14th Cloud Control Workshop, April 2-4, 2019

The 14th Cloud Control Workshop is held at Hotel Forsen, Vindeln, on April 2 – 4, 2019. The 14th edition of the workshop is held at small scale, primarily open to the teams at Umeå and Lund University previously behind the Cloud Control project and to PhD students in Autonomous Clouds and Networks within The Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP).

The  workshop is aimed 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.

Workshop format
The workshop addresses multi-disciplinry research discussions and short scientific presentations on planned, ongoing, or completed research. All participants are encouraged to propose discussion topics on before hand and to take active part in any discussions with the ambition to make progress on any topic of interest to the participants. On this edition, PhD students are strongly recommended to give short presentations. The program is organized in a single track but participants are encouraged to engage in planned or spontaneous break out sessions to initiate new collaborations or spend time engaging in ongoing ones.

Workshop Details

The workshop is held at the small Hotel Forsen, where participants will stay in single or shared rooms depending on the number of participants.

For joint team building activities, cross country skiing is proposed. A skiing track is available on 1500 m distance from the venue.

We in particular encourage participants that never have practice cross-country skiing before to take the opportunity opportunities to try it out. Equipment will be provided to people signing up for that. In case you are interested in renting equipment and have not received information about how register for that, please contact the organizers.
