Tremendous advances in processing, communication and systems/middleware technologies are leading to new paradigms and platforms for computing, ranging from computing Clusters to widely distributed Grid and emerging Clouds. CCGrid is a series of very successful conferences, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) and ACM, with the overarching goal of bringing together international researchers, developers, and users and to provide an international forum to present leading research activities and results on a broad range of topics related to these platforms and paradigms and their applications. The conference features keynotes, technical presentations, posters, workshops, tutorials, as well as the SCALE challenges featuring live demonstrations.
In 2010, CCGrid will return to Australia, to Melbourne, to celebrate its 10th anniversary. CCGrid 2010 will have a special focus on three important and immediate issues that are significantly influencing all aspects of Cluster, Cloud and Grid computing: Economics, Environment and Autonomics. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Paradigms and Technologies:
System architectures, Design and deployment; Programming models, language, systems and tools/environments; Virtualization; Middleware technologies; Volunteer Computing.
Service oriented architectures; Utility computing models; *aaS paradigm; Service composition and orchestration
Environment friendly computing ecosystems; Hardware/software/application energy efficiency; Power and cooling; Thermal/power awareness
- Autonomic Management:
Self-* behaviors, models and technologies; Autonomic paradigms and approaches (control-based, bio-inspired, emergent, etc.); Bio-inspired approaches to management; SLA definition and enforcement;
- Economic Aspects:
Utility models and computing economies; Economic-based models and approaches.
- Monitoring and Evaluation:
Performance models; Monitoring and evaluation tools, Analysis of system/application performance; Benchmarks and testbeds.
- Security and Trust:
Cloud/Grid security and trust; Access control; Data privacy and integrity; Regulation.
- Applications and Experiences:
Applications to real and complex problems in science, engineering, business and society; User studies; Experiences with large-scale deployments systems or applications.
