Call for Papers: Cloud&Grid 2012

The 2012 International Workshop on Cloud and Grid Interoperability 
(Cloud&Grid 2012)


Gwangju, Korea, 6-8 September 2012

In conjunction with NPC-12

"Cloud" is a common metaphor for an Internet accessible infrastructure, 
hiding most of the implementation and deployment details in the field of 
ICT. Cloud Computing is becoming a scalable services delivery and 
consumption platform. The backbone behind Cloud Computing includes 
Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Virtualization of hardware and 
The goal of Cloud Computing is to share resources among the cloud 
service consumers, cloud partners and cloud vendors in the cloud value 
chain. Cloud computing has been envisaged to be one of the main stream 
powering technologies of future ICT and next generation network.
The Cloud&Grid 2012 focus on Interoperability issues of grid and 
computing domain. It mainly focus on designing interoperable components, 
experiences and lessons learnt from developing interoperable services in 
the cloud and grid environment. This workshop aims at providing a forum 
to bring together researchers for sharing and exchanging cloud and Grid 
computing related research, technologies, experience, and lessons for 
building clouds of interoperability and coordination capabilities and 
We believe this workshop will be a place to help the research community 
to define their novel ideas in the current state of grid-cloud 
interoperability issues. In addition the workshop will help to define 
the future goals and services that cloud needs to support in various 
intensive commercial and enterprise application

The conference is now soliciting papers describing original work, 
unpublished and not currently submitted for publication elsewhere in the 
following areas, including but not limited to:

- Cloud Architectures
- Software, platform, hardware, and infrastructure as a Service
- Novel architectural models for cloud computing and grid-cloud 
- Scalable resource management solutions
- Cloud resource provisioning with QoS
- High availability with failure detection, prediction, and recovery
- Identity, metering, and privacy in Cloud
- Management of virtualized resources
- Workload and resource scheduling
- New parallel / concurrent programming models for cloud computing
- Content Delivery Networks using Storage Clouds
- Interoperability / portability of applications and data between 
different cloud providers
- Virtualization Technologies
- Service-oriented Computing
- Management of Clouds
- Security issues in cloud and grid computing
- Fault tolerance , Reliability of applications and services running on 
the cloud
- Case studies of the cloud and grid computing

Paper Submission and Proceeding
There will be a combination of presentations including scientific papers.
Prospective authors are invited, in the first instance, to submit papers 
for oral presentations in any of the areas of interest for this workshop.

Papers must strictly adhere to page limits as follows.
- Full Paper: 8 pages (Max 2 extra pages allowed at additional cost)
- Regular Paper: 6 pages (Max 2 extra pages allowed at additional cost)
- Poster Paper: 2 pages (FTRA Publishing Proceeding with ISBN)

Instructions for papers in the Springer's CCIS(Note that the paper 
format of CCIS is the same as that of LNCS)
- Prepare your paper in the exact format as the sample paper for CCIS. 
Failure to do so may result in the exclusion of your paper from the 
proceedings. Please read the authors' instructions carefully before 
preparing your papers.
- Springer accepts both Microsoft Word and LaTex format in the Lecture 
Note Series. However, FTRA does not accept the use of LaTex. Therefore, 
you should use the Microsoft Word instead of using LaTex (The paper will 
be excluded from the proceeding if you use LaTex). Springer provides the 
relevant templates and sample files for both PC (sv-lncs.dot) and Mac 
(sv-lncs) environments.
- Please download word.zip
