GECON 2022 - The First Hybrid Edition of GECON
19th International Conference on Economics of Grids, Clouds, Systems & 

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 30th, 2022
    Poster and new ideas papers: June 30th, 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 selection of papers will start right after the celebration
of the 19th edition of GECON 2022, whose extended deadline
is 30 June 2022. Participation in the conference is an ideal
opportunity to receive feedback from the GECON community.
After the invitation to participate in the special issue,
a 40% different content to GECON Proceedings modified
text/results is expected.

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.
