Overview the 2010 IEEE Workshop on Cloud Computing


WETICE is an annual international forum for state-of-the-art research in enabling technologies for collaboration, consisting of a number of cognate workshops. So far 18 WETICE conferences have taken place.


What sets WETICE apart from larger conferences is that the workshops are kept small enough to promote fruitful discussions on the latest technology developments, directions, problems, and requirements.

Each workshop includes paper presentations, workgroup discussions, keynote sessions and a final joint session to summarize each groups' findings.


Following last years's inaugural workshop on collaboration and cloud computing, we are pleased to announce the 2nd International Workshop under the aegis of WETICE 2010, 19th IEEE International Workshops on Enabling Technologies: Infrastructures for Collaborative Enterprises.





Technological Education Institute of Larissa, Larissa, Greece
Conference Dates
June 28th to 30th , 2010
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)

Dr. Y. V. Ramana Reddy is a Professor of Computer Science and Director of the Concurrent Engineering Research Center at West Virginia University. He has worked on a number of research areas with the central theme of enabling technologies for improvement of collaborative processes involving widely distributed teams. The areas of research include Artificial Intelligence, Knowledge Based Simulation, Concurrent Engineering, Medical Informatics, Telemedicine, Distance Learning, and Intelligent Decision Support.
Professor Reddy s research was funded by both by Government and Industry. The sponsors include, Defense Advanced Research projects Agency (DARPA), Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), national Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), General Electric, Bell Atlantic, Bellcore, DEC, HP, Hitachi and many other organizations. During the last fifteen years, Professor Reddy directed externally supported research totaling more than US$50 Million.

Professor Reddy’s research resulted in more than 50 publications. He was a keynote/plenary speaker at numerous national and international conferences in UK, France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Russia, Japan, Thailand, Australia and India. Professor Reddy pioneered several key concepts. These include Knowledge Based Simulation (KBS), Knowledge Representation using C, Concurrent Engineering, and the use of the Web Browser for distributed multimedia patient records (prior to the creation of Netscape). The last area was featured on the ABC World News with Peter Jennings, Wall Street Journal and many newspapers around the world including Le Monde in Paris.


Professor Reddy s work on Knowledge Representation (Laser) was the basis for formation of a new company, Bell Atlantic Knowledge Systems (BAKS) in 1987. He served as the Chief Scientist for BAKS. His work on Medical Informatics led to the formation of CareFlow Net (CFN) funded by a Wall Street Investment Banking firm. CFN is one of the largest suppliers of technology for Internet based medical transcriptions in US. Professor Reddy serves as the Chief Scientist for CareFlow|Net and also served as one of the founding directors.


Dr. Rao Mikkilineni is currently, the co‐founder of Kawa Objects, a Silicon Valley startup working on next generation cloud infrastructure. Rao has 27 years of experience in Telecommunications and IT industries. He has held research and senior management positions at AT&T Bell Labs, Bellcore, US West, Network Programs Inc, SS8 Networks, LightSand Communications, and Hitachi Data Systems. His practical experience in applying leading‐edge technologies to radically improve productivity and quality of Operations and Management in telephony, IP networking and storage networking provides a unique perspective on the role of Enterprise Systems and Technologies. His current interest is in assisting the enterprise data center to become customer‐centric and cost‐effective using real‐time service management systems. He works with large and small enterprise IT departments making a transition to utility computing where managed computing, network and storage resources are available ubiquitously, on‐demand and the users can pay
based on usage.


Rao also has worked as a researcher at Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Columbia University and University of Paris. He has published many articles and presented papers in various industry forums. Rao has a PhD in Physics from the University of California, San Diego, and a Master's Degree from the Japan American Institute of Management Science in Hawaii and Sophia University in Tokyo. He also teaches enterprise security at Golden Gate University in San Francisco.
