Call for Papers

for the
special session at the
27th Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and 
network-based Processing

Pavia, Italy
Conference dates: 13-15th February, 2019.


Cloud Computing covers a broad range of distributed computing principles 
from infrastructure (e.g distributed storage, reconfigurable networks) 
to new programming platforms (e.g MS Azure, Google App Engine), and 
internet-based applications. Particularly, Infrastructure as a Service 
(IaaS) Cloud systems - such as Amazon EC2, Rackspace or Google Compute 
Engine - allow the dynamic creation, destruction and management of 
virtual machines (VMs) as part of virtual computing infrastructures. 
IaaS Clouds provide a high-level of abstraction to the end user, one 
that allows the creation of on-demand services through a pay as you go 
infrastructure combined with elasticity. The increasingly large range of 
choices and availability of IaaS toolkits has also allowed creation of 
cloud solutions and frameworks even suitable for private deployment and 
practical IaaS use on smaller scales. This special session on Cloud 
Computing is intended to be a forum for the exchange of ideas and 
experiences on the use of Cloud Computing technologies and applications 
with compute and data intensive workloads. The special session also aims 
at presenting the challenges and opportunities offered by the 
development of open-source Cloud Computing solutions - such as OpenStack 
or OpenNebula - themselves, as well as case studies in applications of 
Cloud Computing. With the rapid evolution and proliferation of Internet 
of Things systems, we this session also aims to provide a forum for case 
studies on integrated use of clouds and IoT systems. The general venue 
will be a good occasion to share, learn, and discuss the latest results 
in this field of research. The special session program will include 
presentations of peer-reviewed papers.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Virtualization and container technologies and their effects on IaaS 
- Incorporating beyond-CPU virtualization (e.g., I/O, GPU) aspects to 
cloud infrastructures
- Cloud Computing resource management (e.g., Virtual Machine scheduling 
and management algorithms)
- Operational challenges, federative and interoperability aspects of 
private, hybrid and public IaaS systems
- Novel IaaS architectures, platforms and applications (e.g., 
incorporating IoT systems)
- Virtual machine/container image and virtual appliance storage 
management (e.g., caching, repositories, marketplaces)
- Virtual Machine migration techniques
- Security and Privacy aspects of data management in clouds and IoT systems
- Cloud Computing for scientific, compute and/or data intensive 
- Performance evaluation, modeling, simulation and prediction of IaaS 
clouds and their relation to IoT (including cost and price models)
- Programming models, tools, orchestration techniques and workflows 
involving Cloud and IoT systems
- Cloud Computing deployment models
- Cloud, edge and fog storage and I/O
- Cloud services for the Internet of Things
- Scalability issues of IoT systems
- Emerging techniques in Edge and Fog Computing
- Autonomous control in Internet of Things, multi-clouds and software 
defined networks

Submission guidelines
Authors are required to submit original, unpublished research or 
overviews on infrastructure clouds and their applications. Submitted 
manuscripts should not exceed 8 pages in the Conference proceedings 
format (IEEEtran, double-column, 10pt). The special session applies 
double-bind review: the paper should not contain authors’ names and 
affiliations; in the reference list, references to the authors’ own work 
entries should be substituted with the string "omitted for blind review”.

Submission site: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pdp2019
Please note, as the first step of the submission procedure, authors must 
pick the cloud special session in order to be considered for inclusion 
within the session.

All accepted papers will be included in the same volume as the main 
conference's material, and they will be published by the Conference 
Publishing Services (CPS). The Final Paper Preparation and Submission 
Instructions will be published after the notification of acceptance. 
Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their 
papers at the Conference. Conference proceedings will be submitted to 
IEEE explore, CSDL, and for indexing among others, to DBLP, Scopus 
ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.

Important dates
Paper submission: 5th Oct. 2018 (extended from 10th of Sep)
Acceptance notification: 15th Nov. 2018 (extended from 17th of Oct)
Camera ready due: 15th Dec. 2018 (extended from 12th of Nov)
Conference: 13th - 15th Feb. 2019
