International Journal of Cloud Computing

As the paradigm service-oriented architecture gains more prominence in the development of collaborative applications, the way of management of these applications is becoming a critical feature in order to provide a better quality of service. Cloud Computing is a technology that provides on-demand access to massively scalable resources in the field of Service Computing. The technical foundations of Cloud Computing include service-oriented architecture (SOA) and virtualizations of hardware and software. It has emerged as a new paradigm for deploying, managing and offering collaborative services through a shared infrastructure.

Provisioning of SOA and Cloud presents a new set of emerging issues and challenges that are expected to be identified and resolved by the research community. It includes issues of the proposed approaches at several levels: modeling, composition, collaboration, planning, scheduling, monitoring and analysis.

This Track intends to provide an effective forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange innovative ideas and state-of-the-art research, share experiences and lessons learned from academic research projects as well as real world projects.


Our goal is to bring together researchers and practitioners to facilitate stimulating discussions on the different challenges and requirements of provisioning and management of SOA and Cloud. We are soliciting contributions from both academia and industrials on the following topics (the list is not exhaustive):

  • Collaborative technologies for QoS Management of SOA and Cloud architectures
  • Service Virtualization for SOA
  • Collaborative Management of Virtualized Cloud Resources
  • Monitoring of Cloud Services
  • Reconfiguration and recovery of Cloud Services
  • Modeling and Specification of collaborative Cloud services
  • Service Level Agreement (SLA) Negotiation, Automation and Orchestration for Cloud Computing
  • Cloud Federation
  • Availability and Reliability of Collaborative Cloud
  • Cloud and SOA Security and Privacy
