Call For Papers

  The 21st IEEE/ACM international Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and
Internet Computing (CCGrid 2021) is a leading forum to disseminate and
discuss research activities and results on a broad range of topics in
distributed systems, ranging from computing Clusters to widely
distributed Clouds and emerging Internet computing paradigms such as
Fog/Edge Computing for Internet of Things (IoT)/Big Data applications.
The conference features keynotes, technical presentations, posters,
workshops, tutorials, as well as the SCALE challenge featuring live
demonstrations and the ICFEC 2021 conference.

In 2021, IEEE/ACM CCGrid 2021 will be ‘self-colocated’ with its
postponed 2020 edition, in Melbourne, Australia. We will jointly
celebrate the 20th and 21st anniversary of the conference !

We solicit original contributions on all aspects of distributed systems
and applications in the context of Cluster, Cloud, and Internet
computing environments. Specific topics of interest include but are not
limited to the following:

Internet Computing Frontiers: Edge, Fog, Serverless, Lambda, Streaming,
Highly decentralized approaches to cloud computing. Edge/Fog computing,
sensor data streaming and computation on the edges of the network.
Function as a Service (Faas), Backend as a Service (BaaS), serverless
computing, lambda computing.

Architecture, Networking, Data Centers:  Service oriented architectures.
Utility computing models. IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, *aaS paradigms. Service
composition and orchestration. Software-Defined Network-enabled Systems.
Micro-datacenter, cloudlet, edge, or fog computing infrastructure.
Virtualized hardware: GPUs, tensor processing units, FPGAs.

Storage and I/O Systems:  Distributed storage, cloud storage, Storage as
a Service, data locality techniques for in-memory processing, storage in
the edge.

Programming Models and Runtime Systems:  Programming models, languages,
systems and tools/environments. Virtualization, containers, and
middleware technologies. Actors, agents, programming decentralized
computing systems.

Resource Management and Scheduling: Resource allocation algorithms,
profiling, modeling. Cluster, cloud, and internet computing scheduling
and meta-scheduling techniques.

Performance Modelling and Evaluation: Performance models. Monitoring and
evaluation tools. Analysis of system/application performance.

Cyber-Security, Privacy and Resilient Distributed Systems: Distributed
Systems security and trust. Access control. Data privacy and integrity.
Regulation. Resiliency of service attacks.

Sustainable and Green Computing: Environment friendly computing
ecosystems. Hardware/software/application energy efficiency. Power,
cooling and thermal awareness.

Applications: Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning,
Cyber-Physical Systems, e-Health, Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled Smart
Systems and Applications.

Best Paper Awards:

CCGrid will present Best Paper Awards to the author(s) of top three
papers selected by the Program Committee. The award will be determined
based on review comments and ratings, viewpoints of the technical and
scientific merits, impact on the science and engineering of the research
work and the clarity of presentation of the research contents in the paper.

Journal Special Issue:

Highly rated Top 5 papers from the CCGrid 2021 conference will be
invited for submission of extended version for publication in a special
issue of the "Software: Practice and Experience" Journal published by
Wiley Press.
