SuperCompCloud 2020: 3rd Workshop on Interoperability of Supercomputing
and Cloud Technologies

To be held in conjunction with Supercomputing 2020
November 11, 2020 - 10:00 AM-2:00 PM (Eastern time)
via the SC20 virtual platform

NOTE: Paper submissions have been extended to August 21, 2020

This workshop aims at bringing together a group of experts and
practitioners from academia, national laboratories, and industry to
discuss technologies, use cases and best practices in order to set a
vision and direction for leveraging high performance, extreme-scale
computing and on-demand cloud ecosystems. Topics of interest include
tools and technologies enabling scientists for adopting scientific
applications to cloud interfaces, interoperability of HPC and cloud
resource management and scheduling systems, cloud and HPC storage
convergence to allow a high degree of flexibility for users and
community platform developers, continuous integration/deployment
approaches, reproducibility of scientific workflows in distributed
environment, and best practices for enabling X-as-a-Service model at
scale while maintaining a range of security constraints.

This workshop will cover topics related to interoperability of
supercomputing and cloud computing, networking and storage technologies
that are being leveraged by use cases and research infrastructure
providers with a goal to improve productivity and reproducibility of
extreme-scale scientific workflows.

Submissions will be done through the SC submission site (powered by

All submissions must be in English and should not exceed 6 pages using
the IEEE conference format (double column, 10pt font). Submissions must
be made as a single PDF file formatted for 8.5" x 11" (U.S. Letter)
which includes all figures and references. Papers should not be
submitted in parallel to any other conference or journal. For more

The submitted papers will go through a peer-review process and will be
evaluated according to four main criteria: the relevance of the work,
its technical soundness, its originality/novelty and the quality of the
presentation. The workshop proceedings will be published through IEEE
TCHPC and included in the the IEEE Xplore digital library.

At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a
participant of the workshop and present the paper at the workshop, in
order to have the paper published in the proceedings.
