CALL FOR PAPERS (submission deadline: Sept. 15, 2015)
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 2015 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.

SC2 2015 will be held on Dec. 19th-21st, 2015 in Chengdu, Sichuan, China. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

● Cloud architecture
● Cloud OS, middleware, and toolkits
● Storage architectures
● Big Data
● 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 of services
● Energy efficient hardware and software solutions
● High availability and reliability
● Large scale cloud applications, including Internet/web computing and data mining
● Volunteer computing
● Grid 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
