                                                          April 23, 2018

           Collocated with the European Conference on Computer Systems

                                 (Submission deadline: February 1, 2018)


CrossCloud is  an  international workshop series that aims to bring to
light  several issues related to cross-cloud systems: cloud federation,
multi-cloud architectures, cross-cloud applications, and hybrid clouds.

CrossCloud aims to attract researchers from  both academia and industry
to share and discuss their recent research and experiences in designing
and  operating   multiple  cloud   systems. Work  in  this area extends
over    various  topics  including  cross-cloud   resource management,
monitoring,  service   migration,  API  interoperability, portability,
policy enforcement, benefit–cost analysis, and fault mitigation.


Authors  are  invited  to  submit  papers covering, but not limited to,
the following topics:

- Multi-cloud systems:  resource management across multiple clouds and
virtualized infrastructures,  including performance optimization, load
balancing, security, and privacy policy enforcement.

- Containers, unikernels, and serverless computing: migration, instrum-
entation, optimization, and management across separate infrastructures.

- Cross-Cloud agility: adaptive workload offloading, multi-cloud resou-
rce scheduling strategies  (e.g. cloud-bursting),  dynamic application
deployment across multiple platforms, and flexibility in moving between
different providers.

- Decision support systems: efficient  and  open application deployment,
monitoring of relevant metrics among different cloud environments; cloud
brokerage as a means of complexity outsourcing.

- Cross-cloud developer tools and APIs:  design,  maintenance, support,
and performance evaluation.

- API interoperability: study cases and experiences with data and appli-
cations including managed services (e.g., MapReduce, stream processing,
DB, message queues, etc.).

- Fog and edge computing: resource aggregation, segmentation, placement,
and orchestration.

- Experiences: lessons learned on assembling and (re)deploying applicat-
ions in heterogeneous cloud environments;  costs and benefits  of cross-
cloud management and deployment;  priorities, restrictions,  and lock-in
mitigation  techniques  and measures;  challenges in existing crosscloud
platforms; case studies on building or federating multi-cloud systems.


Paper submission: February 1 2018
Author notification: March 1 2018
EuroSys Student Grant application: March 15, 2018
Camera-ready version: March 9, 2018
Workshop day: April 23, 2018

All deadline times are Anywhere on Earth.


We  solicit  two  types  of  submissions:  (1)  technical  papers (max
6 double-column pages), and (2) posters (max  2  double-column pages).
Each  submission  will  receive  at  least 3 single-blind peer reviews.
Authors  of  technical  papers are also encouraged to prepare a poster
to be displayed in the workshop's poster sessions.


Like in  the former  editions  of  the workshop, authors  of  the best
technical papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their
work to the Springer Open Journal of Internet Services and Applications
thematic series on cross-cloud computing (JISA-CCC).
