CLOSER 2021 will be held in conjunction with ICEIS 2021, VEHITS 2021, SMARTGREENS 2021 and IMPROVE 2021.
Registration to CLOSER allows free access to the ICEIS, VEHITS, SMARTGREENS and IMPROVE conferences (as a non-speaker).

The 11th International Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science, CLOSER 2021, focuses on the highly important 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 and study various aspects of Cloud Computing.
