Call for Papers:

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

May 16-19, 2016. Cartagena, COLOMBIA, South America. 

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 Cost, 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.
