Call For Papers

ScalCom 2016

Parallel and distributed computing has undergone impressive change over recent years. The whole hardware industry shifted to both multicore and mobile platforms expanding the arena of communicating devices to an unprecedented scale. Communication networks have known great developments and many new applications in the same time. Scalability has rapidly become one of central aspect of the disciplines. It is of paramount importance to review and assess these new developments in comparison with recent research achievements in the well-established areas of scalable computing and communications, from industry and the scientific community. The 16th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and Communications (ScalCom) will provide a forum for the presentation of these and other issues through original research presentations and will facilitate the exchange of knowledge and new ideas at the highest technical level.

We invite submissions of high quality research papers describing fully developed results or on-going foundational and applied work relating to all aspects of scalable computing and communications. The program committee will interpret it very broadly; everything from engineering principles to practical experiences on different levels of a parallel and distributed system. We particularly encourage submissions on topics of emerging interest in the research and development communities.

Submission guidelines

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in length (and in the Conference proceedings format – double column, 10pt) including a 150-200 word abstract.

Paper Publication:

Accepted conference papers will be published by IEEE CPS (IEEE-DL, EI, Scopus indexed). At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and present their work at the conference; otherwise the paper will not be included in the proceedings. Best Paper and Best Demo Awards will be presented to high quality work. Selected papers, after further extensions and revisions, will be recommended to special issues. More details will be available soon.
