[Condor-users] CFP: Special Issue on Science-driven Cloud Computing, in the Scientific Programming Journal

Call for Papers

Scientific Programming Journal
Special Issue on Science-driven Cloud Computing

Cloud computing first established in the business computing domain is now a topic
of research in computer science and an interesting execution platform for science
applications. Today there are a number of commercial and science cloud
deployments, including those provided by Amazon, Google, IBM, Microsoft, and
others. Campus and national labs are also deploying their own cloud solutions.
The ability to control the resources and the pay-as-you go usage model enables
new approaches to application development and resource provisioning. Science
applications are looking towards the cloud to provide a stable and customizable
execution environment. This special issue of the Scientific Programming Journal	
is dedicated to the computational challenges and opportunities of cloud

We invite the submission of original work that is related to the topics below.
Topics of interest include (in the context of Cloud Computing):
*	Scientific cloud applications
*	Novel programming models
*	High-performance computing
*	Many-task computing
*	Resource scheduling
*	Compute resource management
*	Resource provisioning and configuration (compute, data, and network)
*	Adaptive computing and resource usage
*	Power-aware use of clouds computing
*	Storage cloud architectures and implementations
*	Cloud scalability and elasticity
*	Performance Evaluations and Benchmarks
*	Quality of service and SLA management
*	Cloud heterogeneity
*	Charging models
*	Models, frameworks and systems for cloud security and privacy
*	Monitoring

Paper Submission
Authors are encouraged to submit high quality, original work that has neither
appeared in, nor is under consideration by other journals. The manuscript must
follow the formatting instructions found at the Scientific Programming site at
http://www.iospress.nl/html/10589244_ita.html. Papers should be not more than 25
pages of single column text using double spaced 10 point size on 8.5 x 11 inch
pages and 1" margins (including all text, figures, and references). A 250 word
abstract (PDF format) must be submitted online at
https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/SPJ_ScienceCloud_2011/  before the deadline of
October 22nd, 2010 at 11:59PM PST; the final 25 page papers in PDF format will be
due on October 29th, 2010 at 11:59PM PST. Papers will be peer-reviewed, and
accepted papers will be published in the IOS Press. Notifications of the paper
decisions will be sent out by December 1st, 2010. Accepted papers will be
published by IOS Press without any fees to the authors.
