Hi hama-dev,
I'm forwarding this to the list as we may be interested in proposing
something ;-)

(apologies for the cross posting)

*** PLEASE NOTE - the deadline for submitting papers has been extended by 1
week to 1/28/2011! ***

Please consider submitting a paper to the ICSE 2011 Software Engineering for
Cloud Computing (SECLOUD) Workshop to be held Sunday, May 22, 2011, at the
Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort in Waikiki, Honolulu, HI.

This workshop focuses on identifying the grand challenges that lay before us
in the realm of software engineering for cloud computing. We will debate
existing notions of SE for the construction of cloud services and for their
deployment. We will discuss and evangelize individual successes in the field
and attempt to identify the key ingredients that enabled that success.
Participants in this workshop will take a role in helping to formulate a
long-term, concrete software engineering agenda for cloud and will have an
opportunity to share in and contribute to the existing “tribal knowledge”
for cloud-related software engineering.

We invite high quality submissions of technical and research papers, as well
as research demonstrations describing original and unpublished results of
research relevant to software engineering for cloud. Authors are asked to
reserve a section in their submitted papers for identifying their suggested
near-term and long-term challenge areas for the field.

The workshop seeks to focus discussion around the ways that the disruptive
effect of cloud computing is engendering a new set of principles and
approaches to software engineering. Specific topics of interest include, but
are not limited to:

Topic Areas of Interest:

- Agile Software development on the cloud
- Architecting Applications using the cloud
- Benchmarking and Performance Metrics in the cloud
- Cloud Application Reliability
- Distributed collaboration on the cloud
- Interoperability and Portability challenges in multi-cloud environments
- Open Source Cloud Environments: Hadoop, Eucalyptus and other programming
paradigms, languages and environments for the Cloud
- Requirements Elicitation effectiveness when using cloud service
- Secure Software Engineering in the Cloud
- Software Engineering Practices using popular cloud vendor services
- Software Engineering tools
- Software Project Estimations, Testing,Verification and Validation over
cloud service abstractions

Submission Guidelines:

Submissions may take one of two acceptable forms. Research paper
contributions may be submitted with a maximum length of 7 pages, and must
conform to ICSE 2011 paper formatting guidelines [1]. Research demonstration
submissions are limited to 1 page in the conference proceedings and will be
given during he two 15-minute breakout sessions.

All submissions must be in English and in PDF format [2]. An abstract must
accompany each research paper contribution. The workshop website [3] will be
updated to include a link to the CyberChairPRO online submission system once
it has been set up. All accepted papers will be published and disseminated
on the workshop website after the conclusion of the workshop.

Review and Evaluation Criteria:

Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program
Committee and will be assessed on the basis of originality, importance and
relevance of contribution to SE for cloud, soundness, quality of
presentation, and an appropriate comparison to related work. The program
committee as a whole will make final decisions about acceptance.
