The Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) invites guests from industry and academia to the second collaborative scientific workshop on the topic “Operating the Cloud”. Our goal is to provide a forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience between industry and academia. Hence, HPI’s Future SOC Lab is the adequate environment to host this event which is also supported by BITKOM.

On the occasion of this workshop we seek submissions of research papers and practitioners’ reports. In addition to your papers and reports you may optionally provide conference posters. “Operating the Cloud” aims to be a platform for productive discussions of innovative ideas, visions, and upcoming technologies in the field of cloud operation and administration.


The program committee looks for submissions related to the field of cloud computing. Potential topics may be but are not limited to:

  • Security and cyber security in the cloud
  • Hybrid cloud solutions
  • Cloud-ilities: Scalability, availability, reliability, elasticity
  • Big data cloud services
  • Cloud optimization and performance management
  • Tenant placement


The program committee welcomes submissions of high quality research papers and practitioner’s reports written in English and conforming to the IEEE conference style. Submissions should not exceed six pages (including references, appendices, and figures) and must not be published yet. Optional conference posters may be written in English and have a portrait-oriented layout. Please upload your submission(s) in PDF format to the workshop’s electronic submission system (see Links).

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to present their work at the workshop. All accepted papers will be published as a technical report by the HPI after the event.
