Subject: HotCloud '10 Submission Deadline Approaching

From: Lionel Garth Jones <lgj at usenix.org>

We're writing to remind you that submission deadline for the 2nd USENIX
Workshop on Hot Topics in Cloud Computing (HotCloud '10) program
committee is approaching.

Please submit your work by Tuesday, March 23, 2010.

Cloud computing has attracted a great deal of attention both from the
research community and from industry. The cloud computing paradigm has
evolved over the years from a basic IT infrastructure (data centers) to
platform as a service (PaaS), and then from software as a service (SaaS)
to complete service enablement on a hosted infrastructure (IaaS). At the
same time, virtualization has emerged as a key enabler for the cloud
computing paradigm. Several challenges arise in the design,
implementation, and deployment of virtualized clouds.

HotCloud will provide a forum for academics as well as practitioners in
the field to share their experience, leverage each other's perspectives,
and identifynew/emerging "hot" trends in this area.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

* Platform as a service
* Software as a service
* Infrastructure as a service
* Elasticity and availability in a cloud
* Multi-tenancy
* Storage cloud
* Charging models and economics
* Power-efficient ("green") computing for clouds
* Virtual appliance management and composition
* Monitoring, troubleshooting, and failure recovery
* Cloud management and configuration
* Programming models
* Security and privacy in clouds
* New applications for clouds
* Mobile clouds
* Cloud usage scenarios
