The poster session and the panel "New Generation Cloud Computing: Challenges and Future Directions” will be supported by the ARRANGE-ICT project (ERASMUS+).
ARRANGE-ICT: Partnership for addressing Megatrends in ICT. ARRANGE-ICT is focused on identifying and recording mega trends developments as raised form market innovators in order to help HEIs (Higher Education Institutions) follow the rapid pace of emerging industries.
Participants will have the opportunity to win one of four prizes (hard drives worth €100 each). Do remember to include your name at the registration time to participate in this draw. The winners (after random draw) will be announced at the end of the panel.
Advances in architectures, networks, systems and middleware technologies are leading to new concepts and platforms for computing, ranging from Clusters and Grids to Clouds and Datacenters, and result in an outstanding impact to numerous aspects of the modern world. The 19th Annual IEEE/ACM International Symposium in Cluster, Cloud, and Grid Computing (CCGrid 2019) is a forum bringing together international researchers, developers, and practitioners to present leading research activities and results on a broad range of topics related to these concepts, platforms, and their applications. The conference features keynotes, technical presentations, workshops, and posters, as well as the Doctoral Symposium and the SCALE challenge featuring live demonstrations. CCGrid has travelled over the world. Its next stop is in beautiful Larnaca, Cyprus, in May 2019.
The Republic of Cyprus is a European Union member state and a major financial, business, tourist, and educational hub in the Eastern Mediterranean. For millennials, Cyprus has been at the cross-roads of major civilizations. At present times, it combines a modern European culture with ancient enchantment and world-class tourist and archaeological attractions. One of the safest countries in the world, Cyprus epitomizes the ideal weather of the Mediterranean with sunny days and fine temperatures almost every day throughout the year. Larnaca, the city where CCGrid 2019 will take place, is the location of the island’s major international airport with daily direct connections to major hubs (Athens, London, Vienna, Tel Aviv, Cairo, Dubai, Abu Dhabi etc.). Larnaca features blue-flag beaches and seaside promenades, a modern marina, and various archaeological attractions with Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman antiquities.
Topics of Interest
CCGrid 2019 will have a focus on important and immediate issues that are significantly influencing all aspects of cluster, cloud, grid and edge computing.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
