*The Six IEEE International Workshop on Cloud Computing Systems, Networks,
and Applications (CCSNA)*

*organized with*


*IEEE  Mobile Adhoc and Sensor Systems (MASS 2017)*


*Oct 22, 2017 – Oct 25, 2017 // Orlando, FL, USA*

Cloud Computing, as well as Cloud-inspired business models, enable
on-demand access to a shared pool of resources, namely computing, storage,
networks, services, and applications. With the advent of Cloud-based
systems, cloud operators have been aiming at reliable, secured,
privacy-preserving and cost-efficient cloud design and management. As the
Cloud infrastructure aims at offering various IT resources as services,
requirements of Cloud applications vary based on the resources which are
requested as services. Thus, the resources may refer to heavy computation
resources, massive storage resources, high-capacity network resources and
so on. The heterogeneity of cloud applications leads to the challenge of
holistic design of a robust Cloud system which can oversee and handle the
diverse needs of numerous types of applications. On the other hand, these
challenges enforce cooperation of various players in the Cloud system, each
of which focuses on a different segment such as network, computing,
applications, and systems.

The Sixth International workshop on Cloud Computing Systems, Networks, and
Applications (CCSNA-2017) aims at the crossroads between scientists,
researchers, practitioners and students from diverse domains in Cloud
computing research. The workshop aims at attracting contributions of system
and network design that can support existing and future applications and
services. Researchers are encouraged to submit original research
contributions in all major areas, which include, but are not limited to:

*Submission Procedure :*

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that
are not currently under review elsewhere. Allsubmissions should be written
in English with a maximum length of 9 single-spaced, double-column pages
using 10pt fonts on 8.5 x 11 inch paper, including all figures, tables, and
references, in PDF format. Authors must use the Manuscript Templates for
IEEE Conference Proceedings. Accepted papers will appear in the conference
proceedings published by IEEE and will be presented at the conference.
Based on TPC reviews and discussions, some papers may be accepted as 5-page
short papers, in addition to the regular 9 page papers. For all papers,
IEEE reserves the right to exclude the paper from distribution after the
conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented
at the conference..
