Call For Papers
The Second IEEE Symposium on Network Cloud Computing and Applications 
December 3th-5th, 2012, London, UK
Web Site: https://sites.google.com/site/ieeencca2012/
Sponsored by: The IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on 
Distributed Processing
Sponsored by: International Research Institute Autonomic Network 

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.


Cloud Computing Infrastructure:

- Horizontally scaling platforms;
- Self-Healing Cloud computing platforms.

Security of Cloud Computing Platforms:
- Authentication;
- Self-protecting platforms;
- Increasing resilience against Cyber attacks of Software as a Service 
- 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:

Development and testing, Web hosting, Application hosting, 
Collaboration tools, Store and share, Social networking for businesses 
and web applications, Bio-informatics, Biomedical applications.

All manuscripts must be written in English and must not exceed 20 
single column double-spaced pages (inclusive of figures and tables 
using a font size of at least 12 points) describing original 
unpublished research. All accepted papers will be published by the 
IEEE Computer Society Press. Prepare the final version of the 
manuscript using the paper templates here.The papers must be submitted 
in PDF format electronically via the Symposium webpage (TBA) All 
papers will be reviewed.

Furthermore, work in progress papers, industrial papers and student 
papers are also allowed.
