18th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing

 (IEEE/ACM CCGrid 2018)*

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. The 18th Annual IEEE/ACM International Symposium in Cluster, Cloud, and Grid Computing (CCGrid 2018) 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. In 2018, CCGrid will be held in Washington, DC, USA.
