Workshop on
Dependability and Interoperability in Heterogeneous Clouds (DIHC13)

in conjunction with

Euro-Par 2013
August 26-30, Aachen, Germany



The cloud computing market is in rapid expansion due to the 
opportunities to dynamically allocate a large amount of resources when 
needed and to pay only for their effective usage. However, many 
challenges, in terms of interoperability, performance guarantee, and 
dependability, still need to be addressed to make cloud computing the 
right solution for companies, research organizations, and universities.

The workshop aims at bringing together researchers from academia and 
industry interested in the design, implementation, and evaluation of 
services and mechanisms for dependable cloud computing in a multi-­cloud 


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Service Level Agreements in clouds
- Trust and reputation in cloud computing
- Security and privacy aspects in cloud computing
- Risk assessment and management in cloud computing
- Availability of cloud services
- Reliable cloud computing
- Dependable performance for cloud applications
- Federation of heterogeneous clouds
- Interoperability
- Resource Management
- Business models for IaaS and PaaS
- Cloud standards and best practices


Authors are invited to submit original papers, that have not been 
published in or submitted to other workshops, conferences or journals. 
Submitted papers must be written in English, formatted according to the 
LNCS guidelines, and they must not exceed 10 pages. Paper submission
