Call For Papers

The ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing 2015 (ACM SoCC 2015) will be the sixth in a new series of symposia that brings together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners interested in cloud computing. ACM SoCC is the premier conference on cloud computing; it is the only conference co-sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Groups on Management of Data (SIGMOD) and on Operating Systems (SIGOPS). SoCC will be held in Kohala Coast, Hawaii. It will be co-located with VLDB 2015.

The scope of SoCC is broad and encompasses diverse data management and systems topics such as software as a service, virtualization, scalable cloud data services, and data management and analytics at scale. Many facets of systems and data management issues must be revisited in the context of cloud computing. Suggested topics for paper submissions include but are not limited to:
•Administration and Manageability
•Data Privacy
•Data Services Architectures
•Distributed and Parallel Query Processing
•Energy Management
•Distributed and Cloud Networking
•High Availability and Reliability
•Infrastructure Technologies
•Large Scale Cloud Applications

•Programming Models
•Provisioning and Metering
•Resource Management and Performance
•Scientific Data Management
•Security of Services
•Service Level Agreements
•Storage Architectures
•Transactional Models
•Virtualization Technologies

Paper Submission: Authors are invited to submit original papers that are not being considered for publication in any other forum. Manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format and formatted in 10-point type using the templates available below.

A submission to the symposium may be one of the following types:

1.Research papers (short or long): Original research work in the broad area of cloud computing. We solicit both full papers (12 pages) and short papers (6 pages). The former will tend to be descriptions of complete technical work, while the latter will tend to be descriptions of interesting, innovative ideas, which nevertheless require more work to mature.

2.Industrial papers (short or long): Presentations describing experiences with deployed, state-of-the-art cloud systems. As for research papers, industrial papers can be either long papers or short papers.

3.Vision papers (short): Speculative but well-reasoned, thought-provoking essays. We will only consider short papers in this category.

All SoCC submissions will be held to a high quality standard, and evaluated based on their originality, technical merit, topical relevance, value to the community, and likelihood of leading to insightful technical discussions at the symposium. Submissions will be kept confidential. On rare occasion, long submissions may be accepted as “short” papers (pending authors’ approval and significant shortening).

All papers must be submitted by 20:59:59 PM PDT on April 24th, 2015. No extensions will be permitted. Page count and formatting limits will be strictly observed.

Posters and demonstrations: Researchers and practitioners wishing to showcase and get feedback on work that is in an early stage, and hence not yet ready for publication as a paper, are invited to submit a proposal for a poster, optionally accompanied by a demo. See the call for posters for more information.
•All papers (long and short) accepted at the conference will be required to also present a poster during the poster session.
•Authors of VLDB 2015 papers on topics relevant to the SoCC community are encouraged to submit a poster on the topic of the VLDB paper.


Papers must meet the formatting rules in order to be considered for publication. We cannot give extensions for reformatting.

Page limit: these limits exclude references but include all other content (e.g. appendices):
•Long papers: 12 pages max
•Short papers: 6 pages max

Following the list of author names and affiliations on the first page, submissions should include a line that specifies the paper’s “type” (research, industrial, or vision) and “length” (long or short).

Fonts & format: Please use this style file (an example latex file is here). Please keep \usepackage{mathptmx} to get the correct math mode font.
•Papers must be formatted using a 10pt font on 12pt leading for letter-sized (8.5" by 11") paper. The text blocks must follow ACM guidelines: double-column, with each column 9.25" by 3.33"; leave a 0.33" space between columns.
•Judicious use of color is permitted, but please bear in mind that not everybody has access to a color printer, and some people cannot distinguish some colors. Figures should be clear when printed in black & white.
•Include page numbers.
•Symbols and axis labels used in graphs should be legible as printed, and not require magnification.
•Limit the file size to less than 15 MB.
•Please read - and follow - this advice.

Reviewing is single-blind: author identities need not be concealed.

All papers will be shepherded, and papers will only be accepted for publication pending shepherd’s approval.

Submit your paper here:

Camera-ready preparation and copyright form: Instructions for the authors of accepted papers on how to complete your submission with copyright release and camera ready will be posted here later.
