The 11th Cloud Control Workshop is held at the Swedish Castle Haga Slott, by the Mälaren Sea (not to be confused by the Haga Slott of the Swedish Royal family). The format of the workshop mimics that of the successful 7th and 9th Cloud Control Workshops.
As always, the aim of the 11th Cloud Control Workshop is to foster multidisciplinary research in cloud management, leveraging expertise in areas such as autonomic computing, control theory, distributed systems, energy management, machine learning, mathematical statistics, performance modeling, systems management, etc.
By providing an understanding of the research challenges ahead and by fostering multi-disciplinary research collaborations, the ambition is to shape the future of cloud management. Expected attendees are leading researchers from any scientific discipline with potential to contribute to this multidisciplinary topic.
The workshop format will be to mainly focus on multi-disciplinary research discussions in parallel sessions but also include some keynotes and some short scientific presentations on planned, ongoing, or completed research. Participants are encouraged to propose discussion topics beforehand and to take active part in any discussions with the ambition to make progress on any topic of interest to the participants. The 11th edition will strive for a strong focus on cloud management using the techniques listed above, rather than on cloud in general. The format will to a large extent resemble the format of the 7th and 9th edition. Hence, there will be no papers and no proceedings, but plenty of time for presentations and discussions among an interesting and multidisciplinary group of researchers from academia and industry.
The workshop presentations include some keynotes, invited short presentations, very short presentations by young researchers, and a substantial number of longer discussion sessions (typically held in 3- or 4-way parallel sessions). An important part of the meeting is also the opportunity to informal discussions in a nice atmosphere, with all participant at the same place and not many other people around. For an example of the program, see the Program of the 7th edition and the Program of the 9th edition.
