Managing challenges from the Cloud to the Edge

In conjunction with the 12th IEEE/ACM Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC)

Auckland, New Zealand, December 2-5, 2019


Cloud computing, virtualization technologies are currently have been
generating substantial interest in the community, and it is
anticipated that this interest will keep expanding with the emergence
of edge computing infrastructures, such as Fog Computing. Cloud and
edge infrastructures can work together to fulfill requirements from a
variety of applications, composing the so-called Cloud Continuum to
the edge. Clouds must provide appropriate levels of performance to
large groups of diverse users, and those clouds are accessed through
virtualized wide area networks, where edge/fog devices can act as a
first layer of computing capacity closer to the user. Management
systems are essential for that and thereby for the future success of
the fog-cloud hierarchy. New systems, methods, and approaches for
cloud and edge computing, virtualization and (eScience) applications
management are to be discussed at this workshop.

For the CloudAM 2019 workshop, researchers from Clouds and Edge
computing communities are encouraged to submit and present original
work for its publication. Overall topics of interest include but are
not limited to:
-  Cloud and fog computing environments
-  Cloud and fog service orchestration
-  Cloud and fog APIs
-  Cloud and fog data management
-  Cloud and fog scalable monitoring
-  Cloud and fog load balancing
-  Multi-cloud/Inter-clouds
-  Customer cloud management
-  Managing data centers
-  Management as a service
-  Management of virtual slices
-  +ACo-aaS Management
-  Cloud and fog scheduling
-  Hybrid clouds
-  Fog and Edge computing
-  Cloud surveys and taxonomies
-  Social clouds
-  Business models for cloud and fog computing.
-  Managing cloud services
-  Management of virtualized hardware resources
-  Network-specific mechanisms for optimized cloud access
-  Performance modeling +ACY evaluation
-  QoS/QoE management in the cloud
-  Management tools for infrastructure virtualization
-  Automated resource slicing
-  Policy driven service/resource life-cycle management
-  Applications and services enabled by virtualized infrastructure
-  Optimization of data center and workload energy consumption
-  Green cloud computing
-  Scientific workflows on clouds and edge
-  Mobile clouds and mobile edge computing
-  Big data / complex event processing in the cloud-edge hierarchy
-  Autonomic cloud computing
-  Cloud Continuum +IBM IoT/Smart Cities integration

The Clouds, Edge, and Applications Management workshop invites authors
to submit original and unpublished work. Papers should not exceed 6
pages in ACM format. Additional pages might be purchased, in some
circumstances, upon the approval of the proceedings chair.
-  Electronic submission only (via easychair submission server).
-  Submission requires the willingness of at least one of the authors
to register for a full conference (non-workshop, non-student)
registration rate and present the paper.
-  All selected papers for this workshop are peer-reviewed and will be
published in UCC's proceedings.
-  Selected (extended) papers should be invited to submit to a
high-quality Journal special issue.

Paper submission due: September 14, 2019
Notification of acceptance: October 11, 2019
Final camera-ready papers due: October 15, 2019 (hard deadline)
Workshop date: December 2-5 2019
