ALGOCLOUD 2022

Scope

The International Symposium on Algorithmic Aspects of Cloud Computing (ALGOCLOUD) is an annual event aiming to tackle the diverse new topics in the emerging area of algorithmic aspects of computing and data management in modern cloud-based systems interpreted broadly so as to include edge- and fog-based systems, cloudlets, cloud micro-services, virtualization environments, decentralized systems, as well as dynamic networks.

ALGOCLOUD aims at bringing together researchers, students, and practitioners to present research activities and results on topics related to algorithmic, design, and development aspects of modern cloud-based systems. The 7th edition of this symposium (ALGOCLOUD 2022) is co-located with ALGO 2022, a leading international event of researchers working on algorithms and their engineering.

Important dates

  • Paper submission deadline: Monday, 27 June 2022, 23:59 GMT
  • Notification: Wednesday, 27 July 2022
  • Conference: 5-6 September 2022

Call for Papers

ALGOCLOUD welcomes submissions on all theoretical, design, and implementation aspects of modern cloud-based systems. ALGOCLOUD is particularly interested in novel algorithms in the context of cloud computing, cloud architectures, as well as experimental work that evaluates contemporary cloud approaches and pertinent applications. ALGOCLOUD also welcomes demonstration manuscripts, which discuss successful system developments, as well as experience/use-case articles and high-quality survey papers. Contributions may span a wide range of algorithms for modeling, practices for building and techniques for evaluating operations and services in a variety of systems, including but not limited to: virtualized infrastructures, cloud/edge/fog computing platforms, datacenters, cloud-storage options, cloud data management, non-traditional key-value stores on the cloud, HPC architectures, decentralized systems, as well as dynamic networks.

Submissions should focus on aspects of cloud-based systems and their algorithms, including (but not limited to) the following areas:

  • Analysis of Algorithms and Data Structures
  • Algorithms for Decentralized Systems
  • Algorithms for Dynamic Networks
  • Game-theoretic Approaches for Cloud Computing
  • IoT and Cloud Computing
  • Fog and Edge Computing
  • Resource Management and Scheduling
  • Data Center and Infrastructure Management
  • Privacy, Security and Anonymization
  • Cloud-based Applications
  • Virtualization and Containers
  • Performance Models
  • Cloud deployment tools and their analysis
  • Novel programming models
  • Storage management
  • Economic models and Pricing
  • Energy and Power Management
  • Big Data and the Cloud
  • Network and graph analysis
  • Network Management and Techniques
  • Caching and Load Balancing
  • Machine Learning for Cloud Computing & Systems
  • Cloud Computing & Systems for Machine Learning

Submission

Submissions must be in the form of a single PDF file prepared using Springer’s LNCS style file https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs.

ALGOCLOUD 2022 asks for the following types of submissions:

[A. REGULAR PAPERS] Authors are invited to submit high-quality manuscripts reporting original unpublished research in the topics related to the symposium. A regular paper submission should clearly motivate the importance of the problem being addressed, discuss prior work and its relationship to the paper, explicitly and precisely state the paper’s key contributions, and outline the key technical ideas and methods used to achieve the main results. A regular paper submission should not exceed 12 pages including title page and abstract, but excluding references and an optional appendix. Authors should include all necessary details in their submission so that the Technical Program Committee (TPC) can judge correctness, importance and originality of their work. Any material (e.g., proofs or experimental results) omitted (from the main part of 12 pages) due to space limitations, can be put into the optional appendix which will be read at the Program Committee’s discretion. Regular papers will be allotted up to 20 pages in the proceedings.

[B. SHORT PAPERS] A short paper submission may present work-in-progress on a specific topic, or work appeared elsewhere (but is worth publicizing it in the symposium), or a demonstration of a system or library, or an experience/use-case paper, or a vision paper. Authors should clearly motivate the importance of their contribution, discuss prior work and its relationship to the paper, and in general provide sufficient details in their submission so that the TPC can judge the quality and importance of their work. A short paper submission should be at least 2 and at most 8 pages. Short papers will be allotted up to 8 pages in the proceedings.

[C. SURVEY PAPERS] A survey paper submission concerns the write-up of a high-quality survey paper on an emerging hot topic. Authors are asked to submit a proposal for the survey between 5 and 10 pages, that clearly motivates the importance of the topic and contains the structure of the survey paper along with the most important references that will be critically reviewed and presented. If the proposal is accepted, then authors will be given sufficient time (until end of October 2022) to prepare the full version of their survey paper that needs to pass a quality control check by the TPC, in order to be finally accepted and appear in the proceedings. Survey papers will be allotted up to 40 pages in the proceedings.

All papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submission system at:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=algocloud2022

By submitting a paper the authors acknowledge that, in case of acceptance, at least one of the authors will register to ALGO/ALGOCLOUD 2022 and present the paper (this holds for all types of papers, including accepted survey proposals). Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ instructions and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each accepted paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made. Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are available in Overleaf . Accepted papers will be included in the post-proceedings published by Springer in its Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

Awards

Awards will be given to the best regular paper and the best student regular paper. A regular paper is eligible for the best student paper award if at least one of the authors is a full-time student (Bachelor, Master, or Ph.D.) at the time of submission and the student(s) must have made a major contribution to the paper. The TPC may decide to decline or to split the awards. Awards are sponsored by Springer.
