    The paper “Accounting Models for Cloud Computing: A Systematic Mapping Study”, was accepted for publication at GCA’12 – The 2012 International Conference on Grid Computing and Applications (GCA). This activity is part of the project  S.Ma.R.T – Social Machines Research Team.

    Cloud services change the economics of computing by enabling users to pay only for the capacity that they actually use. In this context, cloud providers have their own accounting models including their billing mechanisms and pricing schemes to achieve this efficient pay-as-you-go model. Thus it is important to study this heterogeneity aiming to map out the existing accounting models to become possible new proposals or future standardizations. Therefore, we performed a mapping study focusing on accounting models for cloud computing,  in wich a total of 23 primary studies were considered, evidencing 5 accounting models, 23 different pricing scheme types and 4 primary studies related to SLA (Service-Level Agreement) composition. Although the significant number of studies found address grid computing it was possible to identify one accounting model which was very complete from different points of view for cloud environments.
