     Call for Papers
IEEE International Workshop on
Cloud Computing Systems, Networks, and Applications (CCSNA)
Organized in conjunction with
IEEE Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM 2014) 
8-12 December 2014, Austin, Texas, USA
Workshop web: http://cloud.it.teithe.gr/ 
EDAS submission web link: https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=17545
Paper submission deadline: July 15, 2014
Cloud Computing, as well as Cloud-inspired business models, enable
on-demand access to a shared pool of resources, namely computing, storage,
networks, services, and applications. With the advent of Cloud-based
systems, cloud operators have been aiming at reliable, secured,
privacy-preserving and cost-efficient cloud design and management. As the
Cloud infrastructure aims at offering various IT resources as services,
requirements of Cloud applications vary based on the resources which are
requested as services. Thus, the resources may refer to heavy computation
resources, massive storage resources, high-capacity network resources and
so on. The heterogeneity of cloud applications leads to the challenge of
holistic design of a robust Cloud system which can oversee and handle the
diverse needs of numerous types of applications. On the other hand, these
challenges enforce cooperation of various players in the Cloud system,
each of which focuses on a
 different segment such as network, computing, applications, and systems.
The Second International workshop on Cloud Computing Systems, Networks,
and Applications (CCSNA-2014) aims at the crossroads between scientists,
researchers, practitioners and students from diverse domains in Cloud
computing research. The workshop aims at attracting contributions of
system and network design that can support existing and future
applications and services. Researchers are encouraged to submit original
research contributions in all major areas, which include, but not limited

Submission Procedure
Submitted papers must represent original material which is not currently
under review in any other conference or journal and has not been
previously published. Paper length should not exceed five-page standard
IEEE conference two-column format(including all text, figures, and
references). Please see the Author Information page for submission
guidelines in the IEEE GLOBECOM 2014
website http://www.ieee-globecom.org. All submitted papers will go through
a peer review process. All accepted and presented papers will be included
in the IEEE GLOBECOM 2014 proceedings and IEEE digital library. IEEE
reserves the right to exclude an accepted and registered but not presented
paper from the IEEE digital library.  Selected papers will be invited to
be peer-reviewed for a special issue in an IEEE journal and another
journal special issue.
