Call for Papers
The "Cloud" is a natural evolution of distributed computing and of the widespread adaption of virtualization and Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA). 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.

The IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing Technology & Science 2017 (CloudCom 2017) will be the 9th in the series of conferences, steered by the Cloud Computing Association, that brings together researchers, developers and users interested in cloud computing systems to present and discuss the needs of, and innovations in, the area and related technologies.

Topics of interest of CloudCom 2017 include, but are not limited to:

Architecture and Virtualization
Cloud Services and Applications
IoT and Mobile on Cloud
Big Data

** Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Authors must submit their papers by the deadline indicated below, using the EasyChair submission system (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cloudcom2017).

Only PDF files will be accepted. Manuscripts need to be prepared according to the IEEE CS format. All regular paper submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of 8 pages. All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three experts (expected acceptance rate: ~18%).

Accepted papers must be presented at the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the conference, by the early date indicated by the organizers, and present the paper.

The conference proceedings of CloudCom 2017 will be published by IEEE CS Press (IEEE Xplore) and indexed by EI and ISSN. Distinguished papers will be invited to be included within a number of special issues in prestigious international journals.
