*ALGOCLOUD 2020: 6th International Symposium on Algorithmic Aspects of 
Cloud Computing*
*Pisa, Italy, September 9-10, 2020*


The Organization Committee (OC) is committed to ALGO 2020 and aware of 
the pandemic situation for the COVID-19 outbreak, announced by the World 
Health Organization. As already happened for other conferences, the OC 
is preparing backup plans such as moving the events or (partially) 
running them in a virtual way. What is most important is that the 
scientific activity of the Programme Committees of the ALGO conferences 
is not suspended or stopped: peer review, accepted papers, camera ready 
and proceedings will be accomplished as usual. As for the talks and the 
participation, the health and safety of our community is our priority: 
attending and giving the talks will be safe, and virtual presence will 
be possible in case of remaining safety concerns or travel restrictions.


ALGOCLOUD is an annual international symposium aiming to tackle the 
diverse new topics in the emerging area of algorithmic aspects of 
computing and data management in modern cloud-based systems (which are 
broadly defined so as to include edge- and fog-based systems, cloudlets, 
cloud micro-services, as well as virtualization environments).

ALGOCLOUD aims at bringing together researchers, students, and 
practitioners to present research activities and results on topics 
related to algorithmic, design, and development aspects of modern 
cloud-based systems. ALGOCLOUD 2020 is co-located with ALGO 2020, a 
leading international event of researchers working on algorithms and 
their engineering.

    Important Dates

  * Paper submission deadline: June 24th 2020
  * Notification: July 24th 2020
  * Conference: September 9 - 10, 2020, in Pisa, Italy

    Call for Papers

ALGOCLOUD welcomes submissions on all theoretical, design, and 
implementation aspects of modern cloud-based systems. ALGOCLOUD is 
particularly interested in novel algorithms in the context of cloud 
computing, cloud architectures, as well as experimental work that 
evaluates contemporary cloud approaches and pertinent applications. 
ALGOCLOUD also welcomes demonstration manuscripts, which discuss 
successful system developments, as well as experience/use-case articles 
and high-quality survey papers. Contributions may span a wide range of 
algorithms for modeling, practices for building and techniques for 
evaluating operations and services in a variety of systems, including 
but not limited to, virtualized infrastructures, cloud computing 
platforms, edge computing platforms, fog computing platforms, 
datacenters, cloud-storage options, cloud data management, 
non-traditional key-value stores on the cloud, and HPC architectures.

Submissions should focus on aspects of cloud-based systems and their 
algorithms, including (but not limited to) the following areas:

  * Analysis of Algorithms and Data Structures
  * Resource Management and Scheduling
  * Data Center and Infrastructure Management
  * Privacy, Security and Anonymization
  * Cloud-based Applications
  * Virtualization and Containers
  * Performance Models
  * Cloud deployment tools and their analysis
  * Novel programming models
  * Storage management
  * Fog and Edge Computing
  * Economic models and Pricing
  * Energy and Power Management
  * Big Data and the Cloud
  * Network Management and Techniques
  * Caching and Load Balancing
  * Machine Learning Techniques on Edge, Fog, Cloud

Accepted papers will be included in the post-proceedings published by 
Springer it its Lecture Notes in Computer Science series 


Submissions must have a length of up to 12 pages in LNCS format, 
excluding references and an optional appendix to be read at the 
discretion of the Program Committee. Papers should be submitted 
electronically via the EasyChair Submission system. By submitting a 
paper the authors acknowledge that in case of acceptance at least one of 
the authors must register and attend ALGO 2020 and/or ALGOCLOUD 2020, 
and present the paper, provided that there are no safety concerns due to 
the COVID-19.
