CLOUD 2013 Research 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 2013 tries to attract researchers, practitioners, and industry business leaders in all the following areas to help define and shape cloud computing, and its related modernization strategy and directions of the services industry. You are invited to submit research papers to the following areas:

- Cloud Computing Architectures and Cloud Solution Design Patterns
- Infrastructure, Platform, Application, Business, Social, and Mobile Clouds
- Storage, Data, and Analytics Clouds
- Self-service Cloud Portal, Dashboard, and Analytics
- Security, Privacy, and Compliance Management for Public, Private, and Hybrid Clouds
