SC2 2014

The “Cloud” is a natural evolution of distributed computing and of the widespread adaption of virtualization and SOA. Services computing is a new cross-discipline that covers the science and technology needed to bridge the gap between business services and IT services.

In Cloud computing, IT-related capabilities and resources are provided as services, via the Internet and on-demand, accessible without requiring detailed knowledge of the underlying technology. The goal of services computing is to develop new computing technology and thereby enable more advanced IT services to support business services more efficiently and effectively. SC2 2014 is an important forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in the state of art and practice of IT-driven cloud computing technologies and services, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future directions of cloud and services Computing. Areas of interest for SC2 2014 include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

Cloud architecture
Cloud OS, middleware, and toolkits
Storage architectures
Big Data
