The 20th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Internet
Computing (CCGrid 2020)
May 11-14, 2020, Melbourne, Australia
Call for Papers
Tremendous advances in processing, communication and systems/middle-ware
technologies are leading to new paradigms and platforms for computing,
ranging from computing Clusters to widely distributed Clouds and
emerging Internet computing paradigms such as Fog/Edge Computing for
Internet of Things (IoT)/Big Data applications. CCGrid is a series of
very successful conferences, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society
Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) and ACM (Association
for Computing Machinery), 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, workshops, tutorials, as well as the SCALE
challenge featuring live demonstrations and the ICFEC 2020 conference.
In 2020, CCGrid will return to Melbourne, Australia, to celebrate its
20th anniversary. CCGrid 2020 will have a special focus on three
important issues that are significantly influencing all aspects of
Cluster, Cloud, and Internet computing: Adaptive Elastic Computing,
Green Computing, and Cyber-Physical Computing. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:
Internet Computing Frontiers: Edge, Fog, Serverless, Lambda, Streaming,
etc. More decentralized approaches to cloud computing. Edge/fog/mist
computing, sensor data streaming and computation on the edges of the
network. Function as a Service (Faas), Backend as a Service (BaaS),
serverless computing, lambda computing.
Architecture, Networking, Data Centers: Service oriented architectures.
Utility computing models. IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, *aaS paradigms. Service
composition and orchestration. Micro-datacenter, cloudlet, edge, or fog
computing infrastructure. Virtualized hardware: GPUs, tensor processing
Storage and I/O Systems: Distributed storage, cloud storage, Storage as
a Service, data locality techniques for in-memory processing, storage in
Programming Models and Runtime Systems: Programming models, languages,
systems and tools/environments. Virtualization, containers, and
middleware technologies. Actors, agents, programming decentralized
Resource Management and Scheduling: Resource allocation algorithms,
profiling, modeling. Cluster, cloud, and internet computing scheduling
and meta-scheduling techniques.
Performance Modelling and Evaluation: Performance models. Monitoring and
evaluation tools. Analysis of system/application performance.
Cyber-Security and Privacy: Cloud security and trust. Access control.
Data privacy and integrity. Regulation.
Sustainable and Green Computing: Environment friendly computing
ecosystems. Hardware/software/application energy efficiency. Power,
cooling and thermal awareness.
Applications: Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, Cyber-Physical
Systems, etc. Applications to real and complex problems in science,
engineering, business and society. User studies. Experiences with
large-scale deployments systems and data science applications.
Distributed AI/Machine Learning on the cloud. Data streaming analytics
for intelligent transportation systems.
