ICSS 2016 : International Workshop on Cloud Computing @ XIX International Conference on Systems Science
Call For Papers
CALL FOR PAPERS
International Workshop on Cloud Computing
at the XIX International Conference on Systems Science (ICSS 2016)
September 7-9, 2016, Wrocław, Poland
Objectives and topics
Cloud Computing has emerged to one of the most widespread used paradigms for on-demand resource provisioning and application development.
Due to its popular characteristics like resource pooling, rapid elasticity, broad network access, or pay as you go pricing models, it has been widely adopted for a variety of application scenarios and use cases. Those unique attributes have led to a number of new research topics.
Possibilities offered by modern cloud infrastructures gave researchers and developers an opportunity to design new application architectures, develop algorithms and methods for Big Data processing in the cloud, introduce new methods for web service management and resource management, propose new service composition methods, apply new business models for cloud services’ delivery and develop methods for management of methods supporting Internet of Things data aggregation and processing in the cloud.
All these research topics are closely related and can be implemented in scenarios utilizing cloud computing in the Internet of Things (IoT).
Applications in the scope of the IoT, such as telemedicine, smart homes, smart cities or applications with industrial background such as factory automation, logistics, or automotive are often based on a variety of heterogeneous sensor nodes and sensor networks collecting data about the environment.
Both, amount and diversity of sensor nodes and resulting data streams are rapidly increasing. Thus, IoT applications can benefit from the ability to elastically provide computing-, network-, and storage resources offered by the Cloud. However, the Cloud Computing and Internet of Things domains show divergent characteristics in term of their underlying resources. While IoT developers often have to be aware of resource constraints, location and semantics of sensor nodes, non-functional and infrastructure management requirements, Cloud Computing is perceived as a rather homogenous and endless resource being accessible within seconds and without limits. Therefore, it is necessary to investigate and develop appropriate concepts that allow leveraging the advantages of the Cloud Computing for the challenging application scenarios of the Internet of Things domain.
This workshop is intended to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners whose research works focus on cloud computing related topics described in this call. We encourage submissions on all theoretical and practical aspects, as well as experimental studies of deployed systems.
Topics of interests include (but are not limited to) the following subject categories:
- Cloud Computing infrastructure
- Cloud Computing for Big Data
- Computing methods design and implementation
- Cloud Computing for Service Orinted Architectures
- Methods for resource allocation in cloud environments
- Web service and microservice composition methods
- Business models for Cloud Computing services delivery
- Cloud Computing models and architecture
- Cloud Computing applications
- Cloud computing for Internet of Things
- Models and methods of decision making support in Cloud Computing resources management
- Platforms for the integration of Cloud and IoT environments
- Security and Privacy for Cloud based IoT applications
- Non-functional requirements and Quality of service for Cloud based IoT applications
