CFP: The IEEE International Conference on Smart Cloud 2016 (SmartCloud 2016)
(IEEE SmartCloud 2016)
Nov. 18th-20th, New York, USA
IEEE SmartCloud 2016 will be held at Columbia University, New York, USA.

As a novel technology, cloud computing implementations have been booming in recent years. Align with the development of data mining and big data, cloud computing has been an efficient approach for delivering intelligent services and forming advanced distributed systems. Empowering the existing infrastructure by using cloud computing techniques has been considered a dramatically significant issue for both academia and industry. Therefore, making cloud computing "smart" has a giant demand in multiple fields, from telehealth to e-learning, from vehicular systems to mobile applications. IEEE SmartCloud 2016 aims to collect recent academic achievements in novel techniques, developments, empirical studies, and new developments in cloud computing. Innovative technical applications in clouds are highly encouraged. The objective of IEEE SmartCloud 2016 is to provide a forum for scientists, engineers, and researchers to discuss and exchange their new ideas, novel results, work in progress and experience on all aspects of smart computing and cloud computing.
