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

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

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. Papers are submitted via EasyChair

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.
