When N/A
Where N/A
Submission Deadline TBD

Call For Papers

Cloud computing is now established as a widely used model to offer “everything as a service”. Topics related to cloud computing have been generating substantial interest in the community within a variety of scopes, and it is anticipated that this interest will continue in the future. Cloud computing is important to the research community as it is challenging traditional methods by its sheer size and high level of automation. Corroborating the substantial interest from the community and challenging issues yet to be addressed. Computers and Electrical Engineering has already published six special sections on this topic (January 2013, October 2013, July 2014, February 2015, October 2015, and November 2016).

In this special section, prospective authors are invited to submit their outstanding and original unpublished research manuscripts, focused on latest findings in cloud computing relating to the topics of interest below. This involves research areas for design and analysis of distributed and centralized cloud systems, data centre design and engineering, economic and market models for cloud systems, business models and their applications in scientific, engineering, and commercial deployment. Moreover, with the evolution of the cloud paradigm, we are also interested in the new distributed cloud paradigms, such as fog computing, mobile and vehicular clouds, and their synergy with the centralized cloud data centres.

Topics of interest are limited to:

"As-a-service" management architectures
Accounting and economic models for clouds
Applications and services enabled by clouds
Autonomic cloud computing
Business models and applications
Cloud federation management
Cloud monitoring
Cloud resource management
Cloud service orchestration
Data / Big Data management in the cloud
Fog Computing and Edge Clouds
Green cloud computing
Hybrid clouds
Network mechanisms for optimized cloud access
Performance modelling and evaluation
Policy driven service/resource life-cycle management
QoS/QoE management in the cloud
Scheduling in Clouds
Scientific Workflows on Clouds
SLA Life-cycle Management
Software Defined Networking and Network Virtualization in Clouds and Fogs
Virtualization management
