Dear All:

On behalf of Melbourne CLOUDS Lab and the Cloudbus Project, I am pleased to share 2019 Annual Report detailing its R&D activities, outcomes, and community services. For full report, please visit:

The highlights of our research activities and outcomes in 2019 are:

* The CLOUDS Lab successfully hosted  ARC research projects (Discovery and Linkage Projects) along with attracting two new research grants. All our publications can be accessed from:

* The Lab’s flagship Cloudbus Project has released various new modules for Aneka, CloudSim, iFogSim, and Fogbus. iFogSim, building on CloudSim, has emerged as a de-facto toolkit for modelling and simulation of Fog and Edge computing environments. It has been used by several researchers in academia and industries around the world.

* Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) administered by the Australian Research Council (ARC), in its ERA 2018 evaluation report released in March 2019, offered Distributed Computing research at the University of Melbourne highest rating (5 – “well above” the world standard).

* Members have presented over 40 invited talks that include 12 keynotes delivered at international conferences/seminars held in Australia, India, Indonesia, Mauritius, Ireland, and UK.

* “2019 Web of Science Highly Cited Researcher” recognition from Thomson Reuters; and “Best of the World” in Computing Systems field (for quality, volume, and impact) recognition by the 2019 Australian Research Magazine.

* The Lab housed several (short and long term) international visitors (academics and PhD students) from China, Iran, India, Italy, and Norway,

I wish you all a peaceful, healthy and safe rest of the year 2020.

Take care.

Best regards
