2015 International Conference on Cloud Computing and Big Data (CloudCom-Asia 2015)

June 17-19, 2015 -  Huangshan, China

Submission Deadline: February 8, 2015

Important Dates
Paper submission:  Feb. 8th, 2015 (extended firm deadline)
First round notification: Mar. 1st, 2015
Revised version due: Mar. 15th, 2015
Second round notification: Apr. 15th, 2015

"Cloud" is a common metaphor for an Internet accessible infrastructure (e.g. data storage and computing hardware) which is hidden from users. Cloud Computing makes data truly mobile and a user can simply access a chosen cloud with any internet accessible device. In Cloud Computing, IT-related capabilities are provided as services, accessible without requiring detailed knowledge of the underlying technology. Thus, many mature technologies are used as components in Cloud Computing, but still there are many unresolved and open problems. CloudCom-Asia 2015 aims to bring together researchers who work on cloud computing and related technologies.

Topics of interest of the CloudCom-Asia 2015 conference include, but are not limited to:
- Cloud Architecture
- Big Data
- Virtulaization
- MapReduce, and other PaaS aspects
- Cloud Services and Applications
- Security and Privacy in Cloud
- HPC on Cloud
- IoT and Mobile on Cloud

Submission Guidelines
Submission link:

All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by the program committee members. Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience (CCPE, SCI indexed) and Journal of Supercomputing (SCI indexed) have confirmed to support the publication of CloudCom-Asia 2015 papers. Based on the review results, top-ranked accepted conference papers will be published by the two journals. Other accepted conference papers with good quality, together with all of the accepted workshop papers, will be published in conference proceedings, in LNCS.

At least one author of all the accepted papers should register and give a presentation in the conference.



IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E) 2015

Tempe, Arizona, USA
March 9-12, 2015
(in cooperation with ACM SIGMOD)



The IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E) conference series
seeks to provide a high-quality and comprehensive forum, where researchers and
practitioners 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 offers 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 2015 provides an excellent mix of technical presentations. In addition to research
industrial paper presentations, there will be two keynote speeches
*     Youngchoon Park; Director of Technologies, Johnson Controls, Inc.
*     Douglas Terry; Distinguished Research Engineer at Samsung Research America

The program also includes 5 tutorials
*     The Social Internet of Things
*     A Hands on Apache Storm Tutorial: for beginners to advanced users
*     An Introduction to Cloud Benchmarking
*     MobiSocial (Mobile and Social) Data Management
*     NoSQL Databases two panels
*    Cloud Sustainability
*    Cloud and Internet-of-Things and industrial practitioners' talks covering timely topics.

This year's IC2E event also includes a doctoral symposium and six affiliated workshops focusing on cutting-edge topics that are relevant to the current cloud engineering research and development.  
*    International Workshop on the Future of PaaS
*    International Workshop on Software Defined Systems
*    International Workshop on Cloud Computing Interclouds, Multiclouds, Federations, and Interoperability
*    International workshop on Legal and Technical Issues in Cloud Computing
*    International Workshop on Cloud Analytics
*    International Workshop on Container Technologies and Container Clouds

The conference will be held  at the Tempe Campus of the Arizona State  University.
Tempe, AZ promises a breathtaking setting. Adjacent to Phoenix, the fifth most populated city in the United States, many attractions, parks, and recreational areas  - including the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Petrified Forest, and Painted Desert - are within a short distance.  

We cordially invite you to participate in this event.

IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing
Special Issue on Many-Task Computing in the Cloud

The Special Issue on Many-Task Computing (MTC) in the Cloud will provide the scientific community a dedicated forum, within the prestigious IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing journal, for presenting new research, development, and deployment efforts of loosely coupled large scale applications on Cloud Computing infrastructure. MTC, the theme of this special issue, encompasses loosely coupled applications, which are generally composed of many tasks to achieve some larger application goal. This special issue will cover challenges that can hamper efficiency and utilization in running applications on large-scale systems, such as local resource manager scalability and granularity, efficient utilization of raw hardware, parallel file-system contention and scalability, data management, I/O management, reliability at scale, and application scalability. We welcome paper submissions in theoretical, simulations, and systems topics with special consideration to papers addressing the intersection of petascale/exascale challenges with large-scale cloud computing. We seek submission of papers that present new, original and innovative ideas for the "first" time in TCC (Transactions on Cloud Computing). That means, submission of "extended versions" of already published works (e.g., conference/workshop papers) is not encouraged unless they contain significant number of "new and original" ideas/contributions along with more than 49% brand "new" material. For more information on this special issue, please see

Topics of Interest
We seek submission of papers that present new, original and innovative ideas for the "first" time in TCC (Transactions on Cloud Computing). That means, submission of "extended versions" of already published works (e.g., conference/workshop papers) will only be encouraged if they contain significant number of "new and original" ideas/contributions along with more than 49% brand "new" material. TCC expects submissions to be complete in all respects including author names, affiliation, bios etc. We aim to cover topics related to Many-Task Computing on Clouds.

  • Compute resource management
  • Storage architectures and implementations
  • Programming models and tools
  • Large-scale workflow systems
  • Large-scale many-task applications
  • Performance evaluation
