The Organization Committee (OC) is committed to ALGO 2020 and aware of the pandemic situation for the COVID-19 outbreak, announced by the World Health Organization. As already happened for other conferences, the OC is preparing backup plans such as moving the events or (partially) running them in a virtual way. What is most important is that the scientific activity of the Programme Committees of the ALGO conferences is not suspended or stopped: peer review, accepted papers, camera ready and proceedings will be accomplished as usual. As for the talks and the participation, the health and safety of our community is our priority: attending and giving the talks will be safe, and virtual presence will be possible in case of remaining safety concerns or travel restrictions.

Scope

ALGOCLOUD is an annual international symposium aiming to tackle the diverse new topics in the emerging area of algorithmic aspects of computing and data management in modern cloud-based systems (which are broadly defined so as to include edge- and fog-based systems, cloudlets, cloud micro-services, as well as virtualization environments).

ALGOCLOUD aims at 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 2020 is co-located with ALGO 2020, a leading international event of researchers working on algorithms and their engineering.

Important Dates

  • Abstract registration deadline: April 15, 2020
  • Paper submission deadline: April 22, 2020
  • Conference: September 9 - 10, 2020, in Pisa, Italy

Call for Papers

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

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

  • Analysis of Algorithms and Data Structures
  • Resource Management and Scheduling
  • Data Center and Infrastructure Management
  • Privacy, Security and Anonymization
  • Cloud-based Applications
  • Virtualization and Containers
  • Performance Models
  • Cloud deployment tools and their analysis
  • Novel programming models
  • Storage management
  • Fog and Edge Computing
  • Economic models and Pricing
  • Energy and Power Management
  • Big Data and the Cloud
  • Network Management and Techniques
  • Caching and Load Balancing
  • Machine Learning Techniques on Edge, Fog, Cloud

Submission

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 EasyChair Submission system. By submitting a paper the authors acknowledge that in case of acceptance at least one of the authors must register and attend ALGO 2020 and/or ALGOCLOUD 2020, and present the paper.

Proceedings

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