Call For Papers


4th Smart Cloud Networks & Systems Conference
June 6 - 8, 2018
Paris, France

All accepted and presented papers will be published in IEEE Xplore Digital Library

***** Extended deadline: March 19, 2018 *******

The Cloud is becoming an enabler for enhanced control and management of IP and telecommunications networks. A rapidly-growing example of this is Software Defined Networking (SDN), in which the underlying tools include virtualisation and “Cloud” technology. However, a new paradigm is beginning to emerge: “Cloud” networks: nano, pico, small, large, super large, and extraordinarily large. Location of virtual machines is a major concern for performance optimisation, energy consumption, reliability, cost, etc. In such distributed global environments, control and adequate security measures are of particular concern, yet these, to date, been largely overlooked giving rise to numerous attacks and incidents involving cloud and virtualised resources.
The objective workshop is to present state-of-the-art solutions for Cloud solutions, their associated management and orchestration. The first aspect of this conference will cover new control and orchestration solutions. A second aspect relates to the safety and security of applications made available through Cloud technology and solutions. For this reason new concepts such as an “authentication credentials cloud” solution can increase security in network protocols, as well as fixed and mobile applications. A third element that will be covered involves the solutions and inherent challenges involving the relationship between the control plane (hypervisors) and user space (virtual machines).
Areas of interest include:
Cloud computing and network virtualization
Cloud networks and Distributed Cloud
Cloud of Security
Control algorithms using Cloud
Control and Secure Multi-Tenancy
Crowdsourcing and Cloud services
Cyber-attacks Cloud-oriented vs Cyber defense Cloud-oriented
Data Center Network Control, Security and Optimization
Internet of Things and Cloud
Intra-Cloud vs Inter-Cloud Control and Security
MEC Mobile Edge Computing
SDN: Software-Defined Networking
Security and control of Mobile Internet applications
Security of Virtual Machines
Security, trust and privacy challenges
Virtual Controller and interfaces
Virtual firewalls
Virtual identity management server
WiFi controller and Cloud approach

Paper Submission:
