ScienceCloud 2012
3rd Workshop on Scientific Cloud Computing

Co-located with
ACM Symposium on High-Performance, Parallel & Distributed Computing (HPDC)
Delft, The Nederlands
June 18th, 2012
*** Call for Papers ***
The 3rd workshop on Scientific Cloud Computing (ScienceCloud), co-located
with HPDC 2012, provides a dedicated forum for the scientific community
to discuss new research, development, and deployment efforts in running
scientific computing workloads on cloud Computing platforms. The workshop
will focus on the use of cloud-based technologies to meet new compute
intensive and data intensive scientific challenges that are not well
served by the current supercomputers, grids and HPC clusters.

The workshop aims to address questions such as: What architectural
changes to the current cloud frameworks (hardware, OS, networking and/or
programming models) are needed to support science? Dynamic information
derived from remote instruments and coupled simulation, and sensor
ensembles that stream data for realtime analysis are important emerging
techniques in scientific and cyber-physical systems. How can cloud
technologies enable and adapt to these new scientific approaches dealing
with dynamism? How are scientists using clouds? Are there scientific
workloads that are suitable candidates to take advantage of emerging cloud
computing resources with high efficiency? Commercial public clouds provide
easy access to cloud infrastructure for scientists. What are the gaps in
commercial cloud offerings and how can they be adapted for running existing
and novel eScience applications? What are the benefits of adopting a cloud
model, over clusters, grids, or supercomputers? What factors are limiting
clouds use or would make them more usable/efficient?

This workshop encourages interaction and cross-pollination between those
developing applications, algorithms, software, hardware and networking,
emphasizing scientific computing for such cloud platforms. We believe that
it will be an excellent place to help the community define the current
state, determine future goals, and define architectures and services for
future science clouds.

*** Topics of Interest ***
We invite the submission of original work that is related to the topics
below. The papers can be either short (5 pages) position papers, or full
(10 pages) research papers. Topics of interest, in the context of clouds,
- Scientific application cases studies on cloud infrastructure
- Performance evaluation of cloud environments and technologies
- Fault tolerance and reliability in cloud system
- Data-intensive workloads and tools on clouds
- Use of programming models such as Map-Reduce and its implementations
- Storage cloud architectures
- I/O and Data management in the cloud
- Workflow and resource management in the cloud
- Use of cloud technologies (e.g., NoSQL databases, etc) for scientific
- Data streaming and dynamic applications on clouds
- Application of cloud concepts in HPC environments
- High performance parallel file systems and interconnects in virtual
- Research and best practices in cloud security
