Cloud Computing: First International Conference, CloudComp 2009, Munich, Germany, October 19-21, 2009, Revised Selected Papers (Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences #34) (Paperback)
Welcome totheproceedings ofCloudComp 2009. A computing cloudis more thana collection of computer resources, because itpro vides mechanisms to manage those resources. In a cloud computing platform, software is migrating from the desktop to the "clouds," promising users, at any time and anywhere, access totheirprograms anddata. Thisyear, 44 academic, industrial andstudent papers from all overthe world were submitted, of which 17were accepted as regular longpapers. Additionally, threewere included as shortpapers on hottopics. The Program Committee appreciates the time andeffortall of the researchers put into preparing theirpapers. Many thanks also to themembers oftheProgram Committee andtheexternal reviewers foralloftheirhard workin reading, evaluating, and providing detailed feedback. Without the contribu tions of both of these groups, CloudComp would not have been such a lively symposium. The symposium featured keynote addresses by Jesus Villasante, Head of Unit, European Commission, Dane Walther, Director of Custom Engineering, Akamai Technologies Inc. Cambridge, MA, USA, Greg Malewicz, Google, Mountain View, CA, USA, andMauro Campanella, Consortium GARR, Italy. A scientific visitof the Leibniz Supercomputer Centre (LRZ), Bavarian Academy of Science, Garching (Munich), was organized during the conference. The visit was hosted byProf.A. Bode. We feel that the symposium willgrow and develop in its service to the research community within bothacademia andindustry.
