The ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing 2020 (SoCC \’20) is the eleventh in an established series of symposia that bring together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners interested in cloud computing. SoCC is co-sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Groups on Management of Data (SIGMOD) and on Operating Systems (SIGOPS).
SoCC will be held at the Hyatt Regency Lake Washington at Seattle\’s Southport, in Renton, WA, to foster connections between the academic and industrial communities operating in the cloud space.
The ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing 2020 (SoCC \’20) acknowledges and values all dimensions of diversity by cultivating an environment built on tolerance and mutual respect. We actively promote inclusion in every aspect of the symposium including but not limited to organization and program committees and conference activities. We encourage the participation of all individuals regardless of age, gender, gender identity, race, cultural background, religion, physical and mental ability, sexual orientation, parental and marital status, etc. We actively denounce and combat prejudice and stereotyping, and will follow the ACM Policy Against Harassment, embracing ACM processes for Reporting Unacceptable Behavior.
Please follow this webpage for updates on the steps we are taking to create a diverse and inclusive environment during the conference. As we embark in this journey of continued (un)learning we will misstep. Your ideas and feedback can help us find our way towards a healthier and more welcoming community. You may contact SoCC D&I Chair, Karla Saur (Karla.Saur@microsoft.com), with suggestions, comments, or complaints about our work in this area.
The annual ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing (SoCC’20) brings together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners interested in cloud computing. ACM SoCC’20 is the 11th edition of the premier conference on cloud computing; it is the only conference co-sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Groups on Management of Data (SIGMOD) and on Operating Systems (SIGOPS). SoCC will be held in Seattle, Washington, to foster connections between the academic and industrial communities operating in the cloud space. We solicit original contributions on all aspects of cloud computing. We particularly encourage submissions on the research, development, practice, and experience of cloud computing systems and data management. Specific topics of interest include but are not limited to the following, when related to the cloud:
Administration and Manageability
Cross Datacenter Data Management
Data Services Architectures
Distributed and Parallel Query Processing
Edge Computing and 5G
Energy Efficiency and Management
Fault Tolerance, High Availability, and Reliability
Large Scale Cloud Applications
Services and Systems for Machine Learning
Machine Learning for Systems
Networking, SDNs, Network Virtualization
Operating Systems for the Cloud
Platform for Services
Privacy of Data and Computation
Provisioning and Metering
Scientific Data Management
Security of Infrastructure and Services
Service Level Agreements
Storage Systems and New Technologies
Tracing and Monitoring Systems for the Cloud
Virtualization, Containers, VMs
Authors can submit a paper in one of the following categories:
Research Papers describe original research, where novelty is a primary consideration.
Industry and System Papers describe existing, often deployed systems, where the lessons from the experience are a primary consideration.
Vision Papers describe speculative but well-reasoned and thought-provoking ideas, where insight is a primary consideration.
Submissions will be judged based on their originality, technical merit, relevance, value to the community, and likelihood of producing interesting discussions at the symposium. Submissions will be kept confidential until accepted. Rejected submissions will be kept confidential permanently.
As a special type of Research Paper, we call for Negative Result Papers describing promising and innovative ideas that didn’t work upon rigorous evaluation. The primary considerations when reviewing these papers will be the novelty and conceptual validity of the idea and the quality of the evaluation.
