Dear Colleague,

[Our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP]


The 6th Workshop on CrossCloud Infrastructures & Platforms

Paper submission: February 22, 2019
Author notification: March 22, 2019
Camera-ready version: March 29, 2019


The CrossCloud workshop aims to attract researchers from both academia 
and industry to share and discuss their recent research and experiences 
in designing and operating multiple cloud systems. Work in this area 
extends over various topics including cross-cloud resource management, 
service migration, monitoring, policy enforcement, API interoperability, 
portability, benefit–cost analysis, and fault mitigation.

Submission Guidelines
We will solicit the two following submission types:

- Technical papers: max 6 pages, including all figures and references
- Posters: max 2 pages, including all figures and references

Submitted manuscripts should be structured using the 2-column IEEE 
format for conference proceedings.
Submissions that violate these requirements will be rejected without review.
Each submission will receive at least 3 single-blind peer reviews.

Authors are encouraged, but not limited, to cover the following topics:
- Multi-cloud systems: resource management across multiple clouds and 
virtualized infrastructures, including performance optimization, load 
balancing, security, and privacy policy enforcement.
- Containers, unikernels, and serverless computing: migration, 
instrumentation, optimization, and management across separate 
- Cross-Cloud agility: adaptive workload offloading, multi-cloud 
resource scheduling strategies (e.g. cloud-bursting), dynamic 
application deployment across multiple platforms, and flexibility in 
moving between different providers.
- Decision support systems: efficient and open application deployment, 
monitoring of relevant metrics among different cloud environments; cloud 
brokerage as a means of complexity outsourcing.
- Cross-cloud developer tools and APIs: design, maintenance, support, 
and performance evaluation.
- API interoperability: study cases and experiences with data and 
applications including managed services (e.g., MapReduce, stream 
processing, DB, message queues, etc.).
- Fog and edge computing: resource aggregation, segmentation, placement, 
and orchestration.
- Experiences: lessons learned on assembling and (re)deploying 
applications in heterogeneous cloud environments; costs and benefits of 
cross-cloud management and deployment; priorities, restrictions, and 
lock-in mitigation techniques and measures; challenges in existing 
cross-cloud platforms; case studies on building or federating 
multi-cloud systems.

Publication of Accepted Papers
Papers from the workshop will be archived as part of the CCGrid2019 
companion proceedings through the IEEE Computer Society Conference 
Publishing Services.

Like in the former editions of the workshop, authors of the best 
technical papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their 
work to the SpringerOpen Journal of Internet Services and Applications 
thematic series on cross-cloud computing (JISA-CCC).
