The 5th International Symposium on Cloud and Service Computing(SC2 2015)
Dec. 19th-21st, 2015, Chengdu, Sichuan, China
(IEEE/ACM/Elsevier/Springer Sponsored)

- Research paper
- Wild and Works-in-Progress
- Industry and workshop track
- Doctoral symposium
- Demo/Poster

The “Cloud” is a natural evolution of distributed computing and the widespread adaption of virtualization and SOA. Services computing is a new cross-discipline subject that covers the science and technology needed to bridge the gap between business services and IT services. In cloud computing, IT-related capabilities and resources are provided as services, via the Internet and on-demand, accessible without requiring detailed knowledge of the underlying technology.

SC2 2015 is an important forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in the state of art and practice of IT-driven cloud computing technologies and services, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future directions of cloud and services computing.

SC2 2015 will be held on Dec. 19th-21st, 2015 in Chengdu, Sichuan, China. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

● Cloud architecture
● Cloud OS, middleware, and toolkits
● Storage architectures
● Big Data
● Virtualization techniques
● Resource provision, monitoring, and scheduling
● Privacy and access control for cloud computing
● Performance evaluation and modeling measurement for cloud computing
● Programming models for building cloud applications
● Networking in cloud computing
● Security of services
● Energy efficient hardware and software solutions
● High availability and reliability
● Large scale cloud applications, including Internet/web computing and data mining
● Volunteer computing
● Grid computing
● Service Oriented Architecture
● Discovery of services and data in Cloud Computing infrastructures
● Foundations of Services Computing
● Services-Centric Business Models
● Business Process Integration and Management

Research Paper:
Full research manuscripts should explore a specific technology problem and propose a complete solution to it, with extensive experimental results, practical experience reports are expected to provide an in-depth exposition of practitioner experiences and empirical studies.

WIP Paper:
Wild and Works-in-Progess (WIP) Papers are expected to present either work currently in progress or less developed but highly innovative ideas related to areas relevant to IOV, aiming at inspiring discussion among conference attendees and getting people thinking about open research challenges.
Please send your submission as an email attachment in PDF to with the subject: “SC2 WIP Paper Submission.”

Industry presentation:
The objective of the Industry Track is to establish an efficient dialogue between practitioners and researchers concerning the challenges, findings (both positive and negative), encountered obstacles, and lessons learned on IOV. The Industry Track papers and presentations will address the application of IOV practices (which may include work on principles, techniques, tools, methods, processes) to a specific domain or to the development of a substantial IOV system.
Please send your submission as an email attachment in PDF to with the subject: “SC2 Industry Presentation Submission.”

Doctoral Symposium:
The objective of the Doctoral Symposium is to provide constructive feedback and guidance to doctoral students who are performing their dissertation research in the field of IOV and to help students interact with established researchers and practitioners. A research summary should include Student name, university, research advisor, the problem to be addressed by your thesis, Your research hypothesis, The expected contributions of your dissertation research, Your proposed research approach, Summary of results to date, How you plan to evaluate your results and a dissemination plan.
Please send your submission as an email attachment in PDF to with the subject: “SC2 Doctoral Symposium Submission.”

Submissions must describe working systems and be related to IOV. These systems may be innovative prototype implementations or mature systems that use related technology. The demo paper should provide adequate information on the system's architecture, individual components, the way the system is operated, and the way the system will be demonstrated during the conference.

Please send your submission as an email attachment in PDF to with the subject: “SC2 Demo/Poster Submission.”

Submission deadline: Sep. 15th, 2015 (Research track)
Submission deadline: Sep. 22nd, 2015 (Works-in-Progress)
Submission deadline: Sep. 29th, 2015 (Industry and workshop track)
