5th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E 2017)
April 4-7, 2017, Vancouver, Canada

The 5th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E) seeks to
provide a high-quality and comprehensive forum, where researchers and
practitioners can exchange information on engineering principles, enabling
technologies, and practical experiences related to cloud computing. By
bringing together experts that work on different levels of the cloud stack
- systems, storage, networking, platforms, databases, and applications,
IC2E offers an end-to-end view on the challenges and technologies in cloud
computing, fosters research that addresses the interaction between
different layers of the stack, and ultimately helps shape the future of
cloud-transformed business and society. We seek high-quality submissions
for both a research track and an industrial track, as described in the call
for papers below.


Important Dates
Abstract submission deadline: August 29, 2016, 23:59 GMT
Paper submission deadline:  September 5, 2016, 23:59 GMT
Author notification:  December 5, 2016
Camera-ready deadline: January 15, 2017

We invite submissions of high-quality research papers describing
fully-developed results, and ongoing foundational and applied work related
to all aspects of cloud engineering. The program committee will interpret
“cloud engineering” very broadly—everything from engineering principles to
practical experiences, at and across different levels of the cloud stack,
from both academia and industry. We particularly encourage submissions on
topics of emerging interest in the research and development communities. We
invite submissions on the following topics:

* Big data management, platforms and analytics
* Cloud applications and services
* Cloud programming models, benchmarks, and tools
* Cloud storage and databases
* Cloud processing, both batch and streaming
* Cloud security, privacy, compliance, and trust
* Energy management in cloud centers
* Hybrid cloud integration
* Metering, pricing, and software licensing
* Mobile cloud computing
* Multimedia cloud computing
* Performance, dependability, and service level agreements
* Resource management and optimization in the cloud
* Service lifecycle management and automation
* Virtualization technology
* Workload deployment and migration
* X as a Service, where X includes Backend, Business Process, Database,
Information, Infrastructure, Network, Platform, Security, Software,
Storage, or other emerging services

Submission instructions
* Please register abstracts by the abstract submission deadline and submit
full (and short) papers by the full paper submission deadline in PDF format
via the web submission form at https://hotcrp.doc.ic.ac.uk/ic2e17/.
* Full research track papers should not exceed 10 pages double column,
including figures, and tables. References can be additional pages. Short
papers are limited to 6 pages, not including references. Short papers
should be clearly marked as such in the title.
* The manuscripts may not exceed 10-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages
(IEEE conference style).
* See style templates for details:

Review process and publication
* All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed. Submissions will be
judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance,
quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference
scope. Submitted manuscripts must contain original contributions, and their
contributions must NOT have appeared in or be under consideration for
publication in another workshop, conference, or journal.
* After review, some full paper submissions may be offered to be published
as a short paper (6 pages) or a poster (2 pages).
* Accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Conference
Publishing Services (EI indexed).


Important Dates
Paper submission deadline: October 21, 2016, 23:59 GMT
Author notification: December 12, 2016
Camera-ready deadline: January 15, 2017

The IC2E 2017 Industrial Track invites papers emphasizing practical
experiences, real-world applications and emerging challenges in the
industry on topics of interest that are similar to those in the general
conference call for papers. All accepted papers will be presented at the
conference and included in the conference proceedings. The industrial track
aims to enable broader industry participation. It provides a forum for the
discussion of practical issues running cloud platforms or services, and
sharing of information and best practices among developers, practitioners,
service providers and cloud operators.

Key areas of interest include:
* Design, implementation and operation of cloud platforms
* Practical design issues with infrastructure, platform and other
as-a-service offerings
* Experimental data on cloud operations and usage patterns
* Managing big data, practical challenges and emerging techniques
* Platforms and services around data and analytics
* Operational analytics and DevOps solutions
* Experience with cloud management systems, tools, and integration
* Cloud security, privacy, compliance, and trust
* Resource management and accounting for cloud
* Energy management in cloud centers
* Cloud and mobile intersection
* Cloud programming models, benchmarks, and tools
* Cloud operating models including, public, on-premises and hybrid
* Economics of cloud including metering, pricing, billing and licence
* Service lifecycle management and automation
* Cloud runtimes including virtualization, containers, unikernels,
event-driven serverless computing

Submission Instructions

* Papers must not exceed 8 pages (IEEE style), including abstract, all
figures, tables, and references. Submitted papers should follow the general
IC2E formatting instructions. Submitted papers may not be submitted for
conference publication, journal publication, or be under review for any
other conference or journal. For any questions regarding this, please
contact the track chair.
