Announcement: The 11th International Conference on Cloud Computing(Cloud 2018) will be held on June 25-30, 2018, Seattle, USA.

CLOUD 2017 Short Paper Track

We are planning a highly interactive and participatory meeting for discussing new ideas, maybe work in progress. Our Short Paper Track is 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 papers will be published in a special section of the CLOUD 2017 Conference Proceedings in both CD-ROM version and online version in the digital library of IEEE Computer Society. Please follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers.

Submitted manuscripts will be limited to 4 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages and REQUIRED to be formatted using the IEEE Proceedings template. Unformatted papers and papers beyond 4 pages will NOT be reviewed. Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF format) is required. Detailed instructions for electronic paper preparation and submission can be found at Submission Section.

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 Short 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 2017.

Short Paper Submission:

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 four pages. Submissions that exceed this size will be returned without reviewing.

Please use the dedicated CLOUD 2017 Short Paper Conference Management System to submit your short papers to CLOUD 2017.
