Welcome to C4BB4C 2012

The International Workshop on Clouds for Business and Business for Clouds (C4BB4C) will be held at the 10th IEEE International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Processing with Applications (ISPA2012).

Online coverage


IEEE TCSC Cloud Computing has acquired enough maturity to expand its field of application to business. Yet there are not only institutions which use this paradigm in their production line but there are also those which are offering services through the Cloud.

This workshop intends to put together efforts done from service producers and consumers in order to make Cloud Computing provide an added value to the economy of any kind of institution. Technologies, policies and heuristics will be shared, not discarding those coming from other areas that would benefit Cloud Computing.

The Workshop intends also to focus on how services are delivered through the cloud as a popular strategic technology choice for businesses that provides a flexible, ubiquitous and consistent platform accessible from anywhere at any time.

The interface of software services and cloud computing provides a rich area for research and experience to give a unique insight into how cloud-based service can be achieved in practice. We encourage submissions of research papers on work in the area of Cloud Computing, Service Engineering, and especially welcome papers describing developments in cloud-enabled business process management and all related areas, such as deployment techniques, business models for cloud-based enterprises and experience reports from practitioners.
