 About The Workshop

Cloud Computing is emerging as a new paradigm of computing, wherein, the computing services are offered on pay-and-use basis via Internet. The technology has gained importance because of several advantages. Cloud computing promises reliable services delivered through next-generation data centers that are built on compute and storage virtualization technologies. Users will be able to access applications and data from a Cloud anywhere in the world on demand. However, there are number of challenging issues which need to be reworked and researched further to make the technology much more useful. The major challenge is to ensure the security of data that is deployed on the cloud. New security schemes and protocols are being worked out for ensuring security of data and thereby enhancing user trust on the usage of cloud.

The objective of the workshop is to understand the cloud computing technology and to explore the following issues:

  • Architectural Models for Cloud Computing
  • Innovative Cloud Service Models
  • Support for Scalable and Elastic Cloud Services
  • Research directions in Cloud Computing
  • Reliability of Applications and Services Running on the Cloud
  • Performance Monitoring for Cloud Applications
  • Cloud Use-Case Studies
  • Security Issues in Cloud Computing
