====================== IEEE ScalCom 2017 ===========================

The 17th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and 

August 4-8, 2017, San Francisco, USA


Paper submission deadline: March 10, 2016

Workshop Proposal Due: January 30, 2017


Nowadays, parallel architectures are ubiquitous and the arena of computing
and communicating devices is quickly reaching an unprecedented scale. The
trend is to keep increasing both the number of cores in a single device as
well as the number of communicating devices. In this massively parallel and
heterogeneous context, the need for scalable computing is everywhere and
scalability is rapidly becoming a central aspect of computing.
   The 17th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and
Communications (ScalCom 2017) will provide a forum for researchers willing
to present their original work on scalable parallel and distributed 
ScalCom 2017 will offer a unique opportunity to exchange ideas at the 
technical level related to communication networks, performance analysis and
distributed applications with particular emphasis on scalability.
   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 including High Performance Computing (HPC), massively parallel 
and heterogeneous computing. We particularly encourage submissions on 
of emerging interest in the research and development communities.
   The topics of the 17th IEEE International Conference on Scalable 
and Communications include, but are not limited to:
