Technical Section: 11th Workshop on Scalable Computing (WSC'20)

Organized within the framework of the Federated Conference on Computer 
Science and Information Systems (FedCSIS 2020), Track 2

Sofia, Bulgaria, 6-9 September, 2020


COVID-19  Information

We would like to assure everybody that FedCSIS 2020 will take place, the 
submitted and accepted papers will be published and sent for indexations 
as usual. In case the conference cannot be staged in real setting of 
beautiful Sofia, we will provide a virtual web-based avenue for it. We 
look forward to receiving your contributions as usual and guarantee that 
FedCSIS 2020 will be another memorable and rewarding conference.

Nevertheless, we would like to stress that in case of inability to be 
physically present at the FedCSIS Conference, due to travel 
restrictions, the FedCSIS paper authors will be allowed to remotely 
present their papers.

The world of large-scale computing continuously evolves. The most recent 
addition to the mix comes from numerous data streams that materialize 
from exploding number of cheap sensors installed “everywhere”, on the 
one hand, and ability to capture and study events with systematically 
increasing granularity, on the other. To address the needs for scaling 
computational and storage infrastructures, concepts like: edge, fog and 
dew computing emerged.

Novel issues in involved in “pushing computing away from the center” did 
not replace open questions that existed in the context of grid and cloud 
computing. Rather, they added new dimensions of complexity and resulted 
in the need of addressing scalability across more and more complex 
ecosystems consisting of individual sensors and micro-computers (e.g. 
Raspberry PI based systems) as well as supercomputers available within 
the Cloud (e.g. Cray computers facilitated within the MS Azure Cloud).

Addressing research questions that arise in individual “parts” as well 
as across the ecosystem viewed from a holistic perspective, with 
scalability as the main focus is the goal of the Workshop on Scalable 
Computing. In this context, the following topics are of special interest 
(however, this list is not exhaustive).

Covered TOPICS include (but are not limited to):

- General issues in scalable computing
- Algorithms and programming models for large-scale applications, 
simulations and systems
- Large-scale symbolic, numeric, data-intensive, graph-oriented, 
distributed computations
- Fault-tolerant and consensus techniques for large-scale computing
- Resilient large-scale computing
- Data models for large-scale applications, simulations and systems
- Large-scale distributed databases
- Load-balancing / intelligent resource management in large-scale 
applications, simulations and systems
- Performance analysis, evaluation, optimization and prediction
- Scientific workflow scheduling
- Data visualization
- On-demand computing
- Virtualization supporting computations
- Volunteer computing
- Scaling applications from small-scale to exa-scale (and back)
- Big data real-time computing / analytics
- Economic, business and ROI models for large-scale applications
- Emerging technologies for scalable computing
- Cloud / Fog / Dew computing architectures, models, algorithms and 
- High performance computing in Cloud / Fog / Dew
- Green computing in Cloud / Fog / Dew
- Performance, capacity management and monitoring of Cloud / Fog / Dew 
- Cloud / Fog / Dew application scalability and availability
- Big Data cloud services
- Architectures for large-scale computations (GPUs, accelerators, 
quantum systems, federated systems, etc.)
- Self* and autonomous computational / storage systems
