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

To be held in conjunction with Supercomputing 2020 
November 15, 2020 - 9am-12:30pm
Atlanta, GA, USA

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.

Technical Paper Submission Deadline: 11:59 PM GMT, August 07, 2020
Author Notification: September 11, 2020
Camera-ready Deadline: 11:59 PM GMT, October 2. 2020
Workshop Date: November 15, 2020, 9am-12:30pm (Sunday)


Submissions will be done through the SC submission site (powered by 
Linklings): https://submissions.supercomputing.org

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 
details: https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html

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.
