The 10th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing
Technology and Science (CloudCom 2018)

Hilton Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus, 10-13 December, 2018


*** Paper Submission Deadline: 6 July, 2018 (extended) ***

CloudCom is the premier conference on Cloud Computing worldwide,
attracting researchers, developers, users, students and practitioners from
the fields of big data, systems architecture, services research, virtualization,
security and privacy, high performance computing, always with an emphasis
on how to build cloud computing platforms with real impact. The conference
is co-sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE),
is steered by the Cloud Computing Association, and draws on the excellence
of its world-class Program Committee and its participants. CloudCom 2018
will be held in Nicosia, Cyprus between 10-13 December, 2018.
