May 11-14, 2020, Melbourne, Victoria, 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, 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 units, FPGAs.
  • Storage and I/O Systems
    Distributed storage, cloud storage, Storage as a Service, data locality techniques for in-memory processing, storage in the edge.
  • Programming Models and Runtime Systems
    Programming models, languages, systems and tools/environments. Virtualization, containers, and middleware technologies. Actors, agents, programming decentralized computing systems.
  • Resource Management and Scheduling
    Resource allocation algorithms, profiling, modeling. Cluster, cloud, and internet computing scheduling and meta-scheduling techniques.
  • Performance Modelling and Evaluation
