6th International workshop on Cloud Applications and Security in conjunction with The 10th IEEE International Conference for Internet Technology and Secured Transactions

The 7th International Workshop on Cloud Applications and Security (CAS’16) in conjunction with

the 11th IEEE International Conference for Internet Technology and Secured Transactions (ICITST - 2016)

December 5-7, 2016, Barcelona, Spain

CAS’16 -

Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society , Infonomics Society, BCS and IET

Workshop Goal

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss and advance the state of the art in the development and security of applications utilising Cloud Computing. Cloud computing is an emerging research topic widely discussed within the community of distributed systems and Grid computing experts. It promises to vastly change the implementation, usage and management of computing systems both in the public and private sector. The proposed benefits of the technology would offer reduced overheads by removing procurement and charging by usage, ultimately delivering computing as a utility. An additional feature is the extensibility of clouds; enabling allocated resources to expand and contract dependent upon the requirements for usage. The potential gains lie not only with the efficient allocation of resources, but also a green utilization of resources by maximizing the usage of a resource through the dynamic
reallocation of jobs to cloud resources. The adoption of such technology by organisations clearly carries a number of significant benefits to the computing research community, such as dynamic provisioning of data and software to support project tasks. However, there are also a number of associated challenges which must be considered prior to a widespread uptake of Cloud Computing as a major computing architecture. In particular, the legal and technical management of the systems, the data and the services provided need to be investigated. The CAS workshop, therefore aims to connect and allow sharing ideas, problems and solutions between those researchers and practitioners that face Cloud challenges.

Original papers are invited on all relevant topics of Cloud Computing but papers on or related to the topics listed below are particularly welcome.

Workshop Topics

* Cloud technology
* Security issues in the Cloud
* QoS and Cloud networking
* Cloud applications to the Internet of Things
* Cloud-based e-health systems and applications
* Application of cloud in private and public sectors/ case studies
* Legal issues in the Cloud
* New architectures and design methods for developing cloud services
* Tools and techniques for developing and managing applications in the cloud
* New standards of security and privacy for Cloud applications
* Legacy systems in the Cloud
* Benefits of Cloud Computing
* Green utilization of resources in the Cloud



All the Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published by IEEE and fully indexed by IEEE Xplore and modified version of selected papers will be published in special issue peer reviewed journals
