Call for Contributions: IEEE/ACM UCC and BDCAT 2018, Zurich, Switzerland

by Josef Spillner

Block the dates in your calendar: December 17 to 21 is high cloud time in Switzerland!

Two computer science research laboratories at Zurich University of Applied Sciences, the Service Prototyping Lab and the ICCLab, are jointly going to host the 11th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC 2018) and the 5th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Big Data Computing, Applications and Technologies (BDCAT 2018) along with a number of satellite and co-located events from December 17 to 21 in Zurich, Switzerland. This pre-christmas conference week with prestigious conferences is a unique opportunity to bring together international researchers and practitioners in central Europe. Please consider supporting the event with corporate donations, tutorials, cloud challenge entries and other contributions. Your chance to demonstrate convincing cloud technology to the world! Contact the conference organisers for any details.

Technical paper submissions are furthermore open to a number of collocated workshops. Among them we would like to point out the 1st Workshop on Quality Assurance in the Context of Cloud Computing (QA3C 2018) and the 1st Workshop on Cloud-Native Applications Design and Experience (CNAX 2018) in which our research staff proudly serves as co-chairs. In total, 9 workshops are accepting papers now, a doctoral forum accepts research proposals, and a cloud challenge supports practical (demo-able) contributions with emphasis on reproducible impactful results.

Finally, we would like to mention specifically the subsequent European Symposium on Serverless Computing and Applications (ESSCA 2018) on December 21st which as a mixed industry-academic-community event acknowledges that FaaS-based applications have become mainstream but challenges remain. Got a talk on that topic? Just propose it informally to enrich the technical meeting with different perspectives. Along with ESSCA, on December 20 there will be the 4th edition of the International Workshop on Serverless Computing as part of UCC.

ICCLab @ CLEEN 2013 in Las Vegas

The “Dependability Modeling Framework” (DMF) becomes famous: Konstantin Benz and Thomas M. Bohnert will present their newest paper about the Dependability Modeling Framework at the First International Workshop on “Cloud Technologies and Energy Efficiency in Mobile Communication Network” (CLEEN) which takes place from September 2-5 in Las Vegas. The ICCLab researchers will show a methodology on how to test system architectures for their ability to implement High Availability characteristics in the cloud. Thomas M. Bohnert will also present a poster which shows how the DMF is applied to the Mobile Cloud Networking (MCN) project.

The CLEEN workshop is the first conference of the IEEE dedicated to the topic of energy efficiency in mobile communication. It is is a joint initiative of three ICT projects funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). CLEEN workshop is organized in conjunction with the VTC 2013-Fall conference.
