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. To fully reap the benefits of the cloud service model requires holistic treatment of key technical and business issues, and engineering methodology that draws upon innovations in diverse areas of computer science and business informatics.
The IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E) seeks to provide a high-quality and comprehensive forum, where researchers and practitioners involved in the development of cloud infrastructure and applications can exchange information on engineering principles, enabling technologies, and practical experiences as 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 will offer an end-to-end view on the challenges and technologies in cloud computing, foster research that addresses the interaction between different layers of the stack, and ultimately help shape the future of cloud-transformed business and society.
IC2E 2018 solicits submissions for the following programs and events, whose calls are available on separate web pages. A Doctoral Symposium is also planned for the conference.
