New Date: November 2-5, 2020 Melbourne, Victoria, Australia


1) CRC submission deadline is: March 15, 2020.

2) New Registration Deadline is April 20, 2020.

3) Due to COVID-19 spread implications, many countries around the world have put travel bans. Therefore, we have postponed the CCGrid 2020 conference to November 2020 month. Thank you for your understanding and support. We look forward to welcome you all to Melbourne in November 2020. Take care. Best wishes, Raj (on behalf of the CCGrid 2020 Organizing Team

4) Due to the postponement of the conference, many attendees might have several questions related to their registration. Please follow the following guidelines regarding this:

4.1. All attendees need to register, the rescheduled conference dates will be published soon.

4.2. Each accepted paper should have at least one AUTHOR registration.

4.3. There is NO cancellation of registration even if we allow your presentation online for some authors (depending on Australian Govt travel rules at the time of the conference).

4.4. No cancellation of registration as per the policy. (As a special consideration, if you are a NOT an author of accepted work, you can nominate a replacement person, he/she can attend in your place).


The CCGrid symposium series serves as a major international forum for presenting and sharing recent research accomplishments and technological developments in the field of Cluster, Cloud and Internet computing.

The first CCGrid Conference started in Brisbane, Australia, in 2001. Since then, the conference has successfully been hosted around the world. Returning back to its originating country, the 20th International conference is going to be held in Melbourne, Australia.

Tremendous advances in processing, communication and systems/middle-ware technologies are leading to new paradigms and platforms for computing, ranging from computing Clusters to widely distributed Clouds and emerging Internet computing paradigms such as Fog/Edge Computing for Internet of Things (IoT)/Big Data applications. 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 challenge featuring live demonstrations and the ICFEC 2020 conference.

In 2020, CCGrid will return to Melbourne, Australia, to celebrate its 20th anniversary. CCGrid 2020 will have a special focus on three important issues that are significantly influencing all aspects of Cluster, Cloud, and Internet computing: Adaptive Elastic Computing, Green Computing, and Cyber-Physical Computing. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Internet Computing Frontiers: Edge, Fog, Serverless, Lambda, Streaming, etc.
    More decentralized approaches to cloud computing. Edge/fog/mist computing, sensor data streaming and computation on the edges of the network. Function as a Service (Faas), Backend as a Service (BaaS), serverless computing, lambda computing.
  • Architecture, Networking, Data Centers
    Service oriented architectures. Utility computing models. IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, *aaS paradigms. Service composition and orchestration. Micro-datacenter, cloudlet, edge, or fog computing infrastructure. Virtualized hardware: GPUs, tensor processing units, FPGAs.
  • Storage and I/O Systems
    Distributed storage, cloud storage, Storage as a Service, data locality techniques for in-memory processing, storage in the edge.
  • Programming Models and Runtime Systems
    Programming models, languages, systems and tools/environments. Virtualization, containers, and middleware technologies. Actors, agents, programming decentralized computing systems.
  • Resource Management and Scheduling
    Resource allocation algorithms, profiling, modeling. Cluster, cloud, and internet computing scheduling and meta-scheduling techniques.
  • Performance Modelling and Evaluation
    Performance models. Monitoring and evaluation tools. Analysis of system/application performance.
  • Cyber-Security and Privacy
    Cloud security and trust. Access control. Data privacy and integrity. Regulation.
  • Sustainable and Green Computing
