Nowadays many providers of cloud services (IaaS, SaaS, PaaS, DaaS, . . . ) emphasize
the many benefits of outsourcing application into a private or public cloud. For instance,
cloud computing reduces spending on technology infrastructure, improves accessibility, etc.
Moreover, cloud architectures are resilient in scaling IT resources up and down on-demand,
by which cloud services are able to adapt to dynamically changing business requirements.
In other words, it is suggested that cloud computing represents a mature technology
that is ready to be massively used. The truth is that cloud computing still requires lots of
research. Many actors of academia and industry are concerned about cloud security, privacy,
availability, data protection, interoperability, etc.
The TLDKS special issue on Cloud Computing is devoted to provide an opportunity to
disseminate original research contributions and a high quality communication platform for
researchers and practitioners.

Authors are kindly invited to submit original research papers which are not submitted or
accepted for publication in any other workshop, conference, or journal. The manuscript must
be in English, formatted in LNCS proceeding style and submitted in pdf. Please follow the
instructions at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. We encourage you to
submit a paper between 20-30 pages in length, although there is no strict page limit. All papers
must be submitted electronically via e-mail to Gabriela Wagner (firstname.lastname@example.org)
(Subject: TLDKS - Special Issue on Cloud Computing).
Submitted papers are carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical sound-
ness and clarity of exposition by at least two reviewers.
Reviewers are asked to provide a clear and justified recommendation, whether to accept
a paper without or with minor changes, to request a major revision or to reject the paper.
Authors of the papers for which a major revision is requested in the first round are invited
to submit the revised version for a second reviewing round. The result of the 2nd reviewing
round is either acceptance (with or without minor changes) or rejection.
