Dear Colleagues,
Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP.

           The Third International Workshop on Dependability of Clouds, 
              Data Centers and Virtual Machine Technology (DCDV 2013)

                             in conjunction with

              The 43rd Annual IEEE/IFIP International Conference on 
                   Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN 2013)
                        June 24, 2013 Budapest, Hungary

                                 CALL FOR PAPERS


Cloud computing can be characterized as the culmination of the integration of computing and data infrastructures to provide a scalable, agile and cost-effective approach to support the ever-growing critical IT needs of both enterprises and the general public.
Massive data centers providing storage and processing power with fast network connect- -ivity form the core of the support infrastructure for the cloud. It is thus imperative that we get the cloud and consequently the underlying data center infrastructure right so that both the deployment, operation and maintenance of the infrastructure is efficient, cost-effective and meets the performance, dependability and security requirements.

The Third International Workshop on Dependability of Clouds, Data Centers and Virtual Machine Technology (DCDV 2013) will bring together academics and industry practitioners in order to share experiences, discuss existing state-of-the-art and set directions for future research and evolution for this dynamic and rapidly evolving field.

Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

* Architecture and design of clouds and data centers for dependability
* Faults, failure diagnosis, and recovery issues in clouds and data centers
* Dependability challenges and solutions for cloud users and cloud providers
* Dependability and security of virtual machine and multicore technology
* Dependability metrics, analysis, and evaluation for clouds and data centers
* Assured services, protocols and standards for clouds
* Dependability benchmarking and measurements in clouds and data centers
* Security and privacy issues in clouds and data centers
* Sustainability issues and energy management in clouds/data centers
* Trust, policy management and regulatory compliance issues
