**** New EXTENDED paper submission HARD deadline: APRIL 8th, 2016 ****

Parallel and distributed computing have undergone impressive change over recent 
years. The whole hardware industry shifted to both multicore and mobile 
platforms expanding the arena of communicating devices to an unprecedented 
scale. Communication networks  have known great developments and many new
applications in the same time. Scalability has rapidly become one of the central
aspect of the disciplines. It is of paramount importance to review and assess 
these new developments in comparison with recent research achievements in the 
well-established areas of scalable computing and communications, from industry 
and the scientific community. 
The 16th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and Communications 
(ScalCom 2016) will provide a forum for the presentation of these and other issues 
through original research presentations and will facilitate the exchange of 
knowledge and new ideas at the highest technical level.

We invite submissions of high-quality research papers describing fully developed
results or on-going foundational and applied work relating to all aspects of
scalable computing and communications. The program committee will interpret it 
very broadly; everything from engineering principles to practical experiences on
different levels of a parallel and distributed system. We particularly encourage
submissions on topics of emerging interest in the research and development

+ Cloud & fog computing: 
     - X as a Service, where X includes Backend, Business Process, Database, 
       Information, Infrastructure, Network, Platform, Security,
       Software, and Storage
     - performance, dependability, and service level agreements
     - cloud programming models and tools
     - fog computing algorithms and infrastructures

+ GPU, accelerators and novel architectures for Scalability-Rethinking:
     - parallel programming models
     - embedded parallel and distributed systems
     - heterogenous platforms 
     - GPU, MIC, and FPGA based parallel systems
     - parallel I/O
     - memory organisation

+ Modelling and Simulation of Large Complex Systems
     - complex systems modelling and simulation
     - cellular automata, genetic algorithms, neural networks,
       swarm Intelligence implementations
     - integrated approach to optimization and simulation
     - high-performance Software developed to solve science (e.g., biological, 
       physical, and social), engineering, medicine, and humanities problems

+ Extreme scale systems and applications
     - peta-scale and exa-scale workloads
     - high-performance and high-throughput computing
     - run-time systems for extreme scale applications
     - fault-tolerance in large scale applications
     - near-data processing and data-centric approaches

+ Mobile, wireless and pervasive computing 
     - queueing theory
     - design and performance analysis of communication networks
     - communication protocols
     - distributed applications with emphasis on scalability
     - distributed applications deployment
     - internet of things
     - pervasive computing
     - distributed robotics
     - energy
     - convergence of communication and computing
