Special Issue on "Cloud Computing, Networking, and Service (CCNS) Management"


Paper submission date: June 15, 2011

Impact Factor: 1.356 (Q1 in Telecommunications and Q2 in Computer

Science, Information Systems), Journal Citation Reports, Thomson


Cloud computing, networking, and their related service management

including grid computing (as appropriate) have recently emerged out of

marketing hype to viable computing/networking tools for reducing

infrastructure deployment and service management costs without

sacrificing the quality of service/experience (QoS/E).

Although the virtualization of computing and networking resources, and

their self-organizing interconnection is at the heart of it, the

methods/mechanisms/tools that are used to expose (visualization)

resources and their utilization (the application programming

interfaces of APIs) for developing anything (*) as a service (*aaS)

are still ad-hoc and/or proprietary in nature. Security, privacy, and

multi-tenancy support requirements add another dimension to the

already complex set of Cloud ?computing and networking? management


This JNSM SI on CCNS management will include invited and

referee-recommended papers on the following topics:

- Cloud Applications and Services

--> Any computing, data-storing, and networking as a service

- API for enabling Cloud-based Services

--> Public, Private, and Hybrid (toolkit approach) APIs

- Virtualization (of any and all resources) and Hosting

--> Virtualization of Clients/Desktop, Applications, Services, and Databases

--> Distributed Intra- and Inter-Domain Storage/FileSystems/Database

--> Distributed Intra- and Inter-Domain Scheduling of resources

--> Resources Mobility and Multi-tenancy

- Protocols and Interoperability

--> Adaptive Protocols for Generic Cloud Services

--> Inter-Domain Service-Specific Adaptive Protocols

- Private, Public, Community, Hybrid Clouds

--> Addressability, Networking Extensions, Service Quality Agreement

- Cloud Service Logging and Monitoring

--> Including Auditing and Verification

- Soft and Hard Privacy and Security for Cloud-based Services

--> Process, Practice and Mechanisms

- Risk, Resiliency, and SLA (RRS) of Services in Clouds

--> Risk-tolerance, MMTF, MMTR, etc. for Components and Apps/Services


- Cloud Service and Infrastructure Management

--> Including Visualization, Automation, Debugging and Diagnosis

- Reports from CCNS management Experiments and Filed Deployments

--> University, Consortia, Industry/ Field Trials, etc.

- Mobility Management in Cloud Computing

--> Cloud service hosting mobility and service migration

--> Elastic computing using mobile codes

- Policy management in Cloud computing

--> Regulations and export control of using Cloud computing
