ScalCom 2017

Nowadays parallel architectures are ubiquitous and the arena of computing and communicating devices is quickly reaching an unprecedented scale. The trend is to keep increasing both the number of cores in a single device as well as the number of communicating devices. In this massively parallel and heterogeneous context, the need for scalable computing is everywhere and scalability is rapidly becoming a central aspect of computing.

The 17th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and Communications (ScalCom) provides a forum for researchers willing to present their original work on scalable parallel and distributed computing. ScalCom offers a unique opportunity to exchange ideas at the highest technical level related to communication networks, performance analysis, distributed applications with particular emphasis on scalability.

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.

** Topics **

- Cloud & fog computing:
-- X as a Service, where X includes Backend, Business Process, Database, Information, Infrastructure, Network, Platform, Security, Software, and Storage
-- performance, dependability, and service level agreements
-- cloud programming models and tools (incl. formal analysis and verification)
-- fog computing algorithms and infrastructures

- GPU, accelerators and novel architectures for Scalability-Rethinking:
-- parallel programming models and tools (incl. formal analysis and verification)
-- embedded parallel and distributed systems
-- heterogenous platforms
-- GPU, MIC, and FPGA based parallel systems
-- parallel I/O
-- memory organisation

- Modelling and Simulation of Large Complex Systems
--complex systems modelling and simulation
--cellular automata, genetic algorithms, neural networks, swarm Intelligence implementations
-- integrated approach to optimization and simulation
-- high-performance Software developed to solve science (e.g., biological, physical, and social), engineering, medicine, and humanities problems

- Extreme scale systems and applications
-- peta-scale and exa-scale workloads
-- high-performance and high-throughput computing
-- run-time systems for extreme scale applications
-- fault-tolerance in large scale applications
-- near-data processing and data-centric approaches

- Mobile, wireless and pervasive computing
-- queueing theory
-- design and performance analysis of communication networks
-- communication protocols
-- distributed applications with emphasis on scalability
-- distributed applications deployment
-- internet of things
-- pervasive computing
-- distributed robotics
-- energy
-- convergence of communication and computing

** 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. Over-length submissions will not be accepted. Submissions will be judged on correctness, relevance, originality, significance, and clarity.

** Publication **

All accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Computer Society. The final paper preparation and submission instructions will be published after the notification of acceptance. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their papers at the Conference. Conference proceedings will be submitted to IEEE Xplore, and for indexing among others, to DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.

** Best Paper Awards and Special Issue **

Best papers will be awarded at the conference and invited to submit an extended version of the paper in a special issue of a ISI and Scopus indexed journal.
