Important Dates

Final version: April 28, 2017
Workshop date: July 19-22, 2017


The ongoing adoption of Cloud Computing has lead to an increase in the level of
complexity of the existing services and inherently new challenges for companies
willing to migrate in order to benefit from this new paradigm. Due to this
evolving complexity of heterogeneous clouds, new approaches based on the
principles of self-management and self-organization are foreseen, such that one
can limit the burden of low-level service management (such as provisioning,
scheduling, optimization, orchestration etc.), and offer rather a high-level
approach with increased accessibility to heterogeneous resources, and reduced
effort for development, deployment or optimization.

The aim of SOSeMC is to contribute to the interaction and exchange of ideas
among members of the international research community. It will cover a challenging
range of topics including, but not necessarily limited to:

* Self organizing and self managing of heterogeneous clouds
* Applications and case studies of end-to-end implementation of cloud management systems
* Self management and organization under some physical assumptions
* Support for heterogeneous resources in cloud, resource characterization
* Self optimization of clouds
* Big data placement, scheduling and optimization
* Large-scale big data workflow management
* Dynamic resource allocation on demand
* Novel Cloud Architectures, Infrastructures and Workflows
* Anomaly detection and monitoring in cloud environments
* Data-intensive applications

Submission Information

Submissions should not exceed 6 pages and must present original unpublished work
which is not submitted elsewhere. They should be written in English
and formatted according to the IEEE guidelines for conference proceedings

Please sumbmit your papers using the EasyChair conference management system at

All submissions will undergo a peer-reviewing process.The proceedings of all
ICAC workshops will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press and made
available as a part of the IEEE digital library. In addition, papers will be
part of the conference proceedings.
