Cloud Computing: Project and Initiatives - 2011

Bordeaux, France

August 30, 2011 – August 30, 2011

Collocated with: Euro-Par 2011 International Conference

Cloud Computing: Project and Initiatives (Second Edition)

Workshop Co-Chairs

Beniamino Di Martino, Second University of Naples, Italy
Dana Petcu , Western University of Timisoara, Romania

The Cloud computing represents one of the most challenging technological fields both for academic and business. Several projects are contributing to its rapid development, witnessing the great interest of the research community on one side, and of the users on the other. The workshop aims to be a forum for exchanging ideas on different Cloud computing related topics and finding synergies between projects tackling similar challenges. Getting insight in on-going Cloud-related projects will facilitate the exchanges of information among the researchers and will enhance the communication of research results, avoiding unwanted duplication. Despite different backgrounds and challenging different issues, several topics are relevant for all projects and strengthen their cooperation and joining the forces is a valuable exercise.


Main topics:

- Clouds federation
- Clouds interoperability
- Cloud programming
- Cloud computing standards
- HPC and cluster at demand
- Cloud at home
- Cloud delivery models
- Cloud-based applications
- Cloud middleware
- Cloud security
