Brief Bio
Muthu Ramachandran is a Principal Lecturer at Leeds Beckett University. He has extensive research coupled with teaching background and experiences on software and systems engineering methods and lifecycle and is an expert in SOA, Cloud, and security.


Service oriented software engineering and cloud software engineering have emerged to address software as a set of services which deal with user needs. At the same time, we have seen a large number of downfalls due to software failures. This was in part due to the lack of adopting well designed software engineering practices. Now, there is a need to revise these practices given the emergence of service and cloud computing, which will revolutionize the next generation of software engineering. This conference offers a venue for presenting new approaches, processes, techniques, technologies and applications based on the paradigm of Cloud Software Engineering.
