The Call for Industry Track Papers is now closed for UCC 2013.

In addition to scientific papers (see Call for Papers), UCC welcomes practically motivated research results from companies and government IT organisations, industrial experience reports and industrial-strength tutorials on hot topics of Utility and Cloud Computing. Submissions to the Industry Track are expected to be short papers of two pages which will be subject to review. The selection will be based on relevance, technical quality and appearance. Each submission should describe the problem, the approach used, the current state of the project, an evaluation of the benefits or lessons learnt, and future developments.

Accepted papers will be presented as short talk in an Industry Track session as part of the regular conference programme. Industry Track papers will not be published as part of the proceedings, but distributed on-site in a separate booklet. Tutorials will provide participants with valuable hands-on experience in software and services related to Utility and Cloud Computing and are open to both industrial and academic practicioners.

The range of topics for Industry Papers and Industrial Reports includes, but is not limited to:
