We are pleased to announce that the: 1st International Workshop on Cloud Service Brokerage – Methods and Mechanismsbacked by the Broker@Cloud consortium. has been accepted for the:

11th International Conference on Service Oriented Computing (ICSOC 2013), which will take place in Berlin, Germany, December 2-5, 2013.

  • Dr Anthony J H Simons, Department of Computer Science, University of Sheffield, United Kingdom
  • Dr Iraklis Paraskakis, South-East European Research Centre, Thessaloniki, Greece

This workshop looks to a future in which a multi-cloud ecosystem exists, within which many cloud providers and consumers interact to discover, negotiate and use software services.  Supporting this ecosystem are cloud brokers, whose role is to bring together providers and consumers, by offering service portals with added value for all parties.  A central feature of the broker’s role will be to assure quality control (both functional and non-functional), service continuity (failure prevention and recovery; service substitution) and market competition (arbitrage; service optimization; service customization).

Details on the submission of papers via EasyChair and all pertinent deadlines are available on the workshop website. The main important dates to remember are:
