In conjunction with the IEEE SOCA 2015 Conference.


The cloud computing paradigm has reached a point of maturity reflected by both its penetration to the software market and the amount of available and ongoing research efforts. Its fundamental characteristics like rapid elasticity, resource pooling on different levels and charging in a utility-based model open new venues of research in engineering cloud applications and services. However, the impact of these characteristics on migrated or to-be migrated applications to the cloud, or on specifically designed for the cloud applications, remains mainly an open issue.

The availability of different offerings in the service delivery model spectrum by the public cloud service providers, and the proliferation of private cloud solutions offer readily-available platforms for analysis, introduction of new concepts, and experimentation. Innovative engineering theories, methods and techniques are required for this purpose. The EnCASE workshop provides a venue for the presentation and discussion of such initiatives.


The workshop addresses, but is not limited to the following topics:

  • Engineering Cloud-native Applications
  • Cloud-enabling Existing Applications and Solutions
  • Approaches for Supporting Application, Data and Service Migration to the Cloud
  • Legacy Application Modernization and Cloudification
  • Migration and Interoperability between Cloud Providers and Deployment Models
  • Performance Engineering for Cloud Applications and Services
  • Cloud Data Management
  • Cloud Security, Privacy, and Compliance
  • Cloud Workload Profiling and Deployment Control
  • QoS guarantees for Cloud Services
  • Economic and Business Models for Cloud Applications and Services
  • Cloud DevOps
  • Deployment and Provisioning of Cloud Applications and Services
  • Cloud Application Engineering in the Scientific and Enterprise Domain
  • Cloud-based Big Data Applications and Services


The submission and review process will take place through the Easychair system. All submissions should be made in IEEE proceedings two-columns PDF format and comply with the IEEE Computer Society Conference Proceedings Format Guidelines. A maximum of 5 pages is allowed for paper submissions.

The proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press as part of the main conference proceedings, and be made accessible through IEEE Xplore and the IEEE Computer Society Digital Library.
