The Cloud Forward 2015 Conference brought together experts from industry and academia to consider 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 reviewed experiences and discussed 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 provided the scientific community a dedicated forum for discussing innovative architectures and services in the area of distributed computing (through the Distributed and CLOUD computing track), as well as new technologies beyond CLOUDs, requirements and future goals (through the COMPLETE computing track). The event focused 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.
