Call For Papers

1st International Workshop on
Cloud Computing and Scientific Applications (CCSA 2011)

In conjunction with the 4th IEEE International
Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC 2011) December 5-7,
Melbourne, Australia

CCSA workshop has been formed to promote research and development
activities focused on enabling and scaling scientific applications using
distributed computing paradigms, such as cluster, Grid, and Cloud
Computing. With the rapid emergence of software systems and their
applicability, the volume of users are growing exponentially. User
requirements are getting more and more complex. Existing computing
infrastructure, software system designs, and use cases will have to take
into account the enormity in volume of requests, size of data, computing
load, locality and type of users, and so forth.

Cloud computing promises reliable services delivered through
next-generation data centers that are built on compute and storage
virtualization technologies. Users will be able to access applications
and data from a ?Cloud? anywhere in the world on demand. In other words,
the Cloud appears to be a single point of access for all the computing
needs of users. The users are assured that the Cloud infrastructure is
robust and will always be available at any time.

CCSA brings together researchers and practitioners from around the world
to share their experiences on modeling, executing, and monitoring
scientific applications on Clouds.

In this workshop, we are interested in receiving innovative work on
enabling and scaling computing systems to support the execution of
scientific applications. The target audience include researchers and
industry practitioners who are interested in distributed systems,
particularly focusing on scaling of applications using Cloud computing.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

- Enabling applications using distributed systems
- Architectural Models for scaling of applications
- Novel applications for cloud computing, including games and social networks
- Novel cloud programming models
- Innovative cloud service models
- Support for scalable and elastic cloud services
- Cloud support for mobile applications and Content Delivery Networks
- Reliability of applications and services running on the cloud
- Performance monitoring for cloud applications
- Cloud use case studies
- Scientific computing in the cloud
- Business computing in the cloud
- Social computing in the cloud

All papers must be submitted electronically and in PDF format through easychair.

The material presented should be original and not published or under
submission elsewhere. Authors should submit full papers of up to 6
pages, strictly following the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings
Manuscript style (available at,
using two-column, single-space format, with 10-point font size.
Figures and references must be included in the 6 pages. Oversized
papers will be automatically rejected by the committee. At least
one of the authors of each accepted paper must register early to
attend the conference, in order for the paper to appear in the
conference proceedings.

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 length limit, or not appropriately structured may
also not be considered. The proceedings will be published and
will be made online through the IEEE Xplore.

All papers, after presentation at the conference, will be invited to
submit their revised version to a special issue of the IJCSE -
International Journal of Computational Science and Engineering
(published by Inderscience). IJCSE is a refereed international journal
providing an international forum to report, discuss and exchange
experimental results, novel designs, work-in-progress, experience, case
studies, and trend-setting ideas in the area of computational science
and engineering. It is abstracted and indexed in ACM Guide to Computing
Literature, Computer and Information Systems, Computer Database, EI
Compendex, Engineered Materials Abstracts, Google Scholar, Pascal,
Scirus , and Scopus. For additional information about IJCSE, please
