*** Scope and Objective ***

As more and more applications and data are shifted to online hosting
services, predominantly at commercial cloud providers (e.g., Amazon,
Microsoft, Google, IBM, and Huawei), the adaptation of applications to
these environments becomes a major concern. Risks include temporary or
permanent unavailability of services, low platform resilience, sudden
popularity spikes (i.e., the Slashdot effect), overpayment due to not
exploiting flexible hosting options as well as unauthorized access to
the data. New application architectures, so-called cloud native
applications based on microservices, are therefore becoming more
The fine-grained decoupling of application parts with partial
offloading into the cloud becomes a major concern for developers and
development tooling providers.
The industrial relevance of this topic is on the rise, in particular
with the recent formation of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
Edge topics such as user-controllable stealth computing across hybrid
clouds are already on the horizon of researchers.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and engineers
to propose and demonstrate novel methods of safely running
applications, processing data and offering services on industry-leading
cloud platforms.

*** Workshop topics ***

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research
manuscripts, experience reports and experimental results that
demonstrate current research in all areas of cloud applications.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- cloud-native application designs
- application decomposition into microservices
- service-oriented systems for cloud-native applications
- deployment with orchestrated containers
- resilient cloud/client computing
- cloud operations analytics
- automated recovery of cloud platforms
- chaos engineering
- high availability and reliability hosting schemes
- resilient and fault-tolerant storage and computation
- user control and feedback during the entire application lifecycle
- innovative use of PaaS and IaaS interfaces
- multi-service programming techniques
- multiplexed, dispersed and stealth computing approaches
- combined compute and storage service systems for data-intensive apps
- pro-active reliability concepts, monitoring and anomaly detection
- self-organization and self-management for cloud services
- application and data offloading

*** Paper selection policy ***

Workshop papers are a maximum of 6 pages in length (in IEEE format).
Submissions should be structured as technical papers in the form of PDF
files. They must represent original unpublished content which is not
currently under review for any other conference, workshop or journal.

All papers will be peer reviewed by at least three programme committee
members. The evaluation will be based on originality, relevance of the
problem to the workshop topics, technical strength, quality of results,
and clarity of the presentation.

The publication of the workshop proceeding with all accepted papers
will be by the IEEE and will appear in the same volume as the main
conference IEEE SOSE 2016. At least one author of each accepted
submission must attend the workshop and all workshop participants must
pay the IEEE SOSE 2016 conference registration fee.
