Call for Papers

for the
at the
29th Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and network-based Processing

Valladolid, Spain - On-line conference
(Virtual edition)

March 10-12, 2021

Cloud Computing covers a broad range of distributed computing principles
from infrastructure (e.g distributed storage, reconfigurable networks)
to new programming platforms (e.g MS Azure, Google Appe Engine), and
internet-based applications. Particularly, Infrastructure as a Service
(IaaS) Cloud systems - such as Amazon EC2, Rackspace or Google Compute
Engine - allow the dynamic creation, destruction and management of
virtual machines (VMs) as part of virtual computing infrastructures.
IaaS Clouds provide a high-level of abstraction to the end user, one
that allows the creation of on-demand services through a pay as you go
infrastructure combined with elasticity. The increasingly large range of
choices and availability of IaaS toolkits has also allowed creation of
cloud solutions and frameworks even suitable for private deployment and
practical IaaS use on smaller scales. This special session on Cloud
Computing is intended to be a forum for the exchange of ideas and
experiences on the use of Cloud Computing technologies and applications
with compute and data intensive workloads. The special session also aims
at presenting the challenges and opportunities offered by the
development of open-source Cloud Computing solutions - such as OpenStack
or OpenNebula - themselves, as well as case studies in applications of
Cloud Computing. With the rapid evolution and proliferation of Internet
of Things systems, this session also aims to provide a forum for case
studies on integrated use of clouds, edge and fog systems in support of
IoT scenarios. The general venue will be a good occasion to share,
learn, and discuss the latest results in this field of research. The
special session program will include presentations of peer-reviewed papers.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Virtualization and container technologies and their effects on
IaaS solutions
• Incorporating beyond-CPU virtualization (e.g., I/O, GPU) aspects
to cloud infrastructures
• Cloud Computing resource management (e.g., Virtual Machine
scheduling and management algorithms)
• Operational challenges, federative and interoperability aspects
of private, hybrid and public IaaS systems
• Novel IaaS architectures, platforms and applications (e.g.,
incorporating IoT systems)
• Virtual machine/container image and virtual appliance storage
management (e.g., caching, repositories, marketplaces)
• Security and Privacy aspects of data management in clouds and IoT
• Cloud Computing for scientific, compute and/or data intensive
• Performance evaluation, modeling, simulation and prediction of
IaaS clouds and their relation to IoT (including cost and price models)
• Programming models, tools, orchestration techniques and workflows
involving Cloud and IoT systems
• Cloud, Edge and Fog Computing deployment models
• Cloud, Edge and Fog storage and I/O
• Cloud, Edge and Fog services for the Internet of Things
• Scalability issues of IoT systems
• Autonomous control in Internet of Things, multi-clouds and
software defined networks

Submission guidelines
Authors are required to submit original, unpublished research or
overviews on infrastructure clouds and their applications. Submitted
manuscripts should not exceed 8 pages in the Conference proceedings
format (IEEEtran, double-column, 10pt). The special session applies
double-bind review: the paper should not contain authors’ names and
affiliations; in the reference list, references to the authors’ own work
entries should be substituted with the string "omitted for blind review”.

Submission site:

Please note, as the first step of the submission procedure, authors must
pick the cloud special session in order to be considered for inclusion
within the session.

All accepted papers will be included in the same volume as the main
conference's material, and they will be published by the Conference
Publishing Services (CPS). The Final Paper Preparation and Submission
Instructions will be published after the notification of acceptance.
Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their
papers at the Conference. Conference proceedings will be submitted to
IEEE explore, CSDL, and for indexing among others, to DBLP, Scopus
ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.

Important dates
Paper submission: Final, extended deadline: November 26, 2020
Acceptance notification: December 28, 2020
Camera ready paper due: January 17, 2021
