The 15th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing (IEEE/ACM CCGrid 2015)

May 4-7, 2015
Shenzhen, China

Rapid advances in architectures, networks, and systems and middleware technologies are leading to new concepts and platforms for computing, ranging from Clusters and Grids to Clouds and Datacenters. The 15th Annual IEEE/ACM International Symposium in Cluster, Cloud, and Grid Computing (CCGrid 2015) 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 and 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 2015, CCGrid will return to China and be held in Shenzhen (深圳) in the Pearl River Delta, China's fifth largest city. The main conference will be held on May 5-7, 2015, with affiliated workshops taking place on May 4, 2015.

All papers presented at the main conference, workshops, poster session (for proceedings posters), doctoral symposium, and SCALE challenge of IEEE/ACM CCGrid 2015 will be submitted to IEEE Xplore for publication and EI indexing.
