=== *Overview* ===

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.

=== *Topics* ===

* Virtualization for HPC e.g. virtual machines, containers, etc.
* Storage systems for HPC and cloud technologies
* On-demand and interactivity with performance, scaling and cost 
* Resource management and scheduling systems for HPC and cloud technologies
* Software defined infrastructure for high-end computing, storage and 
* Application environment, integration and deployment technologies
* Secure, high-speed networking for integrated HPC and cloud ecosystems
* Extreme data and compute workflows and use cases
* Research infrastructure deployment use cases
* Resiliency and reproducibility of complex and distributed workflows
* Isolation and security within shared HPC environments
* X-as-a-Service technologies with performance and scalability
* Workflow orchestration using public cloud and HPC data centre resources
* Authentication, authorization and accounting interoperability for HPC 
and cloud ecosystems
* Workforce development for integrated HPC and cloud environments

=== *Submission Guidelines* ===

Submission website: https://submissions.supercomputing.org/ (Submit > 
SC22 Workshop: SuperCompCloud)

All submissions must be in English and should fit in 6 to 8 pages using 
the IEEE conference format (double column, 10pt font). 2-page extended 
abstracts are also allowed. If an abstract is accepted, the full paper 
must be submitted by September 16. 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: 

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 
Computer Society.

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.

=== *Important Dates* ===

Technical Paper/Extended Abstract Submission Deadline: August 5, 2022
Authors Notification: September 2, 2022
Camera-ready Deadline: September 16, 2022
Workshop Date: November 14, 2022

=== *More Information* ===
