First International Workshop on Next Generation Clouds<http://www.nextgenclouds.net/>
Eugene, Oregon, USA, August 13, 2018
To be held in conjunction with the 47th International Conference on <http://oaciss.uoregon.edu/icpp18/index.php>
Parallel Processing<http://oaciss.uoregon.edu/icpp18/index.php> (ICPP 2018)

The landscape of Cloud computing is rapidly changing to meet future
demands of scale and efficiency of emerging paradigms, such as the
Internet-of-Things. This Workshop aims to bring together researchers
from both academia and the industry to foster discussion and
collaboration for tackling the systems oriented challenges of next<https://arxiv.org/pdf/1707.07452.pdf>
