The 3rd International Workshop on Trust in Cloud Computing (IWTCC 2016)

The 3rd International Workshop on Trust in Cloud Computing

Collocated with 9th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing

December 6-9, 2016

Tongji University – Shanghai, China

 Call for papers

 Trust is a key requirement for the successful uptake and operation of Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC). Service consumers must have belief that their data is safe and protected and service providers must provide sufficient assurances to satisfy these beliefs. However many challenges need to be overcome before this is possible. A myriad of trust relationships can arise between the different players in the UCC service delivery chain and these need to be understood and described as do the consequential assurance approaches that may be required. Complex, and varying, UCC service delivery environments may require very different and context dependent mechanisms to provide the assurances needed. This workshop aims to explore approaches to the definition and establishment of trust relationships in a dynamic and evolving UCC service environment and to investigate mechanisms, methodologies and technologies to enable the provision of assurances that are needed to fulfil users trust beliefs.

The IWTCC will be held in Shangai, China in December, 2016. It provides a forum for researchers world-wide to present their latest work in privacy, security and trust in the cloud, and to show how this research can be used to enable innovation.


We encourage submissions on theoretical as well as experimental studies related to all aspects of trust and security and privacy in the cloud. Topics of interests include, but are NOT limited to, the following categories:

  • Trust models in UCC.
  • Cryptographic techniques for privacy preservation
  • Identity, Authentication and key management
  • Formal verification for cloud architecture
  • Practical cryptographic protocols for cloud security
  • Intrusion Detection Technologies for cloud contexts
  • SDN Security
  • Provenance and digital forensics
  • Monitoring systems in the cloud
  • Remote attestation mechanisms in clouds
  • Trusted computing technology and clouds
  • Cloud Integrity and Audit
  • Privacy and security in Vehicular cloud
  • Multi-tenancy and trust in cloud computing


Important dates and Submission

  • Paper Submissions Due:                5th August, 2016
  • Notification of Acceptance:           1st September, 2016
  • Early Registration Deadline:         21st September, 2016

Authors are invited to submit papers electronically through Easychair. Manuscripts may not exceed six (6) letter size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references using the IEEE format for conference proceedings (print area of 6-1/2 inches (16.51 cm) wide by 8-7/8 inches (22.51 cm) high, two-column format with a 3/8 inch (0.81 cm) space between them, single-spaced 10-point Times fully justified text). Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines will be rejected without review and further action may be taken, including (but not limited to) notifications sent to the heads of the institutions of the authors and sponsors of the conference. Additional pages may be purchased (in some circumstances) subject to approval by the proceedings chair. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the workshop.

Electronic submissions must be in the form of a readable PDF file. Manuscripts must be received by August 5, 2015.
