Following the successful CF2015 conference in Pisa October 2015, the Cloud Forward 2016 Conference will be held in Madrid, at the centrally-located Circulo de Bellas Artes from 18 to 20 October 2016.
The conference will provide the scientific community a unique setting for presenting and discussing innovative technologies in the area of distributed computing as well as new technologies beyond CLOUDs, ranging from architectures over methodologies to new applications and services. The conference will focus both on research and development efforts in the domain of CLOUDs, and in future scenarios and technologies that exploit CLOUD computing as a utility, such as Internet of Things. Integral to the conference, the work of the clusters of experts and EC projects working on ‘beyond current CLOUD’ topics will be presented.
