International Workshop on Security and Performance in Cloud Computing
Call for Papers
As part of
The 2011 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation
In Conjunction With
The International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC 2011)
July 4 – 8, 2011
(Submission Deadline: February 28, 2011)
SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
Cloud computing systems open a new perspective on almost every aspect of computing. Some security issues raised by cloud computing are alleviated by virtualization but the performance overheads should be balanced against this advantage. Dynamic scalability or “elasticity” will help generalize high-performance computing and very large data sets in applications. But the actual gains in performance depend heavily on the predictability of physical and virtualized resources. Consequently, the balancing of performance against security and the adaptation of HPC or VLDB techniques to cloud computing are of strategic importance and will have long-lasting scientific content.
The SPCLOUD workshop will bring together researchers and IT practitioners to present new results and ongoing work on the themes of security and performance in the cloud.
The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 450 words. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged at additional fee. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via email to the Workshop organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be made available at the time of the meeting.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the Workshop, please contact the organizers.
