Dear Colleagues,
* We apologize if you receive this CFP more than once.
* PLEASE CIRCULATE this CFP among your colleagues and students.

Second Workshop on Seamless Adaptive Multi-cloud Management of
Service-based Applications

Held in conjunction with ESOCC 2015
September 15th, 2014
Taormina (Messina), Italy


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.
At the same time, even at the level of a single cloud, adaptation of cloud
services to their execution environment is strongly desirable in order to
take appropriate actions in response to changes in the cloud highly dynamic
environment. Adaptations can be performed at runtime (dynamic adaptation)
and at development time. In the latter case runtime and contextual data
provided to business application developers can allow them to enhance their
applications based on the actual operating conditions.
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.

Topics of interests
A non-exhaustive list of the topics of interest for the workshop is:
- Design of portable multi-cloud applications
- Feedback-driven development
- Analysis of multi-cloud application specifications
- Discovery of cloud services
- Adaptive deployment of multi-cloud applications
- Efficient and programmable monitoring of cloud infrastructures
- Efficient monitoring of multi-cloud applications
- Adaptive reconfiguration of multi-cloud applications
- Algorithms and data models for infrastructure and application dynamic
- Controlled migration of application modules across multiple clouds
- Emerging standards supporting multi-cloud application management
- Case studies and best practices in single-cloud and multi-cloud
