Dear Colleagues,
Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP.



          The Fourth International Workshop on Dependability of Clouds, 
             Data Centers and Virtual Machine Technology (DCDV 2014)
                       http://www.cse.ust.hk/DCDV2014/

                            in conjunction with

             The 44th Annual IEEE/IFIP International Conference on 
                  Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN 2013)
                       June 23, 2014 Atlanta, GA, USA

                                CALL FOR PAPERS

PURPOSE AND SCOPE

Cloud computing can be characterized as the culmination of the integration of computing and data infrastructures to 
provide a scalable, agile and cost-effective approach to support the ever-growing critical IT needs of both enterprises 
and the general public. Massive data centers providing storage and processing power with fast network connectivity 
form the core of the support infrastructure for the cloud. It is thus imperative that we get the cloud and consequently 
the underlying data center infrastructure right so that both the deployment, operation and maintenance of the 
infrastructure is efficient, cost-effective and meets the performance, dependability and security requirements.

The Fourth International Workshop on Dependability of Clouds, Data Centers and Virtual Machine Technology (DCDV 2014) 
will bring together academics and industry practitioners in order to share experiences, discuss existing state-of-the-art and 
set directions for future research and evolution for this dynamic and rapidly evolving field.

Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

* Architecture and design of clouds and data centers for dependability
* Faults, failure diagnosis, and recovery issues in clouds and data centers
* Dependability challenges and solutions for cloud users and cloud providers
* Dependability and security of virtual machine and multicore technology
* Dependability metrics, analysis, and evaluation for clouds and data centers
* Assured services, protocols and standards for clouds
* Dependability benchmarking and measurements in clouds and data centers
* Security and privacy issues in clouds and data centers
* Sustainability issues and energy management in clouds/data centers
* Trust, policy management and regulatory compliance issues
