Call for Papers:

The 16th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing - CCGRID2016

May 16-19, 2016. Cartagena, COLOMBIA, South America. http//ccgrid2016.uniandes.edu.co

Advances in architectures, networks, systems and middleware technologies are leading to 
new concepts and platforms for computing, ranging from Clusters and Grids to Clouds and 
Datacenters. The 16th Annual IEEE/ACM International Symposium in Cluster, Cloud, and 
Grid Computing (CCGrid 2016) is a forum bringing together international researchers, 
developers, and practitioners to present leading research activities and results on a 
broad range of topics related to these concepts, platforms, and their applications. 
The conference features keynotes, technical presentations, workshops, and posters, 
as well as the Doctoral Symposium and the SCALE challenge featuring live demonstrations. 

In 2016, CCGRID will come to Colombia, South America, for the first time, and it will 
be held in Cartagena, a historical, picturesque modern port city on Colombia´s Caribbean
Coast, which was designated on 1984 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The main conference
will be held on May 17-19, 2016, with affiliated workshops taking place on May 16, 2016.

All papers presented at the main conference, workshops, poster session (for proceedings 
posters), doctoral symposium, and SCALE challenge of IEEE/ACM CCGrid 2016 will be 
submitted to IEEE Xplore for publication and EI indexing.
