10th Workshop on Scientific Cloud Computing

***  ScienceCloud 2019  ***

Workshop Date: June 25, 2019

Held in conjunction with ACM HPDC 2019, Phoenix, Arizona, USA

(Conference dates: June 24-28, 2019)


The 10th workshop on Scientific Cloud Computing (ScienceCloud) will
provide the scientific community a dedicated forum for discussing new
research, development, and deployment efforts in running scientific
computing workloads on Cloud Computing infrastructures. The
ScienceCloud workshop will focus on the use of cloud-based
technologies to meet new compute-intensive and data-intensive
scientific challenges that are not well served by the current
supercomputers, grids, and HPC clusters. This workshop will encourage
interaction and cross-pollination between those developing
applications, algorithms, software, hardware and networking,
emphasizing scientific computing for cloud platforms. The workshop
will be an excellent place to help the community define the current
state, determine future goals, and discuss promising technologies and

The ScienceCloud workshop, to be held as a full-day meeting at ACM
HPDC 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, solicits high-quality 8-page and
4-page publications describing original research in the following


- Scientific application cases studies on cloud infrastructures
- Performance evaluation of Cloud environments and technologies
- Fault tolerance and reliability in cloud systems
- Data-intensive workloads and tools in clouds
- Use of programming models (e.g. Spark, Map-Reduce) and their
implementations in cloud settings
- Storage cloud architectures in cloud settings
- I/O and Big Data management in the cloud
- Workflow and resource management in the cloud
- Use of cloud technologies (e.g., NoSQL databases) for scientific applications
- Data streaming and dynamic applications in the cloud
- Heterogeneous resources (network, storage, compute) and edge/fog
- Many-Task Computing in the cloud
- Application of cloud concepts in HPC environments or vice versa
- High performance parallel file systems in virtual environments
- Virtualized high performance I/O network interconnects
- Virtualization, containers, and dynamic provisioning
- Distributed Operating Systems in cloud settings
- Many-core computing and accelerators (e.g. GPUs, MIC) in the cloud
- Analysis of management complexity, cost, variability, and
reproducibility of cloud and IoT environments
- Stream processing in the cloud
- Stream data management for scientific applications in the cloud
- Edge, Fog and hybrid Cloud - Edge / Fog computing

Authors are invited to submit papers describing unpublished, original
research. All submitted manuscripts should be formatted using the ACM
Master Template with sigconf format (please be sure to use the current
version). All necessary documentation can be found at:
https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template. The maximum
lengths are 8 and 4 pages (including all text, figures, and
references). All papers must be in English. We use single-blind
reviewing process, so please keep the authors names, publications,
etc., in the text. Papers will be peer-reviewed, and accepted papers
will be published in the workshop proceedings as part of the ACM
Digital Library.
