Call for Papers:
The 16th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid
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 ColombiaÂ´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.
