Conference - Cloud Computing Technology

2nd IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing Technology and Science (CloudCom 2010)

Nov 30 ~ Dec 3, 2010, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA

Submission deadline: July 1st, 2010

"Cloud" is a common metaphor for an Internet accessible infrastructure
(e.g. data storage and computing hardware) which is hidden from users. Cloud
Computing makes data truly mobile and a user can simply access a chosen cloud
with any internet accessible device. In Cloud Computing, IT-related
capabilities are provided as services, accessible without requiring detailed
knowledge of the underlying technology. Thus, many mature technologies are
used as components in Cloud Computing, but still there are many unresolved and
open problems. This conference and workshop series, steered by the Cloud
Computing Association (, aims to bring together researchers
who work on cloud computing and related technologies. Topics include but are
not limited to:

Topics include but are not limited to:
* Auditing, monitoring and scheduling
* Autonomic Computing
