Cloud computing, networking, and their related service management including grid computing (as appropriate) have recently emerged out of marketing 
hype to viable computing/networking tools for reducing infrastructure deployment and service management costs without sacrificing the quality of 
service/experience (QoS/E).

Although the virtualization of computing and networking resources, and their self-organizing interconnection is at the heart of it, the 
methods/mechanisms/tools that are used to expose (visualization) resources and their utilization (the application programming interfaces of APIs) for 
developing anything (*) as a service (*aaS) are still ad-hoc and/or proprietary in nature. Security, privacy, and multi-tenancy support requirements 
add another dimension to the already complex set of Cloud —computing and networking— management problems.

This JNSM SI on CCNS management will include invited and referee-recommended papers on the following topics:

- Cloud Applications and Services
--> Any computing, data-storing, and networking as a service
- API for enabling Cloud-based Services
--> Public, Private, and Hybrid (toolkit approach) APIs
- Virtualization (of any and all resources) and Hosting
--> Virtualization of Clients/Desktop, Applications, Services, and Databases
--> Distributed Intra- and Inter-Domain Storage/FileSystems/Database
--> Distributed Intra- and Inter-Domain Scheduling of resources
--> Resources Mobility and Multi-tenancy
- Protocols and Interoperability
--> Adaptive Protocols for Generic Cloud Services
--> Inter-Domain Service-Specific Adaptive Protocols
- Private, Public, Community, Hybrid Clouds
--> Addressability, Networking Extensions, Service Quality Agreement
- Cloud Service Logging and Monitoring
--> Including Auditing and Verification
- Soft and Hard Privacy and Security for Cloud-based Services
--> Process, Practice and Mechanisms
- Risk, Resiliency, and SLA (RRS) of Services in Clouds
--> Risk-tolerance, MMTF, MMTR, etc. for Components and Apps/Services (End-to-End)
- Cloud Service and Infrastructure Management
--> Including Visualization, Automation, Debugging and Diagnosis
- Reports from CCNS management Experiments and Filed Deployments
--> University, Consortia, Industry/ Field Trials, etc.
- Mobility Management in Cloud Computing
--> Cloud service hosting mobility and service migration
--> Elastic computing using mobile codes
- Policy management in Cloud computing
--> Regulations and export control of using Cloud computing
