The "Cloud" is a natural evolution of distributed computing and of the
widespread adaption of virtualization and Service-Oriented Architectures 
In Cloud Computing, IT-related capabilities and resources are provided 
services, via the Internet and on-demand, accessible without requiring 
knowledge of the underlying technology.

**IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing Technology & Science 
will be the 8th in the series of conferences, steered by the Cloud 
Association, that brings together researchers, developers and users 
in cloud computing systems to present and discuss the needs of, and
