[DMANET] ALGOCLOUD 2018 - 2nd call for papers


4th International Symposium on Algorithmic Aspects of Cloud Computing

co-located with ALGO 2018

20-21 August 2018 – Helsinki, Finland

Submission Deadline: June 24, 2018


ALGOCLOUD (http://algo2018.hiit.fi/algocloud/) is an annual international
forum 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.
ALGOCLOUD 2018 is co-located with the ALGO 2018 congress (http://algo2018.hiit.fi),
a leading international event 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.


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

- Distributed Algorithms and Mechanisms
- Algorithms, Data Structures and Computation
- Data Science, and Machine Learning
- Big Data Analytics and Deep Learning
- Networking, Routing, and Protocols
- Caching and Load Balancing
- Resource Management and Elasticity
- Search&Retrieval and Graph Exploration
- Privacy and Anonymization Approaches
- Privacy Preserving Record Linkage
- Scale-up and -out for NoSQL and columnar databases
- Analysis of containerized applications
- Cloud deployment tools and their analysis
- Query languages and novel programming models
- Data structures and algorithms for eventually-consistent stores
- Scalable access structures and indexing for cloud data-stores
- NoSQL and schema-less data modeling and integration
- Consistency, replication and partitioning CAP
- Transactional models and algorithms for cloud data-stores


Accepted papers will be included in the post-proceedings published by Springer
it its Lecture Notes in Computer Science series


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.

Papers should be submitted electronically via the Easy Chair Submission
system (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=algocloud18).

By submitting a paper the authors acknowledge that in case of acceptance
at least one of the authors must register and attend ALGO 2018 and/or
ALGOCLOUD 2018, and present the paper.
