CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPATION

International Workshop on Automated Incident Management in Cloud (AIMC’15)
April 21-24 2015, Bordeaux, France
http://aimc.io/

Held in conjunction with European Conference on Computer Systems (EuroSys’15)
http://eurosys2015.labri.fr/

IMPORTANT DATES

Paper submission: February 10th, 2015
Notification of acceptance: March 9th, 2015
Camera ready papers: March 27th, 2015

SCOPE

The ongoing adoption of Cloud Computing has lead to an increase in the level of
complexity of the existing services and inherently higher risks for companies
willing to migrate in order to benefit from this new paradigm. These risks could
arise from deviations from the normal operation that could lead to a reduction
or interruption of the QoS, service shortages, or incidents.

Cloud Incident Management, as a novel research direction, is addressing specific
issues that are related to cloud services, bringing under the same umbrella
relevant topics including cloud management automation, SLA and QoS management
(and specifically management of SLA incidents), Cloud forensics and targeting
the resolution of deviations from normal operations.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

Authors are invited to submit papers that fall into the area of cloud incident
management. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Cloud incident management architectures, workflows and automated handling
    processes;
  • Techniques and algorithms for cloud incident detection and classification;
  • Root cause analysis in cloud computing;
  • Engineering of self-healing cloud autonomic systems;
  • Resilient service provisioning in cloud computing;
  • Cloud forensic investigations, electronic discovery (eDiscovery);
  • Audit, security, privacy, and compliance management for cloud computing;
  • Cloud quality management and service level agreement (SLA);
  • Cloud configuration, performance, and capacity management;
  • Novel fault-tolerance techniques and implementations of emerging software
    technologies;
  • Analysis of cloud anti-patterns for incident avoidance

PAPER SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION

Full papers will be submitted via EasyChair system at:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aimc15

The submission format will follow the recommended format of the EuroSys
conference, and must be no longer than 6 numbered pages, excluding references
for which additional pages can be used. Papers must be formatted using a 10pt
font, single spacing (minimum 11pt spacing between lines), two columns with 0.33
inches between columns, and a text box of 7 by 9 inches. The ACM SIGPLAN style
should achieve the required formatting if using the “10pt” and “preprint”
options (http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Author/).
