UCC 2019 Preliminary Call for Papers
12th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC2019)
December 2-5, 2019 – Auckland, New Zealand
Paper Submissions: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ucc2019
Context & Scope
Cloud computing has firmly established itself as an indispensable utility for the digital age. Cloud services consumers expect and rely on sufficient computing power, the availability of data and media, and that these
will be accessible across a range of devices.
The expectation now is that Cloud services providers are capable of maintaining streamed services that are always available. Also, social and technological challenges are met with the development and adoption of new technologies that provide a safer, more secure, and richer digital experience for users and customers. Therefore, it is essential that sound scientific principles underpinning cloud technology and its economic value to both service providers and consumers are expressed and understood.
UCC2019 is the premier IEEE/ACM conference for areas related to Cloud Computing as a Utility and provides an international forum for leading researchers and practitioners in this important and growing field.
UCC2019 will be hosted at Auckland University of Technology in the heart of New Zealand's city of sails.
UCC2019 is co-located with BDCAT2019 and offers a technical programme, workshops, tutorials, doctoral symposium, and cloud challenge.
