Workshops

The purpose of workshops is to provide a more interactive and focused platform for presenting and discussing new and emerging ideas. The format of paper presentations may include oral presentations, poster presentations, keynote lectures and panels. Depending on the number of presentations, workshops can be scheduled for 1 day or 2 days. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on CD-ROM support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Index) and Scopus.

Scope

Our workshop presents a summary of Emerging Software as a Service and Analytics (ESaaSA), which offer innovative approaches of delivering services and making contributions to research and enterprise communities. Following the successful delivery of ESaaSA 2014, we oversee the importance of ESaaSA as a unique and rising field and all services in SaaS should always be designed, deployed and integrated. Emerging means innovative techniques and methods used for the traditional areas (finance, healthcare, education, security etc) or new areas (mobile apps, social networks, weather visualisation, Big Data processing etc). We will seek papers to demonstrate proofs-of-concept, demonstrations, design and implementations, successful case studies and use cases of adopting ESaaSA.



International Workshop on
Cloud Service Level Agreements
 - CloudSLA 2015

Chair

Alexander Stanik
Technische Universität Berlin
Germany
 
Scope

Cloud Services on all levels of abstraction (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) are mostly delivered with just a few or no service level agreements (SLA). In recent years, many activities had been investigating how to increase transparency in this domain and how to enable automated SLA negotiations, suggestions and guidance. On the other hand, SLAs need to be evaluated and thus the service needs to be monitored. Therefore, most activities for establishing SLAs are coupled with the monitoring of delivered services and evaluating the achieved service level objectives guaranteed in SLAs in order to detect violations or to collect information to prove the fulfilment of the SLA. In the scope of this workshop we will bring together researchers from various SLA domains and discuss cross-cutting solutions and approaches.


Self Organisation Clouds - SOCLO 2015

Paper Submission: February 27, 2015
Authors Notification: March 12, 2015
Camera Ready and Registration: March 26, 2015

Co-chairs

Scope

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers with a shared interest in the topic of designing and developing self-organising clouds. Specifically, we are interested in papers from researchers making use of self-organisation techniques to address the problems emerging from the confluence of issues in the emerging cloud: rising complexity and energy costs, problems of management and efficiency of use, the need to efficiently deploy services to a growing community of non-specialist users and the need to facilitate solutions based on heterogeneous components.
