IEEE ScalCom 2017
San Francisco, CA, USA
4-8 August 2017

Paper submission: March 24, 2017 (extended)

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)  provides a forum for researchers willing to present their 
original work on scalable parallel and distributed computing. ScalCom offers a 
unique opportunity to exchange ideas at the highest technical level related to 
communication networks, performance analysis, 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 systems and heterogeneous 
computing. We particularly encourage submissions on topics of emerging interest
in the research and development communities.

The topics of the 17th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and 
Communications include, but are not limited to:

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

Extreme scale,  multi-core, GPU, accelerators and novel architectures for Scalability-Rethinking:
parallel programming models and tools
GPU, MIC, and FPGA based parallel systems, heterogeneous platforms
Extreme scale systems and applications
peta-scale and exa-scale workloads
high-performance and high-throughput computing
fault-tolerance in large scale applications
near-data processing and data-centric approaches.

Modelling and Simulation of Large Complex Systems:
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.

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