*IEEE First International Workshop on

Cloud Federation Management:
Identity, Resources and Applications (CFM:IRA 2014)


*As part of the **7^th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and 
Cloud Computing (UCC 2014)
December 8-11, 2014 -- London, UK*

*Scope, Participants, and Objectives:*

This workshop will explore the fundamental concepts, design options, and 
challenges for managing cloud federations.Cloud federation involves all 
levels of the cloud system software stack, e.g., identity, resources, 
and applications.Across all of these areas, though, secure federation 
management is a key issue, i.e., how federations are initiated, how 
trust is established, how policies are decided and enforced, either 
unilaterally or jointly, etc.Effectively addressing these issues will 
entail not only an enormous amount of technical work, but also an 
enormous amount of cultural adaptation to fully realize the benefits of 
cloud federation.

There is an increasing awareness that cloud federation is a fundamental 
capability and necessary prerequisite to enabling the kind of global 
"inter-cloud" that many associate with being "in the cloud".The 
international scientific community has long recognized the need for 
federation management across operational grids.In 2011, the US 
Government Cloud Computing Technology Roadmap identified ten 
high-priority requirements for cloud computing, including "Frameworks to 
Support Federated Community Clouds", to manage interactions and 
collaborations across many different government agencies.Cloud 
federation across international boundaries has also been recognized, 
most notably for the secure, on-demand sharing of data for international 
disaster response efforts.Cloud federation will also enable a wide range 
of business-to-business interactions, such as supply chain management 
and even feature film production. Hence, participation from across all 
of these sectors is expected and encouraged.

Beyond paper presentations, the objective of this workshop is to engage 
technology producers, consumers, and funding agencies in realizing the 
future of cloud federation management.

  * Federated Identity Management
  * Federated Resource Management

*Paper Submissions:*

Authors are invited to submit papers electronically through /EasyChair 

All accepted workshop papers will be published as part of the UCC 
conference proceedings.Workshop papers have a maximum of 6 pages in 
length in IEEE format.At least one author of each paper must register 
for the workshop.Submitted papers must represent original unpublished 
research that is not currently under review for any other conference or
