Friday, September 27, 2013

The A4Cloud project is organising a Workshop on Accountability, Risk and Trust in Cloud Services (A4Cloud Risk Workshop) to be held in conjunction with Cloud Security Alliance EMEA Congress 2013 on 27th September, 2013, at the Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh, Scotland.

The Theme, Topics and Objective of A4Cloud Risk Workshop

A4Cloud Risk Workshop aims to provide a venue where technical experts and major stakeholders from the field exchange their views and best practices about the notions of accountability, risk and trust in cloud services, future Internet services and cloud service mashups. It is a major milestone for the requirements elicitation related to cloud risks in A4Cloud Project.

The Format of the Workshop

The workshop will have four consecutive sessions. Each session will be 90 minute long and start with a 15 or 25 minute presentation provided by a technical expert from A4Cloud Consortium. After the presentations, the audience will be split into three syndicates of 9-10 participants, one moderator and one observer. Moderators and observers are from A4Cloud Consortium members. Then each syndicate will use focus group methodology to exchange their views and perceptions on the topic of the session in 75 minutes.

The minutes of the workshop will be reviewed by two external reviewers, and edited. The minutes including the presentations will be released to the workshop participants after the workshop.
