The first virtual meeting of the CSCC ( has been
held. Work is underway to prepare for the first Face to Face meeting
in Salt Lake City on June 21st.

Several key areas were discussed, but the ones that surfaced to the
top were the identification of candidate Working Groups and also the
nomination process for the Steering Committee.

The working group discussion evolved around identifying areas which
the members felt that further discussion was needed to ensure that the
members' requirements were addressed without reinventing work that has
already been completed. The following is a list of the candidate
working groups, of which, the ones with the highest priority will be
launched on the F2F:

+ IaaS - Evolution from Infrastructure to Workload Management
+ PaaS - Landscape and Boundary
+ SaaS - Industry Vertical ( Retail, Finance, Telco and others)
+ Mapping the Cloud Space
+ Social Business Standards for Cloud
+ Practical Guide for Cloud Computing
+ Cloud Computing Reference Architecture
+ Cloud Computing for Media
+ Cloud Computing for Legal
+ Industry requirements for Cloud Computing

At the F2F meeting, the chairs of the respective WGs will be elected
by the WG participants.

will be put in place with the members of the steering committee coming
from the membership. Elections of the Steering Committee will be held
on June 21st. To take a leadership role within the CSCC as a member of
