The 21th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Internet 
Computing (CCGrid 2021)

May 10-13, 2021, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia



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.
