                      CALL FOR PAPERS

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 18th Annual IEEE/ACM 
International Symposium in Cluster, Cloud, and Grid Computing (CCGrid 
2018) 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 2018, CCGrid 
will be held in Washington, DC, USA.
