Papers of particular merit will be invited to be extended and submitted for a special issue of the Elsevier journal of Future Generation Computer Systems (FGCS).
MoCS 2011 is the first workshops targeted at cloud computing that has been organized in association with the IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications (ISCC 2011).The long tradition of ISCC as cross-interest forum make it a great place to host the MoCS workshop, whose interests cover the whole virtualization stack, from the kernel up to the application, service and management level.
The ambition and mission of MoCS 2011 is to put on the foreground all the issues about management of cloud systems at different layer of abstractions, and to bring together different ongoing research efforts related to this field. This year, special focus will be on the challenging management issues related to the delivery of efficient Green computing solutions over the Cloud.
Starting with a rigorous review process and following with the open forum approach, that promotes interaction and discussion between Workshop contributors, we expect the First Workshop on Management of Cloud Systems (MoCS) to provide relevant and knowledgeable feedback that will assist all authors to significantly enhance the quality of their work.
