International Workshop on the Future of Cloud Computing and Cloud Services
(FutureCloud 2017)

In conjunction with the 9th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing Technology and Science (IEEE CloudCom 2017)

11-14 December 2017
Hong Kong


The Cloud Computing Futures workshop seeks to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of emerging ideas and work at the frontiers of cloud computing technologies and services. The goal of the workshop is to facilitate the exchange of ideas in the myriad of areas that are at the core of cloud computing, as well as areas that overlap with cloud computing. The areas to be covered by the workshop include architecture, services, security, high performance computing, edge computing, and the internet of things. The workshop is open for submission of preliminary work which is not quite mature enough for the main conference. Papers describing original research on both theoretical and practical aspects of cloud computing are solicited.


Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, recent advances in:

Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit research and application papers according the following guidelines: two columns, single-spaced, including figures and references, using 10 pt fonts and number each page.

We solicit the submission of research papers (6 pages) representing original, previously unpublished work. Submitted papers will be evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition.

Duplicate submissions are not allowed. A submission is considered to be a duplicate submission if it has been submitted to (or if it has been already accepted to be published in) other conferences/workshops/journals. Duplicate submissions thus will be automatically rejected without review.

Contact author must provide the following information: Paper title, authors' names, affiliations, postal address, phone, fax, and e-mail address of the author(s), about 200-250 word abstract, and about five keywords.

Papers should be submitted via the CloudCom submission page, selecting the FutureCloud workshop as track:

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the CloudCom conference and present the paper in the workshop. No-show papers will be removed from the digital library after the workshop. Guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) will be given after the notification of acceptance.
