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 IEEE CS format. For regular papers, the page limit will be 8 pages. All relevant papers will receive a minimum of three peer reviews. Authors of accepted papers will be asked to present in a plenary session.

IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing (TCC: http://computer.org/TCC) is organising a Special Issue which encourages submission of revised and extended versions of 2-3 top-rated papers in the area of Cloud Computing from our conference. The special issue also seeks direct submission of papers that present 'new' ideas for the first time in TCC. All papers will be peer-reviewed and selected competitively based on their originality and merit as per the requirements of TCC. All queries on this special issue should be directed to its guest editors. Details of this special issue will be provided in a separate Call for Papers here.
