 IEEE Computer Society / Technical Committee on Scalable Computing / ACM

                       Submission deadline:
              * Nov 30, 2010 - main conference contributions

                       CALL FOR PAPERS


Advances in processing, communication and systems/middleware
technologies are leading to new paradigms and platforms for computing,
ranging from computing Clusters to widely distributed Grids and Clouds.
 Cluster computing continues to be a key resource for high-performance
computing, and a fundamental element in grid and cloud computing
deployments.  Grid computing has effectively addressed many integration,
security, and heterogeneity aspects arising from larger-scale virtual
organizations.  The cloud computing paradigm promises on-demand
scalability, reliability, and cost-effective high-performance.

CCGrid is a series of successful conferences, sponsored by the IEEE
Computer Society Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) and
ACM, with the overarching goal of bringing together international
researchers, developers, and users and to provide an international forum
to present leading research activities and results on a broad range of
topics related to these platforms and paradigms and their applications.
The conference features keynotes, technical presentations, posters,
workshops, tutorials, as well as the SCALE challenge featuring live

In 2011, CCGrid will return to the U.S.A., where it was last held in
2004.  CCGrid 2011 will have a special focus on four important and
immediate issues that are significantly influencing all aspects of
Cluster, Cloud and Grid computing: Adaptive Elastic Computing, Green
Computing, Virtualization, and GP-GPU Computing.  Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:

* Paradigms and Technologies: System architectures, Design and
deployment; Programming models, language, systems and
tools/environments; Virtualization; Middleware technologies; Volunteer
Computing; Enterprise, HPC, Hybrid Clouds; GP-GPU Computing

* Service-Orientation: Service oriented architectures; Utility computing
models; *aaS paradigm; Service composition and orchestration;

* Autonomic Management: Self-* behaviors, models and technologies;
Autonomic paradigms and approaches (control-based, bio-inspired,
emergent, etc.); Bio-inspired approaches to management; SLA definition
and enforcement; Adaptive elastic distributed computing

* Greening: Environment friendly computing ecosystems;
Hardware/software/application energy efficiency; Power and cooling;
Thermal/power awareness;

* Virtualization:  Virtual machine technologies; VM migration and
reconfiguration;  Virtual networks;  Virtual machine images and
optimization techniques;

* GP-GPU Computing:  Programming technology for General-Purpose GPU
Computing; Heterogeneous CPU/GPU computing;  GPU Grids and Clouds;

* Monitoring and Evaluation: Performance models; Monitoring and
evaluation tools; Analysis of system/application performance; Benchmarks
and testbeds; Workload characterization and modeling;

* Economic Aspects: Utility models and computing economies;
Economic-based models and approaches;

* Security and Trust: Cloud/Grid security and trust; Access control;
Data privacy and integrity; Regulation;

* Applications and Experiences: Applications to real and complex
problems in science, engineering, business, and society; User studies;
Support for social networks and massively multiplayer online games;

Authors are invited to submit papers electronically. Submitted
manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may not exceed
10 letter size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references
using the IEEE format for conference proceedings (print area of 6-1/2
inches (16.51 cm) wide by 8-7/8 inches (22.51 cm) high, two-column
format with columns 3-1/16 inches (7.85 cm) wide with a 3/8 inch (0.81
cm) space between them, single-spaced 10-point Times fully justified
text). Submissions not conforming to these guidelines may be returned
without review. Authors should submit the manuscript in PDF format and
make sure that the file will print on a printer that uses letter size
(8.5 x 11) paper. The official language of the meeting is English. All
manuscripts will be reviewed and will be judged on correctness,
originality, technical strength, significance, quality of presentation,
and interest and relevance to the conference attendees.

Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is
not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers
not following these guidelines will be rejected without review and
further action may be taken, including (but not limited to)
notifications sent to the heads of the institutions of the authors and
sponsors of the conference. Submissions received after the due date,
exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be
considered. Authors may contact the conference PC Chair for more
information. The proceedings will be published through the IEEE Computer
Society Press, USA and will be made online through the IEEE Digital Library.
