The Call for Papers for the 3rd USENIX Workshop on Hot Topics in Cloud
Computing (HotCloud '11) is now available. On behalf of the HotCloud '11
Program Committee, we invite you to submit papers that describe novel
research directions, as well as practical experiences, in the area of
cloud computing.

HotCloud brings together researchers and practitioners from academia and
industry working on cloud computing technologies. There are many
challenges in the design, implementation, and deployment of cloud
computing, such as automated service provisioning, service monitoring
and management, resource elasticity and interference/isolation between
users, cloud programming models, economic models, charging and
accounting, and service creation using virtual appliances.

We believe that cloud computing will benefit from close interaction
between researchers and industry practitioners, so that the research can
inform current deployments and deployment challenges can inform new
research. In support of this, HotCloud will provide a forum for both
academics and practitioners to share their experience, leverage each
other's perspectives, and identify new/emerging "hot" trends in this
important 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
* Monitoring, troubleshooting, and failure recovery
* Cloud management and configuration
* Programming models
* Virtual appliance management and composition
* Security and privacy in clouds
* New applications for clouds
* Mobile clouds
* Cloud usage scenarios

Submissions are due March 7, 2011, at 11:59 p.m. EST. For more details

We look forward to receiving your submissions!
