The purpose of workshops is to provide a more interactive and focused platform for presenting and discussing new and emerging ideas. The format of paper presentations may include oral presentations, poster presentations, keynote lectures and panels. Depending on the number of presentations, workshops can be scheduled for 1 day or 2 days. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on CD-ROM support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.
TEEC 2017, Workshop on Tools for an Energy Efficient Cloud (Cancelled)
BPM@Cloud 2017, Business Process Management in the Cloud (Cancelled)
Tools for an Energy Efficient Cloud -
* CANCELLED *
The workshop aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, software developers, and others interested in the latest advances of energy efficient clouds. Special focus will be on novel methods and tools to support software developers aiming to optimise energy efficiency and minimise the carbon footprint resulting from designing, developing, deploying and running software at the different layers of the Cloud computing stack. We call on to researchers and professionals to present their latest work on addressing such related challenges and to share their experiences and best practices in the deployment of such systems. We particularly welcome papers on relevant software engineering approaches and practical guidance on enterprise-wide software deployment in the cloud environment, together with real-world case studies.
Business Process Management in the Cloud -
* CANCELLED *
To reduce costs as well as allow a more flexible provisioning of their business processes (BPs) and services, organisations are continuously thinking to move to the cloud. However, most of them do not have the appropriate expertise towards performing this move. As such, there is a need of platforms which are able to realise respective methods, techniques and algorithms that provide the appropriate cloud-based support level to these organisations. This support level should enable organisations to check which parts of their business processes should be moved to the cloud as well as cater for bridging the gap between the business and IT level. Moreover, it should assist in the allocation, publishing, execution, monitoring, evaluation and adaptive provisioning of these business processes, thus catering for their appropriate management based on the four main lifecycle activities of BP design, allocation, execution and evaluation. By moving and offering business processes in the cloud, the notion of Business Process as a Service (BPaaS) is realized which is projected to become quite profitable for the organisations participating in its value chain which can play the role of Brokers, BPaaS management platform operators, or software developers. Thus, BPaaS not only caters for migrating existing BPs in the cloud but can also become a novel exploitation product in the cloud stack that will further boost the adoption of cloud computing.
