SeaClouds - First workshop on seamless adaptive multi-cloud management of
service-based applications

Held in conjunction with ESOCC 2014
September 2, 2014
Manchester, UK

Deploying and managing in an efficient and adaptive way complex
service-based applications across multiple heterogeneous clouds is one of
the problems that have emerged with the cloud revolution. The current lack
of universally accepted standards supporting cloud interoperability is
severely affecting the portability of cloud-based applications across
different platforms.

The objective of the workshop is to provide a forum to discuss problems,
solutions and perspectives of the ongoing research activities aimed at
enabling an efficient and adaptive management of service-based
applications across multiple clouds.

The workshop is promoted by the ongoing European research project
EC-FP7-ICT-610531 SeaClouds (http://www.seaclouds-project.eu/), whose
ultimate objective is to enable a seamless adaptive multi-cloud management
of complex applications by supporting the distribution, monitoring and
migration of application modules over multiple heterogeneous clouds.

Topics of interest
A non-exhaustive list of the topics of interest for the workshop is: -
Design of portable multi-cloud applications
- Analysis of multi-cloud application specifications
- Discovery of cloud services
- Adaptive deployment of multi-cloud applications
- Efficient monitoring of multi-cloud applications
- Adaptive reconfiguration of multi-cloud applications
- Controlled migration of application modules across multiple clouds -
Emerging standards supporting multi-cloud application management - Case
studies and best practices in multi-cloud applications
