Call for Posters and Demos

The 15th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing, 2015 (CCGrid) provides a forum for both academia and industry professionals to present their latest research findings in all aspects of cluster, cloud, and grid technologies in the form of a poster or demo, both of which will be included in the conference proceedings. Posters and demos will be presented during the same session, during the conference. Additionally, authors may submit posters for publication on the web.

All papers presented at poster session (for proceedings posters) of IEEE/ACM CCGrid 2015 will be submitted to IEEE Xplore for publication and EI indexing.


Posters can be submitted through Submissions must be received by Januray 30, 2015 (extended to February 6, see below for other important dates).

See “Types of Posters” below for details on the exact materials that authors must submit to be considered for the conference’s poster/demo session.


The topics of interest are the same as in the Call for Papers.


Participants submitting proceedings-published papers/demos are required to submit a short paper, 4 pages, describing the content, the research supporting it, and the relevance and importance to the cluster, cloud, and grid computing community. If accepted, this short paper will be published in the proceedings of the conference.

Participants submitting web-published papers are required to submit a short 1-page extended abstract. These abstracts will not be included in the conference proceedings.

Upon acceptance, you will prepare a poster (be it proceedings-published or web-published) to be displayed at the conference along with any demo you would like to showcase. All accepted posters will be posted on the conference website.


The authors of selected posters will be allotted short speaking slots to present their work at the CCGrid Poster Session. The students will also present their posters and talk one-on-one with the attendees in the poster exhibition session. Please bring a poster of recommended size A1 (594mm by 841mm, portrait) to the venue.


This year CCGrid will be offering an award recognizing the best research poster presented at the conference. During the poster session your poster will be reviewed by a judging panel selected from the conference organizing and program committee. Your poster will be judged based on the novelty, quality of research undertaken and clarity of presentation. The Best Poster will receive $200.


A number of student travel awards, pending on US NSF final approval, will be available for attendees of posters and demos.



Submitted manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may not exceed 4 (proceedings published) or 1 (web published) letter size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references using the IEEE format for conference proceedings. For the final camera-ready version, authors with accepted papers may purchase up to two additional pages at the following rates: 100 USD for each page. See formatting templates for details: Demo submissions may include an additional 1-page appendix describing the specific contents of the demo that conference attendees would see. Any special technical requirements for the demo should also be described in this appendix. The contents of this appendix will be used to evaluate whether the demo is a good fit for CCGrid 2015, but will not be included in the proceedings.
