Proceedings of HotTopiCS 2013 online

The proceedings of the International Workshop on Hot Topics in Cloud Services, co-organized by our group, are available online.

The 2013 International Workshop on HotTopiCS in Cloud Services (HotTopiCS 2013), co-organized by Samuel Kounev (KIT), Steffen Zschaler (Kings College London), and Kai Sachs (SAP) within the framework of the RELATE ITN, took place in Prague between 20-21 April 2013. More than 50 international researchers from academia and industry attended the two day event exchanging ideas and experiences on novel research challenges and current problems from practice in the area of cloud computing.

The program included five technical sessions on various topics ranging from cloud resource management to cloud performance evaluation, two invited talks, including a presentation on the RELATE project, and an open discussion on novel challenges and emerging research directions in cloud computing.

The proceedings of the workshop are available from the ACM Digital Library as well as from the SPEC Research Group web site as part of the ICPE 2013 proceedings. The slides from the individual presentations can be downloaded from the ICPE 2013 web site or the RELATE ITN web site.

The workshop included a presentation of the RELATE research training network on engineering and provisioning of service-based cloud applications.
