Call For Papers


IEEE CloudNA 2016
The Second IEEE International Workshop on Cloud-based Networks and Applications

To be held in conjunction with
The 41th IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks
7-10 November 2016, Dubai, UAE

Submission Deadline: June 6, 2016 (extended)


The IEEE CloudNA 2015 will be a one-day workshop and will include a keynote speech. The workshop will bring together researchers, engineers, and practitioners from academia, industry and government to discuss and advance the state-of-the-art research and practice in the emerging area of cloud-based networks and applications. All submissions will be peer reviewed. Accepted papers will be included in the IEEE LCN 2015 proceedings and published in IEEE Xplore.

This workshop solicits unpublished research work related to the latest challenges, technologies, solutions and techniques pertaining to networking within the cloud datacenter and to the efficient and effective cloud deployment and hosting of the various emerging applications and services. The SLO requirements and end-to-end performance of cloud-hosted applications and services can be highly impacted by the underlying networking technologies and architectures adopted within the datacenter. Moreover, co-located services and the cloud network utilization can highly impact the performance of new services and applications to be deployed and provisioned. Effective solutions related to the placement, sizing, bursting, and migration of compute, storage, and data resources within the cloud network(s) become critical to the deployment of elastic and agile applications.

You are invited to submit original technical papers covering (but not limited to the following topics):

. Cloud datacenter architecture and networking
. Network function virtualization
. SDN-enabled cloud datacenters
. Cloud-based services for IoT and smart cities
. Virtual private cloud networking
. Intra and inter-cloud networking
. Deployment of cloud apps and services
. Big Data application provisioning on the cloud
. Cloud bursting techniques
. Scalability and elasticity techniques
. Containers vs. VMs
. Running applicaitons within containers
. Placement and migration of cloud resources within the cloud
. Impact of network utilization and co-located applications on performance
. Cloud resource management and capacity engineering
. Green networking in cloud datacenters
. Trust, security and privacy in the cloud

Authors are invited to submit papers describing original, previously unpublished work, not currently under review by another conference, workshop, or a journal. Full papers (up to 8 camera-ready pages, 10pt font in IEEE format) should present novel perspectives within the general scope of the workshop. Accepted papers are published in IEEE LCN proceedings and IEEE Xplore. All papers must include title, complete contact information for all authors, abstract, and keywords on the cover page. IEEE reserves the right to remove papers from IEEE Xplore that are not presented at the workshop. Papers must be registered on EDAS and submitted in PDF format. Detailed submission instructions are available at the workshop website.
