Developing for the Cloud (DFTC)
Technical Track

One of the main challenges in Software Engineering is to cope with the transition from an industry based on software as a product to software as a service. The field of Software Engineering should provide the necessary methods and tools to develop and deploy new cost-efficient and scalable digital services that can reach thousands or millions of users over the globe.

Within recent years, Cloud Computing has become the preferred platform to deliver scalable digital services for new businesses as well as a cost-efficient platform for scientific computing applications.  A key element in Cloud Computing is resource virtualization and sharing, which can occur at various level including infrastructure (IaaS), computing platform (PaaS), as well as middleware and application software (SaaS). These three virtualization and abstraction levels offer new opportunities to utilize computing resources more efficiently. However, there is still a need for advanced time and cost efficient Software Engineering approaches, methods and tools to develop scalable and reliable services to be deployed in the Cloud.

The goal of the Developing for the Cloud (DFTC) Track SEAA’15 is to bring together researchers and practitioners to present and discuss the latest advances in Software Engineering approaches, methods and tools to develop Cloud Software: digital services and applications for the Cloud and in the Cloud.

We encourage submissions of a theoretical nature as well as experience reports, from academia and especially from industry.  Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas:

  •  Infrastructure, platform or software as a service and Software Engineering
  • Service oriented architecture and Cloud Computing
  • Programming models for Cloud software
  • Development environments for the Cloud or in the Cloud
  • Scalability approaches, performance modeling and performance testing of Cloud software
  • User experience in the Cloud, feature experimentation in cloud software, minimum-viable products
  • Security and privacy for Cloud software
  • Big data analytics in the Cloud
  • Business and economic models for Cloud Computing and Cloud Software
