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 
as services, via the Internet and on-demand, accessible without 
requiring detailed knowledge of the underlying technology.

**IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing Technology & Science 
2018 (CloudCom 2018)** will be the 10th in the series of conferences.
CloudCom is the premier conference on Cloud Computing worldwide, 
attracting researchers, developers, users, students and practitioners 
from the fields of big data, systems architecture, services research, 
virtualization, security and privacy, high performance computing, always 
with an emphasis on how to build cloud computing platforms with real 
impact. The conference is co-sponsored by the Institute of Electrical 
and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), is steered by the Cloud Computing 
Association, and draws on the excellence of its world-class Program 
Committee and its participants.
CloudCom 2018 will be held in Nicosia, Cyprus between 10-13 December,
