The 6th IEEE International Symposium on Cloud and Service Computing(IEEE SC2

Fiji, December 8-10, 2016

The “Cloud” is a natural evolution of distributed computing and the
widespread adaption of virtualization and SOA. Services computing is a new
cross-discipline subject that covers the science and technology needed to
bridge the gap between business services and IT services. In cloud
computing, IT-related capabilities and resources are provided as services,
via the Internet and on-demand, accessible without requiring detailed
knowledge of the underlying technology.

SC2 2016 is an important forum for researchers and industry practitioners to
exchange information regarding advancements in the state of art and practice
of IT-driven cloud computing technologies and services, as well as to
identify emerging research topics and define the future directions of cloud
and services computing.

IEEE SC2 2016 will be held on Dec. 8-10, 2016 in Fiji. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:

- Cloud architecture
- Cloud OS, middleware, and toolkits
- Storage architecture
- Big data infrastructure, systems, methodologies, and applications
- Virtualization techniques
- Resource provision, monitoring, and scheduling
- Privacy and access control for cloud computing
- Performance evaluation and modeling measurement for cloud computing
- Programming models for building cloud applications
- Networking in cloud computing
- Security, privacy and trustworthy in clouds
- Security, privacy and trustworthy for service oriented architectures and
- Energy efficient hardware and software solutions
- High availability and reliability
- Large scale cloud applications
- Internet/web computing and data mining
- Volunteer and utility computing
- Green and pervasive computing
- Service oriented architecture
- Discovery of services and data in cloud computing infrastructures
- Foundations of services computing
- Services-centric business models
- Business process integration and management

Papers need to be prepared according to the IEEE format, and submitted in
PDF format via the IEEE SC2 2016 submission site:

IEEE formatting information:

- Proposals for organizing tutorials, workshops and special sessions need to
be submitted to the Tutorials, Workshops and Special Sessions Chairs,
respectively. A proposal should include title, theme, scope and main

- Research paper (8 pages) should explore a specific technology problem and
propose a complete solution to it, with experimental results.

- Works-in-Progess (WIP) (6 pages) papers are expected to present either
work currently in progress or less developed but highly innovative ideas.
- Demo/Poster papers (4 pages) must describe working systems and be related
to SC2. These systems may be innovative prototype implementations or mature
systems that use related technology.  Papers/proposals need to be submitted
to the Demo/Poster Chair.

- Workshop and Special Session papers (6 pages) need to be submitted to the
corresponding workshops and special sessions.
