The cloud computing market is in rapid expansion due to the opportunities to dynamically allocate a large amount of resources when needed and to pay only for their effective usage. However, many challenges, in terms of interoperability, performance guarantee, and dependability, should still be addressed to make cloud computing the right solution for companies, research organizations and universities.

The workshop aims at bringing together researchers from academia and industry and PhD students interested in the design, implementation, and evaluation of services and mechanisms for dependable cloud computing in a multi-cloud environment.

This year edition of the workshop will focus more on aspects related to the convergence of mobile cloud with infrastructure cloud providers, on privacy & security aspects important for end-users and SMEs to enter the cloud market, and on the standardization effort on cloud computing.

Submission deadline: May 22nd, 2015 June 2nd, 2015 [extended]

Workshop co-located with Euro-Par 2015, 24th-28th August 2015
