GECON 2022 builds upon the very successful tradition of the
conference previous editions since 2003. GECON solicits
contributions that are interdisciplinary, combining business
and economic aspects with engineering and computer science
related themes.

/Important Deadlines/
- Full Paper submission: June 30th, 2022
- Short Paper submission: June 30th, 2022
- Poster Submission (Extended abstract,4 pages): June 30th, 2022
- Notification of acceptance of papers: July 19th, 2022
- Camera Ready deadline: July 26th, 2022
- Poster Submission for accepted papers: August 2nd, 2022

/Topics of Interest/
As a global market for infrastructures, platforms, and
software services emerge, the need to understand and deal with
its implications and its interdisciplinary challenges is
quickly growing. To address this, GECON encourages the
submission of papers, which combine at least one
economic/legal area and one technologic area. GECON list of
areas includes but is not limited to:

Trustworthiness of services
Ecosystem economics
Incentive design, strategic behavior & game theory
Market mechanisms, auctions models, and bidding languages
Economic efficiency
Techno-economic analysis and modeling
Pricing schemes and revenue models
Preemptible computing
Metering, accounting, and billing
Cost-benefit analysis
Automated trading and bidding support tools
Trust, reputation, security, and risk management
Performance monitoring, optimization, and prediction
Economics of Open Data
Trustworthiness and Assurances for Quality of Data
Economic impact of distributed storage solutions
Energy efficiency
Business models and strategies
Decision support

-Law and Legal Aspects-
Standardization, interoperability, and legal aspects
Service level Agreements (SLAs)
Negotiation, monitoring, and enforcement
Governance of ecosystems

-Clouds, Grids, Systems and Services-
IaaS, SaaS, PaaS and Federation of resources
Vertical scaling, burstable computing, vertical elasticity
Resource management: allocation, sharing, and scheduling
Capacity planning
Virtualization and containers
Service science, management and engineering (SSME)
Software engineering

-Applications and Technologies Transforming the Economy-
Smart grids, smart cities, and smart buildings
Energy-aware infrastructures and services
Fog, edge, cloud computing
Micro-services, serverless computing
AI-enabled computing continuum from Cloud to Edge
Community networks
Social networks
Social computing
Shared public infrastructures for knowledge exchange:
(e.g. IPFS, Origin Trail, Decentralized Knowledge Graphs)
Big data
Reports on industry test-beds and operational markets
Data stream ingestion and complex event processing
Open source

/Publication and Submission Guidelines for Papers/
Original full papers and short papers (work-in-progress papers),
which are not currently under review by another conference, will
be considered. Manuscripts will be reviewed based on technical
merit, originality, and relevance. Past acceptance rates have
been around 30 per cent in recent years.

Full papers and short papers (work-in-progress papers) shall be
submitted using the Springer LNCS format. Submitted full papers
should not exceed 12 pages and WIP papers should not exceed 8
pages (including references and appendices). For further
details, visit the GECON 2022 web page.

Paper submissions are managed through EasyChair at

The proceedings will be published by Springer LNCS.

Extended versions of up to 10 accepted papers in the Computer
Science field will be invited for publication in a special
issue of the
- Elsevier Journal of Future Generation Computing Systems.
For papers targeting mainly business and economic aspects, a
special issue of the
- Springer Electronic Markets Journal or the
- Elsevier Electronic Commerce Research and Applications
- Springer Electronic Commerce Research
with up to 15 papers is foreseen.

/ Poster and New Ideas Paper Submission Guidelines /

Posters can be submitted as an extended abstract (4 pages +
1 page poster) which should not exceed 4 pages using the
Springer LNCS format describing the poster content, research,
relevance and importance to the GECON community. Additionally,
the submission must include a fifth page that is an A4 draft
of the poster.

New-idea papers provide a unique opportunity for PhD students
and young researchers to present their new ideas, and senior
researchers to present their starting activities, current progress,
or novel approaches to their works. New ideas papers will be
included in the poster sessions.

Authors of accepted full papers and short papers (work-in-progress
papers) are also welcome to present their work in poster
sessions, giving them a higher visibility than just giving a talk.

Poster dimensions: A0 size is recommended but A1 is also acceptable.

/ Accepted Tutorial: “Serverless Computing: State of the Art
and Research Challenges” (Karim Djemame) /
Serverless computing is revolutionizing cloud application
development as it offers the ability to create modular, highly-scalable,
fault-tolerant applications. The serverless architecture has seen
widespread adoption from tech industry giants such as Amazon,
Google and as well as the public domain, with open-source projects
such as Apache OpenWhisk, Fission and OpenFaaS. This tutorial will
present the state-of-the-art in serverless computing research, and
provide useful insights into the main challenges that motivate
researchers to work on this topic. It will also identify research
gaps for future research.
