7th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Big Data Computing, Applications and Technologies(BDCAT2020)
December 7-10, 2020 – Leicester, UK. Website: https://www.cs.le.ac.uk/events/BDCAT2020/
Cloud computing has firmly established itself as an indispensable utility for the digital age. Cloud services consumers expect and rely on sufficient computing power, the availability of data and media, and that these will be accessible across a range of devices.
The expectation now is that Cloud services providers are capable of maintaining streamed services that are always available. Also, social and technological challenges are met with the development and adoption of new technologies that provide a safer, more secure, and richer digital experience for users and customers. Therefore, it is essential that sound scientific principles underpinning cloud technology and its economic value to both service providers and consumers are expressed and understood.
UCC2020 is the premier IEEE/ACM conference for areas related to Cloud Computing as a Utility and provides an international forum for leading researchers and practitioners in this important and growing field.
UCC2020 will be hosted at the University of Leicester. The city of Leicester is a major city in the middle of country and is well connected to the rest of the world with road, rail and air networks.
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research manuscripts in all areas of Cloud and Utility Computing.
