CFP for Special session on "Cloud Computing on Infrastructure as a Service and its Applications"


Cloud Computing on Infrastructure as a Service and its Applications
27th February - 1st March, 2013, Belfast, Northern Ireland

a special session of PDP2013
the 21st Euromicro International Conference on
Parallel, Distributed and Network-Based Computing

Scope and Topics:

Cloud Computing covers a broad range of distributed computing
principles from infrastructure (e.g distributed storage,
reconfigurable networks) to new programming platforms (e.g MS
Azure, Google Appe Engine), and internet based applications.
Particularly, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Cloud systems
allow the dynamic creation, destruction and management of virtual
machines (VMs) on virtualized clusters. IaaS Clouds provide a
high-level of abstraction to the end user, one that allows the
creation of on-demand services through a pay as you go
infrastructure combined with elasticity. This special session on
Cloud Computing is intended to be a forum for the exchange of ideas
and experiences on the use of Cloud Computing technologies and
applications with compute and data intensive workloads, the
challenges and opportunities offered by the development of Cloud
Computing solutions themselves, as well as case studies in
applications of Cloud Computing. The general venue will be a good
occasion to share, learn, and discuss the latest results in this
field of research. The special session program will include
presentations of peer-reviewed papers. The topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:

* Virtualization technologies,
* Beyond-CPU virtualization (e.g. I/O, GPU),
* Virtual Machine scheduling and management algorithms,
* IaaS systems operational challenges,
* Cost and pricing models in virtualized infrastructures,
* Enterprise level infrastructure clouds,
* Solutions that meet demands of HPC clouds,
* Federative aspects of hybrid (mixed private-public) clouds,
* Novel IaaS architectures, platforms and applications,
* Virtual Appliance storage management (e.g. caching, repositories,
* Virtual Machine migration techniques,
* Big Data and Infrastructure clouds,
* Cloud Computing for scientific applications,
* Performance evaluation, modelling and prediction,
* Programming models and tools,
* Cloud computing for compute and/or data intensive applications
* Workflows on the Cloud
* CPU and GPU Clouds, Desktop Grids
* Cloud Computing resource management
* Cloud Computing deployment models
* Cloud storage and I/O


* Deadline for paper submission: 30th July 2012
* Acceptance notification: 8th October 2012
* Camera ready paper due: 29th October 2012
* Conference: 27th February – 1st March 2013

Paper submission:

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 5000
words in length and including a 150-200 word abstract. To
facilitate an anonymous reviewing process, the first page of the
paper should contain only the title and abstract. Proceedings will
be published by IEEE CS. Authors of accepted papers are expected to
register and present the paper at the Conference.

Papers submitted for the workshops or special sessions must be
submitted through the conference submission system with an
indication of the name of the workshop/special session. Papers must
adhere to the formatting rules of the conference and will undergo
the same review process as other papers submitted to the
