“Change we can lead” is the theme of CLOUD 2009.
CLOUD 2009 is the identified hot-topic conference by the 2009 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2009). The two well-established theme conferences identified by SERVICES 2009 are the 2009 IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2009) in July 2009 in USA and the 2009 IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2009) in September 2009 in India.
Cloud Computing has become a scalable services delivery platform in the field of Services Computing.
The technical foundations of Cloud Computing include Service-Oriented
Architecture (SOA) and Virtualizations of hardware and software. The
goal of Cloud Computing is to share resources among the cloud service
consumers, cloud partners, and cloud vendors in the cloud value chain.
The resource sharing at various levels results in various cloud
offerings such as infrastructure cloud (e.g. hardware, IT
infrastructure management), software cloud (e.g. SaaS focusing on
middleware as a service, or traditional CRM as a service), application
cloud (e.g. Application as a Service, UML modeling tools as a service,
social network as a service), and business cloud (e.g. business process
as a service).
In the fast growing Services Computing community, we have launched a series of events to promote and grow Cloud Computing in the past years. In 2002, we promoted Business Grid to share business processes and applications. In early 2008, The IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC) has adopted Cloud Computing to be included in the taxonomy as a body of knowledge area of Services Computing. In July 2008, the IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2008) has delivered a keynote panel “Business Cloud: Bridging The Power of SOA and Cloud Computing” and a keynote “Cloud Computing”. In September 2008, the 2008 IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2008) has delivered a keynote “Web Services: Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Communication, and Beyond” and a panel "Cloud Computing and IT as a Service: Opportunities and Challenges" to further motivate the community members to define Cloud Computing in various areas.
Based on the technology foundations and industry driving forces, the 2009 International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2009) is created to provide a prime international forum for both researchers and industry practitioners to exchange the latest fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice of Cloud Computing, identify emerging research topics, and define the future of Cloud Computing.
CLOUD 2009 is the HOT-TOPIC conference highlighted in the 2009 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2009), which is jointly sponsored by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Services Computing (TC-SVC) and Services Society. CLOUD 2009 will be co-located with the 7th IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2009).
To discuss this emerging enabling technology of the modern services industry, CLOUD 2009 invites you to join the seventh year’s gathering that explores "Services" Science and Technology in the field of Services Computing, which was formally promoted by IEEE Computer Society since 2003. From technology foundation perspective, Services Computing has become the default discipline in the modern services industry.
