CCGrid 2012 — The 12th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing
May 13-16, 2012, Ottawa, Canada – Delta Ottawa City Centre Hotel, 101 Lyon Street, Ottawa
CCGrid Doctoral Symposium 2012
The Doctoral Symposium of the IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing (CCGrid) provides a forum for students in the areas of scalable Clusters, widely distributed Grids and emerging Clouds to obtain feedback and advice on their Ph.D. dissertation topics and research career. The specific goals of the Symposium are to provide advice to students for a successful thesis completion, to enable students to evaluate their research in the context of global trends, and to engender fruitful interactions and networking between student researchers at a similar stage in their careers.
Selected students will present their work in front of an audience that consists of both their peers and a committee of expert researchers. The program committee consists of experts in the field, which provide their valuable feedback to the ongoing research work of participating students. They will also have the option to display their work as a poster.
The symposium is open to all Ph.D. students carrying out research on topics related to the CCGrid symposium interest areas. Example topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Notification of acceptance: February 13th, 2012
Camera-ready submission: March 9th, 2012
Each submission needs to have a Ph.D. student as the sole author or as the primary author with his/her thesis advisor(s) as co-authors. Students must be officially enrolled in a Ph.D. Program at the time of submission. It is expected that they would have one to two years left in their candidature so that they have enough time to incorporate the suggestions made at the Symposium.
The submission should contain the following points:
The submissions will be limited to between 4 - 6 pages of double column text, using single spaced 10 point size type on Letter (8.5"x11"), following the IEEE Computer Society proceedings guidelines. The proceedings of the doctoral symposium will be published as part of the CCGrid 2012 proceedings, as well as in the IEEE Digital Library.
Submissions should be made electronically via the online submission site: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ccgridphd2012
