Call for Papers

Track 2 –Cloud Services and Networking


Track Chairs:

Angelos K. Marnerides, Lancaster University, UK

Dimitrios P. Pezaros, University of Glasgow, UK


Scope and Motivation:

The advent of Cloud computing as a cost-effective and reliable service delivery platform has resulted in a paradigm shift in how compute and storage resources are provisioned and managed at scale. At the same time, the physical locations of service facilities, and the virtualization of hardware and software elements are stressing the communication networks both within and across data centers, especially when these are interconnected over the Internet and through wide-area networks. Although the "computing" aspects of elastic resource provisioning over the Cloud have been largely investigated, less attention has been devoted to the "networking" aspects of Cloud computing, including Cloud network management, Cloud fabric protocols, Cloud traffic engineering, network-aware resource consolidation and related issues, and novel technologies paving the way to the emergence of new advanced Cloud services. The "Cloud Services and Networks Track" aims to address these aspects.

Topic of interest for the Cloud Services and Networks Track include (but are not limited to):

  • Data Center Network Management
  • Optimization and Virtual Embedding
