12th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid

Computing (CCGrid 2012) Ottawa, Canada

May 13-16, 2012



Rapid advances in processing, communication and systems/middleware
technologies are leading to new paradigms and platforms for computing,
ranging from computing Clusters to widely distributed Grid and
emerging Clouds. CCGrid is a series of very successful conferences,
sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Scalable
Computing (TCSC) and ACM, with the overarching goal of bringing
together international researchers, developers, and users and to
provide an international forum to present leading research activities
and results on a broad range of topics related to these platforms and
paradigms and their applications. The conference features keynotes,
technical presentations, posters and research demos, workshops,
tutorials, as well as the SCALE challenges featuring live

In 2012, CCGrid will come to Canada for the first time and will be
held in Ottawa, the capital city. CCGrid 2012 will have a focus on
important and immediate issues that are significantly influencing all
aspects of cluster, cloud and grid computing. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:

  * Applications and Experiences: Applications to real and complex
    problems in science, engineering, business and society; User
    studies; Experiences with large-scale deployments systems or

  * Architecture: System architectures, Design and deployment.

  * Autonomic Computing and Cyberinfrastructure: Self managed behavior,
    models and technologies; Autonomic paradigms and approaches
    (control-based, bio-inspired, emergent, etc.); Bio-inspired
    approaches to management; SLA definition and enforcement.

  * Performance Modeling and Evaluation: Performance models; Monitoring
    and evaluation tools, Analysis of system/application performance;
    Benchmarks and testbeds.

  * Programming Models, Systems, and Fault-Tolerant Computing:
    Programming models for cluster, clouds and grid computing; fault
    tolerant infrastructure and algorithms; systems software to enable
    efficient computing.

  * Multicore and Accelerator-based Computing: Software and application
    techniques to utilize multicore architectures and
    accelerators/heterogeneous computing systems.

  * Scheduling and Resource Management: Techniques to schedule jobs and
    resources on clusters, clouds and grid computing platforms.

  * Cloud Computing: Cloud architectures; Software tools and techniques
    for clouds.


Authors are invited to submit papers electronically. Submitted
manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may not
exceed 8 letter size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and
references using the IEEE format for conference proceedings:


Submissions not conforming to these guidelines may be
returned without review. Authors should submit the manuscript in PDF
format and make sure that the file will print on a printer that uses
letter size (8.5 x 11) paper. The official language of the meeting is
English. All manuscripts will be reviewed and will be judged on
correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, quality of
presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference attendees.

Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is
not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers
not following these guidelines will be rejected without review and
further action may be taken, including (but not limited to)
notifications sent to the heads of the institutions of the authors and
sponsors of the conference. Submissions received after the due date,
exceeding the page limit, or not appropriately structured may not be
considered. Authors may contact the conference chairs for more
information. The proceedings will be published through the IEEE
Computer Society Press, USA and will be made available online through
the IEEE Digital Library.
