/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 modelling
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)

Vertical scaling, burstable computing, vertical elasticity
Resource management: allocation, sharing, and scheduling
Capacity planning
Virtualization and containers
Service science, management and engineering (SSME)

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 (available near soon).

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 Submissions/

Poster presentations provide a unique opportunity for PhD
students and young researchers to present their ongoing work and
to receive constructive feedback from their peers as well as
experts in the field (including academics and practitioners) at
the GECON conference.

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 then just giving a talk.

Accepted Tutorial: “Serverless Computing:
State of the Artand Research Challenges”
(Karim Djemame)

Serverless computing is revolutionising 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.
