CLOUD 2011 Work-in-Progress Track

Cloud Computing has become a scalable services consumption and 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). 

CLOUD 2011 will be co-located with the 7th IEEE 2010 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2011), the 9th IEEE 2010 International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2011), and the 8th IEEE 2010 International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2011) to grow itself to continue to be the most prestigious professional conference dedicated to cloud computing.

We are planning a highly interactive and participatory meeting, with ample room for discussing new ideas, work in progress, and thesis and dissertations. Our Work-in-Progress Session will be carefully planned to achieve this goal. It will be fully integrated with the conference program, centering on providing a forum for researchers and industry practitioners to discuss their on-going research and projects in the field of cloud computing.

Accepted submissions and presented papers will be published in a special section of the CLOUD 2011 Conference Proceedings in both CD-ROM version and online version by the IEEE Computer Society. Please follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers.

Purpose and Scope

This session provides a forum for attendees to illustrate and discuss their latest cloud computing related plans, projects, and advances, even when implementation or deployment has not been fully completed. However, the work should be advanced enough as to allow attendees to appreciate its scope and significance. Submissions may target on any topic related to the conference, describing on-going work at your institution. The Work-in-Progress papers will be an important way of sharing what is happening in cloud computing research and applications, so please feel free to submit your papers to CLOUD 2011.

Work-in-Progress Session Schedule and Details

The Work-in-Progress Session provides a two-way presentation form. Each presenter is required to set up a poster-board presentation complementing with a short oral presentation (10 minutes) highlighting the uniqueness of their on-going work. Presenters are required to set up their poster-board presentations at least 2 hours before the official start time of the Session, which will be announced with the final Conference Program.

The size of poster-board displays should be no larger than 3 x 4 feet. Easels will be supplied for display. Presenters must furnish all other supplies necessary to display their work.

Paper Submission Procedures:

Submit a PDF or MSWord file following the IEEE format (IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines). The uploaded document must be no longer than two pages. Submissions that exceed this size will be returned without reviewing.

Work-in-Progress Paper Submission:
