Workshop on Cloud Computing
at the XIX International Conference on Systems Science (ICSS 2016)
September 7-9, 2016, Wrocław, Poland
Objectives and topics
Cloud  Computing  has  emerged  to  one  of  the  most  widespread  used
paradigms  for  on-demand 
resource  provisioning  and  application  development.  Due  to  its 
popular  characteristics  like  resource 
pooling,  rapid  elasticity,  broad  network  access,  or  pay  as  you  go 
pricing  models,  it  has  been  widely adopted  for  a  variety  of 
application  scenarios  and  use  cases.  Those  unique  attributes  have 
led  to  a number of new research topics. Possibilities offered by modern
cloud infrastructures gave researchers and  developers  an  opportunity  to 
design  new  application  architectures,  develop  algori
thms  and methods for Big Data processing in the cloud, introduce new
methods for web service management and  resource  management,  propose  new 
service  composition methods,  apply  new  business models for cloud
services’ delivery and develop methods for management of methods supporting
Internet of Things data aggregation and processing in the cloud. All  these 
research  topics  are  closely  related  and  can  be  implemented  in 
scenarios  utilizing  cloud computing in the Internet of Things (IoT).
Applications in the scope of the IoT, such as telemedicine, smart  homes, 
smart  cities  or  applications  with  industrial  background  such  as 
factory  automation, logistics,  or  automotive  are  often  based  on  a 
variety  of  heterogeneous  sensor  nodes  and  sensor networks  collecting 
data  abo
ut  the  environment.  Both,  amount  and  diversity  of  sensor  nodes  and
resulting  data  streams  are  rapidly  increasing.  Thus,  IoT 
applications  can  benefit  from  the  ability  to elastically provide 
computing, network, and storage resources  offered by the Cloud. However,
the Cloud  Computing  and  Internet  of  Things  domains  show  divergent 
characteristics  in  term  of  their underlying resources. While IoT
developers often have to be aware of resource constraints, location and
semantics of sensor nodes, non-functional and infrastructure management
requirements, Cloud Computing is perceived as a rather homogenous and
endless resource being accessible within seconds and  without  limits. 
Therefore,  it  is  necessary  to  investigate  and  develop  appropriate 
concepts  that allow leveraging the advantages of the Cloud Computing for
the challenging application scenarios of the Internet of Things domain.

This workshop is intended to bring together researchers, developers, and
practitioners whose research 
works focus on cloud computing related topics described in this call. We
encourage submissions on all 
theoretical  and  practical  aspects,  as  well  as  experimental  studies 
of  deployed  systems.  Topics  of 
interests include (but are not limited to) the following subject categories:
Cloud Computing infrastructure 
Cloud Computing for Big Data
Computing methods design and implementation
Cloud Computing for Service Orinted Architectures
Methods for resource allocation in cloud environments
Web service and microservice composition methods
Business models for Cloud Computing services delivery
Cloud Computing models and architecture
Cloud Computing applications
Cloud computing for Internet of Things
Models and methods of decision making support in Cloud Computing resources
Platforms for the integration of Cloud and IoT environments
Security and Privacy for Cloud based IoT applications 
Non-functional requirements and Quality of service for Cloud based IoT

Important dates

Conference date: 7-9 September 2015 

All contributions should be original and not published elsewhere or intended
to be published during 
the  review  period.  Authors  are  invited  to  submit their  papers 
electronically  in  pdf  format,  through 
online submission system:

Authors are invited to submit original previously unpublished research
papers written in English, from 
6  to  11  pages,  strictly  following  the  Springer format guidelines. 
Authors  can  download  the  Latex  or Word templates available at
Springer's web site. Submissions not following the format guidelines will 
be  rejected  without  review.  To  ensure  high  quality,  all  papers 
will  be  thoroughly  reviewed  by  the 
Workshop Program  Committee.  All  accepted  papers  must  be  presented  by 
one  of  the  authors  who 
must  register  for  the  conference  and  pay  the  fee.  The  conference 
proceedings  will  be  published  by Springer  in  the  prestigious  series
