CALL FOR PAPERS: Workshop on Cloud Computing Issues and Trends, October 7-9, 2013, London UK


in conjunction with Science and Information (SAI) Conference 2013

Cloud Computing poses a major shift in the IT industry. It is a new paradigm for reducing the cost 
of computing resources and staffing. Cloud computing implements a Pay-for-what-you-Use and 
Expand-per-your-Needs model. Cloud computing is the use of computing resources including 
software and hardware as a service over the Internet. It also reduces the number of staffing 
required to administer and maintain these resources. It provides different types of services 
including Infrastructure as a service (IaaS), Platform as a service (PaaS), Software as a service 
(SaaS), Storage as a service (STaaS), ID as a service (IDaaS), Security as a service (SECaaS), 
and Administration as a service (AaaS). However, since all these services are Internet-based 
services and are based on remote utilization of software and hardware resources, this leads 
to serious challenge in securing an adequate bandwidth for addressing the increased traffic 
due to these Internet-based services. The communication in the cloud over the Internet is 
known to be a communication in the public; therefore, extra measures are needed to maintain 
the privacy and confidentiality of communicated data. The concentration of hardware and software 
resources and of technical support and staffing to administer these resources in the cloud has 
its economic impact.
