Workshop on Adaptive Resource Management and
Scheduling for Cloud Computing, ARMS-CC 2015

Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain, July 20th, 2015

Held in conjunction with ACM Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing
PODC 2015 (July 21-23, 2015)


In the new visions for cloud computing, accelerating business process, increasing providers’ profits, reducing the price for end-users became imperative strategies of development. As computing and data storage needs grow exponentially, increasing the size of data centers brings important diseconomies of scale. Large-scale interconnected systems aim to aggregate and efficient exploit the power of widely distributed resources. In this context, Cloud Computing has the potential to be the major solution for scalability, mobility, reliability, fault tolerance and security for business and academic environments in the same time. Cloud Computing became a suitable platform for Big Data processing and storage by embedding the major emerging trends at the research level and the technological level.

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 (SLA) and ensure QoS. 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.

Following the success of last years first ARMS-CC held in Paris, the second edition of ARMS-CC workshop aims at providing a venue for 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.

So, we have a great pleasure to invite you to participate in the ARMS-CC 2015, Workshop on Adaptive Resource Management and Scheduling for Cloud Computing, held in conjunction with PODC 2015, Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain, July 20th, 2015.

Call for Papers

You are invited to submit a paper containing unpublished original work for the ARMS-CC 2015 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).
