A special interest group on cloud computing will be established in the Sociedade Brasileira de Computação during the upcoming Workshop on Cloud Networks 2018, due to be held in 26 July.
Organised by the EUBrasilCloudForum, the WCN 2018 will be held at the Centro de Convenções de Natal (CCN) in conjunction with the Congress of the Sociedade Brasileira de Computação (CSBC 2018), immediately after the 5th Cloudscape Brazil. The main goal is the create a new Special Interest Group within the Sociedade Brasileira de Computação (SBC) focusing specifically on cloud computing.
The creation of a Cloud Computing Special Interest Group in the SBC is expected to enhance future research cooperation between Brazil and Europe, particularly due to projects such as ATMOSPHERE.
During the WCN 2018, the EUBrasilCloudFORUM team and the event delegates will work with the SBC on the special interest group's formation with membership comprised of Brazilian academic experts. It is expected that the group would structure the evolution of the cloud computing topic within the research community in Brazil for the upcoming years.
This special interest group will also be responsible for organising future technical-themed workshops to strengthen the collaboration between academia and industry.
