9th International Symposium on Secure Virtual Infrastructures --

Cloud and Trusted Computing (C&TC 2019)

October 21-22, 2019 -- Rhodes, Greece, 









Current and future service-based software needs to remain focused towards
the development and deployment of large and complex intelligent and
networked information systems, required for internet-based and
intranet-based systems in organizations, as well to move to IoT integration
and big data analytics. Today, service-based software covers a very wide
range of application domains as well as technologies and research issues.
This has found realization through Cloud Computing, Big Data, and IoT. Vital
element in such networked, virtualized, and sensor-based information systems
are the notions of trust, security, privacy and risk management.

Cloud and Trusted Computing (C&TC 2019) is the 9th International Symposium
on Cloud Computing, Trusted Computing and Secure Virtual Infrastructures,
organized as part of the OnTheMove Federated Conferences & Workshops. C&TC
2019 will be held in Rhodes, Greece.

The conference solicits submissions from both academia and industry
presenting novel research in the context of Cloud Computing, Big Data, and
IoT, presenting theoretical and practical approaches to cloud, big data, and
IoT trust, security, privacy and risk management. The conference will
provide a special focus on the intersection between cloud paradigm, big data
analytics, and IoT integration, bringing together experts from the three
communities to discuss on the vital issues of trust, security, privacy and
risk management in Cloud Computing, shedding the light on novel issues and
requirements in big data and IoT domains. Potential contributions could
cover new approaches, methodologies, protocols, tools, or verification and
validation techniques. We also welcome review papers that analyze critically
the current status of trust, security, privacy and risk management in the
Cloud, Big Data, and IoT. Papers from practitioners who encounter trust,
security, privacy, and risk management problems, and seek understanding are
finally welcome.

Important Dates



Conference Paper Submission Deadline: July 25, 2019 *FIRM*

Acceptance Notification:  Aug 20, 2019

Camera Ready Due:  Aug 30, 2019

Author Registration Due:  Aug 30, 2019



Paper Submission




Regular paper submissions to Cloud and Trusted Computing 2019 (C&TC 2019)
must present original, highly innovative, prospective and forward-looking
research in one or more of the themes given above. Full papers must break
new ground, present new insight, deliver a significant research contribution
and provide validated support for its results and conclusions. Successful
submissions typically represent a major advance for the fields of cloud
computing, big data, and IoT referencing and relating the contribution to
existing research work, giving a comprehensive, detailed and understandable
explanation of a system, study, theory or methodology, and support the
findings with a compelling evaluation and/or validation. Each paper must be
submitted as a single PDF file in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science
format (no longer than 18 pages in length). Accepted regular papers will be
included in the conference main proceedings and presented in the paper
sessions. Submissions to C&TC 2019 must not be under review by any other
conference or publication at any time during the C&TC review cycle, and must
not be previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere.



Short papers (not longer than 8 pages in length) must report new results and
provide support for the results, as a novel and valuable contribution to the
field – just like full papers. Short papers are intended for succinct work
that is nonetheless in a mature state ready for inclusion in archival
proceedings. Short papers will be held to the same standard of scientific
quality as full papers, albeit for a shorter presentation, and must still
state how they fit with respect to related work, and provide a compelling
explanation and validation. Short papers must be submitted as single PDF
file in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science format. Accepted short
papers will be published in the conference main proceedings and will be
presented in the paper sessions of the conference.

The paper and notes submission site giving all the relevant submission
details is located at:
Failure to comply with the formatting instructions for submitted papers or
notes will lead to the outright rejection of the paper without review.
Failure to commit to presentation at the conference automatically excludes a
paper from the proceedings.
