Cloud computing is rapidly becoming the predominant model for the delivery and consumption of IT resources. Significant effort from both the academic research community and industry has been devoted to creating new systems and networking technologies to better support the various forms of Cloud computing today (Infrastructure-, Software-, or Platform-as-a-Service).
Despite several recent successes, key challenges still remain. These include scalable and automated data center networking, tenant isolation and security, service monitoring and management, resource elasticity, flexible resource allocation and support for emerging Cloud programming models.
This emerging field will benefit from close interaction among researchers and industry practitioners. To this end, the workshop will bring together academics and practitioners in computer systems, networking and security to share their research accomplishments and identify core problems in Cloud computing.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
