Cloud Service Brokerage - Methods and Mechanisms (CSB 2013)
Workshop co-located with the

The workshop looks to a future in which a multi-cloud ecosystem exists, within which many cloud providers and consumers interact to discover, negotiate and use software services.  Supporting this ecosystem are cloud brokers, whose role is to bring together providers and consumers, by offering service portals with added value for all parties. 

A central feature of the broker’s role will be to assure quality control (both functional and non-functional), service continuity (failure prevention and recovery; service substitution) and market competition (arbitrage; service optimization; service customization).

In this workshop we invite contributions which tackle theoretical, technical and application aspects of Cloud Service Brokerage.
