The IEEE Services 2019 conference was held in the Universitá degli Studi di Milano in Milan, Italy in July and we were there to participate and cover it!Continue reading
CCGRID 2019 took place in Larnaca, Cyprus in May and, though reporting on it with a bit of a delay, of course, we could not miss it. Team member Panos Gkikopoulos was there to present our paper, Extensible Declarative Management of Cloud Resources and Providers, at the CROSSCLOUD workshop.Continue reading
The Service Prototyping Lab will offer three in-depth presentations and hands-on sessions on several of its research topics and recent results in September and October. We hope to demonstrate valuable work and get feedback for our future research.

From June 24 to 27, an academic double-conferences has been taking place in Prague: IC2E 2019, the venerable seventh IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering, and ICFC 2019, the recently spun off first IEEE International Conference on Fog Computing. The Service Prototyping Lab at Zurich University of Applied Sciences contributed a tutorial on Kubernetes application engineering on the first conference day. The important research-inspired message conveyed is that Kubernetes is a nice container management platform, but not a cloud platform per se, and characterised by a lack of tools to ensure simplicity and quality in applications, and still emerging understanding of how to design applications in a technically and economically optimal way. This blog post reports on some of the conference discussion topics as a service for those who could not attend..Continue reading
From the 10th until 13th of December 2018 in Nicosia, Cyprus, the 10th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing Technology and Science took place. This slightly delayed conference report briefly recapitulates the event from our subjective participation perspective.
From December 17 to 20, 2018, our lab proudly hosted the 11th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC) along with its collocated event 5th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Big Data Computing, Applications and Technologies (BDCAT). We welcomed around 200 attendees in the Zurich Technopark, making it a record event in the multi-year conference series, the biggest neutral cloud conference in Switzerland, and a successful venue to present and discuss recent advances around the wider field of utility, big data and cloud computing. This blogpost briefly summarises the event and gives some information about how it came all together.
At Zurich University of Applied Sciences, in particular at the Service Prototyping Lab, we are very proud to announce a packed global technology event week which brings many international experts in cloud computing, big data computing and serverless computing into little Switzerland. Join us for more than 140 unique technical and scientific talks over five days!
11th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing – UCC 2018
5th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Big Data Computing, Applications and Technologies – BDCAT 2018
From the 17th to the 20th of December, we expect around 200 attendees at the Technopark to discuss trends and progress on many cloud and big data topics. Apart from the two main conference tracks, there will be a cloud challenge, a doctoral forum, a posters presentation, 4 tutorials, and 8 workshops on diverse emerging topics (e.g. cloud-native, sustainable big data for environments, software testing, security and trust). Broad industry support is lined up to support the event with attendees and corporate support. Daypasses start at 350 CHF.
European Symposium on Serverless Computing and Applications – ESSCA 2018
In addition to UCC and BDCAT, we offer a community-priced event on the 21st of December where starting with 50 CHF you can attend to listen to 16 expert talks and tutorials on the trend topics of serverless computing, FaaS and cloud functions.

The European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing (ESOCC) is among the most recognised community-run venues to discuss technological advances among researchers and practitioners. Its 7th edition (ESOCC 2018) just took place in Como, Italy, and we were participating for three reasons: to present a paper on migrating multi-container applications between clouds, to sense new challenges ahead especially in the cloud-native space, and to connect stronger to fellow researchers from across the continent.
