2º WCN

Workshop on Cloud Networks


The workshop will bring together researchers, engineers, and practitioners from academia, industry and government to discuss and advance the state-of-the-art research, advances and practice in the emerging area of cloud-based networks and applications. In this second edition, the WCN 2017 is sponsored by the EUBRASILCloudForum Project, with support of CTIC/RNP and the European Commission and the BiGSea and SecureCloud projects.

This workshop will present unpublished research work related to the latest challenges, technologies, solutions and techniques related to networking within the cloud and to the efficient and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. Effective solutions related to the placement, sizing, bursting, and migration of compute, storage, and data resources within the cloud network(s) become critical to the deployment of elastic and agile applications.
