IEEE Int'l Conference on Cloud Computing for Emerging Markets (CCEM)

25-27 November 2015
Bangalore, India

The 4th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing for Emerging Markets (CCEM) offers a forum for innovators, researchers, and students of cloud computing and its applications, topics which have emerged as a dominant and transformational paradigm in ICT affecting a multitude of institutions and industry-sectors such as government, finance, telecommunications, education, retail, energy and utilities, and transportation. Innovations span a number of areas including virtualization, networking, storage, security, management of cloud services, efficient interoperable cloud architectures, and design of cloud applications and services. This transformation has great implications for emerging markets that have the potential to leap frog mature markets in their adoption of cloud computing, combine cloud computing and mobile technologies to introduce unique services that can transform the lives of billions, drive a much larger scale of adoption, and challenge existing price points, while presenting unique challenges in areas such as security and user interfaces to cloud computing.

Program highlights include:

  • keynotes and invited talks;
  • paper presentations;
  • technology innovations and start-up showcase demos from startups, industries, and students;
  • masters and PhD thesis paper presentations;
  • tutorials on some of the latest relevant topics of interest.




We invite technical paper, tutorials, technology innovations demo submissions on all relevant topics, including:

  • design of cloud computing services, especially for emerging markets—infrastructure, platform, database, software, network, storage, e-governance, and business processes;
  • big data & predictive analytics;
  • social & mobile computing advances in the cloud;
  • Internet of Things enabled by cloud;
  • advances in virtualization of hardware and software services;
  • security, privacy, governance, and compliance management;
  • networking innovations;
  • programming models;
  • DevOps as well as monitoring, management, and maintenance in cloud computing environments;
  • performance optimization, and
  • legal aspects & service level agreements.







An invite only (submissions reviewed and qualified) pre-conference workshop is being organized to 5 July 2015 to enable potential paper submitters and technology innovation demonstraters to obtain professional review and feedback to improve their odds in the peer review and selection process. This workshop is designed to advise submitters on how to improve their odds in the peer review and selection of their work through the CCEM Technical Programme Committee while providing a great networking opportunity. Deadline for proposal submission for this workshop is 28 June 2015. 

Submission Information

Technical paper authors, tutorial proposers, as well as those interested in the technology innovation showcase show should follow the submission instructions available in The deadline for submission for the main conference is 7 August 2015.

IEEE Int'l Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E)
4-8 April 2016
Berlin, Germany

The 4th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E) seeks to provide a high-quality and comprehensive forum, where researchers and practitioners can exchange information on engineering principles, enabling technologies, and practical experiences 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, fosters research that addresses the interaction between different layers of the stack, and ultimately helps shape the future of cloud-transformed business and society.

We invite submissions of high-quality research papers describing fully developed results or on-going foundational and applied work related to all aspects of cloud engineering. The program committee will interpret “cloud engineering” very broadly - everything from engineering principles to practical experiences on different levels of the cloud stack. We particularly encourage submissions on topics of emerging interest in the research and development communities. We invite submissions on the following topics:

  • Big data management, platforms and analytics
  • Cloud applications and services
  • Cloud programming models, benchmarks, and tools
  • Cloud security, privacy, compliance, and trust
  • Energy management in cloud centers
  • Hybrid cloud integration
  • Metering, pricing, and software licensing
  • Mobile cloud computing
  • Performance, dependability, and service level agreements
  • Resource management and optimization in the cloud
  • Service lifecycle management and automation
  • Virtualization technology
  • Workload deployment and migration
  • X as a Service, where X includes Backend, Business Process, Database, Information, Infrastructure, Network, Platform, Security, Software, and Storage.
