ICCLab Invited to European Commission Cloud Expert Group

The ICCLab (Andy and Thomas) is invited to participate to the next meeting of the Cloud Expert Group which will take place in October 29-30, 2012 in Brussels.

The previous work of the Cloud Expert Group (“Advances in Clouds”) has clearly shown that Cloud Computing still requires research and development work in multiple domains (e.g. software & services, networks, security, complex systems, etc.).

The aim of the workshop is to refine the research topics identified in the above mentioned report, provide more details and develop a roadmap with priorities and actions.

To better shape the workshop discussions, position papers (no longer than 2 pages) are submitted on any of the following topics:

  • Data management, communications & networks
  • Resource description & usage, resource management
  • Programmability & usability
  • Federation, interoperability, portability
  • Security
  • Business and cost models, expertise & usability

Andy will provide a position paper on cloud standards, federation, and interoperability from the ICCLab’s perspective. The slides will be online after the event.
