Call for Posters

The International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (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 2016, to be held in Shanghai (China), is the 9th event in a successful conference series. UCC 2016 will happen as cloud computing consolidates worldwide as the 21st century utility, and is therefore of high relevance for both academic research and industrial innovation. Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research posters and demos to the UCC 2016 conference.

The submission areas of interest for posters and demos include but are not limited to:

  • Big Data and Analytics
  • Principles and theoretical foundations of Utility Computing, including pricing and service models
  • Policy languages and Programming models
  • Architectural models to achieve Utility in Clouds
  • Designs and deployment models for Clouds: private, public, hybrid, federated, aggregated
  • Cloud Computing middleware, stacks, tools, delivery networks and services at all layers (XaaS)
  • Virtualization technologies and other enablers
  • Economic models and scenarios of use
  • Scalability and resource management: brokering, scheduling, capacity planning, parallelism and elasticity, as well as marketplaces
  • Cloud management: autonomic, adaptive, self-*, SLAs, performance models and monitoring
  • Applications: games, social networks, scientific computing (e-science) and business
  • Mobile and energy-efficient use of Clouds
  • Beyond technology: Cloud business and legal implications, such as security, privacy, trust and jurisdiction especially in Utility contexts

Poster Presentation:

The authors of accepted posters will be given a 3-minutes time slot to present their work, following the three-minute thesis (3MT) style, at the UCC 2016 Poster Session. The authors will also present their posters and discuss their research with the conference attendees and visitors in the poster exhibition session. The recommended poster size is A0 (33.1 x 46.8 in, portrait). 

Submission Guidelines:

Authors are required to submit a 2-page short paper describing the poster/demo content, research, relevance and importance to the cloud computing community. If accepted, these 2-page short papers will be published in the proceedings of the conference. Participants will be able to display the poster and showcase the demo during the conference. Authors are invited to submit their contributions electronically through EasyChair:
