Cloud computing, as well as cloud-inspired business models, enables on-demand access to a shared pool of resources, namely computing, storage, networks, services, and applications. With the advent of cloud-based systems, cloud operators have been aiming at reliable, secured, privacy-preserving and cost-efficient cloud design and management. The heterogeneity of cloud applications leads to the challenge of holistic design of a robust cloud system which can oversee and handle the diverse needs of numerous types of applications. On the other hand, the new computation technologies, such as big data analytics, machine learning, and blockchain, have great influence on the cloud and network. These challenges enforce cooperation of various players in the cloud system, each of which focuses on a different segment such as computing, network, applications, and systems.

The Fourth International Workshop on Intelligent Cloud Computing and Networking (ICCN-2022) is the evolution of the previous 7 editions CCSNA (Cloud Computing Systems, Networks, and Applications) and further 3 editions ICCN workshop, starting in IEEE Globecom 2013. It aims at the crossroads between scientists, researchers, practitioners and students from diverse domains in cloud computing research. The Workshop aims at attracting contributions of system and network design that can support existing and future applications and services. Researchers are encouraged to submit original research contributions in all major areas, which include, but not limited to:

  • Cloud computing system and network design
  • Cloud network protocol design and management
  • Optimization for cloud computing, networking, and applications
  • Green cloud system design
  • Cloud storage design and networking
  • Cloud system and storage security
  • Cloud network virtualization techniques
  • Modeling for cloud system, network and storage
  • Performance analysis for cloud system, network and storage
  • Big data storage and networking in the Clouds
  • Intra-cloud computing and networking
  • Mobile cloud system design
