PDP 2012 - Special Session on "Cloud Computing" - in Garching/Munich

20th EUROMICRO Conference on Parallel, Distributed and Network-based Processing

Leipniz Supercomputing Centre, Garching

February 15-17th, 2012
Special Session on "Cloud Computing"

Cloud computing technologies are raising significant interests. Cloud Computing and Infrastructure as a Service especially has emerged out of the development and widespread adoption of virtualization and Grid computing. The emergence of a large amount of web services at all major internet companies has also triggered great interest in new business processes and workflows being done in the cloud. The Cloud provides a high level of abstraction to the end user, one that provides on-demand services, a pay as you go model combined with elasticity. Cloud Computing covers a broad rage 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. The 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 challenges and opportunities offered by the development of Cloud Computing solutions themselves, as well as case studies in applications of Cloud Computing and Grid Computing. The general venue will be a good occasion to share, learn, and discuss the latest results in this field of research. The workshop program will include presentations of peer-reviewed papers. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Cloud Computing and Grid architectures
Cloud Computing platforms and applications
Cloud Computing for scientific applications
Cloud bridging
Cloud bursting
Virtualization technologies
Performance evaluation, modelling and prediction
Programming models and tools
Cloud computing for compute and/or data intensive applications
Workflows on the Cloud
CPU and GPU Clouds, Desktop Grids
Cloud Computing resource management
Cloud Computing deployment models
Cloud storage and I/O

Important dates

Deadline for paper submission: 15th August 2011
Acceptance notification: 17th October 2011
Camera ready paper due: 11st November 2011
Conference: February 15-17th, 2012
Submission guidelines

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 5000 words in length and 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. Proceedings will be published by IEEE CS. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present the paper at the Conference. Papers submitted for the workshops or special sessions must be submitted through the conference submission system with an indication of the name of the workshop/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. Organization
