The 3rd Workshop on Applications and Services on Cloud (ASOC 2011)
(October 19-21, 2011, Beijing, China, in conjunction with ICEBE 2011)

Cloud Computing is a paradigm where pool of applications and computing resources are made available to users in an on-demand manner with minimal administrative effort. Today, companies are using the Cloud to take advantage of the benefits that Cloud Computing has demonstrated, namely scalability, flexibility, automation and resource sharing. Indeed, Cloud Computing transforms existing business models and nurtures new business models by delivering new types of cloud-enabled applications and services. It raises challenges and opportunities collectively for both academia and industry to study, design, prove, scale and manage the applications and services enabled by Cloud Computing.

ASOC 2011, collocated with ICEBE 2011, would be held in Beijing, China in October 19-21, 2011. This year, the main theme is smart cloud services. It will offer a prestigious forum for scientists and practitioners in academia, industry and government to share their knowledge, best practices, and visions, to identify new challenges and opportunties, and to present their latest research findings in the aspect of cloud-enabled services.

This workshop solicits paper submissions from both academia and practitioners in a wide range of related topics in cloud computing. Topics include but not limited to, the following:

  • Pulic Cloud computing platform for consumers
  • Private Cloud computing platform for enterprise
  • Hybrid Cloud computing platforms
  • Cloud service orchestration and management
  • Economics of Cloud services, new business models, service ecosystems
  • Emerging special cloud domains such as green, healthcare, living services
  • Discovery and identification of Cloud ready apps
  • Migration of apps/services into the Cloud
  • Interoperability between heterogeous and homogeneous Clouds
  • Novel business processes, applications and services on Cloud
  • Application programming models in cloud environments
  • Cloud apps/service mash-up
