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 HPI Cloud Symposium is conducted in the building C ("Hörsaalgebäude") of the Hasso-Plattner-Institut on Tuesday, October 28, 2014. You can find directions here: http://hpi.de/en/the-hpi/organization/directions.html
