(Download a full-page color poster (in November 2009 and December 2009
Issues of the Communications of ACM and IEEE Computer) for the largest
Services Computing event in 2010!)
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 continue 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 ac!
 accomplished very well around CLOUD 2009’s theme “Change We Can Lead” in

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:

.Infrastructure Cloud
.Software Cloud
.Application Cloud
.Business Cloud
.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
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

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

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
Important Dates:

Paper Submission Due Date:  March 6, 2010 (Accepting paper submissions
from Nov. 1, 2009) Decision Notification (Electronic): April 15, 2010
Camera-Ready Copy Due Date & Pre-registration Due:  April 30, 2010
