[DMANET] ALGOCLOUD 2017 -- Call for Papers

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) ***

- Algorithmic aspects of elasticity

- Search and retrieval algorithms for cloud infrastructures

- Scale-up and -out for NoSQL and columnar databases

Accepted papers will be included in the post-proceedings in the Lecture
Notes in Computer Science by Springer-Verlag


Submissions must have a length of up to 12 pages in LNCS format
(excluding references and an optional appendix to be read at the
discretion of the Program Committee).
