Scalability is a primary consideration in the design and implementation of computing and communication systems. The rapid increase in the volume of information that needs to be processed by computers necessitates new architectures, software, algorithms, and tools to improve scalability.
ScalCom-12 aims at providing an international forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss original ideas on all aspects of scalability in computing. ScalCom-12 (http://cse.stfx.ca/~scalcom2012/) is soliciting original, previously unpublished work addressing research challenges and presenting advances in the design and implementation of scalable computing and communication systems.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Ÿ Scalable modeling and simulation
Ÿ Data intensive computing
Ÿ Multi-core and computer architectures
Ÿ Cluster, Grid and Cloud computing
Ÿ Scalable algorithms
Ÿ Scalable networks:
Ÿ Scalable service computing
Ÿ Scalable databases
The conference proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society. Selected papers from the proceedings will be invited for publication in journal special issues.
Workshop proposals: Ongoing as received
Submission deadline: July 01, 2012
Author Notification: Aug 10, 2012
Final Manuscript Due: Aug 31, 2012
Paper Submission Guidelines
All papers must be submitted electronically and in PDF format. The material presented should be original and not published or under submission elsewhere. Authors should submit full papers of up to 8 pages, following strictly the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscript style, using two-column, single-space format, with 10-point font size. Figures and references must be included in the 8 pages. Oversized papers will be automatically rejected by the PC chairs. 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.
