The 6th International Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science – CLOSER 2016 Venue: Rome, Italy Event date: 23 - 25 April, 2016 Regular Papers Submission: October 27, 2015 Authors Notification: February 1, 2016 Camera Ready and Registration: February 16, 2016 Position Papers Paper Submission: January 5, 2016 Authors Notification: February 9, 2016 Camera Ready and Registration: February 23, 2016 Workshops Workshop Proposal: November 11, 2015 Doctoral Consortium Paper Submission: February 16, 2016 Authors Notification: February 24, 2016 Camera Ready and Registration: March 4, 2016 Special Sessions Special Session Proposal: November 20, 2015 Tutorials, Demos and Panel Proposals December 16, 2015 Scope: The 6th International Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science, CLOSER 2016, focuses on the emerging area of Cloud Computing, inspired by some latest advances that concern the infrastructure, operations, and available services through the global network. Further, the conference considers as essential the link to Services Science, acknowledging the service-orientation in most current IT-driven collaborations. The conference is nevertheless not about the union of these two (already broad) fields, but about Cloud Computing where we are also interested in how Services Science can provide theory, methods and techniques to design, analyze, manage, market and study various aspects of Cloud Computing. CLOSER 2016 will be held in conjunction with CSEDU 2016, SMARTGREENS 2016, WEBIST 2016, VEHITS 2016 and IoTBD 2016. CONFERENCE AREAS: Each of these topic areas is expanded below but the sub-topics list is not exhaustive.
