International Workshop On Assured Cloud Computing And QoS Aware Big Data 1000 567 SecureCloud

International Workshop On Assured Cloud Computing And QoS Aware Big Data

wacc_workshop_ccgrid

WACC draws together researchers, practitioners, and thought leaders from government, industry, and academia. The workshop provides a forum of dialogue centered upon the development and advancement of an effort to design, implement, and evaluate dependable cloud architectures that can provide assurances with respect to security, reliability, and timeliness of computations (or services). Some new “assured” target applications include, but are not limited to, dependable Big Data applications and streaming, data analytics and its tools, real-time computations for monitoring, control of cyber-physical systems such as power systems, and mission critical computations for rescue and recovery.
The technical emphasis of WACC is design, implementation, and evaluation of cloud services, data analytics tools, and security solutions to enable dependable Big Data applications. Research on cloud services, ICT-skilled data scientists and application developers can find complementary solutions and partnerships to evaluate and integrate additional solutions. Data scientists can find new tools that could address existing needs.

Topics

Submissions are solicited for the 1 day International Workshop on Assured Cloud Computing and QoS aware Big Data (WACC 2017), which will be held in conjunction with the 17th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing in Madrid, Spain. The workshop will include a mix invited talks, refereed papers, and panels. Papers will appear in the workshop proceedings to be published by the IEEE and CCGrid.

Topics of Interest


We invite submissions on any topic related to cloud computing that aligns with the workshop goals listed above.

  • Assurance in clouds and their applications including time-critical cloud computations, streaming and the QoS of cloud services.
