Call for Papers

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.


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.

We cordially invite you to submit your contribution to the Workshop on Adaptive Resource Management and Scheduling for Cloud Computing (ARMS-CC 2015).

The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to:

  • Foundational Models for Resource Management in Cloud
  • Distributed Scheduling Algorithms
  • Load-Balancing and Co-Allocation
  • Scalable Computing
  • Dynamic, Adaptive and Machine Learning based Distributed Algorithms
  • Self-* and Autonomous Cloud Systems
  • Cloud Composition, Federation, Bridging, and Bursting
  • Cloud Resource Virtualization and Composition
  • Fault Tolerance, Reliability, Availability of Cloud Systems
  • Cloud Workload Profiling and Deployment Control
  • Cloud Quality Management and Service Level Agreement (SLA)
  • High Performance Cloud Computing
  • Many-Task Computing
  • Mobile Cloud Computing
  • Green Cloud Computing
  • Robust Systems
  • Cloud Computing Techniques for Big Data
  • Resource Management in Big Data Platforms
  • Scheduling Algorithms for Big Data Processing

ARMS-CC workshop would be of interest to the PODC community because it highlights the consideration of self-* improvements, which is explicitly focused on resource utilization and combines local and global enforcement solutions, supports the estimation of resources needed, scalability, mobility, reliability, and fault tolerance.

Paper Submission

The full paper in PDF format will be submitted via EasyChair system. Papers are to be submitted electronically, following the guidelines available on the PODC conference web page. Authors unable to submit electronically should contact the program chairs to receive instructions.

Each submission must be in English, in PDF format, and begin with a cover page including: (1) the title, (2) the names and affiliations of all authors, (3) contact author’s email, address and telephone number, (4) a brief, one paragraph abstract of the paper. A regular submission must not exceed 15 single-column pages (excluding cover page and references). Additional necessary details may be included in a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the program committee.

ARMS-CC-2015 Post-Proceedings will be published by Springer. Papers will appear in a volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. The detailed LNCS author’s instruction and the related template files to be used with the most popular Document Composition tools (LaTeX, Microsoft Word, FrameMaker), are available at the following URL: The final paper MUST be formatted according to the above instructions and possibly using the templates and macros provided by Springer.

The program committee, potentially assisted by outside referees in limited cases, will do reviewing of full papers. We will assign in the first step two reviewers for a submission and, if we not have a clear decision we will designate an advocate.  The evaluation will be based on originality, scientific significance, technical soundness, and clarity of presentation. Accepted papers will be shepherded through an editorial review process by a member of the program committee.

Accepted submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication in a special issue for an international journal. The special issue will be announced before the workshop. Rejected submissions will be permanently treated as confidential.

By submitting a paper, the authors agree that at least one of them will attend the workshop to present it. This is the strong condition for a submission to be considered for publication in the special issue.


The registration for ARMS-CC will follow PODC registration rules.


ARMS-CC-2015 Post-Proceedings will be published by Springer. Papers will appear in a volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Please visit for more details.
