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

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
