4th Call for Papers

for the
special session at the
30th Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and 
network-based Processing

Valladolid, Spain  - Both On-site and Online conference

March 9 - 11, 2022

Cloud Computing covers a broad range of distributed computing principles 
from infrastructure (e.g distributed storage, reconfigurable networks) 
to new programming platforms (e.g MS Azure, Google Appe Engine), and 
internet-based applications. Particularly, Infrastructure as a Service 
(IaaS) Cloud systems allow the dynamic creation, destruction and 
management of virtual machines (VMs) as part of virtual computing 
infrastructures. IaaS Clouds provide a high-level of abstraction to the 
end user, one that allows the creation of on-demand services through a 
pay as you go infrastructure combined with elasticity. The increasingly 
large range of choices and availability of IaaS toolkits has also 
allowed creation of cloud solutions and frameworks even suitable for 
private deployment and practical IaaS use on smaller scales.

This special session on Cloud Computing is intended to be a forum for 
the exchange of ideas and experiences on the use of Cloud Computing 
technologies and applications with compute and data intensive workloads. 
The special session also aims at presenting the challenges and 
opportunities offered by the development of open-source Cloud Computing 
solutions, as well as case studies in applications of Cloud Computing.

Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished research in the 
areas of Cloud Computing, Fog/Edge, Serverless and Distributed 
Computing. With the rapid evolution of newly emerging technologies, this 
session also aims to provide a forum for novel methods and case studies 
on the integrated use of clouds, fogs, Internet of Things (IoT) and 
Blockchain systems. The general venue will be a good occasion to share, 
learn, and discuss the latest results in these research fields. The 
special session program will include presentations of peer-reviewed papers.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Cloud Computing for scientific, compute and/or data intensive applications
- Virtual Machine scheduling and management algorithms
- Operational challenges, federative and interoperability aspects of 
IaaS systems
- Virtual machine/container image and virtual appliance storage 
management (e.g., caching, repositories, marketplaces)
- Virtualization and container technologies and their effects on IaaS 
- Programming models, tools, orchestration techniques, applications and 
workflows involving Cloud and IoT systems
- Cloud, Edge and Fog services for the Internet of Things
- Cloud, Edge and Fog services for enhanced Blockchain infrastructures
- Performance evaluation, modelling, simulation and prediction of 
integrated cloud, fog, blockchain and IoT systems
- Scalability issues of IoT-Fog-Cloud systems
- Security and Privacy aspects of data management in clouds, fogs, 
blockchain and IoT systems

Submission guidelines
Authors are required to submit original, unpublished research or 
overviews on infrastructure clouds and their applications. Submitted 
manuscripts should not exceed 8 pages in the Conference proceedings 
format (IEEEtran, double-column, 10pt). The special session applies 
double-bind review: the paper should not contain authors’ names and 
affiliations; in the reference list, references to the authors’ own work 
entries should be substituted with the string "omitted for blind review”.

Please note, as the first step of the submission procedure, authors must 
pick the cloud special session in order to be considered for inclusion 
within the session.

All accepted papers will be included in the same volume as the main 
conference's material, and they will be published by the Conference 
Publishing Services (CPS). The Final Paper Preparation and Submission 
Instructions will be published after the notification of acceptance. 
Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their 
papers at the Conference. Conference proceedings will be submitted to 
IEEE explore, CSDL, and for indexing among others, to DBLP, Scopus 
ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.
