The 1st Workshop on Applications and Services on Cloud (ASOC 09)
(October 21-23, 2009, Macau, China, in conjunction with ICEBE 2009)

Cloud Computing promises to significantly reduce the cost of IT infrastructure, application hosting and service provisioning by several orders of magnitude. Further, it also enables new business models with new types of service paradigms and applications. Potentially it could change the IT industry by transforming the approach of delivering IT-enabled services. Indeed, it creates a collection of challenges and opportunities for both academic and industry when creating and managing cloud-enabled applications and services.

ASOC 2009, collocated with ICEBE 2009, would be held in Macau in October 21-23, 2009. This year, the main theme is cloud-enabled services. It will offer a prestigious forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry and government to share experiences and visions, to identify new challenges and issues, and to present their latest research findings in aspect of Cloud-enabled services.

The workshop solicits paper submissions from both academia and practitioners in a wide range of related topics, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Economics of Cloud services, new business models, service eco systems
  • Emerging special cloud domains such as green, healthcare, living services
  • Transition and migration of apps from corporate environments to the Cloud
  • Interoperability between corporate infrastructure and Clouds
  • Novel business processes, applications and services on Cloud
  • Application programming models in cloud environments
  • Cloud application and service mash-up
  • Best practices, use cases and non-functional issues such as security & privacy
  • Quality, governance and compliance of services
Papers must be submitted electronically via the ASOC09 Paper Submission Site (https://www.easychair.org/login.cgi?conf=asoc09). The format of submitted papers should follow the guidelines for the IEEE conference proceedings, limited to 6 pages. All papers will be peer reviewed by at least three reviewers.
