IC2E 2016 Call for Contributions

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.

Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished work, not currently under review by another conference or journal, are solicited. The conference is interested in both research contributions and industrial experiences in any of the areas associated with cloud architectures, services, development, and operations. Technical papers that take a broad systems perspective and identify how the work fits to an overall solution are particularly of interest.  

IC2E 2016 solicits submissions for the programs and events listed below.
  • Research papers
  • Industrial papers
  • Tutorial proposals
  • Panel proposals
  • Doctoral symposium contributions
  • Workshop proposals
We invite submissions of high quality contributions describing fully developed results or on-going foundational and applied work relating to all aspects of cloud engineering defined broadly, including
  • 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
  • Software engineering methodology and practices for cloud computing
  • Hybrid cloud integration
  • Service lifecycle management
  • Service management automation
  • Metering, pricing, and software licensing
  • Cloud applications

We particularly encourage submissions on topics of emerging interest in the research and development communities. Proposals for accompanying workshops are also solicited on topics that demand dedicated coverage due to their relevance to the current data management research and development. The program will also include industrial presentations, a doctoral symposium, and keynote and invited talks by leaders in academia and industry, including a "Cloud Summit". All aspects of the submission and notification process will be handled electronically. Refer to the respective calls for papers for detailed submission information.
