The technology industry and the scientific community have taken great strides in recent years toward implementing the technological paradigm of Cloud Computing (CC). This has resulted in the rapid growth of platforms, both private and public. There is not little doubt that the general social acceptance of this paradigm has in large part led to its development, due to the economic interests of large technology companies that underlie the purely technical aspects. From an external point of view, the CC platforms offer three well known types of services (software, platform and infrastructure), where novelty, with respect to previous technologies, lies in the ability to offer any type of computing ability as a service through the Internet.
New possibilities at a technological level lead to the birth of a new concept, elasticity. This concept is based on the just-in-time production method, which references the manner in which the services (computational) and the resources they require are produced. Thus, the services produced within the framework of CC only receive the amount of resources they need to maintain a uniform level of quality while immediately responding to demand.
This track provides an international forum to present and discuss the latest scientific developments and their effective applications, to assess the impact of the approach, and to facilitate technology transfer. This track provides a framework to present, to discuss, and to disseminate the latest developments and the most important outcomes related to Cloud Computing

Topics of Interest

From technology foundation perspective, Services Computing has become the default discipline in the modern services industry. The track will promote a forum to discuss this emerging enabling technology of the modern services industry and to explores modern services and software sciences in the field of Services Computing.

This track intends to bring together researchers and developers from industry and the academic world to report on the latest scientific and technical advances on the application of Cloud Computing, to discuss and debate the major issues, and to showcase the latest systems.

Some of the topics that will be dealt with under the track on Intelligent Information Fusion are (but not limited to):

  • Cloud Services
    • Service composition, workflows, coordination and cooperation
    • Service-based data integration
    • Service publishing and discovery
