ALGOCLOUD 2017 -- Call for Papers

[Please accept our apologies if you received multiple copies of this call]

Submission Deadline: June 23, 2017


3rd International Workshop on Algorithmic Aspects of Cloud Computing (ALGOCLOUD 2017)

co-located with ALGO 2017

September 4th - 5th, 2017 – Vienna, Austria


ALGOCLOUD ( is the international forum bringing together international researchers, students, and practitioners to present research activities and results on topics related to algorithmic, design, and development aspects of modern cloud-based systems. ALGOCLOUD is co-located with the ALGO conference (, a leading international meeting of researchers working in algorithms and their engineering.

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 elastic system developments, as well as experience/use-case articles. Contributions may span a wide range of algorithms for modeling, practices for constructing and techniques for evaluating operations and services in a variety of systems, including but not limited to, virtualized infrastructures, cloud platforms, datacenters, cloud-storage options, cloud data management, non-traditional key-value stores on the cloud, HPC architectures, etc.

***Keynote Speaker: Prof. Babak Falsafi (EPFL, Switzerland) ***
