"Cloud computing is Web-based processing, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices on demand over the Internet". Details are abstracted from the users that are supported by the technology infrastructure "in the cloud".
Cloud computing describes a novel consumption and delivery model for IT services enabling dynamic and scalable environments for the sharing of virtual resources.
The term "cloud" is used as a metaphor for the Internet, based on the cloud drawing used in the past to represent the telephone network, and later to depict the Internet in computer network diagrams as an abstraction of the underlying infrastructure it represents.
Most cloud computing infrastructures consist of services delivered through common centers and built on servers. Clouds often appear as single points of access for consumers' computing needs. The last generation of Cloud Technology allows users to feel remote resource and software remotely running as part of its own computation resource.
Cloud vision enables several innovative business scenarios that assume customers do not own the physical infrastructure. Cloud Computing has become a scalable services consumption and delivery platform in the field of Services Computing.

The main goal of the Workshop is providing a forum to promote the exchange of the latest advances in Cloud Computing Technology and Applications from both the research and development perspectives, as well as it is an opportunity for the interchanging of ideas and proposals among individuals from both academia and enterprises.
