6th Cloud Control Workshop, Dec 8-11 (one day), 2014

The 6th Cloud Control Workshop is aimed to foster multidisciplinary
research in cloud management, or Cloud Control, leveraging expertise in
areas such as distributed systems, control theory, autonomic computing,
systems management, mathematical statistics, energy management, performance
management, and many more. By providing an understanding of the research
challenges ahead and by fostering multi-disciplinary research
collaborations, the ambition is to shape the future of cloud management.
Expected attendees are leading researchers from any scientific discipline
with potential to contribute to this multidisciplinary topic.

Workshop Format
For the first time in this workshop series, the workshop is open for
contributed papers. The workshop will include invited and contributed
presentations as well as discussion sessions.

The 6th Cloud Control Workshop will be held during one day in conjunction
with the 7th IEEE/ACM Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC 2014).
Accepted papers will be published in the main UCC 2014 proceedings,
published by the IEEE Computer Society, USA, and made available online
through the IEEE Digital Library.

The workshop will take place on some day(s) during the UCC 2014 conference.
Workshop attendance requires UCC 2014 registration, which gives admission
to all UCC 2014 activities, including all workshops.
