CfP: 11th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E)
Boston, MA, USA (Sept. 25-29, 2023)


IC2E provides a high-quality and comprehensive forum where researchers 
and practitioners can exchange information on engineering principles, 
enabling technologies, and practical experiences related to Cloud 
Computing. The conference brings together experts who work on different 
levels of the cloud stack – including systems, storage, networking, 
platforms, databases, applications, and software engineering. IC2E 
offers an end-to-end view of the challenges and technologies in Cloud 
Computing, fosters new research that addresses the interaction between 
different layers of the stack, and ultimately helps to shape the future 
of cloud-transformed business and society.

IC2E 2023 invites submissions of high-quality research papers describing 
fully-developed results and ongoing foundational and applied work 
related to all aspects of cloud engineering. The IC2E Program Committee 
will interpret "cloud engineering" very broadly – to include everything 
from engineering principles to practical experiences, and advances that 
target different levels of the cloud stack, from both academia and 
industry. In particular, submissions on topics of emerging interest in 
the research and development communities are encouraged. Authors can 
choose to submit their papers under either the Research or Industry Track.

Submissions are invited on the following (non-exhaustive list) of topics 
for both tracks:
* Cloud Management and Engineering
* Cloud Applications
* Cloud Systems
* Fog and Edge Computing

For a full list of the topics, please visit 
https://conferences.computer.org/IC2E/2023/. IC2E is looking for the 
following three types of paper submissions:
* Research papers describe original well-evaluated research. Novelty is 
a key criterion in the review process.
* Vision papers describe speculative but well-reasoned and inspiring 
papers. Here, the insights and clarity of the vision are of key concern.
* Industry and experience papers describe how existing research has been 
transferred into practice. The review focus is on the lessons learned, 
including those relevant for researchers.

Research and vision papers should be submitted to the research track, 
industry and experience papers to the industry track. Vision papers 
should have "(Vision Paper)" as a subtitle on the first page.


Both Research Track and Industry Track papers should use the IEEE 
Manuscript Template for Conference Proceedings for formatting. LaTeX 
users must use \documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran}, without 
including the compsoc or compsocconf options. As reviewers often ask for 
additional content, IC2E differentiates between paper formatting for 
reviewing and for the final published version:

* Full papers: For reviewing, full papers (including figures and tables) 
should not exceed 9 double-column pages; references can be additional 
pages. For the final published version, full papers are limited to a 
total of 12 double-column pages including everything.
* Short papers: For reviewing, short papers are limited to 5 pages, not 
including references, and should be clearly marked as such in the title. 
For the final published version, short papers are limited to 8 pages, 
including everything.

All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed. Depending on the paper 
type, submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical 
strength, significance, quality of presentation, and interest and 
relevance to the conference scope. Submitted manuscripts must contain 
original contributions, and their contributions must not have appeared 
in or be under consideration for publication in another workshop, 
conference or journal.

Accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Computer Society 
Conference Publishing Services (EI indexed). Selected papers will be 
invited to submit an extended version in a special issue of the 
Springer-Nature "Computer Science" journal. For publication, each 
accepted paper is required to be registered by one of its authors. At 
least one author is required to attend and present the paper at the 
conference for the paper to be included in the final technical program 
and the IEEE Digital Library.
