*2nd IEEE International Workshop on Cloud Analytics*
Tempe, Arizona
March 9-13, 2015 (Exact date TBD)
Held in conjunction with the International Conference on Cloud Engineering
(IC2E) 2015

Submission Deadline: Sunday December 7, 2014

Clouds have become popular platforms for running big data applications, but
cloud data centers are also sources of vast amounts of information about
the client workloads, applications, servers, and networks within them. This
data includes server utilization traces, application logs, reliability
measurements, and security audit records, all of which can provide valuable
information to both cloud providers and tenants. Given the scale of cloud
deployments, systematic analytical approaches are critically needed to
provide insights about these types of cloud data in order to improve the
performance, efficiency, and resiliency of cloud platforms.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers with
expertise ranging from modeling to systems architecture to exchange ideas,
and share their experiences in developing analytics to better deploy,
operate and use the cloud. Specifically, we wish to foster research
contributions that draw on statistical analysis, analytical modeling, and
machine learning to develop novel solutions applicable to management in
cloud data centers.

Topics of interest include:

    Cloud workload measurement and analysis
    Workload behavior modeling
    Analytics for application deployment in cloud
    Performance modeling of cloud applications
    Cloud performance benchmarking

Paper Submission:

The IWCA workshop invites authors to submit original and unpublished work.
Papers should not exceed 6 pages in IEEE style (single-spaced 2-column text
using 10-point size type on 8.5" x 11" paper). Authors should submit a
PostScript (level 2) or PDF file that will print on a PostScript printer.
