The 11th IEEE International Scalable Computing Challenge (SCALE 2018)

The objective of the 11th IEEE International Scalable Computing Challenge (SCALE 2018) contest is on end­-to-­end problem solving using concepts, technologies, and architectures (including Clusters, Grids, and Clouds) that facilitate scaling. Participants in the challenge will be expected to identify significant current real-­world problems where scalable computing techniques can be effectively used, and design, implement, evaluate, and demonstrate solutions. SCALE 2018 is co-located with IEEE/ACM CCGrid 2018, taking place May 1-4, 2018, in Washington, D.C.

Teams are invited to submit papers outlining the problem addressed and the technologies employed to enable applications to scale. Participation from students and young researchers, especially in leadership roles, is strongly encouraged.

Abstract submissions are due March 1, 2018, and the deadline for submitting proposals is March 8, 2018. Submission details and an EasyChair link can be found here:
