======================= IEEE ScalCom 2018 =======================

The 18th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and Communications

October 8-12, 2018, Guangzhou, China


Towards Scalable Computing Systems and Networks

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 18th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and Communications 
(ScalCom 2018) will provide a forum for researchers willing to present their 
original work on scalable parallel and distributed computing. ScalCom 2018 will 
offer a unique opportunity to exchange ideas at the highest 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 parallelsystems and heterogeneous computing. We 
particularly encourage submissions on topics of emerging interest in the 
research and development communities.

The topics of the 18th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and 
Communications include, but are not limited to:

Cloud and 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

Tools for Big Data
- statistical data mining
- extreme big data
- Hadoop
- convergence of IoT, cloud and big data

Extreme Scale, Multicore, GPU Accelerators and Novel Architectures for 
- parallel programming models and tools
- GPU, MIC, and FPGA based parallel systems, heterogenous 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 
- integrated approach to optimization and simulation
- high-performance software developed to solve sciences (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
- communication protocols of IoT
- distributed applications with emphasis on scalability, distributed 
applications deployment
- pervasive computing, distributed robotics
- convergence of communication and computing

Accepted conference papers will be published by IEEE (IEEE-DL and EI indexed) in 
the conference proceedings. Best paper awards will be presented to high quality 
papers for the Congress and each of the co-located conferences.

Paper Submission Deadline: May 15, 2018 (Extended Firm Deadline)
Author Notification Date: June 25, 2018
Camera-ready Deadline: August 8, 2018

A submission is limited to 8 pages for a main conference paper, 6 pages for a 
workshop or special session paper, and 2 pages for a poster or demo paper in the 
IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Format with Portable Document Format (.pdf). A 
submission can have at most 2 additional pages with the pages overlength charge 
if accepted. Please submit at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=scalcom2018

Accepted conference papers will be published by IEEE CPS (IEEE-DL and EI 
indexed). At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and 
present their work at the conference; otherwise the paper will not be included 
in the proceedings. Best Paper Awards will be presented to high quality papers. 
Selected papers will be recommended to special issues. More details can be found
