We are pleased to welcome you to the 4th IEEE/ACM International Conference
on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC 2011), sponsored by the IEEE Computer
Society and the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), USA.

Computing is being transformed to a model consisting of services that are
commoditized and delivered in a manner similar to traditional utilities such
as water, electricity, gas, and telephony. In such a model, users access
services based on their requirements without regard to where the services
are hosted or how they are delivered. Several computing paradigms have
promised to deliver this utility computing vision and Cloud computing is the
most recent kid in the block, which is on its way to make the vision of
“computing utilities” a reality.

To provide a dedicated forum for sharing recent R&D advances and industrial
innovations in the area of Utility Computing, UCC--International Conference
on Utility and Cloud Computing—series, sponsored by IEEE/ACM, has been
initiated. This conference series has emerged out of several successful
Cloud computing events (Cloud 2009 held in Shanghai, China; Cloud 2010 held
in Melbourne, Australia; and UCC 2010 held in Chennai, India). UCC 2011, as
the 4th event in the series, focuses on principles, paradigms, and
applications of Utility Computing and its practical realization in industry,
especially in the form of Cloud Computing.

UCC is an important conference for the international community as it
provides a forum for Utility and Cloud Computing researchers, service
providers, developers, users, and those who want to become aware of the
progresses made in these areas.

The UCC 2011 conference is hosted as an independent event for the first
time. The city of Melbourne, as the 2011 world’s most-livable city in the
world, is the perfect location for convening internationally renowned
leaders from academia, government, and industry to present their work. We
are pleased with the response we received from researchers, developers, and
users of Cloud Computing technologies and applications from all over the

UCC 2011 features Keynote talks, Industry talks, Research papers, Workshops,
Tutorials, Posters, and Panel.
