International Symposium on Cloud Computing and Services for High Performance Computing Systems

(InterCloud-HPC 2019)


As part of
The 17th International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2019)
July 15 – 19, 2019
Dublin, Ireland

Paper Submission Deadline: 15 April 2019 - Extended

Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters

Cloud Computing has now become the prevalent paradigm for powering modern IT systems and data-intensive scientific applications. The success of the cloud is, in large parts, due to its ease of access through the Internet, its ability to hide hardware deployment and maintenance, and its elasticity that makes applications reach Internet scale easier than ever before.

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 InterCloud-HPC Symposium topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Cloud Architectures
  • Fog and Edge Computing
  • Cloud Interoperability and Federation Protocols
  • Programming Models for HPC Clouds
  • Semantic Web Services Definitions for Clouds
  • Directory of Services for Clouds
  • Middleware Frameworks
  • 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
  • Cloud Protocols
  • 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
  • Cloud Application
  • 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 until it appears in HPCS proceedings, in the case of acceptance, or notified otherwise
Submission can be for
-  Regular papers, please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column formatted pages per template, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author(s) although all authors are equally responsible for the manuscript. 
-  Short papers (up to 4 pages), please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 4 double-column formatted pages per template, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author(s) although all authors are equally responsible for the manuscript.
-  Poster papers and Posters (please refer to http://hpcs2019.cisedu.info/1-call-for-papers-and-participation/call-for-posters  for posters submission details) will also be considered. 

Please specify the type of submission you have. Please include page numbers on all preliminary 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 at 
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=intercloudhpc2019.  Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission. 

Conference Policies
Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the submission link above.  Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews.  Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical clarity and presentation, language, and references.  Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted.  At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the HPCS 2019 conference to present the paper at the symposium as scheduled. By submitting the paper to the HPCS conference, all authors agree to abide by all HPCS conference paper submission, publication and presentation policies as well as following ethical and professional codes of conduct, including those of the professional co-sponsoring organizations. For more information, please refer to the Authors Info and Registration Info pages. 
The symposium policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others before publication. It is expected that no one with access to a manuscript under review will make any inappropriate use of the special knowledge which that access provides. 

Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2019 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE or ACM Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly. 

Plans are underway to have the best papers, in extended version, selected for possible publication in a reputable journal as special issue. Detailed information will soon be announced and will be made available on the conference website. 

If you have any questions about paper submission or the symposium, please contact the Symposium organizers.
