Call For Papers

Current and future software needs to remain focused towards the development and deployment of large and complex intelligent and networked information systems, required for internet-based and intranet-based systems in organizations. Today software covers a very wide range of application domains as well as technology and research issues. This has found realization through Cloud Computing. Vital element in such networked information systems are the notions of trust, security, privacy and risk management.

Cloud and Trusted Computing (C&TC 2015) is the 5th International Symposium on Cloud Computing, Trusted Computing and Secure Virtual Infrastructures, organized as a component conference of the OnTheMove Federated Conferences & Workshops. C&TC 2015 will be held in Rhodes, Greece.

The conference solicits submissions from both academia and industry presenting novel research in the context of Cloud Computing, presenting theoretical and practical approaches to cloud trust, security, privacy and risk management. The conference will provide a special focus on the intersection between cloud and trust bringing together experts from the two communities to discuss on the vital issues of trust, security, privacy and risk management in Cloud Computing. Potential contributions could cover new approaches, methodologies, protocols, tools, or verification and validation techniques. We also welcome review papers that analyze critically the current status of trust, security, privacy and risk management in the cloud. Papers from practitioners who encounter trust, security, privacy and risk management problems and seek understanding are also welcome.

Topics of interests of C&TC 2015 include, but are not limited to:

- Assurance Techniques
- Access Control, Authorization, and Authentication
- Cloud Computing with Autonomic and Trusted Environment

Paper Submission

Full paper submissions to Cloud and Trusted Computing 2015 (C&TC 2015) must present original, highly innovative, prospective and forward-looking research in one or more of the themes given above. Full papers must break new ground, present new insight, deliver a significant research contribution and provide validated support for its results and conclusions. Successful submissions typically represent a major advance for the field of cloud computing, referencing and relating the contribution to existing research work, giving a comprehensive, detailed and understandable explanation of a system, study, theory or methodology, and support the findings with a compelling evaluation and/or validation. Each paper must be submitted as a single PDF file in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science format (not longer than 18 pages in length). Accepted regular papers will be included in the printed conference main proceedings and presented in the paper sessions. Submissions to C&TC 2015 must not be under review by any other conference or publication at any time during the C&TC review cycle, and must not be previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere.

Notes (not longer than 6 pages in length) must report new results and provide support for the results, as a novel and valuable contribution to the field – just like full papers. Notes are intended for succinct work that is nonetheless in a mature state ready for inclusion in archival proceedings. Notes will be held to the same standard of scientific quality as full papers, albeit for a shorter presentation, and must still state how they fit with respect to related work, and provide a compelling explanation and validation. Notes must be submitted as single PDF file in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science format. Accepted notes will be published in the conference main proceedings and will be presented in the paper sessions of the conference.

A selection of the best papers from Cloud and Trusted Computing 2015 will be published in a special issue of The International Journal of Computer Systems Science and Engineering.

Submissions are to be made to the submission web site available at

The paper and notes submission site giving all the relevant submission details is located at: Failure to comply with the formatting instructions for submitted papers or notes will lead to the outright rejection of the paper without review. Failure to commit to presentation at the conference automatically excludes a paper from the proceedings.
