11th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC)
Zurich, Switzerland
Dec 17-20, 2018

UCC is co-sponsored by IEEE TCSC & ACM SIGARCH and executed in-cooperation with ACM SIGHPC.

Cloud Computing delivers computational resources on-demand as services that are commoditized and delivered comfortably analogous to traditional utilities such as electricity, gas, water and telephony. Cloud service offerings for compute, storage and communication resources as well as for hosted software and data are growing at a tremendous rate. It is essential to understand how to effectively transform these services into Utilities that provide value to both users and providers. There is also increasing interest from commercial providers to offer business and revenue models around the services they offer. Understanding how these models could be used to provide utility for users, intermediary brokers (aggregators) and providers is also an area of active research. UCC is the premier IEEE/ACM conference covering all areas related to Cloud Computing as a Utility and provides an international forum for leading researchers and practitioners in this important and growing field. UCC 2018, to be held in Zurich, Switzerland, reflects the need to bring academics and industrial researchers together to discuss how to improve existing services and how to bring new applications into the cloud.

UCC 2018 will have a co-located 5th International Conference on Big Data Computing, Applications and Technologies (BDCAT 2018), an embedded Cloud Challenge along with other satellite events, and a subsequent Serverless Symposium. Do not miss the opportunity for discussing a full week of cloud and big data advances in central Europe at the end of the year!

This will be the 11th UCC along with the 5th BDCAT in a successful conference series of community-driven events.

Paper submission due: August 01, 2018
