Call for Papers

for the
special session at the
28th Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and network-based Processing

Vasteras, Sweden
Conference dates: 11-13th March, 2020.


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 Appe 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, this session also aims to provide a forum for case studies on integrated use of clouds, edge and fog systems in support of IoT scenarios. 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)
- 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, Edge and Fog Computing deployment models
- Cloud, Edge and Fog storage and I/O
- Cloud, Edge and Fog services for the Internet of Things
- Scalability issues of IoT systems
- Autonomous control in Internet of Things, multi-clouds and software defined networks

Submission guidelines
Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in length (and in the IEEE Conference proceedings format – IEEEtran, double column, 10pt) including a 150-200 word abstract. To facilitate an anonymous reviewing process, the first page of the paper should contain only the title and abstract (i.e., no author names and affiliations should be included) and reference entries to the author’s own work should be substituted with the string "omitted for blind review".

Papers submitted for the special session must be submitted through the conference submission system with an indication of the name of the special session. Papers must adhere to the formatting rules of the conference and will undergo the same review process as other papers submitted to the conference.

Proceedings will be published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS) in the same volume as the main conference proceedings. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present the paper at the Conference. Conference proceedings will be submitted to IEEE explore, CDSL, and for indexing among others, to DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.

Important dates
Paper submission: 15th Sept 2019 (extended from 25th Aug. 2019)
Acceptance notification: 15th Oct. 2019
