The Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) invites to the sixth edition of the yearly scientific symposium on the topic “Operating the Cloud”. The Future SOC Lab, a cooperation of HPI and the industry partners Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Dell EMC, Fujitsu, and SAP, provides researchers with free of charge access to a complete infrastructure of powerful hardware and software. Serving as the foundation for state-of-the-art approaches in Data Science applications, cloud computing remains as one of the main research areas at the Future SOC Lab.
It aims at connecting industry and academia by inviting speakers and calling for paper presentations. On this occasion, we seek for research papers and practitioners' reports in the fields of operating, administrating, and utilizing cloud systems. Please submit your contribution to the electronic submission system we use. Accepted submissions will be presented at the symposium in Potsdam. "Operating the Cloud" aims to present a versatile compilation of talks which allow a deep exchange of experience and knowledge.
