============================ Call for Papers ==========================


The 5th Workshop on CrossCloud Infrastructures & Platforms
April 23, 2018

Collocated with the European Conference on Computer Systems (EuroSys)
April 23-26, 2018
Porto, Portugal

(Submission deadline: February 1, 2018)


CrossCloud is an international workshop series that aims to bring to
light several issues related to cross-cloud systems: cloud federation,
multi-cloud architectures, cross-cloud applications, and hybrid clouds.

CrossCloud aims to attract researchers from both academia and industry
to share and discuss their recent research and experiences in designing
and operating multiple cloud systems. Work in this area extends
over various topics including cross-cloud resource management,
monitoring, service migration, API interoperability, portability,
policy enforcement, benefit–cost analysis, and fault mitigation.


Authors are invited to submit papers covering, but not limited to,
the following topics:

- Multi-cloud systems: resource management across multiple clouds and
virtualized infrastructures, including performance optimization, load
balancing, security, and privacy policy enforcement.

- Containers, unikernels, and serverless computing: migration, instrum-
entation, optimization, and management across separate infrastructures.

- Cross-Cloud agility: adaptive workload offloading, multi-cloud resou-
rce scheduling strategies (e.g. cloud-bursting), dynamic application
deployment across multiple platforms, and flexibility in moving between
different providers.

- Decision support systems: efficient and open application deployment,
monitoring of relevant metrics among different cloud environments; cloud
brokerage as a means of complexity outsourcing.

- Cross-cloud developer tools and APIs: design, maintenance, support,
and performance evaluation.

- API interoperability: study cases and experiences with data and appli-
cations including managed services (e.g., MapReduce, stream processing,
DB, message queues, etc.).

- Fog and edge computing: resource aggregation, segmentation, placement,
and orchestration.

- Experiences: lessons learned on assembling and (re)deploying applicat-
ions in heterogeneous cloud environments; costs and benefits of cross-
cloud management and deployment; priorities, restrictions, and lock-in
mitigation techniques and measures; challenges in existing crosscloud
platforms; case studies on building or federating multi-cloud systems.


Paper submission: February 1 2018
Author notification: March 1 2018
EuroSys Student Grant application: March 15, 2018
Camera-ready version: March 9, 2018
Workshop day: April 23, 2018

All deadline times are Anywhere on Earth.


We solicit two types of submissions: (1) technical papers (max
6 double-column pages), and (2) posters (max 2 double-column pages).
Each submission will receive at least 3 single-blind peer reviews.
Authors of technical papers are also encouraged to prepare a poster
to be displayed in the workshop's poster sessions.


Like in the former editions of the workshop, authors of the best
technical papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their
work to the Springer Open Journal of Internet Services and Applications
thematic series on cross-cloud computing (JISA-CCC).
