in conjunction with the IEEE 33rd International Symposium on Computer Architecture and High Performance Computing – SBAC-PAD.

October 26-29, 2021
Belo Horizonte – MG – Brazil


The Workshop on Cloud Computing (WCC) is a workshop on Cloud Computing and related areas, attracting researchers, engineers, and students from the fields of big data, systems architecture, service-oriented architecture, virtualization, security and privacy, high-performance computing, always with an emphasis on cloud computing platforms. The workshop is even closer to the HPC community and holds it in conjunction with the SBAC-PAD conference. WCC is a forum for both researchers and industry practitioners to exchange the fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice of cloud computing, identify emerging research topics, and define the future of cloud computing. The workshop organization started in 2019 at the CSBC conference. This year, the workshop will be held at Belo Horizonte, Brazil, in the state of Minas Gerais.
