Cloud Computing: Project and Initiatives - 2010



Cloud Computing: Project and Initiatives

August 31st - Semptember 3rd, 2010 - Ischia, Naples - Italy
To be held in conjunction with: Euro-Par 2010 International Conference

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

Paper Submission Guidelines:

Full papers should not exceed 12 pages in the Springer LNCS style. Paper submission has to be performed electronically via the conference website in PDF format. Papers accepted for publication must also be supplied in source form (Latex or Word). Paper must offer original contributions regarding the theory and practice of parallel and distributed computing.
