July 12, 2011 -- The International Workshop on Cloud Computing and Scientific Applications (CCSA) has been formed to promote research and development activities focused on enabling and scaling scientific applications using distributed computing paradigms, such as cluster, Grid, and Cloud Computing. With the rapid emergence of software systems and their applicability, the volume of users are growing exponentially. User requirements are getting more and more complex. Existing computing infrastructure, software system designs, and use cases will have to take into account the enormity in volume of requests, size of data, computing load, locality and type of users, and so forth.
Cloud computing promises reliable services delivered through next-generation data centers that are built on compute and storage virtualization technologies. Users will be able to access applications and data from a “Cloud” anywhere in the world on demand. In other words, the Cloud appears to be a single point of access for all the computing needs of users. The users are assured that the Cloud infrastructure is robust and will always be available at any time.
CCSA brings together researchers and practitioners from around the world to share their experiences on modeling, executing, and monitoring scientific applications on Clouds.
In this workshop, we are interested in receiving innovative work on enabling and scaling computing systems to support the execution of scientific applications. The target audience include researchers and industry practitioners who are interested in distributed systems, particularly focusing on scaling of applications using Cloud computing.
Topics of Interest:
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Enabling applications using distributed systems
- Architectural Models for scaling of applications
- Novel applications for cloud computing, including games and social networks
- Novel cloud programming models
- Innovative cloud service models
- Support for scalable and elastic cloud services
- Cloud support for mobile applications and Content Delivery Networks
- Reliability of applications and services running on the cloud
- Performance monitoring for cloud applications
- Cloud use-case studies
- Scientific computing in the cloud
- Business computing in the cloud
- Social computing in the cloud
All papers must be submitted electronically and in PDF format by email to:
The material presented should be original and not published or under submission elsewhere. Authors should submit full papers of up to 6 pages, strictly following the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscript style (available at http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting) using two-column, single-space format, with 10-point font size. Figures and references must be included in the 6 pages. The committee will automatically reject oversized papers. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register early to attend the conference, in order for the paper to appear in the conference proceedings.
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. The proceedings will be published and will be made online through the IEEE Xplore.

10/30/2013 | Cray, DDN, Mellanox, NetApp, ScaleMP, Supermicro, Xyratex | Creating data is easy… the challenge is getting it to the right place to make use of it. This paper discusses fresh solutions that can directly increase I/O efficiency, and the applications of these solutions to current, and new technology infrastructures.
10/01/2013 | IBM | A new trend is developing in the HPC space that is also affecting enterprise computing productivity with the arrival of “ultra-dense” hyper-scale servers.
Ken Claffey, SVP and General Manager at Xyratex, presents ClusterStor at the Vendor Showdown at ISC13 in Leipzig, Germany.
Join HPCwire Editor Nicole Hemsoth and Dr. David Bader from Georgia Tech as they take center stage on opening night at Atlanta's first Big Data Kick Off Week, filmed in front of a live audience. Nicole and David look at the evolution of HPC, today's big data challenges, discuss real world solutions, and reveal their predictions. Exactly what does the future holds for HPC?
