Dear fellow researchers,

10th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC
2017) <http://ucc-conference.org/> will be held in Austin (Texas, USA) from
5th till 8th of 2017. UCC <http://ucc-conference.org/> is the premier
IEEE/ACM conference covering all areas related to utility computing, cloud
computing services, and other forms of advanced distributed computing. UCC
provides an international forum for leading researchers and practitioners
in this important and growing multidisciplinary area. UCC 2017
<http://ucc-conference.org/> in Austin reflects the need to bring academics
and industrial researchers together to discuss how to improve existing
services and how to bring new applications into the cloud.


Cloud Computing delivers computational resources on-demand as services that
are commoditized and delivered comfortably analogous to traditional
utilities such as electricity, gas, water and telephony. Cloud service
offerings for computing, storage, and communication resources as well as
for hosted software and data are growing at a tremendous rate. It is
essential to understand how to effectively transform these services into
Utilities that provide value to both users and providers. There is also
increasing interest from commercial providers to offer business and revenue
models around the services they offer. Understanding how these models could
be used to provide utility for users, intermediary brokers (aggregators)
and providers is also an area of active research.

This will be the 10th UCC in a successful conference series of
community-driven events. Previous events were held in Shanghai, China
(Cloud 2009), Melbourne, Australia (Cloud 2010 & UCC 2011), Chennai, India
(UCC 2010), Chicago, USA (UCC 2012), Dresden, Germany (UCC 2013), London,
UK (UCC 2014), Limassol, Cyprus (UCC 2015) and Shanghai, China (UCC 2016).

UCC 2017 <http://ucc-conference.org/> will be co-located with the 4th
International Conference on Big Data Computing, Applications and
Technologies (BDCAT 2017) <http://dsr.encs.vancouver.wsu.edu/BDCAT2017/>


Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research manuscripts
that demonstrate current research in all areas of Cloud and Utility
computing including design and analysis of distributed and centralized
Cloud systems, data center design and engineering, economic and market
models for cloud systems, revenue and business models and their
applications in scientific and commercial deployments. The call for papers
is available here

*Topics of Interest*

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

   - Principles and theoretical foundations of Utility Computing, including
   pricing and service models
   - Policy languages and programming models, such as cloud-native and
   cloud-enabled applications
   - Utility-driven models and mechanisms for Cloud federations
   - Autonomic techniques for Cloud applications
   - Utility-/comfort-driven platforms for Clouds
   - Architectural models to achieve Utility in Clouds
   - Designs and deployment models for Clouds: private, public, hybrid,
   federated, aggregated
   - Cloud Computing middleware, stacks, tools, delivery networks and
   services at all layers (XaaS)
   - Integration of Cloud systems with edge devices
   - Virtualization technologies and other enablers
   - Economic models and scenarios of use
   - Scalability and resource management: brokering, scheduling, capacity
   planning, parallelism and elasticity, as well as marketplaces
   - Cloud management: autonomic, adaptive, self-*, SLAs, performance
   models and monitoring
   - Applications: games, social networks, scientific computing (e-science)
   and business, as well as large-scale foundations for Big Data and analytics
   - Mobile and energy-efficient use of Clouds
   - Cloud business and legal implications beyond technology, such as
   government regulation, security, privacy, trust and jurisdiction especially
   in Utility -
   - Computing contexts
   - Hands-on activities, tutorials, and instructional sessions on new
   technologies and methods


   - Tutorial and special event proposals due* 15 July, 2017
   - Paper submissions due: 15 July, 2017
   - Notification of acceptance: 27 August, 2017
   - Camera ready papers due: 30 September, 2017
   - Early registration deadline: 30 September, 2017
   - Regular registration deadline: 31 October, 2017
   - Late registration deadline: At the conference

* ( Separate calls for submissions will be issued by each tutorial or
special event accepted )


Submitted manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and need to
conform to the IEEE conference format guidelines.

Electronic submissions must be in the form of a readable PDF file. *Manuscript
submissions must be received by July 15, 2017.* All manuscripts will be
reviewed by the Program Committee and evaluated on originality, relevance
of the problem to the conference theme, technical strength, rigour in
analysis, quality of results, and organization and clarity of presentation
of the paper.

Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is not
currently under review for any other conference or journal. Further details
on the publication instructions and registration information will be
published on the UCC website.


One or more best paper awards will be given for outstanding contributed
papers. Selected papers from the conference will be invited to submit an
extended version to reputable journals for special issues. Papers will be
selected based on their reviewers’ scores and appropriateness to the
journal’s theme. All extended versions will undergo reviews and must
represent original unpublished research work. Further details will be made
available at the conference webpage.
