CDCGM 2016 - Call for Papers
The wide adoption of Cloud Computing architectures for utility computing, big-data solutions, Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) and highly scalable and resilient commodity hardware, have allowed the developers and consumers to access a wide range of services and computational resources through a pay-per-use model.

Moreover, the ever increasing need to consume and the associated need for assuring services in larger and larger scale are forcing the providers to optimize resources efficiently in order to meet the web-scale demand of current computing landscape.

The computing, management and programming models have to evolve to address the complexity and the resulting tool fatigue in current distributed data centers. Novel unified computing theories and implementations are required to address the resiliency and efficiency of global web-scale services creation, delivery and assurance.

One of the main problems is that the current generation virtualization technologies cannot scale in a distributed environment where multiple owners provide infrastructure that is heterogeneous and is evolving rapidly. As a consequence, new architectures focusing on intelligent services deployed using dumb infrastructure on fat and stupid pipes must evolve.

Traditional grid computing elements, frameworks, middlewares, and computing models used by scientists and business analysists need to be integrated into a unified computing framework.

The goal of CDCGM 2016 is to attract young researchers, Ph.D. students, practitioners, and business leaders to bring contributions in the area of distributed Clouds, Grid and their management, especially in the developments of computing, management and programming models, technologies, framework and middleware.

You are invited to submit research papers to the following areas:

The 5th track on Convergence of Distributed Clouds, Grids and their Management will be held in Paris, France, from June 13, to June, 16, 2016 within the IEEE International Conference on Enabling Technologies: Infrastructure for Collaborative Enterprises (for more information please visit the IEEE WETICE 2016 web site).
