IEEE ScalCom 2017

Nowadays parallel architectures are ubiquitous and the arena of computing
and communicating devices is quickly reaching an unprecedented scale.
The trend is to keep increasing both the number of cores in a single device
as well as the number of communicating devices. In this massively parallel
and heterogeneous context, the need for scalable computing is everywhere
and scalability is rapidly becoming a central aspect of computing.

The 17th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and Communications
(ScalCom 2017) provides a forum for researchers willing to present their
original work on scalable parallel and distributed computing. ScalCom offers a
unique opportunity to exchange ideas at the highest technical level related to
communication networks, performance analysis, distributed applications with
particular emphasis on scalability.

We invite submissions of high-quality research papers describing fully
developed results or on-going foundational and applied work relating to all
aspects of scalable computing and communications. The program committee will
interpret it very broadly; everything from engineering principles to practical
experiences on different levels of a parallel and distributed system including
High Performance Computing (HPC), massively parallel systems and heterogeneous
computing. We particularly encourage submissions on topics of emerging interest
in the research and development communities.

The topics of the 17th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and
Communications include, but are not limited to:

Cloud & fog computing:
X as a Service, where X includes Backend, Business Process, Database,
Infrastructure, Network, Platform, Security, Software, and Storage
performance, dependability, and service level agreements
cloud programming models and tools
fog computing algorithms and infrastructures.

Extreme scale, multi-core, GPU, accelerators and novel architectures for Scalability-Rethinking:
parallel programming models and tools
GPU, MIC, and FPGA based parallel systems, heterogeneous platforms
Extreme scale systems and applications
peta-scale and exa-scale workloads
high-performance and high-throughput computing
fault-tolerance in large scale applications
near-data processing and data-centric approaches.

Modelling and Simulation of Large Complex Systems:
cellular automata, genetic algorithms, neural networks, swarm
Intelligence implementations
integrated approach to optimization and simulation
high-performance Software developed to solve science (e.g., biological,
physical, and social), engineering, medicine, and humanities problems.

Mobile, wireless and pervasive computing:
queueing theory; design and performance analysis of communication networks
distributed applications with emphasis on scalability; distributed applications deployment
internet of things, communication protocols, energy aware computing
pervasive computing, distributed robotics
convergence of communication and computing.

Tools for Big Data:
statistical data mining
extreme big data
convergence of IoT, cloud and big data
