Call for Papers – CLOSER 2022


12th International Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science

Submission Deadline: November 30, 2021


April 27 – 29, 2022

Online Streaming

The International Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science (CLOSER), focuses on the highly important area of Cloud Computing, inspired by some latest advances that concern the infrastructure, operations, and available services through the global network. Further, the conference considers as essential the link to Services Science, acknowledging the service-orientation in most current IT-driven collaborations. The conference is nevertheless not about the union of these two (already broad) fields, but about Cloud Computing where we are also interested in how Services Science can provide theory, methods and techniques to design, analyze, manage, market and study various aspects of Cloud Computing.

CLOSER is organized in 9 major tracks:
1 – Services Science
2 – Data as a Service
3 – Cloud Operations
4 – Edge Cloud and Fog Computing
5 – Service Modelling and Analytics
6 – Mobile Cloud Computing
7 – Cloud Computing Fundamentals
8 – Cloud Computing Platforms and Applications
9 – Cloud Computing Enabling Technology
