Call for papers for NordiCloud 2014: 3rd Nordic Symposium on Cloud Computing and Internet Technologies, 12-13.11, 2014

NordiCloud at KTH, Stockholm, Sweden,

Like in other areas of the world, Nordic countries have established several initiatives and networks to promote cloud computing research and education. An increasing number of companies from Nordic and Baltic regions have also started offering different types of cloud services.

Given the increasing relevance of cloud computing, Nordic and Baltic countries will greatly benefit from a network of excellence which aims to strengthen the local and international collaboration for achieving much-needed advances in both technical and socio-technical aspects of cloud computing. This will provide an excellent opportunity to harness the growing cloud computing knowledge and expertise to build an eco-system of cloud computing competency in Nordic and Baltic regions.

The Nordic Symposium on Cloud Computing and Internet Technologies (NordiCloud) aims to provide a forum for enhancing collaboration between industrial and academic communities from Nordic and Baltic countries in the area of cloud computing and Internet technologies. The symposium also aims to provide a bridge between cloud computing researchers and practitioners from Nordic and Baltic countries as well as other areas of the world. The target audience of the symposium is researchers and practitioners working on cloud computing or related research areas who are interested in identifying, developing or building upon existing synergies.

The symposium will enable exchanging ideas and experiences as well as discussing emerging research trends which could be of importance in the context of future projects.
