The 8th IEEE International Symposium on Cloud and Service Computing
Paris, France, November 19-22, 2018

Dear Colleagues:

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

*** Best Paper Award(s), Best Student Paper Award(s) and Best Poster(s) will be granted at SC2 2018.


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. 6-9, 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 systems
- 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

Workshop/Special Session Proposal
Paper Submission Deadline		July 14, 2018
Acceptance Notification		August 15, 2018
Registration Deadline			September 15, 2018
Camera-Ready Submission		September 15, 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

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

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: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sc22017
