International Symposium on Cloud Computing and Services for
High Performance Computing Systems
(InterCloud-HPC 2013)


As part of
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation
(HPCS 2013)
http://hpcs2013.cisedu.info or  http://cisedu.us/rp/hpcs13

July 1 – July 5, 2013
Helsinki, Finland

Extended Submission Deadline: March 22, 2013

Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or


“Cloud” is a common metaphor for an Internet accessible infrastructure,
hiding most of the implementation and deployment details of the system from
users.  Cloud computing delivers IT-related capabilities as services over
the Internet, allowing resources be managed and accessed in an Internet
scale.  Cloud computing has been envisaged to be one of the main-stream
powering technologies of future IT systems.

This symposium focuses on techniques, experiences, applications, and
lessons learned for interoperable services in the cloud, particularly in
the realms of high performance computing.  For instance, HPC may be used
for the construction of mathematical models and numerical solutions and
techniques for solving scientific, socio-scientific and engineering
problems.  It often requires a huge number of computing and storage
resources to perform large-scale analyses and experiments.  Users could get
access to their own virtualized HPC cluster in a self-service, dynamically
scalable and fully configurable environment.  Cloud computing can address
many of the aforementioned concerns.  Such a computing paradigm shift
provides a flexible high performance computing environment.

The symposium aims at providing a forum to bring together researchers and
scientists to share and exchange cloud computing related research,
technologies, experiences, and lessons for building various types clouds
with interoperability and coordination capabilities in a high performance
and high availability setting.

The Symposium topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

* Middleware Frameworks
* Cloud Architectures
* Cloud Interoperability and Federation Protocols
* Programming Models for HPC Clouds
* Semantic Web Services Definitions for Clouds
* Directory of Services for Clouds
* Management of Interoperability and Federation for Clouds
* Interoperable and Federated Cloud Security and Trust
* Cloud Interoperability and Federation Governance and Regulatory
* HPC Cloud-based Services
* QoS/SLA in Interoperable and Federated Clouds
* Converged Implementations of Clouds and Grids
* Geo-balancing in Interoperable and Federated Clouds
* Common Programming Models across Clouds
* Cloud Broker, Exchange, Arbitrage architectures
* Semantic Web for Clouds
* Cloud Protocols
* Virtualization Technologies and Techniques
* Virtualization Techniques for HPC GPU/Multicore Systems
* Management of Clouds
* Performance Evaluation and Monitoring of HPC Clouds
* Scalable Fault Resilience Techniques for HPC Clouds
* Cloud Application
* Experiences and Lessons


You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above
and other topics related to Cloud Computing and Services for High
Performance Computing Systems.  Submitted papers must not have been
published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere.  For Regular papers,
please  submit  a PDF copy  of your full manuscript,  not to exceed  8
double-column  IEEE formatted pages, and include up to 6 keywords and an
abstract of no more than 400 words.  Additional pages will be charged
 additional  fee.   Submission  should  include  a cover  page  with
 authors'  names,  affiliation  addresses,  fax numbers, phone numbers, and
all authors email addresses.   Please, indicate clearly the corresponding
 author(s).   Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and poster
(please refer to  http://hpcs2013.cisedu.info/home/posters   for posters
submission details)  will also be accepted.   Please specify the type of
submission you have.  Please include page numbers on all preliminary
submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the symposium paper submission
site at  https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=intercloudhpc2013 .
Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission.

Only PDF files will be accepted, sent by email to the symposium organizers.
 Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews.  Papers will be
selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical
clarity and presentation.  Submission implies the willingness of at least
one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted.  At
least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and
attend the HPCS 2013 conference to present the paper at the symposium.

Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings.
 Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted
on the HPCS 2013 Conference web site.  It is our intent to have the
proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at
the time of the conference.  The proceedings is projected to be included in
the IEEE Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services

If you have any questions about paper submission or the symposium, please
contact the organizers.
