Dear Colleagues:

We cordially invite you to share your latest research results related to big data analytics and intelligence at the IEEE SC2 2019 conference.  


The 'Cloud' is a natural evolution of distributed computing and the widespread adaption of virtualization and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). Services computing is a new cross-discipline subject that covers the science and technology needed to bridge the gap between business services and IT services. In cloud computing, IT-related capabilities and resources are provided as services, via the Internet and on-demand, accessible without requiring detailed knowledge of the underlying technology.

SC2 2019 is an important forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in the state of art and practice of IT-driven cloud computing technologies and services, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future directions of cloud and services computing.

IEEE SC2 2019 welcomes paper submissions on innovative work from researchers in academia industry and government describing original research work in Big Data. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version (with at least 30% new material) for review and publication in special issues of international journals.

IEEE SC2 2019 will be held on Nov. 18-21, 2019, co-located with IEEE DataCom 2019, IEEE SOCA 2019 and IOV 2019, in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Cloud architecture
- Cloud OS, middleware, and toolkits
- Fog / Edge computing
- Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies and Contracts
- Cloud storage architecture
- Big data infrastructure, systems, methodologies, and applications
- Virtualization techniques
- Resource provision, monitoring, and scheduling
- Privacy and access control for cloud computing

- Proposals for organizing tutorials, workshops and special sessions need to be submitted to the Workshops Chair of the conference. A proposal should include title, theme, scope and main presenters/organizers.

- Research paper (8 pages) should explore a specific technology problem and propose a complete solution to it, with experimental results. 

- Works-in-Progess (WIP) (6 pages) papers are expected to present either work currently in progress or less developed but highly innovative ideas. 

- Demo/Poster papers (4 pages) must describe working systems and be related to SC2. These systems may be innovative prototype implementations or mature systems that use related technology.  Papers/proposals need to be submitted to the Demo/Poster Chair.

- Workshop and Special Session papers need to be submitted to the corresponding workshops and special sessions Chairs. 

All accepted papers in the main tracks, workshops, special sessions and demos/posters will be published in an IEEE Computer Society proceedings. Extended versions of selected excellent papers will be considered for publication in special issues of prestige journals (SCI/EI indexed).

The award committee will select Best Paper/Poster Award(s) and present the winners with an actual frame Award Certificate at the conference banquet.
