    • Edge, Fog, Serverless, Lambda, Streaming, etc.
  • Architecture, Networking, Data Centers
    • Service oriented architectures, (I/P)aaS paradigms, Virtualized hardware (GPUs, TPUs, FPGAs), etc.
  • 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

Submission and Review Process

The poster submission will be through the link provided in the EasyChair (
Each research poster will be taken through a comprehensive peer review process by an internationally recognized group of experts in the field. Posters will be evaluated along the metrics of a) Quality of Presentation; b) Novelty / Originality; c) Relation to State of the Art; d) Technical Strength; e) Significance of Work; and f) Relevance to Conference. Every effort will be made to ensure that each poster receives multiple reviews.
Posters can be submitted through EasyChair in one of two ways:
  • Proceedings Published Posters
    • Participants submitting proceedings published posters are required to submit 1) a short paper upto four pages describing the poster content, research, relevance and importance to the cluster, grid and cloud computing community and 2) the draft of the actual poster to be presented as a PDF file. If accepted, this four page short paper will be published in the proceedings of the conference.
      Important dates:
