==============  IEEE ScalCom 2019 CFP  ===============

*The 19th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and
Communications *http://www.smart-world.org/2019/scalcom/

*Leicester, UK, 19-23 August 2019*

*Sponsored by *

IEEE and IEEE Computational Intelligence Society


*Towards Scalable Computing Systems and Networks*

Scalability is one of the key evaluation criteria of computing systems. In
particular, scalability is essential in HPC systems. High scalability
represents a kind of elasticity, which can guarantee high throughput, small
delay and high performance. Additionally, with the need to process the data
deluge and to solve complex large scale problems, new architectures using
computing accelerator, e.g., Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) and Many
Integrated Core (MIC) have emerged. Improvements to these architectures are
still needed in order to use them in large scale heterogeneous systems.
Similarly, new parallel algorithms, software, and tools are needed to
improve scalability.

The 19th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and
Communications (ScalCom 2019) will provide a forum for researchers to
present their original work on scalable parallel and distributed computing.
This conference will also 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


* Cloud and Fog Computing (e.g. Cloud programming models and tools; Fog and
Edge computing algorithms and infrastructures)

* Extreme Scale, Multicore, GPU Accelerators and Novel Architectures for
Scalability-Rethinking (e.g. Parallel programming models and tools; GPU,
MIC, and FPGA based parallel systems and heterogeneous platforms;
Performance modeling and evaluation of Parallel Algorithms; Extreme scale
systems and applications/workloads; High-performance and high-throughput
computing; Fault-tolerance in large scale applications; Near-data
processing and data-centric approaches).

* Tools for Big Data (e.g. New data analytics tools for extreme big data;
Distributed architectures/parallel programming models for machine
learning/Deep Learning).

* Modelling and Simulation of Large Complex Systems (e.g. Cellular
automata/genetic algorithms/swarm Intelligence implementations; 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 (e.g. design and performance
analysis of communication networks; Communication protocols of IoT;
Distributed applications with emphasis on scalability; Pervasive computing,
distributed robotics)

* Scalable Machine Learning (deploying large scale analytics)

* Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology (e.g. Distributed Consensus
and Fault Tolerance, Performance and Scalability Issues for Blockchain,
Blockchain in cyber physical systems, Blockchain in edge and cloud
computing, Blockchain-based Applications and Services, Distributed Database
Technology for Blockchain)
