The 2nd IEEE International Conference on JointCloud Computing (JCC 2021)

August 23-26, 2021, Online




Cloud Computing technologies have become the backbone of modern IT 
infrastructures. Businesses usually adopt a multi-hybrid cloud strategy to 
achieve optimized portfolios of cloud services provided by different vendors 
and avoid single vendor lock-in. Meanwhile, this strategy brings technical 
challenges and complexities to build, manage and operate multi-hybrid clouds. 
JointCloud is used to refer to but not limited to Hybrid-Cloud, Inter-Cloud, 
Multi-Cloud, Cloud Federation, Cross-Cloud and Cloud Service Broker (CSB) etc. 
The IEEE JCC 2021 aims to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners 
to exchange innovative ideas, latest research results, and practical 
experiences and lessons learned around JointCloud. The conference will be 
co-located with IEEE SOSE 2021, IEEE BigDataService 2021, IEEE MobileCloud 
2021, IEEE DAPPCON 2021 and IEEE AI TEST 2021. IEEE JCC 2021 will consist of 
main tracks and special tracks. All accepted papers will be included in the 
conference proceedings which will be published by the IEEE CPS. Selected 
papers will be invited for extension and published in selected journals

All submissions should follow the IEEE Double Column Format. Each submission 
of full papers can have up to 8 pages, while the submission of short, demo or 
industry papers is limited up to 4 pages. Short, demo or industry papers are 
the works that make significant contributions, but are still in progress, or 
works of smaller scale that can be reported briefly. If the submission is 
accepted for publication, up to 2 over-length pages may be purchased for the 
final camera-ready version. Submissions should NOT be blinded for review. The 
submission Web page for IEEE JCC 2021 is 


All accepted and presented papers will be published by IEEE and will be 
indexed by EI Compendex. Selected papers will be invited for extension and 
published in journals (SCI-Index).
