Since 1987 - Covering the Fastest Computers in the World and the People Who Run Them

January 29, 2014

NCCA14 Issues Call for Participation

Jan. 29 — Cloud Computing is defined as a pool of virtualized computer resources. Based on this virtualization the Cloud Computing paradigm allows workloads to be deployed and scaled-out quickly through the rapid provisioning of virtual machines. A Cloud Computing platform is expected to support redundant, self-recovering, highly scalable programming models that allow workloads to recover from many inevitable hardware/software failures and monitoring resource usage in real-time for provisioning purposes and run time optimization of the hosted applications. A Cloud Computing platform is more than a collection of computer resources because it provides a mechanism to manage those resources. In a Cloud Computing platform software is migrating from the desktop into the “clouds” of the Internet, promising users anytime, anywhere access to their programs and data.

What challenges does it presents to users, programmers, and telecommunications providers? The goal of this Cloud Computing Symposium series is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss all aspects of Cloud Computing. All topics of design, theory and realization are of interest.

Topics of Interest:

Cloud Computing Infrastructure:

  • – Operating systems;
  • – Control services;
  • – Distributed infrastructures;
  • – Distributed composite services;
  • – Kernel-exchange modules;
  • – Application exchange modules;
  • – Basic services;
  • – Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) for Cloud Computing.

Scalable, Self-managing and Autonomic Cloud Computing platforms:

  • -Dynamic instantiation;
  • – Vertically scaling platforms;
  • – Dynamic composition;
  • – Self-managing platforms;
  • – Dynamic configuration;
  • – Dynamic reconfiguration of services;
  • – Horizontally scaling platforms;
  • – Self-Healing Cloud computing platforms;
  • – Software Defined Networks (SDN) for Cloud Computing.

Security of Cloud Computing Platforms:

  • – Authentication;
  • – Self-protecting platforms;
  • – Increasing resilience against Cyber attacks of Software as a Service (SaaS);
  • – Increasing resilience against Cyber attacks of Platforms as a Service (PaaS);
  • – Increasing resilience against Cyber attacks of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).

Cloud Computing Applications:

  • – E-Commerce, Media processing and Streaming search engines, Development and testing, Web hosting, Application hosting, Collaboration tools, Store and share, Social networking for businesses and web applications, Bio-informatics, Biomedical applications, Scientific computing.
