Call for Papers

The technology industry and the scientific community have taken great
strides in recent years toward implementing the technological paradigm
of Cloud Computing (CC). This has resulted in the rapid growth of
platforms, both private and public. There is not little doubt that the
general social acceptance of this paradigm has in large part led to
its development, due to the economic interests of large technology
companies that underlie the purely technical aspects. From an external
point of view, the CC platforms offer three well known types of
services (software, platform and infrastructure), where novelty, with
respect to previous technologies, lies in the ability to offer any
type of computing ability as a service through the Internet.
New possibilities at a technological level lead to the birth of a new
concept, elasticity. This concept is based on the just-in-time
production method, which references the manner in which the services
(computational) and the resources they require are produced. Thus, the
services produced within the framework of CC only receive the amount
of resources they need to maintain a uniform level of quality while
immediately responding to demand.
This track provides an international forum to present and discuss the
latest scientific developments and their effective applications, to
assess the impact of the approach, and to facilitate technology
transfer. This track provides a framework to present, to discuss, and
to disseminate the latest developments and the most important outcomes
related to Cloud Computing

Topics of Interest

>From technology foundation perspective, Services Computing has become
the default discipline in the modern services industry. The track will
promote a forum to discuss this emerging enabling technology of the
modern services industry and to explores modern services and software
sciences in the field of Services Computing.

This track intends to bring together researchers and developers from
industry and the academic world to report on the latest scientific and
technical advances on the application of Cloud Computing, to discuss
and debate the major issues, and to showcase the latest systems.

Some of the topics that will be dealt with under the track on
Intelligent Information Fusion are (but not limited to):

* Cloud Services

Service composition, workflows, coordination and cooperation
Service-based data integration
Service publishing and discovery
Service search engine and recommendation
Service orchestration
Quality-of-Service Management
Service evaluation and prediction
Service level agreements
Semantic web services
Federated services
Intelligent and adaptative systems

* Applications and platforms

Internet of things
Grid and utility
XaaS (Something as a service)
Big Data
Social Network
Mobile Web
Access control
Scalability and Availability
Middleware frameworks

* Infrastructure

Virtualization and Elasticity.
Adaptive storage models.
