[PVS] Cloud computing - Workshop - Call for papers ... PaperSubmission: March 30, 2012 (Extended)



Dear all

The 2nd Workshop on the Emerging Trends and Applications of Cloud Computing (ETACC) is being planned as a value-addition to the 3rd International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies will be held in Niagara Falls, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, on August 27-29, 2012.

A Brief about the Cloud Idea
The much-hoped cloud paradigm is seeing an unprecedented adoption and adaption across the globe. The breakthrough cloud idea is actually a smart and sensible combination of several proven and promising technologies such as consolidation, virtualization, optimization, service orientation (SO), and an array of computing paradigms such as cluster, grid, on-demand, and utility computing. The complete and compact automation of several complicated IT infrastructure management and maintenance tasks such as job scheduling, resource provisioning, workload management, asset management, capacity planning, configuration management, virtual machine creation and control, self-servicing, etc. remains the key aspects for the upswing of the pioneering cloud technology.

The noteworthy aspect is that cloud infrastructures fulfil myriad quality attributes (Non-functional requirements such as scalability / elasticity, availability, adaptability, alacrity, high performance, etc.). The cloud paradigm has come as a boon and blessing for enterprise IT as it could introduce and incorporate a series of innovations and improvisations there in order to realize the long-pending target of business-IT alignment. Cloud is undoubtedly the transformative and disruptive technology that has the wherewithal to effectively accomplish the long-standing needs such as IT agility, autonomy and affordability. Due to the inherent harmonization with service oriented architecture (SOA), an offshoot of the popular and pervasive service orientation (SO), the goal of establishing adaptive, lean, green, instant-on and smart enterprises is to see the reality soon. Several IT concerns, constraints and challenges are being easily tackled by the cloud paradigm in sync up with other enterprise-scale technologies. Enhanced IT utilization is to see the light through the consolidated, virtualized, automated and shared IT infrastructures.

Next-Generation Cloud Computing - Any promising technology or paradigm has to evolve continuously. Issues and limitations are being identified, potential solutions are being conceived and constructed, and newer techniques are being explored, experimented and expounded. There are different directions and dimensions in the holistic journey of cloud. The extraordinary successes of cloud computing in the enterprise space is being spectacularly leveraged and replicated in the vast and varied embedded space. All kinds of physical and embedded devices are being connected and linked up with clouds inducing a kind of deeper and deft connectivity among disparate, distributed, and decentralized devices. This cloud-centric connectivity has the potential for enabling elegant and exotic applications. Newer cloud types, models, applications and services are being formulated to keep up the cloud momentum. Sensor, device, knowledge, science, service clouds etc are being given newer thrusts these days. Cloud brokerage services comprising cloud integration, composition and inter-mediation aspects are fast- emerging with a series of collaborative initiatives among cloud service providers, academic researchers, and service organizations, consortiums for standards, government institutions and IT professionals.

Cloud, being a generic technology, is bound to raise a storm of advancements and accomplishments across a variety of domains in the days to unfold. In other words, the cloud space is all set to join as the third major force along with the enterprise and embedded spaces in accurately understanding peoples' needs, conceiving, conceptualizing and concretizing the identified requirements in the form of people-centric services and applications that can be delivered unobtrusively to the right people at the right time at the right place. Thus there is a close linkup between cloud and people IT. Cloud is bringing the much-needed transition from the expensive IT to elastic, elegant and finally exotic IT. The cloud space is seeing much more value and verve as entrepreneurs, employees and executives are on the knowhow of the path-breaking nature of cloud technology.

The workshop is to act as a knowledge sharing platform for researchers from academic institutions and professionals from the industry to share their ideas, algorithms, prototypes and solutions related to the cloud computing and its evolution. The topics include but not limited to

ü  The emerging Application Domains 
ü  Cloud Brokerage Services and Cloud Middleware 
ü  Policy-based Cloud Management and Governance 
ü  Cloud Reliability, Security, Availability and Performance Modelling 
ü  Newer Cloud Development, Deployment and Delivery Models
ü  Device-to-Cloud Integration
