Workshop on Adaptive Resource Management and Scheduling for Cloud Computing, ARMS-CC 2014

Paris, France, July 15th, 2014

Held in conjunction with ACM Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing
PODC 2014 (July 15-19, 2014)


We have a great pleasure to invite you to participate in the ARMS-CC 2014, Workshop on Adaptive Resource Management and Scheduling for Cloud Computing. ARMS-CC will be held in Paris, France, from July 15th, 2014.

Cloud Computing concerns large-scale interconnected systems and it has the main purpose to aggregate and to efficient exploit the power of widely distributed resources. Resource Management and Task Scheduling play an essential role, in cases where one is concerned with optimized use of resources. The ubiquitous networks are highly dynamic distributed systems so the changes in overlay are frequent. On the other hand, the Cloud systems are highly dynamic in its structure because the user requests must be respected as an agreement rule. When ubiquitous networks become clients for Cloud systems new algorithm for events and tasks scheduling and new methods for resource management should be designed in order to increase the performance of such systems. The adaptive methods used in context are oriented on: self-stabilizing, self-organizing and autonomic systems; dynamic, adaptive and machine learning based distributed algorithms; fault tolerance, reliability, availability of distributed systems.

The mission of the first edition of ARMS-CC workshop is to bring together researchers, engineers, and practitioners involved in the development of new resource management methods, scheduling algorithms, and middleware tools for Cloud Computing. The goal is to provide an interactive and friendly yet professional forum for original research contributions describing novel ideas, groundbreaking results or quantified system experiences, in the context of PODC Symposium. The work presented in ARMS-CC workshop can report and summarise on previous work, present early new results or put forward new and outrageous ideas.

ARMS-CC workshop is organized in the context of PHC Bilateral Research Project: SideSTEP – Scheduling Methods for Dynamic Distributed Systems: a self-* approach, ID: PN-II-CT-RO-FR-2012-1-0084.

Call for Papers

You are invited to submit a paper containing unpublished original work for the ARMS-CC 2014 Workshop. We would like to especially encourage submissions from young scientists (postdocs, PhD students, master students supervised by a senior researchers and involved in research projects).
