Cloud Computing and Scientific Applications, 3rd International Workshop 
(CCSA 2013) 


Berlin, Germany
December 2-5, 2013 

held in conjunction with the 
11th International Conference on Service Oriented Computing (ICSOC 2013)  

++ Journal Special Issue with The Computer Journal, Oxford University Press ++

CCSA workshop has been formed to promote research and development
activities focused on enabling and scaling scientific applications using
distributed computing paradigms, such as cluster, Grid, and Cloud
Computing. With the rapid emergence of virtualized environments for
accessing software systems and solutions, the volume of users and their
data are growing exponentially. According to the IDC, by 2020, when the
ICT industry reaches $5 billion - $1.7 billion larger than it is today -
at least 80% of the industry's growth will driven by 3rd platform
technologies, such as cloud services and big data analytics.

Existing computing infrastructure, software system designs, and use
cases will have to take into account the enormity in volume of requests,
size of data, computing load, locality and type of users, and every
growing needs of all applications.

Cloud computing promises reliable services delivered through
next-generation data centers that are built on compute and storage
virtualization technologies. Users will be able to access applications
and data from a Cloud anywhere in the world on demand. In other words,
the Cloud appears to be a single point of access for all the computing
needs of users. The users are assured that the Cloud infrastructure is
robust and will always be available at any time.

To address the growing needs of both applications and Cloud computing
paradigm, CCSA brings together researchers and practitioners from around
the world to share their experiences, to focus on modeling, executing,
and monitoring scientific applications on Clouds.

In this workshop, we are interested in receiving innovative work on
enabling and scaling computing systems to support the execution of
scientific applications. The target audience include researchers and
industry practitioners who are interested in distributed systems,
particularly focusing on scaling of applications using Cloud computing.

All papers must be submitted electronically and in PDF format through 
EasyChair system: 


The material presented should be original and not published or under
submission elsewhere. Authors should submit full papers of up to 6
pages, strictly following the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings
Manuscript style (available at
using two-column, single-space format, with 10-point font size.
Figures and references must be included in the 6 pages. Oversized
papers will be automatically rejected by the committee. At least
one of the authors of each accepted paper must register early to
attend the conference, in order for the paper to appear in the
conference proceedings.

Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research
that is not currently under review for any other conference
or journal. Papers not following these guidelines will be
rejected without review and further action may be taken,
including (but not limited to) notifications sent to the
heads of the institutions of the authors and sponsors of the
conference. Submissions received after the due date,
exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may
also not be considered. The proceedings will be published and
will be made online through the IEEE Xplore.

CCSA is sponsoring a Best Paper Award to one paper presented at 
the workshop. A certificate and a cash prize will be
awarded to one author selected as the best paper award winner.

Selected top quality papers will be invited to submit their revised 
version to a special issue of The Computer Journal, Oxford University Press.
