CLOSER 2013 will be held in conjunction with WEBIST 2013, SMARTGREENS 2013 and CSEDU 2013.
Registration to CLOSER allows free access to the WEBIST, SMARTGREENS and CSEDU conferences (as a non-speaker).

The 3rd International Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science, CLOSER 2013, focuses on the emerging area of Cloud Computing, inspired by some latest advances that concern the infrastructure, operations, and available services through the global network. Further, the conference considers as essential the link to Services Science, acknowledging the service-orientation in most current IT-driven collaborations. The conference is nevertheless not about the union of these two (already broad) fields, but about Cloud Computing where we are also interested in how Services Science can provide theory, methods and techniques to design, analyze, manage, market etc. Cloud Computing.
