CCGrid 2012 to issue Call for Papers
11 Oct 2011 Melbourne -
The 12th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Grid and Cloud Computing - CCGrid 2012 - will be held May 13-16, 2012 in Ottawa, Canada. The deadline for paper submission is November 25, 2011.
Rapid advances in processing, communication and systems/middleware technologies are leading to new paradigms and platforms for computing, ranging from computing Clusters to widely distributed Grid and
emerging Clouds. CCGrid is a series of very successful conferences, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) and ACM, with the overarching goal of bringing
together international researchers, developers, and users and to provide an international forum to present leading research activities and results on a broad range of topics related to these platforms and paradigms and their applications. The conference features keynotes, technical presentations, posters and research demos, workshops, tutorials, as well as the SCALE challenges featuring live demonstrations.
In 2012, CCGrid will come to Canada for the first time and will be held in Ottawa, the capital city. CCGrid 2012 will have a focus on important and immediate issues that are significantly influencing all aspects of cluster, Cloud and Grid computing.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Applications and Experiences: Applications to real and complex problems in science, engineering, business and society; User studies; Experiences with large-scale deployments systems or applications.
- Architecture: System architectures, Design and deployment.
- Autonomic Computing and Cyberinfrastructure: Self managed behaviour, models and technologies; Autonomic paradigms and approaches (control-based, bio-inspired, emergent, etc.); Bio-inspired approaches to management; SLA definition and enforcement.
- Performance Modelling and Evaluation: Performance models; Monitoring and evaluation tools, Analysis of system/application performance; Benchmarks and testbeds.
- Programming Models, Systems, and Fault-Tolerant Computing: Programming models for cluster, Clouds and Grid computing; fault tolerant infrastructure and algorithms; systems software to enable efficient computing.
- Multicore and Accelerator-based Computing: Software and application techniques to utilize multicore architectures and accelerators/heterogeneous computing systems.
- Scheduling and Resource Management: Techniques to schedule jobs and resources on clusters, Clouds and Grid computing platforms.
- Cloud Computing: Cloud architectures; Software tools and techniques for Clouds.
