CS3M Workshop

May 14, 2017

Cetara (Salerno), Italy

Cloud services represent a big portion of the present IT industry.  With the wide adoption of the cloud computing paradigm, more and more organizations and individual customers rely upon cloud services to carry out their business. However, reliance on services provided by third-parties, whose use is possibly shared among different customers, carries several concerns related to decreased control over personal data and sensitive information. As a matter of fact, cloud security is still considered one of the main factors inhibiting the diffusion of the Cloud Computing paradigm.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers, practitioners, developers, and policy makers interested in investigating innovative solutions targeting security modeling and  evaluation, security monitoring and security management in clouds.

Submission of original papers is welcome, along with the presentation of recent advances and preliminary results obtained in the context of  ongoing European projects.

The 1st CS3M workshop will be held in the beautiful Amalfi coast, at the Hotel Cetus - Cetara (Salerno), Italy, in conjunction with the 12th International Conference on Green, Pervasive and Cloud Computing (GPC 2017).

Accepted papers will be published by Springer LCNS Series, indexed in both Scopus and ISI Web of Science. All submitted papers must be formatted according to the Springer LNCS template, available at:, and must  not exceed 12 pages including bibliography and appendices.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Cloud security modeling and evaluation
Security metrics definition
Cloud security monitoring techniques and tools
Security-driven cloud service selection and brokering
Security-driven cloud application design and development
Secure cloud and multi-cloud applications
Security incident handling in cloud
Cloud security-oriented Service Level Agreements (Security SLAs)
Security SLA negotiation, enforcement and monitoring
Security remediation models and techniques
