papers should be no more than 10 pages in length. Submissions will be reviewed anonymously by at least 3 reviewers. Papers will be judged on originality, correctness, clarity and relevance. Submitted papers must be original work, and may not be under consideration for another conference or journal. Complete formatting and submission instructions can be found on the conference web site. Submission of the paper implies agreement of the author(s) to attend the conference and present the paper if accepted.
Complete formatting and submission instructions for papers and workshops proposals can be found on the conference website.
Accepted papers will be published in the CloudComp Conference Proceedings and by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST). The proceedings will be available both in book form and via the SpringerLink digital library, which is one of the largest digital libraries online and covers a variety of scientific disciplines. LNICST volumes are submitted for inclusion to leading indexing services, including Engineering Index (EI), DBLP, Google Scholar, ISI Proceedings, CrossRef, as well as EU Digital Library (EUDL).
Selected papers, particularly those nominated for the Best Paper competition, will be automatically considered for publication in the Special Issues on “Mobile Cloud Media: Emerging Trends, Issues, and Challenges” of Springer Mobile Networks and Applications (MONET) journal (SCIE-indexed), more details can be found on the MONET website.
Selected papers may be invited to publish in the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Cloud Systems.
