Call for Papers

for the
special session at the
27th Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and network-based Processing

Pavia, Italy
Conference dates: 13-15th February, 2019.


Cloud Computing covers a broad range of distributed computing principles from infrastructure (e.g distributed storage, reconfigurable networks) to new programming platforms (e.g MS Azure, Google App Engine), and internet-based applications. Particularly, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Cloud systems - such as Amazon EC2, Rackspace or Google Compute Engine - allow the dynamic creation, destruction and management of virtual machines (VMs) as part of virtual computing infrastructures. IaaS Clouds provide a high-level of abstraction to the end user, one that allows the creation of on-demand services through a pay as you go infrastructure combined with elasticity. The increasingly large range of choices and availability of IaaS toolkits has also allowed creation of cloud solutions and frameworks even suitable for private deployment and practical IaaS use on smaller scales. This special session on Cloud Computing is intended to be a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences on the use of Cloud Computing technologies and applications with compute and data intensive workloads. The special session also aims at presenting the challenges and opportunities offered by the development of open-source Cloud Computing solutions - such as OpenStack or OpenNebula - themselves, as well as case studies in applications of Cloud Computing. With the rapid evolution and proliferation of Internet of Things systems, we this session also aims to provide a forum for case studies on integrated use of clouds and IoT systems. The general venue will be a good occasion to share, learn, and discuss the latest results in this field of research. The special session program will include presentations of peer-reviewed papers.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Virtualization and container technologies and their effects on IaaS solutions
- Incorporating beyond-CPU virtualization (e.g., I/O, GPU) aspects to cloud infrastructures
- Cloud Computing resource management (e.g., Virtual Machine scheduling and management algorithms)
- Operational challenges, federative and interoperability aspects of private, hybrid and public IaaS systems
- Novel IaaS architectures, platforms and applications (e.g., incorporating IoT systems)
- Virtual machine/container image and virtual appliance storage management (e.g., caching, repositories, marketplaces)
- Virtual Machine migration techniques
- Security and Privacy aspects of data management in clouds and IoT systems
- Cloud Computing for scientific, compute and/or data intensive applications
- Performance evaluation, modeling, simulation and prediction of IaaS clouds and their relation to IoT (including cost and price models)
- Programming models, tools, orchestration techniques and workflows involving Cloud and IoT systems
- Cloud Computing deployment models
- Cloud, edge and fog storage and I/O
- Cloud services for the Internet of Things
- Scalability issues of IoT systems
- Emerging techniques in Edge and Fog Computing
- Autonomous control in Internet of Things, multi-clouds and software defined networks

Submission guidelines
Authors are required to submit original, unpublished research or overviews on infrastructure clouds and their applications. Submitted manuscripts should not exceed 8 pages in the Conference proceedings format (IEEEtran, double-column, 10pt). The special session applies double-bind review: the paper should not contain authors’ names and affiliations; in the reference list, references to the authors’ own work entries should be substituted with the string "omitted for blind review”.

Submission site:
Please note, as the first step of the submission procedure, authors must pick the cloud special session in order to be considered for inclusion within the session.

All accepted papers will be included in the same volume as the main conference's material, and they will be published by the Conference Publishing Services (CPS). 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 explore, CSDL, and for indexing among others, to DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.

Important dates
Paper submission: 30th Oct. 2018 (final extension, extended from 10th of Sep then from 5th of Oct)
Acceptance notification: 23rd Nov. 2018 (extended from 17th of Oct)
Camera ready due: 15th Dec. 2018 (extended from 12th of Nov)
Conference: 13th - 15th Feb. 2019
