The First Hybrid GECON

19th International Conference on  Economics of Grids,

Clouds, Systems & Services


GECON 2022 will be a hybrid conference that will run fully

in-person and fully virtually. The conference is designed

and meant to be a hybrid conference to take advantage

of the best that the two modalities can offer.

Extended Deadlines:

   Full, short papers: June 26th, 2022

   Poster and new ideas papers: June 26th, 2022

GECON 2022 builds upon the very successful tradition of

the conference previous editions since 2003. GECON

solicits contributions that are  interdisciplinary,

combining business and economic aspects  with engineering

and computer science related themes.

Publication and Submission Guidelines for Papers


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.  The process for  the

special issue will start right after the celebration

of the 19th edition of GECON 2022, whose extended deadline

is 26 June 2022. Participation in the conference is an ideal

opportunity to receive feedback from the GECON community.

 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.
