CloudCAT 2011

MSC 2011


International Workshop on Cloud Computing, Applications and Technologies. (CloudCAT 2011)

Recent advances in cloud computing technologies provide the ability to aggregate geographically-distributed resources into a single integrated computing platform. A variety of heterogeneous distributed resources, such as clusters, PCs, workstations, data storage devices or specific scientific instruments, are utilized and shared in cloud computing systems. Computational resources, storage, memory, and bandwidth are complemented with content-oriented input from databases and web services. An emerging research area for cloud computing has seen a change from widely distributed resources sharing for data-intensive problems to service-oriented computation, collaboration, and virtual organization. Therefore, the discovery and integration of cloud resources and services on Internet has become convenient and flexible in terms of the combination of cloud computing and web services used in various cloud applications. Therefore, this workshop intends to foster state-of-the-art research in the areas of Cloud computing, Technologies, and Applications through a forum for novel results and solutions to solve various problems and challenges foreseen in the future. We encourage the submission of innovative and mature results in designing, analyzing, and developing grid technology, services, and applications. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following topics:


Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit original papers they must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors have published elsewhere or have submitted in parallel to any other conferences that have proceedings. Papers must be written in English and must be in standard IEEE conference format limited to a maximum of 6 pages. The proceedings of the workshop will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press and indexed by EI. Submitting a paper to the workshop means that if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the workshop to present the paper. For no-show authors, their papers will be removed from the digital library after the conference. All submissions will be handled electronically through CloudCAT2011 submission system at http://grid.chu.edu.tw/CloudCAT2011, and must be in PDF.

A selection of the best papers will be published in special issues of some SCI/SCIE/EI Indexed journals.
