The IEEE Technical Community on Cloud Computing (TCCLD) has transitioned from an initiative under IEEE Future Directions to be operational under the Computer Society (CS), first as a Special Technical Community, and keeping the IEEE participating societies involved. The community provides a forum for members to broaden professional contacts, facilitates information exchange, and stimulates the growth of research, education and industry in cloud computing. TCCLD promotes and sponsors upcoming and prominent conferences as well as competitions, and contributes to outreach to researchers in different regions.Issues related to the design and implementation of cloud systems and solutions are of interest, as are cloud solutions in a broader sense. Technical areas include, but are not limited to, cloud computing infrastructure; cloud systems; interoperability withfog/edge systems, services and applications; cloud security; cloud standards; big data on clouds; mobile cloud; cloud communications; cloud applications; business and management; IoT on clouds; and sustainable clouds. The activities include also blogs, podcasts, and social media. Our social media presence includes LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Flipboard. Publications such as IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing (TCC) and IEEE Cloud Magazine are part of the community, as spin-offs under the IEEE Cloud Computing Initiative. Refer to the community website to participate and to contribute.
