International Workshop on Security and Performance in Cloud Computing—spcloud

(SPCLOUD 2011)
As part of (workshop no. 15)
The 2011 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation
(HPCS 2011)

Cloud computing systems open a new perspective on almost every aspect of computing. Some security issues raised by cloud computing are alleviated by virtualization but the performance overheads should be balanced against this advantage. Dynamic scalability or “elasticity” will help generalize high-performance computing and very large data sets in applications. But the actual gains in performance depend heavily on the predictability of physical and virtualized resources. Consequently, the balancing of performance against security and the adaptation of HPC or VLDB techniques to cloud computing are of strategic importance and will have long-lasting scientific content.

The SPCLOUD workshop will bring together researchers and IT practitioners to present new results and ongoing work on the themes of security and performance in the cloud.

The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

* Reliability and Security of Cloud Environments
* Monitoring for Cloud-Based Applications
* Cryptography and Crypto-Protocols for Cloud Computing Systems
* Parallel Computing With Cloud-Based Systems
* Very Large Databases In The Cloud: Transactions, Backup, Security, Scalability
* Security and Virtualization. Insiders Threats
* Risk Management in Cloud Computing Environments
* Usability and Human Centered Security for Clouds
* Trusted Data Sharing and Shared Technology Issues
* Untrusted Cloud Servers and Networks
* Privacy Protection in Cloud Platforms and Operations
* Autonomic Security in Cloud Computing
* Intercloud Security Issues and Considerations
* Insecure Interfaces and APIs
* Security Models for New Services
* Services Hijacking
* Interoperable Identity Management
* Information Hiding in Cloud Computing
* Forensics in the Clouds
* Cloud Infrastructure Security
