The 4th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E) seeks to provide a high-quality and comprehensive forum, where researchers and practitioners can exchange information on engineering principles, enabling technologies, and practical experiences related to cloud computing. By bringing together experts that work on different levels of the cloud stack - systems, storage, networking, platforms, databases, and applications, IC2E offers an end-to-end view on the challenges and technologies in cloud computing, fosters research that addresses the interaction between different layers of the stack, and ultimately helps shape the future of cloud-transformed business and society.
We invite submissions of high-quality research papers describing fully developed results or on-going foundational and applied work related to all aspects of cloud engineering. The program committee will interpret cloud engineering very broadly - everything from engineering principles to practical experiences on different levels of the cloud stack. We particularly encourage submissions on topics of emerging interest in the research and development communities.
We invite submissions on the following topics:
- Big data management, platforms and analytics
- Cloud applications and services
- Cloud programming models, benchmarks, and tools
- Software engineering methodology and practices for cloud computing
- Cloud security, privacy, compliance, and trust
- Energy management in cloud centers
- Hybrid cloud integration
- Metering, pricing, and software licensing
- Mobile cloud computing
- Performance, dependability, and service level agreements
- Resource management and optimization in the cloud
- Service lifecycle management and automation
- Virtualization technology
- Workload deployment and migration
- X as a Service, where X includes Backend, Business Process, Database, Information, Infrastructure, Network, Platform, Security, Software, and Storage
Review process and publication
- Please submit full (and short) papers by September 14th, 2015 (extended deadline) in PDF format via the web submission form (https://hotcrp.doc.ic.ac.uk/ic2e16)
- Full research track papers should not exceed 10 pages double column, including figures, tables, and references; short papers are limited to 6 pages. Short papers should be clearly marked as such in the title.
- Submissions must be in the standard IEEE format for conference proceedings - see the style templates for details.
- All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference scope. Submitted manuscripts must contain original contributions, and their contributions must NOT have appeared in or be under consideration for publication in another workshop, conference, or journal.
- After review, some submissions may be offered to be published as a short paper (6 pages) or a poster (2 pages).
- Accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services (EI indexed).
