With the rapid development of processing and storage technologies and the success of the Internet, computing resources have become cheaper, more powerful and more ubiquitously available than ever before. This technological trend has enabled the realization of next generation’s computing infrastructure called cloud computing. Cloud computing is a model of service delivery and access where dynamically scalable and virtualized resources are provided as a service over the Internet. It promises unlimited, cost-effective and agile computing resources for users. However, this new computing paradigm also poses a unique set of challenges to both cloud providers and users.
The first International Symposium on Cloud Computing: Architecture, Applications, and Approaches (CCA-2014) intends to provide an effective forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange innovative ideas and state-of-the-art research, share experiences and lessons learned from academic research projects as well as real world projects in all aspects of cloud computing. CCA-2014 is affiliated with Third International Conference on Advances in Computing, Communications and Informatics (ICACCI-2014), Delhi, India. ICACCI-2014 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society and IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society. The accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
