Transactions on Cloud Computing (TCC) Scope
IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing will publish peer-reviewed articles that provide innovative research ideas and applications results in all areas relating to cloud computing. Topics relating to novel theory, algorithms, performance analyses and applications of techniques relating to all areas of cloud computing will be considered for the transactions. The transactions will consider submissions specifically in the areas of cloud security, trade-offs between privacy and utility of cloud, cloud standards, the architecture of cloud computing, cloud development tools, cloud software, cloud backup and recovery, cloud interoperability, cloud applications management, cloud data analytics, cloud communications protocols, mobile cloud, liability issues for data loss on clouds, data integration on clouds, big data on clouds, cloud education, cloud skill sets, cloud energy consumption, cloud applications in commerce, education and industry. This title will also consider submissions on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), and Business Process as a Service (BPaaS).
NOTE: We seek submission of papers that present new, original and innovative ideas for the "first" time in TCC (Transactions on Cloud Computing). That means, submission of "extended versions" of already published works (e.g., conference/workshop papers) is not encouraged provided they contain significant number of "new and original" ideas/contributions along with more than 49% brand "new" material.
News and Announcements
Rajkumar Buyya, director of the Cloud Computing and Distributed Systems (CLOUDS) Laboratory at the University of Melbourne, has been named editor in chief of IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing, IEEE Computer Society's newest peer-reviewed journal.
Buyya, a professor of computer science and software engineering at University of Melbourne, is also founding CEO of a university spinoff called Manjrasoft Pty Ltd., which has developed innovative software technologies for cloud computing utilized by high-profile organizations such as China Southern Railways and Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO).
Well known in the cloud computing community, Buyya was 2009 recipient of the IEEE Medal for Excellence in Scalable Computing in recognition of his significant contribution to the scalable computing community. In particular, he was recognized for pioneering the economic paradigm for utility-oriented distributed computing platforms such as grids and clouds, and serving as chair of the Technical Committee on Scalable Computing. Among his many other awards are the IEEE Computer Society's Richard Merwin Award in 1999 and a Distinguished Service Award in 2009. Read more...
Call for Papers
Special Issue on "Utility and Cloud Computing Science and Technology"
Computing is rapidly moving towards a model where it is provided as services that are delivered in a manner similar to traditional utilities such as water, electricity, gas, and telephony. In such a model, users access services according to their requirements, without regard to where the services are hosted or how they are delivered. Several computing architectures have evolved to realize this utility computing vision, including Grid computing, Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Cloud computing, which has recently shifted into the center of attention in the ICT industry. Increasing numbers of IT vendors are promising to offer applications, storage and computation hosting services with conforming Service-Level Agreements (SLA) to ensure Quality of Services (QoS) and performance. Considering many of these services are hosted in traditional data centers, there is significant complexity involved in ensuring the scalability, availability, manageability and accessibility of applications, services and data, as the scale of the systems as well as the users grows. As a result, it is becoming important to investigate the use of cloud computing techniques and its interoperability with utility computing. This special issue focuses on principles, paradigms and applications of "Utility computing" and its practical realization especially in the context of Cloud Computing.

Special Issue on Autonomic Provisioning of Big Data Applications on Clouds
This special issue solicits papers that advance the fundamental understanding, technologies, and concepts related to autonomic provisioning of cloud resources for Big Data applications. The research advancement is in this area is important because such large, heterogeneous, and uncertain Big Data applications are becoming increasingly common, yet current cloud resource provisioning methods do not scale well and nor do they perform well under highly unpredictable conditions (data volume, data variety, data arrival rate, etc.). If these problems are resolved, then cloud-hosted Big Data applications will operate more efficiently, with reduced financial and environmental costs, reduced under-utilisation of resources, and better performance at times of unpredictable workload.
