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:

Cloud computing systems and networking- principles, designs, analyses, and performance
Big data, data centers, and cloud managements
Cloud services, applications, security, and interdisciplinary topics
Submission Procedure :

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not currently under review elsewhere. All
​ ​
submissions 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..
