Call for Papers

The 22nd IEEE/ACM international Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Internet Computing (CCGrid 2022) is a leading forum to disseminate and discuss research activities and results on a broad range of topics in distributed systems, 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. The conference features keynotes, technical presentations, posters, workshops, tutorials, as well as the SCALE challenge featuring live demonstrations and the ICFEC 2022 conference.
