                 CCGrid'2021: Call For Posters

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

             May 10-13, 2021, Melbourne, Australia

           Website: http://cloudbus.org/ccgrid2021/

We invite participants to submit a poster to the CCGrid 2021
conference. CCGrid aims at presenting the latest breakthroughs in
Cluster, Grid and Cloud technologies for both academic and industry

CCGrid 2021 will have a special focus on three important issues that are
significantly influencing all aspects of Cluster, Cloud, and Internet
computing: Adaptive Elastic Computing, Green Computing, and Cyber-Physical
Computing. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    * Internet Computing Frontiers
        - Edge, Fog, Serverless, Lambda, Streaming, etc.

    * Architecture, Networking, Data Centers
        - Service oriented architectures, (I/P)aaS paradigms,
          Virtualized hardware (GPUs, TPUs, FPGAs), etc.

    * 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 and Privacy
        - Cloud security and trust. Access control. Data privacy and
          integrity. Regulation.

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

    * Applications
        - Applications to real and complex problems in science, engineering,
          business and society. User studies. Experiences with large-scale
          deployments systems and data science applications. Distributed
          AI/Machine Learning on the cloud. Data streaming analytics for
          intelligent transportation systems.

    * Emerging Topics
        - Blockchain inspired models in distributed systems, Big Data
          (or data intensive) models

Submisssion and Review Process

The poster submission will be through EasyChair.


Each research poster will be taken through a comprehensive peer review
process by an internationally recognized group of experts in the field.
Posters will be evaluated along the metrics of a) Quality of Presentation;
b) Novelty / Originality; c) Relation to State of the Art; d) Technical
Strength; e) Significance of Work; and f) Relevance to Conference. Every
effort will be made to ensure that each poster receives multiple reviews.

Posters can be submitted through EasyChair in one of two ways:

1) Proceedings Published Posters

Participants submitting proceedings published posters are required to
submit 1) a short paper upto four pages describing the poster content,
research, relevance and importance to the cluster, grid and cloud
computing community and 2) the draft of the actual poster to be
presented as a PDF file. If accepted, this four page short paper will
be published in the proceedings of the conference.

Important dates

Deadline for proceeding published posters            :  19 February 2021
Notification of Acceptance                           :  26 February 2021
Final Version Due                                    :   3 March    2021

2) Web Published Posters

These posters require a 1) short one page abstract and 2) the draft of
the actual poster to be presented as a PDF file to be submitted. These
abstracts will not be included in the conference proceedings, but will
be published on the conference website.

Important dates

Deadline for web published posters          :  19    March 2021
Notification of Acceptance                  :   9    April 2021
Final Version Due                           :  16    April 2021

Poster Presentation Information
 * By submitting a poster proposal, you agree to present the poster at
   CCGrid'21 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
 * Poster presenters need to be registered CCGrid'21 participants.
   Only posters of registered presenters will be admitted
 * For both forms of posters, participants will be able to display the
   poster during the conference and give a short 5 minute presentation
   about their poster.
