IEEE Cloud Computing – Special Issue on Cloud Engineering
  • Submission deadline: April 15, 2015
  • Publication date: September/October, 2015
Cloud computing has emerged as a new paradigm for the use and delivery of information technology (IT), and is revolutionizing the support of on-demand access, economies of scale, and dynamic sourcing options. In the cloud context, a wide range of IT resources and capabilities, including servers, networking, storage, middleware, data, security, applications, and business processes, are available as services enabled for rapid provisioning, flexible pricing, elastic scaling, and resilience. These new forms of IT services are challenging conventional wisdom and practices. Fully reaping the benefits of cloud computing calls for holistic treatment of key technical and business issues, as well as for engineering methodology that draws upon innovations from diverse areas of computer science and business informatics. This special issue focused on Cloud Engineering seeks to provide a compilation of high-quality papers by researchers and practitioners involved in the development of cloud infrastructure and applications. We invite original, high-quality contributions, foundational as well as applied, describing fully developed or on-going work relating to all aspects of cloud engineering. In addition to research papers, experience reports, surveys, critical evaluations of the state of the art, and insightful analysis of established or up-coming technologies are welcome.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

• X as a Service, where X includes Backend, Business Process, Database, Information, Infrastructure, Network, Platform, Security, Software, and Storage
• Big data management and analytics
• Mobile cloud computing
• Virtualization technology
• Performance, dependability, and service level agreements
• Cloud security, privacy, compliance, and trust
• Workload deployment and migration
• Energy management in cloud centers
• Cloud programming models and tools
• Hybrid cloud integration
• Service lifecycle management
• Service management automation
• Metering, pricing, and software licensing
• Cloud applications
