The 2nd IEEE Latin America Conference on Cloud Computing and Communications (LatinCloud 2013)

Maceió-Alagoas, Brazil

DEC 09 – 10, 2013

The Cloud Computing and Communications paradigm has defined unprecedented business models, promoting on-demand computing resource allocation, elastic scaling, and elimination of up-front costs. Capitalizing on paradigms such as virtualization, utility computing, grid computing, and service oriented architectures, cloud computing and communications has already changed the way we compute and communicate. To cope with numerous technological challenges for the support of diverse services and application, the Second IEEE Latin America Conference on Cloud Computing and Communications (LatinCloud 2013) invites your submission.
