IEEE Cloud Computing Magazine - Special Issue on Middleware for Multicloud

As Cloud Computing evolved to a widely used computing as a service model, limitations and intrinsic characteristics of monolithic cloud provider offerings emerged. Moreover, specialized computing power such as clusters, GPUs, solid state storage, and specific applications at different service levels can now be acquired as services from different providers. The use of a combination of cloud services from various providers can be performed to contour limitations of a single provider and enhance application execution by gathering together the necessary specific, on demand resources for a wide range of applications. Multicloud Middleware has a central role in providing a combination of resources from different cloud providers by implementing a distributed system platform that is able to efficiently coordinate them.

This IEEE Cloud Computing Magazine Special Issue on Middleware for Multicloud aims to cover all aspects of design and implementation, as well as deployment and evaluation of multicloud middleware and its components. A middleware for multicloud connects multiple clouds to allow automatic, transparent, and on demand application execution that takes advantage from the synergy among resources of different providers. For this synergy to become effective and efficient, connecting different providers across their boundaries brings new, challenging efforts. Multicloud middleware design and deployment must solve challenges that include resource management and scheduling, identity management, trust and security issues, business models, and incentive mechanisms in multicloud environments. We invite authors to submit outstanding and original manuscripts on all aspects related to middleware for multiclouds, including, but not limited to:

- Cloud Middleware design and implementation
- Auditing and Accounting
- Middleware performance and evaluation
- Middleware for Data Management
- Multicloud Middleware for the Internet of Things
- Middleware for Cloud Federations
- Middleware for Hybrid Clouds
- Brokering Mechanisms
- Resource Discovery and Management
- Scheduling and Load Balancing
- Cross-service-level Mgmt (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, XaaS)

***** Schedule
Full manuscript due: January 16, 2017
Initial recommendations due: February 22, 2017
Revision due: April 9, 2017
Final decisions due: May 31, 2017
Final manuscript due: June 15, 2017
Publication date: August 2017

***** Submission details
Submissions will go through the IEEE Cloud Computing Magazines’ peer-review process. Articles should be between 3,000 and 5,000 words, with figures counting for approximately 250 words each and maximum of 15 references should be used. The authors should not assume specialized audience, thus the manuscript should be understandable to a broad audience of people interested in cloud computing and multiclouds. Accepted articles will be edited according to the IEEE Computer Society style guide. Submit your papers to Manuscript Central at
