CloudTech 2016 : The 2nd International Conference on Cloud Computing Technologies and Applications
Call For Papers
After the success of the previous edition (CloudTech'15), we are very glad to announce the CloudTech'16, Second International Conference of Cloud Computing Technologies and Applications. The CloudTech'16 will be organized by National College of IT (ENSIAS, Mohamed V University) and Moroccan Association of Cloud Computing in partnership with IEEE Moroccan section and University of Mons (Belguim) during May 24-26, 2016 in Marrakech-Morocco.
Cloud computing has recently gained great attention from both academia and IT industry as a new infrastructure requiring smaller investments in hardware platform, staff training, or licensing new software tools. Cloud computing can be seen as any subscription-based or pay-per-use service that, extends the Internet existing capabilities.
CloudTech'16 will address topics related to cloud technologies; architecture and applications including distributed computing and data centers, cloud infrastructure and its security, end-user services, Big data and its applications. The conference will provide a high-level, international forum for scientists, researchers, professionals and students who will have the opportunity to present state-of-the-art research results, address new challenges, and discuss trends in Cloud Technology and Big data.
