*** ScienceCloud 2020 ***: 11th Workshop on Scientific Cloud Computing

Held in conjunction with ACM HPDC 2020. Physical meeting was canceled
due to COVID-19 but we are still accepting papers and they will be
published in the conference proceedings. Also, at the direction of
HPDC, we may organize a virtual workshop.


The 11th workshop on Scientific Cloud Computing (ScienceCloud) will
provide the scientific community a dedicated forum for discussing new
research, development, and deployment efforts in running scientific
computing workloads in such a complex ecosystem that results from the
convergence of cloud, big data and machine learning. The focus is on
the use of cloud-based technologies to meet new convergence challenges
that are not well served by the current supercomputers and dedicated
data centers. The workshop aims to address questions such as: What
architectural changes to the current cloud frameworks (hardware,
operating systems, networking and/or programming models) are needed to
support the triple convergence? Dynamic information derived from
remote instruments, coupled simulations, and sensor ensembles that
stream data for real-time analysis and machine learning are important
emerging trends. How can cloud technologies enable and adapt to these
patterns? How are scientists using clouds? Are there scientific
workloads that are suitable candidates to take advantage of emerging
cloud computing resources with high efficiency? What factors are
limiting the use of clouds or would make them more usable and
efficient"? This workshop encourages interaction and cross-pollination
between those developing applications, algorithms, software, hardware
and networking, emphasizing scientific computing for cloud platforms.
The workshop will be an excellent place to help the community define
the current state, determine future goals, and discuss promising
technologies and techniques.

The ScienceCloud workshop, to be held as a full-day meeting at ACM
HPDC 2020 in Stockholm, Sweden, solicits high-quality 8-page and
4-page publications describing original research in the following

- Scientific application cases studies on cloud infrastructures
- Performance evaluation of cloud environments and technologies
- Fault tolerance and reliability in cloud systems
- Data-intensive workloads and tools in clouds
- Use of programming models (e.g. Spark, Map-Reduce) and their
implementations in cloud settings
- Scalable and elastic architectures for cloud storage and I/O
- Workflow and resource management in the cloud
- Use of cloud technologies (e.g., NoSQL databases) for scientific applications
- Data streaming and dynamic applications in the cloud
- Heterogeneous resources (network, storage, compute) and edge/fog
- Application of cloud concepts in HPC environments or vice versa
- Virtualized high performance I/O network interconnects
- Virtualization, containers, and dynamic provisioning
- Analysis of management complexity, cost, variability, and
reproducibility of cloud and IoT environments
- Stream processing for scientific applications in the cloud
- Edge, Fog and hybrid Cloud - Edge / Fog computing
- High-performance AI and deep learning frameworks (e.g. Tensorflow)
and their implementation in cloud settings
- Scalability and cost-effective elasticity of AI and deep learning
(e.g. data-parallel training) for cloud infrastructures

Paper submission deadline: April 27, 2020
Author notifications: May 7, 2020
Camera ready papers: May 11, 2020
Workshop date: TBD (virtual)

Authors are invited to submit papers describing unpublished, original
research. All submitted manuscripts should be formatted using the ACM
Master Template with sigconf format (please be sure to use the current
version). All necessary documentation can be found at:
https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template. The maximum
lengths are 8 and 4 pages (including all text, figures, and
references). All papers must be in English. We use single-blind
reviewing process, so please keep the authors names, publications,
etc., in the text. Papers will be peer-reviewed, and accepted papers
will be published in the workshop proceedings as part of the ACM
Digital Library.

Papers conforming to these guidelines should be submitted through EasyChair:

Alexandru Costan, IRISA / INSA Rennes, France (alexandru.costan@xxxxxxxx)
Bogdan Nicolae, Argonne National Laboratory, USA (bogdan.nicolae@xxxxxxx)
Kento Sato, RIKEN Center, Japan (kento.sato@xxxxxxxx)

The hpc-announce mailing list has been setup to have a common mailing
list to share information with respect to upcoming HPC related
events. You are included in this mailing list based on your
participation or interest in a previous HPC conference or other event.

The purpose for providing a single mailing list is to allow
participants to easily identify such emails, and handle them
appropriately. Some options include:

1. If you feel that the number of such emails is too many, filter them
to less-frequently-read folders in your email client.

2. Change your subscription to a digest option
(https://lists.mcs.anl.gov/mailman/listinfo/hpc-announce) which will
consolidate emails sent that week into a single summary email.  If you do not remember your password (which is needed to change these options), you can reset it using the "Unsubscribe or Edit Options" button at the bottom of the page.

3. Finally, if you do not wish to receive any emails from hpc-announce,
you can unsubscribe from the mailing list
(https://lists.mcs.anl.gov/mailman/listinfo/hpc-announce). Once
unsubscribed, we guarantee that you will not be added back in through
participation in a different HPC related conference or event. You will
need to send an email to hpc-announce-owner@xxxxxxxxxxx to be added
back on.

If you need help with any of the above, please email us at
