The “Cloud” is a natural evolution of distributed computing and of the widespread adaption of virtualization and SOA. 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. The IEEE International Conference and Workshops on Cloud Computing Technology and Science, steered by the Cloud Computing Association, aim to bring together researchers who work on cloud computing and related technologies. Manuscripts need to be prepared according to the IEEE CS format, for regular papers, the page limit will be 8 pages. Distinguished papers will be invited to be included within a number of special issues in prestigious international journals.

The conference proceedings of CloudCom’15 are published by IEEE CS Press (IEEE Xplore) and indexed by EI and ISSN.

Topics of interest of CloudCom 2015 include, but are not limited to:
