Foreword: This book contains the proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science (CLOSER 2018) which was organized by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC). CLOSER 2018 was held in cooperation with ACM Special Interest Group on Management Information Systems (ACM SIGMIS) and EuroCloud. We are proud to inform you that the program included four plenary keynote lectures, given by internationally distinguished researchers, namely – Lee Gillam (University of Surrey, United Kingdom), Tobias Hoellwarth (EuroCloud Europe, Austria), Péter Kacsuk (MTA SZTAKI, Hungary) and Mike Papazoglou (Tilburg University, Netherlands). CLOSER 2018 received 94 paper submissions from 33 countries, in all continents. To evaluate each submission, a double blind paper review was performed by the Program Committee, whose members are highly qualified researchers in CLOSER topic areas. Based on the classifications provided, the full paper acceptance ratio was 22%. This strict acceptance ratio shows the intention to preserve the high quality of this event, which we expect to improve even further in the years to come. A short list of papers presented at the conference will be selected for publication of extended and revised versions in a special issue of Springer's Journal of Grid Computing and in the CCIS (Communications in Computer and Information Science) Series book by Springer. All papers presented at this conference will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. Conferences are also meeting places where collaboration projects can emerge from social contacts amongst the participants. Therefore, in order to promote the development of research and professional networks the conference includes in its social program a Conference Social Event & Banquet in the evening of March 20, 2018. We would like to express our thanks to all the people who contributed to CLOSER 2018. First of all to the authors, whose quality work has been essential for this conference; secondly to all members of the Program Committee and auxiliary reviewers, who helped us with their expertise and valuable time. We would also like to deeply thank the invited speakers for their excellent contribution in sharing their knowledge and vision. Finally, a word of appreciation for the hard work of the secretariat: organizing a conference of this level is a task that can only be achieved by the collaborative effort of a dedicated and highly capable team. We wish you all an inspiring conference and an unforgettable stay in the lovely city of Funchal, Madeira, Portugal. We hope to meet you again next year for CLOSER 2019, details of which will soon be available at http://closer.scitevents.org. (More)
