Call For Papers

Scope and Interests

Big data has been manifesting the industry and academic community for the past few years. Data intensive throughput oriented applications such as videos, games, music, databases are flooding the Internet with tremendous amount of data flowing through as digital content. Retrieving, processing, distilling, delivering the content in real time is of significant importance to end users. One distinguishing feature of these applications is in the amount of data-level parallelism available to process the data independently on scalable multi-core chips or Cloud/Grid computing environments. On the other hand, there are many complex applications such as biological networks, social networks, finance, medicine that are not only data and compute intensive but also communication and bandwidth intensive. The data structures used in these problems are irregular, usually, pointer-based, graphs or trees that makes solving these problems on high performance/distributed computers challenging. To handle the dynamic nature of big data successfully, architectures, networks, memory, algorithms and programming languages should be scalable and extendable to accommodate the varying needs of the applications. Moreover, with service oriented computing gaining popularity, fault tolerant, scalable private and public Cloud, scalable and adaptable service level agreements become important.

ScalCom-14 focuses on the “Foundations” -- advances in parallel multi-core architectures, distributed Grid and Cloud computing environments with respect to networking, memory, fault tolerance, service oriented computing; “Applications” -- data/compute/communication/bandwidth intensive problems from various disciplines; “Theory” -- innovative scalable parallel/distributed algorithms involving heuristic, meta heuristics or graph algorithm partitioning techniques; “Performance” -- metrics, performance measurement, benchmark design, run-time performance management.

The goal of ScalCom-14 is to provide an international forum for researchers working in myriad areas of scalable computing and communications to share their ideas and experiences. ScalCom-14 is soliciting original, previously unpublished work addressing research challenges and presenting advances in the design and implementation of scalable computing and communication systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
