The 6th IEEE International Symposium on Cloud and Service Computing(IEEE SC2 2016)
Fiji, December 8-10, 2016

*** Best in Travel 2016 - Top 10 countries - Fiji ***

The “Cloud” is a natural evolution of distributed computing and the widespread adaption of virtualization and SOA. Services computing is a new cross-discipline subject that covers the science and technology needed to bridge the gap between business services and IT services. In cloud computing, IT-related capabilities and resources are provided as services, via the Internet and on-demand, accessible without requiring detailed knowledge of the underlying technology.

SC2 2016 is an important forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in the state of art and practice of IT-driven cloud computing technologies and services, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future directions of cloud and services computing.

IEEE SC2 2016 will be held on Dec. 8-10, 2016 in Fiji. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Cloud architecture
- Cloud OS, middleware, and toolkits
- Storage architecture
- Big data infrastructure, systems, methodologies, and applications
- Virtualization techniques
- Resource provision, monitoring, and scheduling
- Privacy and access control for cloud computing
- Performance evaluation and modeling measurement for cloud computing
- Programming models for building cloud applications
- Networking in cloud computing
- Security, privacy and trustworthy in clouds
- Security, privacy and trustworthy for service oriented architectures and systems
- Energy efficient hardware and software solutions
- High availability and reliability
- Large scale cloud applications
- Internet/web computing and data mining
- Volunteer and utility computing
- Green and pervasive computing
- Service oriented architecture
- Discovery of services and data in cloud computing infrastructures
- Foundations of services computing
- Services-centric business models
- Business process integration and management
