Cloud computing has moved the center of gravity of application distributed execution, by exploiting virtualization at different layers and by adding a complexity level to the scheduling problem. Our dependability on this paradigm has increased to the point where our vital services pertaining to the research, industry or even lifestyle domain have been massively moved onto cloud infrastructures.
Then, what happens when the sky falls down?
In order to provide answers, I am co-chairing with Prof. Rafael Tolosana-Calasanz and Prof. José Ángel Bañares the First International Workshop on fault Tolerant Architectures for Reliable Distributed Infrastructures and Services (TARDIS2011). Also, Prof. Eduardo Huedo is serving at the Program Committee. This workshop will take place in Melbourne (Australia) during the 4th IEEE International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC 2011), on 5-8 December 2011.
The paper submission system is open and these are the important dates:
Deadline for submissions: 17 July 2011
Acceptance notification: 30 August 2011
Deadline for camera ready contributions: 25 September 2011
Hope to meet you in Melbourne!
