The 5th Workshop on Applications and Services on Cloud (ASOC 2013)
(September 11-13, 2013, Coventry, United Kingdom, in conjunction with ICEBE 2013)


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.
