Workshop on Cloud Networks - WCN 2016, 6th July 2016

The workshop brings together well-experienced researchers, engineers, and practitioners from academia, industry and government to discuss and advance the state-of-the-art research in the emerging area of cloud-based networks and applications. In this first edition, the WCN is supported by the EUBrasilCloudForum Project (http://eubrasilcloudforum.eu).

This workshop will present unpublished, novel research work related to the latest challenges, technologies, solutions and techniques related to networking within the cloud and will cover aspects ranging from security to resources’ management towards an efficient and effective cloud deployment and hosting of the various emerging applications and services. Effective solutions related to the placement, sizing, bursting, and migration of compute, storage, and data resources within the cloud network(s) become critical to the deployment of elastic and agile applications.

Main topics of interest:

  • Network function virtualization
  • SDN-enabled cloud datacenters
  • Cloud-based services for IoT and Smart Cities
  • Virtual private cloud networking
  • Intra and inter-cloud networking
  • Deployment of cloud apps and services
  • Big Data application provisioning on the cloud
  • Cloud bursting techniques
  • Scalability and elasticity techniques
  • Containers vs. VMs
  • Placement and migration of cloud resources within the cloud
  • Impact of network utilization and co-located applications on performance
  • Cloud resource management and capacity engineering
  • Trust, security and privacy in the cloud
