Call for Papers
The International Workshop of Software Architecture Principles for and with Cloud Computing (ArchiteCloud 2010)

In conjunction with the 10th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing - CCGrid 2010 (http://www.manjrasoft.com/ccgrid2010/mainpage.html) 
May 17-20, 2010, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Paper submission deadline: December 20th 2009

Workshop Theme:  Empower Cloud Applications with Architectural Principles
   Cloud computing is an emerging computing paradigm that aims to streamline the on-demand provisioning of software, hardware, and data as services. Deploying applications on a Cloud can help to achieve scalability and maintain a flexible infrastructure at user sites. A variety of challenges arise when deploying and operating applications and services on a Cloud in dynamic and evolving environments. Some examples of such challenges are: how to manage and guarantee service level agreements (SLAs) of services by leveraging Cloud computing capacity; how to integrate collaborative services deployed on-premise and on different Clouds; how to handle exceptions of long-running transactions across loosely coupled services on Clouds; how to deploy business processes and monitor their runtime status, among others. These challenges can be partially faced by applying architectural principles to Cloud application design. Building solutions that either reuse established software architecture principles for Cloud applications or facilitate new architectural principles specific for Cloud computing will provide deep insights not only about how to design Cloud applications, but also how to evaluate the practical usage of Cloud computing technologies. For example, past work on architectures for ultra-large scale systems can be useful for Cloud applications. 
   On the other hand, there is also a significant impact of Cloud computing on software architecture. As the popularity and diversity of Cloud applications grows, some principles for architecting software (and, more generally, IT) systems require re-examination and new architectural principles have to be identified. The aim of this workshop is to encourage academic researchers and industry practitioners to present and discuss all software architecture-related research and experiences in the broad spectrum of Cloud computing.  
   The topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:
.	Relevance of particular architecture principles and approaches for Cloud computing
.	Impact of Cloud computing on architecture of software and, more generally, IT systems
.	Patterns, best practices and experience report in development for Cloud-based applications
.	Architecture support for enhancing Cloud computing interoperability, including standards and protocols proposal or extension for integrating applications on-premise and different Cloud platforms  
.	Cloud architectures of emerging applications, such as mashup for enterprise services, data intensive computing and scientific workflows
.	Architecture support for SLA management and negotiation protocols for dynamic Cloud service binding 
.	Architecture accountability of Cloud services, including mechanisms, algorithms and methods for monitoring, analysing and reporting service status and usage profile
.	Architecture support for trust in/by Cloud services (service as a trustor and/or a trustee)
.	Capacity planning of services running on the Cloud
.	Deployment and configuration of Cloud services
.	Architecture support for dynamic resource management to support computing needs of Cloud services
.	Cloud architectures for dependability and security
.	Business analysis and process for designing large scale SOA applications 
.	Evaluation methods for Cloud architectures

Paper Submission
   Authors are invited to submit previously unpublished, high-quality papers before the above-noted deadline. Papers published or submitted elsewhere will be automatically rejected. Submissions should be in the IEEE conference paper format and must not exceed 6 pages in length. Guidelines and templates for this paper format are available at: http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting. All submissions should include the author's name, affiliation and contact details. The preferred format is Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF).
   The online submission system is available through the EasyChair conference management system at: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=architecloud2010. Inquiries about paper submission should be e-mailed to Dr. Jenny Liu (architecloud2010 at easychair dot org or jenny dot liu at nicta dot com dot au) and include "ArchiteCloud 2010" in the Subject line. 
   All submissions will be formally peer-reviewed by at least 3 Program Committee members. The publication of proceedings will be by the IEEE in the same volume as the main CCGrid 2010 conference. 
   At least one author of every accepted paper must attend the workshop and all workshop participants must pay both the CCGrid 2010 conference and workshop registration fees. However, the workshop has open registration (i.e., acceptance of a paper is not a prerequisite for participation) and we invite all interested professionals from industry, academia, and government to participate in the workshop.
