Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital 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 DBLP, Web of Science / Conference Proceedings Citation Index, EI and SCOPUS.

Special Session on Experiences with OCCI - OCCI 2016


Augusto Ciuffoletti
Computer Science, Università di Pisa

OCCI stands for Open Cloud Computing Interface. It is a standard proposal of the Open Grid forum that aims at fostering interoperability between different cloud infrastructures and providers. This Special Session gathers experiences about the utilization of OCCI, specifically addressing adoption stories and applications, as well as new applications and extensions of the OCCI.

Special Session on Tools for an Energy Efficient Cloud - TEEC 2016


Karim Djemame
University of Leeds
United Kingdom

The special session 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.
