Second Workshop on Seamless Adaptive Multi-cloud Management of Service-based Applications

Held in conjunction with ESOCC 2015.
September 15, 2015. Taormina (Messina), Italy.

Deploying and managing in an efficient and adaptive way complex service-based applications across multiple heterogeneous clouds is one of the problems that have emerged with the cloud revolution. The current lack of universally accepted standards supporting cloud interoperability is severely affecting the portability of cloud-based applications across different platforms. At the same time, even at the level of a single cloud, adaptation of cloud services to their execution environment is strongly desirable in order to take appropriate actions in response to changes in the cloud highly dynamic environment. Adaptations can be performed at runtime (dynamic adaptation) and at development time. In the latter case runtime and contextual data provided to business application developers can allow them to enhance their applications based on the actual operating conditions.

The objective of the workshop is to provide a forum to discuss problems, solutions and perspectives of the ongoing research activities aimed at enabling an efficient and adaptive management of service-based applications across multiple clouds.

The workshop is promoted by the ongoing European research projects EC-FP7-ICT-610531 SeaClouds and EC-FP7-ICT-610802 CloudWave, whose ultimate objectives are to enable a seamless adaptive multi-cloud management of complex applications by supporting the distribution, monitoring and migration of application modules over multiple heterogeneous clouds, and to empower a new level of agile feedback-driven incremental development of cloud services by proposing a cloud infrastructure in which services dynamically adapt to their execution environment and developers are provided with runtime and contextual data.

The objective of the workshop is to provide a forum to discuss problems, solutions and perspectives of the ongoing research activities aimed at enabling an efficient and adaptive management of service-based applications across multiple clouds.

A non-exhaustive list of the topics of interest for the workshop is:

  • Design of portable multi-cloud applications
  • Feedback-driven development
  • Analysis of multi-cloud application specifications
  • Discovery of cloud services
  • Adaptive deployment of multi-cloud applications
  • Efficient and programmable monitoring of cloud infrastructures
  • Efficient monitoring of multi-cloud applications
  • Adaptive reconfiguration of multi-cloud applications
  • Algorithms and data models for infrastructure and application dynamic adaptations
  • Controlled migration of application modules across multiple clouds
  • Emerging standards supporting multi-cloud application management
  • Case studies and best practices in single-cloud and multi-cloud applications

Authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished research papers, position papers and work in progress. Regular papers must not exceed 12 pages, whereas position papers and work in progress must not exceed 8 pages. All of them should be written in English and following LNCS format. Please, submit papers via the SeaWave conference management tool (check in EasyChair submission system) in PDF format. For formatting instructions and templates see the Information for LNCS authors in Springer website. The workshop proceedings will be published in the Springer's Communications in Computer and Information Science series. Moreover, subject to the number and quality of contributions, a journal special issue with a selection of the best papers will be organised.
