CFP announced



3rd Workshop on
Dependability and Interoperability in Heterogeneous Clouds

in conjunction with

Euro-Par 2015
August 24th-28th, Vienna, Austria



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,
dependability, and privacy 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.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

– Mobile cloud computing
– Service Level Agreements in clouds
– Trust and reputation in cloud computing
– Security and privacy aspects in cloud computing
– Availability of cloud services
– Reliable cloud computing
– Dependable performance for cloud applications
– Federation of heterogeneous clouds
– Design of dependable multicloud applications
– Interoperability
– Resource Management and virtualization
– IaaS and PaaS business models
– Cloud standards and best practices


Authors are invited to submit original papers, that have not been
published in or submitted to other workshops, conferences or
journals. Submitted papers must be written in English, formatted
according to the LNCS guidelines, and they must not exceed 12 pages.
Paper submission will be done through EasyChair.

DIHC – Dependability and Interoperability in Heterogeneous Clouds

Submission of the paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at
least one of the authors must register and present the paper at the
workshop. Accepted papers that are presented at the workshop, will be
published in a special Euro-Par Workshop Volume in the Lecture Notes
in Computer Science (LNCS) series after the Euro-Par conference.
