Call For Papers

2nd International Workshop on Dependability Issues in Cloud Computing 
(DISCCO 2013)

Location: Braga, Portugal
Date: September 30, 2013

to be held in conjunction with the 32nd IEEE International Symposium on 
Reliable Distributed Systems (SRDS)


Cloud computing has recently emerged as a new and popular paradigm for 
deploying, managing and delivering a variety of services through a 
shared infrastructure. The services offered through clouds can range 
from simple data storage to end-to-end management of business processes. 
However, the broad, complex and dynamic nature of cloud computing 
environments makes it very challenging to provide resilience against 
design faults, unforeseen failures, unexpected operating conditions, and 
adversarial attacks. The widespread failure of Amazon's cloud computing 
infrastructure last year adversely affected thousands of Amazon's 
customers, and underscores the importance of providing reliability for 
cloud computing services.

The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers and 
practitioners from academia, industry and government organizations to 
foster discussion and share ideas, problems and solutions related to 
dependability issues in cloud computing. We solicit stimulating, 
original, previously unpublished ideas on completed work, position 
papers, and/or work-in-progress papers.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   - Testing and debugging automation tools for cloud software and 
   - Monitoring, diagnosis and failure recovery mechanisms for cloud 
software and applications
   - Hardware and software fault-tolerance techniques for large-scale 
cloud computing
   - Fault-tolerant approaches to virtualization in clouds
   - Reliability of cloud software, applications and services
   - Autonomic and self-* cloud computing
   - Secure computation in clouds
   - Secure data management in clouds
   - Access control and key management in clouds
   - Network security mechanisms in clouds
   - Privacy and identity management in clouds
