"Cloud" is a common metaphor for an Internet accessible infrastructure, hiding most of the implementation and deployment details in the field of ICT. Cloud computing is becoming a scalable services delivery and consumption platform. The backbone behind cloud computing includes service-oriented architecture (SOA) and virtualization of hardware and software.
The goal of cloud computing is to share resources among the cloud service consumers, cloud partners and cloud vendors in the cloud value chain. Cloud computing has been envisaged to be one of the main stream powering technologies of future ICT and next generation network.
The Cloud&Grid 2012 focus on Interoperability issues of grid and computing domain. It mainly focus on designing interoperable components, experiences and lessons learnt from developing interoperable services in the cloud and grid environment. This workshop aims at providing a forum to bring together researchers for sharing and exchanging cloud and Grid computing related research, technologies, experience, and lessons for building clouds of interoperability and coordination capabilities and services.
We believe this workshop will be a place to help the research community to define their novel ideas in the current state of grid-cloud interoperability issues. In addition the workshop will help to define the future goals and services that cloud needs to support in various intensive commercial and enterprise application.
The conference is now soliciting papers describing original work, unpublished and not currently submitted for publication elsewhere in the following areas, including but not limited to:
- Cloud Architectures
- Software, platform, hardware, and infrastructure as a Service
- Novel architectural models for cloud computing and grid-cloud interoperability
- Scalable resource management solutions
- Cloud resource provisioning with QoS
- High availability with failure detection, prediction, and recovery
- Identity, metering, and privacy in Cloud
- Management of virtualized resources
- Workload and resource scheduling
- New parallel / concurrent programming models for cloud computing
- Content Delivery Networks using Storage Clouds
- Interoperability / portability of applications and data between different cloud providers
- Virtualization Technologies
- Service-oriented Computing
- Management of Clouds
- Security issues in cloud and grid computing
- Fault tolerance, Reliability of applications and services running on the cloud
- Case studies of the cloud and grid computing

Paper Submission and Proceeding
There will be a combination of presentations including scientific papers. Prospective authors are invited, in the first instance, to submit papers for oral presentations in any of the areas of interest for this workshop.
Papers must strictly adhere to page limits as follows.
- Full Paper: 8 pages (Max 2 extra pages allowed at additional cost)
- Regular Paper: 6 pages (Max 2 extra pages allowed at additional cost)
- Poster Paper: 2 pages (FTRA Publishing Proceeding with ISBN)
Papers exceeding the page limits will be rejected without review. CLOUD&GRID 2012 submission should be made by system to http://www.editorialsystem.net/cloudgrid2012.
Instructions for papers in the Springer's CCIS (Note that the paper format of CCIS is the same as that of LNCS).
- Prepare your paper in the exact format as the sample paper for CCIS. Failure to do so may result in the exclusion of your paper from the proceedings. Please read the authors' instructions carefully before preparing your papers.
- Springer accepts both Microsoft Word and LaTex format in the Lecture Note Series. However, FTRA does not accept the use of LaTex. Therefore, you should use the Microsoft Word instead of using LaTex (The paper will be excluded from the proceeding if you use LaTex). Springer provides the relevant templates and sample files for both PC (sv-lncs.dot) and Mac (sv-lncs) environments.
- Please download word.zip (http://www.springer.com/cda/content/document/cda_downloaddocument/word.zip?SGWID=0-0-45-72919-0).
If you need more help on preparing your papers, visit Springer's LNCS web page (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-2-72376-0).
