Recent technology directions have highlighted the remarkable commercial developments in the cloud arena combined with a suite of Web 2.0 technologies around mashups, gadgets and social networking.  These have clear relevance to collaborative systems and sensor grids that involve evolution of grid architectures to clouds or to fresh approaches such as social networking to building virtual organizations.  This workshop explores this area and invites exploratory papers as well as mature research contributions.  

CSWC Possible topics include but are not limited to: 

	• Performance and experience using Clouds and Web 2.0 to support sensors or collaboration
	• Relation of Grids and Clouds in their application to sensors or collaboration
	• Data driven applications and use of emerging technologies like Mashups, gadgets and Hadoop
	• Clouds for Social Networking and Virtual Organizations
	• Security, Privacy, and Trust issues in Clouds and Web 2.0
	• MapReduce
	• Virtualization
	• Interoperability and Standardization
	• e-Science
	• Architectures
	• Services and Applications
	• Models for Managing Clouds of Clouds and including Inter-networking
	• Mobile clouds -- Architectures and Performance

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via email to the workshop organizers at 


Only PDF files will be accepted, sent by email to the workshop organizers.  Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews.  Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, contributions, technical clarity, and presentation.  Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted.  Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop.  

Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings.  Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the CTS 2014 Conference web site.  It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference.  The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed by all major indexing services accordingly.  

If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the workshop organizers.
