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 or physical machines. A Cloud Computing platform supports redundant, self-recovering, highly scalable programming models that allow workloads to recover from many inevitable hardware/software failures and monitoring resource use in real time for providing physical and virtual servers on which the applications can run. 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.
