Cloud Networking has emerged as a promising direction for cost-efficient and
reliable service delivery across data communication networks. The dynamic
location of  service  facilities  and the  virtualization of hardware and
software elements are  stressing the communication network and protocols,
especially when data centers are interconnected through the Internet.
Although the "computing" aspects of Cloud technologies have been largely
investigated, lower attention  has been devoted to the "networking" aspects.
The  3rd IEEE  International  Conference on Cloud Networking  (IEEE CloudNet
2014),  part  of  the  IEEE  Cloud  Computing Initiative, precisely
addresses these aspects.

Conference topics include (but are not limited to):

- Data Center Network Management, Reliability, Optimization
- Distributed Data Center Architectures and Services, IaaS, PaaS, SaaS
- Energy-Efficient Datacenters and Networks
- Big Data Management
- Internet Routing of Cloud data
- Virtual Ethernet Switching, Data Center Bridging
- Cloud Traffic Characterization and Measurements
- Intra-Cloud vs Inter-Cloud Management
- Cloud Traffic Engineering and Control-Plane Architectures
- Green Data Centers and Cloud Networking
- Security, Privacy, and Confidentiality in Cloud Networking
- Virtualization of Network Equipment
- Unified User and Machine Mobility Management
- Data Flow Management and Load Balancing
- Mobile Cloud Networking
- Cloud Federation and Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure
- Storage Area Networks, Optical Interconnect, Fiber Channels
- Content and Service Distribution


DIMENSION DATA (Platinum), TELINDUS (Gold), BULL (Silver), EBRC (Bronze),
in collaboration with CROSSFIRE, LUXINNOVATION

Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers for
publication in the IEEE CLOUDNET 2014 Conference Proceedings.

All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of
six (6) single-spaced, double-column pages without incurring additional page
charges. One (1) additional page is allowed with a charge of USD100, if

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and
submitted to IEEExplore.

The best accepted paper will receive Best Paper Award.


Submitted demos and posters short papers should be written in English and
follow IEEE formatting guidelines with a maximum length of three (3) pages.
All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three experts. Accepted
short papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted
to IEEExplore, provided that at least one of the authors registers at full
rate and performs presentation at the conference.
If you would like to present a demo, and don’t have time to write a
companion paper, please submit a synthetic proposal to Posters and Demos
Chairs Sebastien Varrette (sebastien.varrette at uni.lu) and Stefano Giordano
