EUBra-BIGSEA and SecureCloud organise the WACC workshop
International Workshop on Assured Cloud Computing and QoS aware Big Data
EUBra-BIGSEA (http://www.eubra-bigsea.eu) has driven the organisation of a joint International Workshop on Assured Cloud Computing and QoS Aware Big Data (WACC), held in conjunction with IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing in Madrid, Spain.
The Call For Papers has been launched and open until January 15th, 2017 to attract papers on some of the core topics of EUBra-BIGSEA: design, implementation, and evaluation of cloud services, data analytics tools, and security solutions to enable dependable Big Data applications.
Papers will appear in the workshop proceedings to be published by the IEEE and CCGrid.
SCOPE, GOALS AND VISION: WACC draws together researchers, practitioners, and thought leaders from government, industry, and academia. The workshop provides a forum of dialogue centered upon the development and advancement of an effort to design, implement, and evaluate dependable cloud architectures that can provide assurances with respect to security, reliability, and timeliness of computations (or services). Some new ensured target applications include, but are not limited to, dependable Big Data applications and streaming, data analytics and its tools, real-time computations for monitoring, control of cyber-physical systems such as power systems, and mission critical computations for rescue and recovery. The technical emphasis of WACC is design, implementation, and evaluation of cloud services, data analytics tools, and security solutions to enable dependable Big Data applications. Research on cloud services, ICT-skilled data scientists and application developers can find complementary solutions and partnerships to evaluate and integrate additional solutions. Data scientists can find new tools that could address existing needs.
