First Call for Papers for the "International Workshop on Cross-Stratum Optimization for Cloud Computing and Distributed Networked Applications"

Co-located with the 10th IEEE International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Processing with Applications, ISPA 2012
July 10-13, 2012
Leganes, Madrid, Spain

Aims and Scope
The current lack of interaction between networked applications and the underlying network during service provisioning cause inefficiencies on the use of network resources which can negatively impact the quality expectations of the final consumers of those applications.

Typical networked applications are offered through Information Technology (IT) resources (as computing and storage facilities) residing in data centers. Data centers then provide the physical and virtual infrastructure in which applications and services are provided. Since the data centers are usually distributed geographically around a network, many decisions made in the control and management of application services, such as where to instantiate another service instance, or which data center out of several is assigned to a new customer, can have a significant impact on the state of the network. In the same way, the capabilities and state of the network can have a major impact on application performance.

Cross-stratum optimization (CSO) is referred to the combined optimization of both the application and the network components that aims to provide joint resource optimization, responsiveness to quickly changing demands from/to application to/from network, enhanced service resilience using cooperative recovery techniques, and quality of experience assurance by a better use of existing network and application resources, among others.

The CSO involves the overall optimization of application layer and network resources by envisioning next generation architecture for interactions and exchanges between the two layers to improve service continuity, performance guarantees, scalability and manageability. The goal of this workshop is to promote the research interest on the optimal integration of application and network resources.

This workshop aims to explore the challenges and issues faced by cloud computing and data center integration with networks. Among the key areas of investigation to be discussed in the workshop are as follows:

.- Application/network integration architectures and subsystems
.- Use cases, business models and requirements for application/network integration
.- Control/management issues for application/network integration
.- Network virtualization and its impact for application/network integration
.- Network-aware application/cloud computing
.- Flexible and scalable networking solutions for distributed Data Centers
.- Joint application/network reliability and security
.- Experimental/trial experience
.- Scalability
.- Joint/shared performance and fault monitoring
.- Multi-domain issues
