Authors are invited to submit their research work as a poster (proceedings published and web published) to the CCGrid 2012 conference. CCGrid aims at presenting the latest breakthroughs in Cluster, Grid and Cloud technologies for both academic and industry professionals. The submission areas of interest match that of the conference, and include the following areas:

  • Cloud Computing
  • Cluster technologies
  • Grid Architectures and Systems
  • Utility Computing Models for Clusters and Grids
  • Grid Economies and Service Architectures
  • Service Composition and Orchestration
  • Middleware for Clusters and Grids
  • Parallel and Wide-Area File Systems
  • Peer-to-Peer Systems
  • Community and collaborative computing networks
  • Grid Trust and Security
  • Support for Autonomic Grid Infrastructure
  • Resource Management
  • Scheduling and Load Balancing
  • Programming Models, Tools, and Environments
  • Performance Evaluation and Modeling
  • Grid-based Problem Solving Environments
  • Scientific, Engineering, and Commercial Applications

Posters can be submitted in one of two ways:

  1. Proceedings published posters: Participants submitting proceedings published posters are required to submit upto 2 pages short paper describing the poster content, research, relevance and importance to the cluster, grid and cloud computing community. If accepted, these 2 pages short paper will be published in the proceedings of the conference.
  2. Web published posters: These posters require a short 1-page abstract to be submitted. These abstracts will not be included in the conference proceedings, but will be published on the conference website.

For both forms of posters, participants will be able to display the poster during the conference. Important dates and guidelines for poster submission can be found below:
