The 8th Cloud Control Workshop is held in Lövånger Kyrkstad, outside Umeå, on February 1-3, 2016. This workshop goes back to basic and is restricted to the members of the Cloud Control project at Umeå and Lund University.

vinter_400As for all the previous editions, the 8th Cloud Control 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 format will be to mainly focus on multi-disciplinary 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. 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.
