UCC is the premier IEEE/ACM conference covering all areas related to 
Cloud Computing as a Utility and provides an international forum for 
leading researchers and practitioners in this important and growing 
field. UCC 2018, to be held in Zurich, Switzerland, 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.

UCC 2018 will have a co-located 5th International Conference on Big Data 
Computing, Applications and Technologies (BDCAT 2018, 
http://bdcat-conference.org/), an embedded Cloud Challenge and a 
subsequent Serverless Symposium.

Please find a full list of workshops at

* Cloud management: autonomic, adaptive, self-*, SLAs, and monitoring
* Cloud-native application design and engineering
* Cloud, Fog and edge/mobile devices management, hierarchy models, and 
business models
* Designs and deployment models for Clouds: private, public, hybrid, 
federated, aggregated
* Economic and business models of Clouds and services
* HPC and the Cloud
* Innovative cloud applications and experiences
* Integration of Cloud systems with edge and IoT devices
* Mobile and energy-efficient use of Clouds
* Networking for clouds and data centres
* Performance analysis and modeling of cloud systems and applications
* Policy languages and programming models
* Principles and theoretical foundations of Utility Computing
* Resource management and scalability: brokering, scheduling, capacity 
planning, and elasticity
* Security, trust and privacy in Clouds
* Utility-driven platforms for Clouds
* Utility-driven models and mechanisms for interclouds / federations
* Virtualization, containerization, composition, orchestration and other 


Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research manuscripts 
that demonstrate current research in all areas of Cloud and Utility as 
well as Big Data computing, including design and analysis of distributed 
and centralized Cloud systems, data centre design and engineering, 
economic and market models for cloud systems, revenue and business 
models and their applications in scientific and commercial deployments.

Submitted manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may 
not exceed ten (10) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point 
size font on 8.5x11 inch pages, IEEE conference style, including 
figures, tables, and references. The proceedings will be published by 
the IEEE Computer Society and will be made available online through the 
IEEE Digital Library, as well as through the ACM Digital Library.

Authors should submit the manuscript in PDF format. All manuscripts will 
be reviewed and will be judged on correctness, originality, technical 
strength, rigour in analysis, quality of results, quality of 
presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference attendees. 
Papers conforming to the above guidelines can be submitted through the 
UCC 2018 paper submission system: 

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.
