The 2nd International Conference on Cloud Computing
Barcelona, Spain, October 25 – 28, 2010
Cloud Computing is an emerging computing paradigm envisioned to change all IT
landscape facets including technology, business, services and human resources.
It is a consumer/delivery model that offers IT capabilities as services, billed
based on usage. Many such cloud services can be envisioned, but the main ones
are IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service), PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service), and SaaS
(Software-as-a-Service). The underlying cloud architecture includes a pool of
virtualized compute, storage and networking resources that can be aggregated and
launched as platforms to run workloads and satisfy their Service-Level Agreement
(SLA). Cloud architectures also include provisions to best guarantee service
delivery for clients and at the same time optimize efficiency of resources of
providers. Examples of provisions include, but not limited to, elasticity
through scaling resources up/down to track workload behavior, extensive
monitoring, failure mitigation, and energy optimizations. The two main
technologies enabling clouds are: (i) Virtualization, the foundation of clouds;
and (ii) manageability (autonomics), the command and control of clouds.
CloudComp is intended to bring together researchers, developers, and industry
professionals to discuss clouds, cloud computing and related ecosystems support.
To that end, papers are solicited from all cloud related areas, including, but
not limited to:
1. Cloud architectures and provisions to optimize providers’ environments while
guaranteeing clients’ SLAs.
2. Programming models, applications and middleware suitable for dynamic cloud
3. End-to-end techniques for autonomic management of cloud resources including
monitoring, asset management, process automation and others.
4. New cloud delivery models, models’ optimizations and associated architectural
5. New cloud economic and billing models.
6. Cloud security, privacy and compliance challenges.
7. Toolkits, frameworks and processes to enable clouds and allow seamless
transitions from traditional IT environments to clouds.
8. Experiences with existing cloud infrastructure, services and uses.
9. Novel human interfaces and browsers for accessing clouds.
10.Interaction of mobile computing, mCommerce and Clouds.
Cloud Computing conference is sponsored by ICST (Institute for Computer
Sciences, Social-Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering).
