International Symposium on Cloud Computing and Services for
High Performance Computing Systems
CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPATION
As part of
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2012)
July 2 – July 6, 2012
Submission Deadline: March 06, 2012
Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters
SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
“Cloud” is a common metaphor for an Internet accessible infrastructure, hiding most of the implementation and deployment details of the system from users. Cloud computing delivers IT-related capabilities as services over the Internet, allowing resources be managed and accessed in an Internet scale. Cloud computing has been envisaged to be one of the main-stream powering technologies of future IT systems.
This symposium focuses on techniques, experiences, applications, and lessons learned for interoperable services in the cloud, particularly in the realms of high performance computing. For instance, HPC may be used for the construction of mathematical models and numerical solutions and techniques for solving scientific, socio-scientific and engineering problems. It often requires a huge number of computing and storage resources to perform large-scale analyses and experiments. Users could get access to their own virtualized HPC cluster in a self-service, dynamically scalable and fully configurable environment. Cloud computing can address many of the aforementioned concerns. Such a computing paradigm shift provides a flexible high performance computing environment.
The symposium aims at providing a forum to bring together researchers and scientists to share and exchange cloud computing related research, technologies, experiences, and lessons for building various types clouds with interoperability and coordination capabilities in a high performance and high availability setting.
The Symposium topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
Cloud Interoperability and Federation Protocols
Programming Models for HPC Clouds
Semantic Web Services Definitions for Clouds
Directory of Services for Clouds
Management of Interoperability and Federation for Clouds
Interoperable and Federated Cloud Security and Trust
Cloud Interoperability and Federation Governance and Regulatory
HPC Cloud-based Services
QoS/SLA in Interoperable and Federated Clouds
Converged Implementations of Clouds and Grids
Geo-balancing in Interoperable and Federated Clouds
Common Programming Models across Clouds
Cloud Broker, Exchange, Arbitrage architectures
Semantic Web for Clouds
Virtualization Technologies and Techniques
Virtualization Techniques for HPC GPU/Multicore Systems
Management of Clouds
Performance Evaluation and Monitoring of HPC Clouds
Scalable Fault Resilience Techniques for HPC Clouds
Experiences and Lessons
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to Cloud Computing and Services for High Performance Computing Systems. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged at additional fee. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to http://hpcs2012.cisedu.info/home/posters for the submission details) will also be accepted for submission. Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.
Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the symposium paper submission site https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=intercloudhpc2012. Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission.
Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the symposium. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be available at the time of the meeting.
Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the HPCS conference and present the paper in the symposium. Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance.
All accepted papers will be published as ISBN proceedings by the IEEE, and will be available online through IEEE Xplore (EI indexing).
If you have any questions about paper submission or the symposium, please contact the organizers.
