[Scope and Topics]

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) is a new
conference that 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Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished work, not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. Topics include, but are not limited to, the

    * Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)
    * Platform as a service (PaaS)
    * Database as a service (DaaS)
    * Software as a service (SaaS)
    * Network as a service (NaaS)
    * Business process as a service (BPaaS)
    * Security as a service
    * Storage as a service
    * Information as a service
    * Big data management and analytic
    * Virtualization technology
    * Performance, dependability and service level agreements
    * Cloud security, privacy, and compliance management
    * Workload deployment and migration
    * Energy management in cloud centers
    * Cloud programming models and tools
    * Hybrid cloud integration
    * Service lifecycle management
    * Service management automation
    * Metering, pricing, and software licensing

[Paper Submissions]

Manuscripts should be prepared in 10-point font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11"
two-column format (http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting). The
length of a paper must not exceed 10 pages. Authors should submit a PDF
version of their paper electronically at
https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/IC2E2013/. All papers selected for this
conference are peer-reviewed and will be published by the IEEE Computer
Society Conference Publishing Services. The best papers presented in the
conference will be selected for a journal special issue.
