First International Workshop on Cloud Native Applications Design and Experience — CNAX 2016
Co-located with the 10th IEEE Symposium on Service-Oriented Systems — SOSE 2016
Exeter College, University of Oxford, UK, 29 March - 2 April 2016
NOTE: Due to a low number of submissions, CNAX 2016 is cancelled. We will offer the workshop again in the foreseeable future due to increasing demand of results by industry.
As more and more applications and data are shifted to online hosting services,
predominantly at commercial cloud providers (e.g., Amazon, Microsoft, Google IBM, and Huawei),
the adaptation of applications to these environments becomes a major concern. Risks include temporary or permanent
unavailability of services, low platform resilience, sudden popularity spikes (i.e., the Slashdot effect),
overpayment due to not exploiting flexible hosting options as well as unauthorised access to the data. New application
architectures, so-called cloud native applications based on microservices, are therefore becoming more popular.
The fine-grained decoupling of application parts with partial offloading into the cloud
becomes a major concern for developers and development tooling providers.
The industrial relevance of this topic is on the rise, in particular with the recent formation of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
Edge topics such as user-controllable stealth computing across hybrid clouds are already on the horizon of researchers.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and engineers to propose and demonstrate novel methods of safely running applications, processing data and offering services on industry-leading cloud platforms.
Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research manuscripts, experience reports and experimental results that demonstrate current research in all areas of cloud applications. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- cloud-native application designs
- application decomposition into microservices
- service-oriented systems to enable and support cloud-native applications
- deployment with orchestrated containers
- high availability and reliability hosting schemes
- resilience and fault-tolerant storage and computation
- user control and feedback during the entire application lifecycle
- innovative use of PaaS and IaaS interfaces
- multi-service programming techniques
- multiplexed, dispersed and stealth computing approaches for high-quality applications
- combined compute and storage service systems for data-intensive applications
- advanced pro-active reliability concepts, monitoring and anomaly detection
- self-organisation and self-management for cloud services and applications
- application and data offloading
- Paper submission: January 16, 2016
- Notification of acceptance: January 31, 2016
- Camera-ready submission: February 8, 2016
- Author and early registration: February 1, 2016
Workshop papers are a maximum of 6 pages in length (in IEEE format). Submissions should be structured as technical papers in the form of PDF files. They must represent original unpublished content which is not currently under review for any other conference, workshop or journal.
All papers will be peer reviewed by at least three programme committee members. The evaluation will be based on originality, relevance of the problem to the workshop topics, technical strength, quality of results, and clarity of the presentation.
The publication of the workshop proceeding with all accepted papers will be by the IEEE and will appear in the same volume as the main conference IEEE SOSE 2016. At least one author of each accepted submission must attend the workshop and all workshop participants must pay the IEEE SOSE 2016 conference registration fee.
