SCOPE AND OBJECTIVE

The ongoing adoption of Cloud Computing has lead to an increase in the level
of complexity of the existing services and inherently higher risks for companies
willing to migrate in order to benefit from this new paradigm. These risks could
arise from deviations from the normal operation that could lead to a reduction or
interruption of the QoS, service shortages, or incidents.

Cloud Incident Management, as a novel research direction, is addressing specific
issues that are related to cloud services, bringing under the same umbrella
relevant topics including cloud management automation, SLA and QoS management
(and specifically management of SLA incidents), Cloud forensics and targeting
the resolution of deviations from normal operations.

A major goal of this special issue is to explore the challenges and opportunities
that exist in relation with hot topics in cloud incident management and cloud
forensics, in order to meet the needs of modern cloud applications, and to encourage
the submission of ongoing work with already important theoretical and practical
results, as well as position papers and case studies of existing verification
projects to highlight the art in this domain.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

This special issue calls for original papers describing the latest research and
innovations, solutions and developments on Cloud Incident Management as well as
related topics like QoS and SLAs, Disaster Recovery, Cloud Standards etc.
The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics in focus of this special issue:

- Cloud incident management architectures, workflows and automated handling processes;
- Techniques and algorithms for cloud incident detection and classification;
- Intrusion and anomaly detection and prevention
- Root cause analysis in cloud computing;
- Engineering of self-healing cloud autonomic systems;
- Resilient service provisioning in cloud computing;
- Cloud forensic investigations, electronic discovery (eDiscovery);
- Audit, security, privacy, and compliance management for cloud computing;
- Cloud quality management and service level agreement (SLA);
- Disaster recovery in cloud computing;
- Critical infrastructure protection;
- Cloud configuration, performance, and capacity management;
- Novel fault-tolerance techniques and implementations of emerging software technologies;
- Incident management integration within the cloud service lifecycle
- Analysis of cloud anti-patterns for incident avoidance
- Standards, practices and processes for the handling of cloud incidents
