 2011 International Workshop on

Cloud Computing and Services (CCS’11)




At the 5th International Conference on Complex Distributed Systems (CODS'2011)

Mannheim, Germany, 5-7 December 2011




Cloud Computing is currently one of the hottest topics in information technology and seen as one of the very piers of the Future Internet. The benefits and the risks of the delivery of all types of services via the Cloud are discussed in Industry/business, academia and governments. Technically, cloud computing instruments a new paradigm of service-oriented utility computing by offering “Everything as a Service (XaaS)”. With Cloud Computing the processing of information will become a pervasively accessible utility and commodity. Despite the distributed locations and heterogeneous control and administration of Cloud resources, Cloud Computing will be easy-to-use and indispensable for everyday life and working.


CCS’11 provides a premier forum for researchers and engineers alike to present cutting-edge research and development progresses in all areas related to architecture, design, implementation, application and evaluation of cloud computing, services and environments.
