      The 4th International Workshop on Scalable Computing
                   For Real-Time Big Data Applications

                   held in conjunction with CCGrid'19:
      The 9th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster,
                         Cloud and Grid Computing

              Lacarna, Cyprus - May 14-17, 2019

SCRAMBL is a dedicated workshop to present and discuss leading research
results, use cases, innovative ideas, challenges, and opportunities that
arise from adopting real-time big data analytics at large scale.  System-level
researchers and practitioners active in the area of high performance computing,
cloud computing and distributed systems in general will have an opportunity to
understand what patterns, use cases and challenges arise at application level
in the context of real-time big data analytics, which is of consequence in the
design of the infrastructure and runtime systems. In turn, application-level
researchers will have an opportunity to learn more about new low-level
technologies and runtime system that facilitate easier design of algorithms,
workflows and parallelization. Finally, an another important category are the
use case providers, be they industrial, government or academia, which will
have the opportunity to learn about the options and feasibility of implementing
their desired real-time big data analytics solution in practice.

SCRAMBL, now at it's fourth edition is organized in conjunction with
CCGrid, which has traveled the world over, and this year will be held
in May in Lacarna, Cyprus. Larnaca is known for its palm-tree seafront
and has a hrilling mix of antique and modern  cultures that is reflected in
their environment, warm people and monuments, such as the Church of Saint
Lazarus, Hala Sultan Tekke, Kamares Aqueduct, and Larnaca Castle. It is built
on the ruins of ancient Citium, which was the birthplace of Stoic philosopher


Paper submission deadline: 25 February 2019

Papers should be submitted through Easychair by using the following link:

We welcome submissions in the form of:
  * Outrageous ideas (up to 2 pages)
  * Position papers (short papers up to 6 pages)
  * Real-world use cases papers (up to 10 pages)
  * Research papers (up to 10 pages)

Papers must be formatted according to the 2-column IEEE format used by
CCGrid: http://cloud.siat.ac.cn/ccgrid2015/files/IEEECS_confs_LaTeX.zip.
They will be part of the proceedings and will be submitted to IEEE
Xplore for publication and EI indexing.  Submitted papers must
represent original and unpublished work, that is not currently under
review. All manuscripts will be evaluated according to their
significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, quality
of presentation, and relevance to the workshop.  At least one author
of each accepted paper is expected to attend the workshop.
