ALGOCLOUD 2022
7th International Symposium on Algorithmic Aspects of Cloud Computing

September 5-6, 2022 - part of ALGO 2022

https://algo2022.eu/algocloud/

Submission deadline: 27 June 2022, 23:59 GMT

SCOPE
-----
ALGOCLOUD is an annual international symposium aiming to tackle the diverse new topics in the
emerging area of algorithmic aspects of computing and data management in modern cloud-based 
systems interpreted broadly so as to include edge- and fog-based systems, cloudlets, cloud 
micro-services, virtualization environments, decentralized systems, as well as dynamic networks.

ALGOCLOUD aims at bringing together researchers, students, and practitioners to present research 
activities and results on topics related to algorithmic, design, and development aspects of 
modern cloud-based systems. ALGOCLOUD 2022 is co-located with ALGO 2022, a leading international 
event of researchers working on algorithms and their engineering. 

ALGOCLOUD welcomes submissions on all theoretical, design, and implementation aspects of modern 
cloud-based systems. ALGOCLOUD is particularly interested in novel algorithms in the context of 
cloud computing, cloud architectures, as well as experimental work that evaluates contemporary 
cloud approaches and pertinent applications. ALGOCLOUD also welcomes demonstration manuscripts, 
which discuss successful system developments, as well as experience/use-case articles and high-
quality survey papers. Contributions may span a wide range of algorithms for modeling, practices 
for building and techniques for evaluating operations and services in a variety of systems, 
including but not limited to, virtualized infrastructures, cloud computing platforms, edge 
computing platforms, fog computing platforms, datacenters, cloud-storage options, cloud data 
management, non-traditional key-value stores on the cloud, HPC architectures, decentralized 
systems, as well as dynamic networks.

Submissions should focus on aspects of cloud-based systems and their algorithms, including (but 
not limited to) the following areas:

 * Analysis of Algorithms and Data Structures
 * Algorithms for Decentralized Systems
 * Algorithms for Dynamic Networks
 * Game-theoretic Approaches for Cloud Computing
 * IoT and Cloud Computing
 * Resource Management and Scheduling
 * Data Center and Infrastructure Management
 * Privacy, Security and Anonymization
 * Cloud-based Applications
 * Virtualization and Containers
 * Performance Models
 * Cloud deployment tools and their analysis
 * Novel programming models
 * Storage management
 * Fog and Edge Computing
 * Economic models and Pricing
 * Energy and Power Management
 * Big Data and the Cloud
 * Network and graph analysis
 * Network Management and Techniques
 * Caching and Load Balancing
 * Machine Learning for Cloud Computing & Systems
 * Cloud Computing & Systems for Machine Learning

IMPORTANT DATES
---------------
* Submission deadline: Monday, June 27, 2022, 23:59 GMT
* Notification of acceptance: Wednesday, July 27, 2022
* Camera-ready preparation deadline: October 31, 2022

SUBMISSION
----------
Submissions must be in the form of a single PDF file prepared using Springer's LNCS style file 
https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs. Proceedings will be published by Springer.

ALGOCLOUD 2022 asks for the following types of submissions:

[A. REGULAR PAPERS] Authors are invited to submit high-quality manuscripts reporting original 
unpublished research in the topics related to the symposium. A regular paper submission should 
clearly motivate the importance of the problem being addressed, discuss prior work and its 
relationship to the paper, explicitly and precisely state the paperĒs key contributions, and 
outline the key technical ideas and methods used to achieve the main results. A regular paper 
submission should not exceed 12 pages, including title page and abstract but excluding references
and an optional appendix. Authors should include all necessary details in their submission so that 
the Technical Program Committee (TPC) can judge correctness, importance and originality of their 
work. Any material (e.g., proofs or experimental results) omitted (from the main part of 12 pages)
due to space limitations can be put into the optional appendix, which will be read at the TPC's 
discretion. Regular papers will be allotted up to 20 pages in the proceedings.

[B. SHORT PAPERS] A short paper submission may present work-in-progress on a specific topic, or 
work appeared elsewhere but is worth publicizing it in the symposium, or a demonstration of a 
system or library, or an experience/use-case paper, or a vision paper. Authors should clearly 
motivate the importance of their contribution, discuss prior work and its relationship to the 
paper, and in general provide sufficient details in their submission so that the TPC can judge the 
quality and importance of their work. A short paper submission should be at least 2 and at most 8
pages. Short papers will be allotted up to 8 pages in the proceedings.

[C. SURVEY PAPERS] A survey paper submission concerns the write-up of a high-quality survey paper 
on an emerging hot topic. Authors are asked to submit a proposal between 5 and 10 pages, that
clearly motivates the importance of the topic, and contains the structure of the survey paper 
along with the most important references that will be critically reviewed and presented. If the 
proposal is accepted, then authors will be given sufficient time (until end of October 2021) to 
prepare the full version of their survey paper that needs to pass a quality control check by the 
TPC, in order to be finally accepted and appear in the proceedings. Survey papers will be allotted 
up to 40 pages in the proceedings.

All papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submission system at:

Submissions website: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=algocloud2022

By submitting a paper the authors acknowledge that in case of acceptance at least one of the 
authors must register at ALGO/ALGOCLOUD 2022 and present the paper (this holds for all types of 
papers, including accepted survey proposals). Authors should consult SpringerĒs authorsĒ 
instructions and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the 
preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers.
In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of 
that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the 
copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been 
sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made. SpringerĒs 
proceedings LaTeX templates are available in Overleaf. Accepted papers will be included in the 
post-proceedings published by Springer in its Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

AWARDS
------
Awards will be given to the best regular paper and the best student regular paper. A regular paper 
is eligible for the best student paper award if at least one of the authors is a full-time student 
(Bachelor, Master, or Ph.D.) at the time of submission and the student(s) must have made a major 
contribution to the paper. The TPC can decide to decline or to split the awards. Awards are 
sponsored by Springer.
