in conjunction with the 9th IEEE/ACM Utility and Cloud Computing Conference (UCC)
Tongji University - Shanghai, China, December 6-9, 2016


Paper submission due: July 30, 2016
Notification of acceptance: August 30, 2016
Final camera-ready papers due: September 21, 2016
Workshop celebration: December 6-9, 2016 (TBD)
Attendees to CloudAM must register for the main conference UCC2016


CloudAM2016 workshop invites authors to submit original and unpublished work.
Papers should not exceed 6 pages IEEE style (single-spaced 2-column text using 10-point size type on A4 paper).
Authors should submit a PostScript (level 2) or PDF file that will print on a PostScript printer.

Submission requires the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. 
All selected papers for this workshop are peer-reviewed and will be published in IEEE Xplore. 
Selected (extended) papers should be invited to submit to a high quality Journal special issue.


Cloud computing, virtualization and virtual (eScience) applications are currently hot topics
and have been generating substantial interest in the community, and it is anticipated that this
interest will expand. It is also important to the research community as it is challenging
traditional methods by its sheer size and high level of automation. Clouds must provide
appropriate levels of performance to large groups of diverse users, and those clouds
are accessed through virtualized wide area networks. Management systems are essential
for that and thereby for the future success of the cloud paradigm. New systems, methods, and
approaches for cloud, virtualization and (eScience) applications management are to be discussed
at this workshop.

For the CloudAM 2016 workshop, researchers from Clouds and (eScience) Applications communities
are encouraged to submit and present original work to be considered for publication.
Overall topics of interest include but are not limited to: 

* Cloud computing environments
* Cloud service orchestration
* Cloud APIs and usage control
* Cloud data management
* Cloud scalable monitoring
* Cloud load balancing
* Multi-cloud/Inter-clouds 
* Customer cloud management
* Managing data centers
* Management as a service
* Management of virtual slices
* *aaS Management
* Application and Management Portals
* Cloud scheduling
* Hybrid clouds
* Fog computing
* Cloud case studies
