-[Call for Papers] ICSE Software Engineering for Cloud Computing (SECLOUD) Workshop
(apologies for the cross posting)
Please consider submitting a paper to the ICSE 2011 Software Engineering for Cloud Computing (SECLOUD) Workshop to be held Sunday, May 22, 2011, at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort in Waikiki, Honolulu, HI.
This workshop focuses on identifying the grand challenges that lay before us in the realm of software engineering for cloud computing. We will debate existing notions of SE for the construction of cloud services and for their deployment. We will discuss and evangelize individual successes in the field and attempt to identify the key ingredients that enabled that success. Participants in this workshop will take a role in helping to formulate a long-term, concrete software engineering agenda for cloud and will have an opportunity to share in and contribute to the existing “tribal knowledge” for cloud-related software engineering.
We invite high quality submissions of technical and research papers, as well as research demonstrations describing original and unpublished results of research relevant to software engineering for cloud. Authors are asked to reserve a section in their submitted papers for identifying their suggested near-term and long-term challenge areas for the field.
The workshop seeks to focus discussion around the ways that the disruptive effect of cloud computing is engendering a new set of principles and approaches to software engineering. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Topic Areas of Interest:
- Agile Software development on the cloud
- Architecting Applications using the cloud
- Benchmarking and Performance Metrics in the cloud
- Cloud Application Reliability
- Distributed collaboration on the cloud
- Interoperability and Portability challenges in multi-cloud environments
- Open Source Cloud Environments: Hadoop, Eucalyptus and other programming paradigms, languages and environments for the Cloud
- Requirements Elicitation effectiveness when using cloud service abstractions
- Secure Software Engineering in the Cloud
- Software Engineering Practices using popular cloud vendor services
- Software Engineering tools
- Software Project Estimations, Testing,Verification and Validation over cloud service abstractions
Submissions may take one of two acceptable forms. Research paper contributions may be submitted with a maximum length of 7 pages, and must conform to ICSE 2011 paper formatting guidelines . Research demonstration submissions are limited to 1 page in the conference proceedings and will be given during he two 15-minute breakout sessions.
All submissions must be in English and in PDF format . An abstract must accompany each research paper contribution. The workshop website  will be updated to include a link to the CyberChairPRO online submission system once it has been set up. All accepted papers will be published and disseminated on the workshop website after the conclusion of the workshop.
Review and Evaluation Criteria:
Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee and will be assessed on the basis of originality, importance and relevance of contribution to SE for cloud, soundness, quality of presentation, and an appropriate comparison to related work. The program committee as a whole will make final decisions about acceptance.
