As a sequence of the technical state of the art discussion during the WCN, the Cloudscape Brazil 2017 will be a forum for discussing cloud-friendly policy measures, ensuring safe and fair contracts and a level playing field for the supply side, as well as more informed consumer choices are essential to build trust in the cloud, with the aim of introducing a dialogue demonstrating how you can make the most out of adopting cloud computing. Cloudscape Brazil takes a practical look at some of the major challenges & requirements to the adoption of cloud computing, exploring pathways for closer collaboration between Brazil and Europe on issues of common interest.
EUBrasilCloudFORUM organizes the 4th edition of Cloudscape Brazil with the ambition to shape cloud developments in both Brazil and Europe by bringing insights into current market trends, challenges slowing down mainstream adoption of cloud services and best practices to address them. Further topics include: policy issues around taxation, bandwidth, energy pricing and data protection, which are slowing down cloud adoption in Brazil.
We wish to create a consolidated and continuous platform with Cloudscape Brazil that both promotes EU & BR excellence in the advances made in the area of cloud computing and its links with big data & IoT using cloud as an enabler, from a IaaS, SaaS & PaaS perspective, maturity in the delivery of common templates for Cloud SLAs, delivering novel tools to support EU & BR SMEs & Start-ups to use Cloud computing in a more efficient way, being given informed know-how around data protection, security & legal issues.
A special Interest Group on Cloud Computing
During these two days EUBrasilCloudFORUM team and the event delegates will interact with the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) to start a SIG (Special Interest Group) in Cloud Computing, formed by Brazilian academic experts to structure the evolution of this area within the research community in Brazil for the upcoming years. This SIG will also be responsible for organising future technical themed workshops to strengthen the collaboration between academia and industry.
A selection of relevant topics for ICT cooperation between Europe and Brazil
A call for papers has been launched at WCN on the latest challenges, technologies, solutions and techniques related to networking within the cloud and to the efficient and effective cloud deployment and hosting of the various emerging applications and services. In parallel, Cloudscape Brazil will collect a series of Position Papers bringing insights into current market trends, challenges slowing down mainstream adoption of cloud services and best practices to address them, including policy issues around taxation, bandwidth, energy pricing and data protection.
A White Paper for the EU-Brazil Policy Dialogue meeting on ICT in November, Brasília
EUBrasilCloudFORUM has the mandate from the EC and MCTI to support the EU-BR collaborative projects in the collection and promotion of their results and activities. The results will be used to draft a research Roadmap on cloud computing, identifying collaboration needs and opportunities between Europe and Brazil for the European Commission and to MCTI, thus contributing to the definition of future cooperation priorities between the two regions. The outcomes of the meeting will be submitted to the European Commission and to the MCTIC and used during the EU-Brazil Policy Dialogue.
Both WCN and Cloudscape Brazil are organized by EUBrasilCloudFORUM in the frame of the annual Conference of the Brazilian Computing Society (CSBC) 2017. The two events are jointly organized and the agendas complement with attention to research, industry and policy topics around cloud computing. Participation at both events is highly welcome. Be part of our working agenda and growing EU & BR cloud computing community, get involved.
EUBrasilCloudFORUM is the consolidated result of the efforts pooled together by representatives of the EU-Brazil Working Group set up at the EUBrazil workshop held in July 2014, in Brasilia. The project is going to contribute in a strategic way to the definition, scoping and creation of an EU-Brazil Open Science Cloud environment.
EUBrasilCloudFORUM is going to contribute in a strategic way to the definition, scoping and eventual creation of an EU-Brazil Open Science Cloud. The project will facilitate the establishment of an organisational cooperation model that enables the EU and Brazil to formulate and develop a common strategy and approach for Research & Innovation in Cloud Computing in line with the priorities of each region.

Cloud computing is a key enabler for emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things and Data Science. It is continuously driving the vast spectrum of both current and emerging applications, products, and services. Mobile phones and tablets are now used more than desktops to access Internet as business and habits change. SMEs are adapting to this new reality. Cloud services are providing amazing opportunities for and giving the opportunity for businesses to be agile allowing them to adapt business plans to changing circumstances. This session showcases secure and interoperable services which can improve the lives of SMEs. From services to understand cloud contracts and actually write SLAs to solutions to helping bring together developers and users in a collaborative environment.
