The 8th IEEE International Symposium on Cloud and Service Computing 

Paris, France, November 19-22, 2018 

* EXTENDED Submission Deadline for SC2: September 07, 2018 (firm) *

Dear Colleagues:
We cordially invite you to share your latest research results at the 2018
IEEE SC2 Conference.


The “Cloud” is a natural evolution of distributed computing and the
widespread adaption of virtualization and Service-Oriented Architecture
(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 2018 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 2018 will be held on Nov. 19-22, 2018 in Paris, France. 
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

Camera-Ready Submission         October 25, 2018


Authors are invited to submit their original research work that has not
previously been submitted or published in any other venue. Papers should be
prepared in IEEE format and submitted via the SC2 2018 submission site : 


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 track.

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

Papers need to be prepared according to the IEEE format, and submitted in
PDF format via the IEEE SC2 2017 submission site:
