Application of Cloud Computing in the public sector can lead to significant energy and costs savings. The main reason for energy inefficiency of local solutions is underutilization. Cloud Computing by achieving a higher utilization rate and the pay-as-you-go model is a promising approach for reduction of both energy consumption and costs. The public sector is especially important because on the one hand it represents a big part of the economy and on the other hand it serves as a role model for other sectors. The special track on Cloud Computing for the Public Sector (CCPS 2011) at ICT-GLOW is intended to gather researchers and practitioners with an interest in this area to present and discuss latest developments. CCPS 2011 invites submissions from researchers and developers as well as application scientists in the areas related to Cloud technology for the public sector.

Topics of interest include but not limited to:

  • Deployment models
  • Political, legal and organizational aspects of Cloud Computing for the public sector
  • Risk management
  • Economics of Cloud Computing
  • Energy saving analysis of Cloud Computing for the public sector
  • Cost, risks and challenges of operation and migration
  • Contracting
  • Data protection
  • Data privacy
  • Data security
  • The role of government
