Topics of Interest


The "Cloud" is a natural evolution of distributed computing and of the widespread adaption of virtualization and SOA. In Cloud Computing, IT-related capabilities and resources are provided as services, via the Internet and on-demand, accessible without requiring detailed knowledge of the underlying technology. The IEEE International Conference and Workshops on Cloud Computing Technology and Science, steered by the Cloud Computing Association, aim to bring together researchers who work on cloud computing and related technologies.

Conference themes include:

·         Cloud architecture

·         Big Data

·         Security and Privacy in the Cloud

·         Cloud services and Applications

·         Virtualization

·         HPC on Cloud

·         IoT and Mobile on Cloud

Live demos and poster sessions will be taking place at the conference on 3 and 5 December.

There will be a PhD Consortium and eight workshops co-located with CloudCom 2013, focusing on specific topics, as follows:

·         Cloud Computing for Research Collaborations (CRC) and Cloud Computing for Bioinformatics and its Applications (CBA)

·         ESC: Economics of Security in the Cloud

·         Requirements Engineering for Cloud Computing (RECC 2013)

·         UsiNg and buIlding ClOud Testbeds (UNICO)

·         Cloud Technologies and Trust Domains (CTTD)

·         International Workshop on Cloud Computing for Bioinformatics and Its Applications (CBA)

·         Network Infrastructure Services as part of Cloud Computing (NetCloud2013)

·         Industry Cloud Workshop

In addition, there will be two tutorials held as part of CloudCom 2013:

·         Tutorial on Hadoop

Social Events


·         Drinks reception and tours of the SS Great Britain - a museum and former passenger steamship, previously the longest passenger ship in the world, designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel for the transatlantic service between Bristol and New York. She was the first iron steamer to cross the Atlantic in 1845, in just 14 days.

·         Gala dinner at the Grand Pump Room and tour of the historic Roman town of Bath. Roman baths were part of the day-to-day life in Ancient Rome, and this is one of the best examples of a Roman bath complex in Europe.

·         Plus the additional opportunity of a trip to the Druid monument Stonehenge, one of the most famous sites in the world, Stonehenge is the remains of a ring of standing stones set within earthworks, raised between 2400 and 2200 BC.  It is in the middle of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred burial mounds.
