Sponsored by the Technical Committee on Services Computing (IEEE Computer Society), the Third IEEE 2010 International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2010) will be co-located with the 6th IEEE 2010 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2010), the 8th IEEE 2010 International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2010), and the 7th IEEE 2010 International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2010) to grow itself to continute to be the most prestigious professional conference dedicated to cloud computing.
“Change we are leading” is the theme of CLOUD 2010. Cloud Computing has become a scalable services consumption and delivery platform in the field of Services Computing. The technical foundations of Cloud Computing include Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Virtualizations of hardware and software. The goal of Cloud Computing is to share resources among the cloud service consumers, cloud partners, and cloud vendors in the cloud value chain. The resource sharing at various levels results in various cloud offerings such as infrastructure cloud (e.g. hardware, IT infrastructure management), software cloud (e.g. SaaS focusing on middleware as a service, or traditional CRM as a service), application cloud (e.g. Application as a Service, UML modeling tools as a service, social network as a service), and business cloud (e.g. business process as a service).
In the fast growing Services Computing community, we have launched a series of events to promote and grow Cloud Computing in the past years. In 2002, we promoted Business Grid to share business processes and applications. In early 2008, The IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC) has adopted Cloud Computing to be included in the taxonomy as a body of knowledge area of Services Computing. In July 2008, the IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2008) has delivered a keynote panel “Business Cloud: Bridging The Power of SOA and Cloud Computing” and a keynote “Cloud Computing”. In September 2008, the 2008 IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2008) has delivered a keynote “Web Services: Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Communication, and Beyond” and a panel “Cloud Computing and IT as a Service: Opportunities and Challenges” to further motivate the community members to define Cloud Computing in various areas.
Based on the technology foundations and industry driving forces, the 2009 International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2009) is created to provide a prime international forum for both researchers and industry practitioners to exchange the latest fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice of Cloud Computing, identify emerging research topics, and define the future of Cloud Computing. CLOUD 2009 is the hot-topic conference co-located with the 2009 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2009). The two well-established theme conferences, the 2009 IEEE International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2009) held in July 2009 in USA and the 2009 IEEE International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2009) held in September 2009 in India, also enjoyed the success of launching CLOUD-I 2009 and CLOUD-II 2009. CLOUD 2009 was jointly sponsored by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Services Computing (TC-SVC) and Services Society. As a community, we have accomplished very well around CLOUD 2009’s theme “Change We Can Lead” in 2009.
To discuss this emerging enabling technology of the modern services industry, CLOUD 2010 invites you to join the largest academic conference to explores modern services and software sciences in the field of Services Computing, which was formally promoted by IEEE Computer Society since 2003. From technology foundation perspective, Services Computing has become the default discipline in the modern services industry.
CLOUD 2010 tries to attract researchers, practitioners, and industry business leaders in all the following areas to help define and shape cloud computing, and its related modernization strategy and directions of the services industry. You are invited to submit research, engineering, and business innovation papers to the following areas:
•Service-Oriented Architecture in Cloud Computing
•Vituralization of Hardware Resources
•Virtualization of Software Resources
•Cloud Computing Consulting Methods
•Design Tool for Cloud Computing
•Maintenance and Management of Cloud Computing
•Cloud Computing Architecture
•Cloud Applications in Vertical Industries
Paper Submission and Review Process
Please use the submission page (http://www.thecloudcomputing.org/2010/submission.html) to find the right tracks and events to submit your papers.
All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 program committee members. Please note that the same paper should NOT be submitted to other conferences or events simultaneously. Such duplicate submissions will be rejected from all conferences without review.
At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to the conference and present the paper. Only the accepted and presented papers will be published in the CD-ROM version and online version of the Proceedings of the 2010 IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2010), which will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Extended versions of selected best papers published in CLOUD 2010 will be invited for potential publication in the International Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR), the International Journal of Business Process Integration and Management (IJBPIM), and IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC). The CLOUD 2010 Proceedings is expected to be included in EI Compendex and other indexing systems. JWSR is indexed in SCI-E and EI Compendex.
Submitted manuscripts will be limited to 8 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages and required to be formatted using the IEEE Proceedings template. Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF or Word format) is required. Detailed instructions for electronic paper preparation and submission, panel proposals, tutorial proposals, and review process can be found from this web site.
Paper Review Policy
IEEE CLOUD 2010’s Policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others before publication. It is expected that no one with access to a paper under review will make any inappropriate use of the special knowledge, which that access providers. Contents of abstracts submitted to conference program committees should be regarded as privileged as well, and handled in the same manner. The Conference Publications Chair shall ensure that referees adhere to this practice.
Organizers of IEEE conferences are expected to provide an appropriate forum for the oral presentation and discussion of all accepted papers. An author, in offering a paper for presentation at an IEEE conference, or accepting an invitation to present a paper, is expected to be present at the meeting to deliver the paper. In the event that circumstances unknown at the time of submission of a paper preclude its presentation by an author, the program chair should be informed on time, and appropriate substitute arrangements should be made. In some cases it may help reduce no-shows for the Conference to require advance registration together with the submission of the final manuscript.
