EDCCS 2024 : Workshop on Engineering techniques for Distributed Computing Continuum Systems
Call For Papers
Workshop on Engineering techniques for Distributed Computing Continuum Systems
Under 44th IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS 2024), 16-19 Jul 2024, New Jersey, USA.
Distributed Computing Continuum Systems (DCCS) represent a disruptive transformation for the distributed computing paradigm, where boundaries between disparate computing environments vanish, and a seamless continuum emerges. DCCSs are based on the idea of a continuum of computing resources, where each resource has different capabilities and characteristics and, furthermore, different tenants and owners. As cloud computing, edge computing, mobile devices, and other computing devices become a unified ecosystem, numerous opportunities and challenges arise. Creating a cohesive ecosystem in which resources are dynamically allocated across different tiers in accordance with the specific needs of the task at hand while service objectives, including QoS and QoE, are dynamically fulfilled is an ambitious task. In our workshop, we gather papers on various theoretical and practical aspects of DCCS with a special focus on works that show DCCS inherent heterogeneity, e.g., heterogeneity of devices, computing tiers, tenants, owners, etc., and build solutions able to benefit from these differences while making the distributed system to behave as a cohesive entity. The outcome of this special track will produce a roadmap and an initial set of techniques for DCCS researchers and practitioners that will revolutionize the practical implementation of various real-life applications.
This session is a significant step in exploring the potential of distributed computing continuum systems, focusing on revolutionizing interdisciplinary collaboration between researchers, practitioners, and stakeholders in the field of distributed systems. The outcomes of this session will serve as a reference for future developments in this area and help define a roadmap for the use of computing continuum systems in various applications. The session aligns with the Conference’s mission to promote cutting-edge distributed systems research and applications to address critical challenges facing society.

Deadline for Submit Full-text: April 16, 2024 (Friday)
Notification of paper acceptance: May 06, 2024 (Monday)
Camera-ready paper submissions: May 10, 2024 (Friday)
Papers must be original and unpublished, and must not be submitted concurrently for publication elsewhere. All paper submissions should follow the IEEE 8.5″ x 11″ two-column format using 10pt fonts and the IEEE Conference template (downloadable by selecting “Conferences” in the IEEE-Template Selector https://template-selector.ieee.org/). Each submission can have up to 11 pages (including figures, tables, appendices, and references). Papers exceeding this page limit or with smaller fonts will be rejected without review.
The full paper review process is double-blind. Authors are required to take all reasonable steps to preserve the anonymity of their submission. The submission must not include author information and must not include citations or discussion of related work that would make the authorship apparent. While authors can upload their paper to institutional or other preprint repositories such as arXiv.org before reviewing is complete, we generally discourage this since it places anonymity at risk. If authors decide to upload their paper to a preprint site, they must make sure the title and abstract of their submission to ICDCS are different from the title and abstract of the preprint version, so that it is not immediately obvious the two versions are the same paper.
If your submission is accepted for publication, up to 2 over length pages may be purchased for the final camera-ready version. For each accepted paper, at least one author is required to pay a full author registration and attend the conference to present their work on site. No-show paper will be reported to the publisher and removed from the conference publication. For authors with multiple papers accepted by the conference, a separate author registration is required for each paper.
