- Camera Ready deadline: July 26th, 2022
- Poster Submission  for accepted papers: August  2nd, 2022

/Topics of Interest/
As a global market for infrastructures, platforms, and
software services emerge, the need to understand and deal with
its implications and its interdisciplinary challenges is
quickly growing. To address this, GECON encourages the
submission of papers, which combine at least one
economic/legal area and one technologic area. GECON list of
areas includes but is not limited to:

    Trustworthiness of services
    Ecosystem economics
    Incentive design, strategic behavior & game theory
    Market mechanisms, auctions models, and bidding languages
    Economic efficiency
    Techno-economic analysis and modeling
    Pricing schemes and revenue models
    Preemptible computing
    Metering, accounting, and billing
    Cost-benefit analysis
    Automated trading and bidding support tools
    Trust, reputation, security, and risk management
    Performance monitoring, optimization, and prediction
    Economics of Open Data
    Trustworthiness and Assurances for Quality of Data
    Economic impact of distributed storage solutions
    Energy efficiency
    Business models and strategies
    Decision support

-Law and Legal Aspects-
    Standardization, interoperability, and legal aspects
    Service level Agreements (SLAs)
    Negotiation, monitoring, and enforcement
    Governance of ecosystems

-Clouds, Grids, Systems and Services-

-Applications and Technologies Transforming the Economy-
    Smart grids, smart cities, and smart buildings
    Energy-aware infrastructures and services
    Fog, edge, cloud computing
    Micro-services, serverless computing
    AI-enabled computing continuum from Cloud to Edge
    Community networks
    Social networks
    Social computing
    Shared public infrastructures for knowledge exchange:
    (e.g. IPFS, Origin Trail, Decentralized Knowledge Graphs)
    Big data
    Reports on industry test-beds and operational markets
    Data stream ingestion and complex event processing
    Open source

/Publication and Submission Guidelines for Papers/
Original full papers and short papers (work-in-progress papers),
which are not currently under review by another conference, will
be considered. Manuscripts will be reviewed based on technical
merit, originality, and relevance. Past acceptance rates have
been around 30 per cent in recent years.

Full papers and short papers (work-in-progress papers) shall be
submitted using the Springer LNCS format. Submitted full papers
should not exceed 12 pages and WIP papers should not exceed 8
pages (including references and appendices). For further
details, visit the GECON 2022 web page.

Paper submissions are managed through EasyChair at

The proceedings will be published by Springer LNCS.

Extended versions of up to 10 accepted papers in the Computer
Science field will be invited for publication in a special
issue of the
- Elsevier Journal of Future Generation Computing Systems.
  For papers targeting mainly business and economic aspects, a
  special issue of the
- Springer Electronic Markets Journal or the
- Elsevier Electronic Commerce Research and Applications
- Springer Electronic Commerce Research
  with up to 15 papers is foreseen.

 / Poster and New Ideas Paper Submission Guidelines /

Posters can be submitted as an extended abstract (4 pages +
1 page poster) which should not exceed 4 pages using the
Springer LNCS format describing the poster content, research,
relevance and importance to the GECON community. Additionally,
the submission must include a fifth page that is an A4 draft
of the poster.

New-idea papers provide a unique opportunity for PhD students
and young researchers to present their new ideas, and senior
researchers to present their starting activities, current progress,
or novel approaches to their works. New ideas papers will be
included in the poster sessions.

Authors of accepted full papers and short papers (work-in-progress
papers) are also welcome to present their work  in poster
sessions, giving them a higher visibility than just giving a talk.

Poster dimensions: A0 size is recommended but A1 is also acceptable.

 / Accepted Tutorial: “Serverless Computing: State of the Art
 and Research Challenges” (Karim Djemame) /
Serverless computing is revolutionizing cloud application
development as it offers the ability to create modular, highly-scalable,
fault-tolerant applications. The serverless architecture has seen
widespread adoption from tech industry giants such as Amazon,
Google and as well as the public domain, with open-source projects
such as Apache OpenWhisk, Fission and OpenFaaS. This tutorial will
present the state-of-the-art in serverless computing research, and
provide useful insights into the main challenges that motivate
 researchers to work on this topic. It will also identify research
gaps for future research.
