Call for Papers:

IEEE Second International Workshop on Container Technologies and Container
Clouds  (WoC 2016)

April 4-8, 2016
Berlin, Germany
Held in conjunction with IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering
(IC2E) 2016

Containers are a lightweight OS-level virtualization abstraction primarily
based on namespace isolation and control groups. In the recent years,
container-based virtualization for applications has gained immense
popularity thanks to the success of technologies like Docker.  Container
packaging mechanisms like Docker, LXD and Rkt, as well as management
frameworks like Kubernetes, Mesos, etc., are witnessing widespread adoption
in the industry today.  Container technologies have eliminated the feature
parity between development and production environment by enabling
developers to package applications and their dependencies as a single unit
that can be run across diverse operating environments.
Though containers provide a great amount of flexibility and portability
from a developer's perspective, there are several important challenges that
need to be addressed by the infrastructure provider, in order to run these
virtualized applications in a cloud environment. The second workshop on
container technologies and container clouds solicits contributions in this
area from researchers and practitioners in both the academia and industry.
The workshop welcomes submissions describing unpublished research, position
papers as well as deployment experiences on various topics related to
containers as outlined below:

Topics of interested include but are not limited to:

—Security, isolation and performance of containers
—Network architectures for multi-host container deployments
—Orchestration models for cloud scale deployments
—High availability systems for containerized workloads
—Leveraging hardware support for containers and containerized workloads
—Migrating and optimizing traditional workloads for containers
—Operational issues surrounding management of large clusters of containers
—Container use cases and challenges for HPC, Big Data and IoT applications
—Other topics relevant to containers

Submissions are single blind and should follow the IEEE conference
guidelines for formatting. They can be in one of the two formats: a
traditional 5 page paper (excluding references) or a 1-2 page extended
abstract/proposal for operational experiences and position pieces. The
category of submission (paper or extended abstract) should be mentioned in
the title. Please upload your papers in PDF form to easychair.
Submissions will be judged on novelty, relevance, clarity of presentation,
and correctness.  Authors of accepted submissions are required to present
their work. Accepted papers and abstracts will be made available in the
conference website at least one week before the workshop, so that the
participants can come prepared having read the papers. Accepted submissions
will also be made available via IEEExplore.
