“Cloud Computing & You”
3rd Cloud Computing International Conference (CloudViews 2011)
October 17-18, 2011
Porto, Portugal
EuroCloud Portugal

General Chair: Inês Dutra, University of Porto,

Recognizing the potential of the Cloud Computing paradigm for ICT evolution, the CloudViews.Org project was launched in the end of 2007. Initially created by independent entrepreneurs, researchers and technical staff of the Porto Polytechnic Institute, CloudViews.Org aimed at promoting and discussing technologies related with Cloud Computing. Following the CloudViews.Org spirit, the EuroCloud Portugal Association (, a non profit organization, was created in January 2010.

The CloudViews project has already organized two international conferences on Cloud Computing. “To Cloud or not to Cloud” was the main theme of the first edition, held in Porto, Portugal, in 2009. “Cloud Ecosystem” was the theme of CloudViews 2010, which was also held in Porto, Portugal with the help of the Eurocloud Association. In that edition, academia, business people and decision makers gathered together to present their views, which motivated a lively debate where all ICT players were challenged to think about how to achieve a true Cloud Ecosystem.

CloudViews 2011, in its third edition, moves a step forward by defying academia, business people and decision makers to think about their relationship with the clouds. “Cloud Computing & You”, the main theme of the third edition of CloudViews has as its main goal to raise awareness and analyse the impact of Cloud Computing on small and medium business (SME), as well as on individual users.

Around the theme “Cloud Computing & You”, CloudViews 2011 welcomes contributions from several fields related to cloud computing, including, but not limited to, scientific computing applications, performance evaluation and resource management, predictability and provision platforms, storage clouds architectures and implementations, cloud computing security: models and frameworks, cloud interoperability, scheduling mechanisms, elastic platforms, service level agreements, fault tolerant architectures and implementations, human factors in computing systems, cloud usability, and business models in the cloud.

Submissions of full (8 pages maximum) and short papers (4 pages maximum) must conform to 2 columns IEEE style, in PDF format and offer new, unpublished, original contributions. All contributions must be written in English and submitted electronically through the CV2011 Easy Chair conference system at

Reviews will be double-blinded. Prepare your paper without any authors names or affiliations and avoid explicit self-references such as “in a previous work, we [ref]...”. Give preference to sentences like: “in a previous work, Smith et al [ref]...”. Also avoid the inclusion of acknowledgements and references to funding agencies in your submission version.
