As a consequence of the spread of the covid-19 virus, we have disappointingly had to take the decision to cancel the Cloud Control Workshop in June 2020. The preliminary plan is to run the next edition on the same location and in the same format as described below, but one year later, more exactly on June 22-24, 2021. People registered for the June 2020 edition will get a full refund of their registration fee (no action required).
The information below is still addressing the now cancelled 2020 year version.
The 17th Cloud Control Workshop, to be held at Sånga-Säby, Sweden, is a high-profile workshop targeting academic and industrial technology researchers and leaders from all around the world. Participation is by invitation only.
As always, the aim of the 17th Cloud Control Workshop is to foster multidisciplinary research in cloud management, leveraging expertise in areas such as autonomic computing, control theory, distributed systems, machine learning, energy management, 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 resource management for any type of resources important for the cloud, from single servers to mega-scale datacenters, including, e.g., mobile edge clouds, fog infrastructure, and disaggregated and software-definied infrastructures on any scale, from rack-scale to datacenter-scale. The workshop targets leading industrial and academic researchers from any scientific discipline with potential to contribute to this multidisciplinary topic.
The ambition is to create the type of event where people come, not to publish and extend their CV:s, but to discuss and learn, and most importantly, to establish or strengthen connections to people with varying backgrounds, but all highly relevant to solving our problems in cloud control. To facilitate this we, in addition to forming a very discussion-oriented program, host the event on a small, relaxing, and inspiring location, with many opportunities to interact during the three days of the workshop.
The workshop will mainly focus on multi-disciplinary research discussions in parallel sessions but also include some keynotes, some short scientific presentations on planned, ongoing, or completed research, and a combined poster session and welcome reception. The 17th edition will strive for a strong focus on management topics using the techniques listed above, rather than on cloud in general.
Participation is by invitation only. If interested to participate, please send an email to Erik Elmroth (firstname.lastname@example.org). Note, however, that the number of participants is limited.
Some of early confirmed participants include the following:
