About CF2016

The CF2016 Conference brings together experts from industry and academia to present and discuss the future of and beyond Cloud Computing.  Based on the HOLA Cloud project and platform – which documents European research, development and innovation in CLOUDs – the conference reviews experiences and discusses future directions to overcome problems and provide new opportunities for the utilisation of leading edge CLOUD Computing by industry and academia and for ICT developers providing innovative solutions.

The conference will provide the scientific community a dedicated 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. In Cloud Forward 2016 experts from all over the world will come together to discuss together with the audience the requirements and future goals of cloud related technology development.

Integral to the conference, the work of the clusters of experts and EC projects working on ‘beyond current CLOUD’ topics will be presented.

The event will also host a dedicated SME event to investigate innovative technologies, promote business ideas and foster current game-changers arising on the market.

CF2016 is organised under the auspices of AMETIC, CDTI, Chamber of Commerce, EGI, Madrid+d, UNED and IEEE Cloud Computing Magazine. Conference proceedings will be published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science.
