			*** Call for Papers ***					
	 4th Workshop on Scientific Cloud Computing (ScienceCloud) 2013
      Co-located with ACM HPDC 2013, New York City, NY, USA -- June 17th, 2013

	      *** Deadline Extension to February 25th, 2013 ***

The 4th workshop on Scientific Cloud Computing (ScienceCloud) will provide the
scientific community a dedicated forum for discussing new research, development,
and deployment efforts in running these kinds of scientific computing workloads
on Cloud Computing infrastructures. The ScienceCloud workshop will focus on the
use of cloud-based technologies to meet new compute-intensive and data-
intensive scientific challenges that are not well served by the current
supercomputers, grids and HPC clusters. This workshop encourages interaction and
cross-pollination between those developing applications, algorithms, software,
hardware and networking, emphasizing scientific computing for such cloud
platforms. We believe the workshop will be an excellent place to help the
community define the current state, determine future goals, and define
architectures and services for future science clouds.

We invite the submission of original work that is related to the topics below.
The papers can be either short (4 pages) position papers, or long (8 pages)
research papers. Topics of interest include (in the context of Cloud Computing):
- Scientific application cases studies on Cloud infrastructure
- Performance evaluation of Cloud environments and technologies
- Fault tolerance and reliability in cloud systems
- Data-intensive workloads and tools on Clouds
- Use of programming models such as Map-Reduce and its implementations
- Storage cloud architectures
- I/O and Data management in the Cloud
- Workflow and resource management in the Cloud
- Use of cloud technologies (e.g., NoSQL databases) for scientific applications
- Data streaming and dynamic applications on Clouds
- Dynamic resource provisioning
- Many-Task Computing in the Cloud
- Application of cloud concepts in HPC environments or vice versa
- High performance parallel file systems in virtual environments
- Virtualized high performance I/O network interconnects
- Virtualization
- Distributed Operating Systems
- Many-core computing and accelerators (e.g. GPUs, MIC) in the Cloud
- Cloud security

- Paper submission: February 25th, 2013 (11:59PM PST)
- Acceptance notification: March 18th, 2013
- Final papers due: April 15th, 2013

Authors are invited to submit papers with unpublished, original work of not
more than 8 pages of double column text using single spaced 10 point size on
8.5 x 11 inch pages (including all text, figures, and references), as per ACM
8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines (document templates can be found at
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). A 250 word abstract
and the final paper in PDF format must be submitted online at
https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/ScienceCloud2013/ before the deadline of
February 25th, 2013 at 11:59PM PST. Papers will be peer-reviewed, and accepted
papers will be published in the workshop proceedings as part of the ACM digital
library. Notifications of the paper decisions will be sent out by March 18th,
2013. Selected excellent work will be invited to submit extended versions of
the workshop paper to a special issue journal.  Submission implies the
willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.
