Call for Papers

Call for papers in pdf and in txt

Rapid advances in architectures, networks, and systems and middleware technologies are leading to new concepts in and platforms for computing, ranging from Clusters and Grids to Clouds and Datacenters. CCGrid is a series of very successful conferences, with the overarching goal of bringing together international researchers, developers, and users to provide an international forum to present leading research activities and results on a broad range of topics related to these concepts and platforms, and their applications.

  • Autonomic Computing and Cyberinfrastructure: Self-managed behavior, models and technologies; Autonomic paradigms and systems (control-based, bio-inspired, emergent, etc.); Bio-inspired optimizations and computing
  • Cloud Computing: Cloud architectures; Software tools and techniques for clouds
  • Multicore and Accelerator-based Computing: Software and application techniques to utilize multicore architectures and accelerators in clusters, grids, and clouds
  • Performance Modeling and Evaluation: Performance prediction and modeling; Monitoring and evaluation tools; Analysis of system and application performance; Benchmarks and testbeds  
  • Programming Models, Systems, and Fault-Tolerant Computing: Programming models and environments for cluster, cloud, and grid computing; Fault-tolerant systems, programs and algorithms; Systems software to support efficient computing
  • Scheduling and Resource Management: Techniques to schedule jobs and resources on cluster, cloud, and grid computing platforms; SLA definition and enforcement
PAPER SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Authors are invited to submit papers electronically in PDF format. Submitted manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may not exceed 8 letter-size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references using the IEEE format for conference proceedings: www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting. Submissions not conforming to these guidelines may be returned without review. Authors should make sure that their file will print on a printer that uses letter-size (8.5 x 11) paper. The official language of the conference is English. All manuscripts will be reviewed and will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference attendees. 

Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines will be rejected without review and further action may be taken, including (but not limited to) notifications sent to the heads of the institutions of the authors and sponsors of the conference. Submissions received after the due date, exceeding the page limit, or not appropriately structured may not be considered. Authors may contact the conference chairs for more information. The proceedings will be published through the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA, and will be made available online through the IEEE Digital Library.
