=======================================================================

CrossCloud is an international workshop series that aims to bring to light issues related to cross-cloud systems, i.e., those that span across multiple cloud provisioning boundaries. CrossCloud’s goal is to bring together a congregation of systems researchers, both from academia and industry, who have relevant knowledge and experience pertaining to designing and assembling cross-cloud architectures, hybrid infrastructures, cloud federations and multi-cloud applications.

The CrossCloud workshop aims to attract researchers from both academia and industry to share and discuss their recent research and experiences in designing and operating multiple cloud systems. Work in this area extends over various topics including cross-cloud resource management, service migration, monitoring, policy enforcement, API interoperability, portability, benefit–cost analysis, and fault mitigation.

=======================================================================
TOPICS OF INTERESTS

Authors are encouraged, but not limited, to cover the following topics:

* Cross-cloud systems: resource management across multiple clouds (e.g., load balancing, performance optimization, security and privacy policy enforcement).
* Containers and Virtual Machine (VM) management across several cloud infrastructures (e.g., VM placement and migration).
* Micro-services: system design, monitoring and management using containers and/or microkernels to achieve cloud provider independence.
* Cross-Cloud agility: dynamic application deployment across multiple cloud platforms, flexibility in moving between different providers and vendors.
* Hybrid cloud infrastructures management (e.g., public and private clouds, heterogeneous cloud systems, cloud and cluster/grid systems).
* Cloud-bursting: workload offloading, multi-cloud resource scheduling strategies.
* Cross-cloud SDKs and APIs: design, maintenance, support and performance evaluation.
* Application portability: priorities, restrictions, and lock-in mitigation techniques and measures.
* API interoperability: study cases and experiences with data and applications.
* Interoperability between managed services (e.g., MapReduce, DB, message queues, etc.).
* Decision support systems: efficient and open application deployment and monitoring across different cloud platforms and providers; cloud brokerage as a means of complexity outsourcing.
* Scalable multi-cloud monitoring: monitoring among different cloud environments; relevant metrics at the different levels of the stack (e.g., network access); monitoring overhead analysis.
* Experiences: assembling and (re)deploying in heterogeneous multi-cloud environments; costs and benefits of cross-cloud management and deployment; challenges in existing cross-cloud platforms; case studies on building or federating multi-cloud systems.
* Cross-Cloud security: Identity and access management across infrastructure boundaries, reconciling application security and privacy requirements across multiple SLAs.

=======================================================================
IMPORTANT DATES

Paper submission: February 8, 2016
Author notification: February 29, 2016
EuroSys Grant application: March 11, 2016
Camera-ready version: March 21, 2016

All deadline times are Anywhere on Earth.

=======================================================================
SUBMISSION GUIDELINE

We will solicit two types of submissions: technical papers (max 6 double-column pages), and posters (max 2 double-column pages). Each submission will receive at least 3 single-blind peer reviews.

Technical paper authors are also encouraged to produce a poster to be displayed in a joint poster session on the workshop day.

=======================================================================
JOURNAL SPECIAL ISSUE

Like in the former editions of the workshop, authors of the best technical papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to the SpringerOpen Journal of Internet Services and Applications thematic series on cross-cloud computing (JISA-CCC).
