IEEE CCEM 2021

TENTH IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CLOUD COMPUTING IN EMERGING MARKETS

08.00 AM - 01.00 PM EDT, 27th-30th of October, 2021

Virtual Conference. Hosted from New Jersey, USA

CCEM Overview

Conference Scope

The Tenth IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing in Emerging Markets (CCEM) continues the highly successful CCEM conference series which was originally launched in 2012. This year the event is a virtual conference hosted from New Jersey, USA.

Cloud computing has emerged as a dominant and transformational paradigm in information technology over the last few years and is beginning to effect a multitude of industries such as government, finance, telecommunications, education, retail, energy and utilities, and transportation. Research in this field has become very active and spans a number of areas including virtualization, networking, storage, security, management of cloud services, efficient cloud architectures, massive multi-tenancy, and design of cloud applications and services. Cloud computing continues to be the way of the future and many studies indicate that more than 50% of all information technology will be in this new paradigm within the next five to ten years. This transformation has great implications for emerging markets which have the potential to leap frog mature markets in their adoption of cloud computing, combine cloud computing and mobile technologies to introduce unique services that can transform the lives of billions, drive a much larger scale of adoption and challenge existing price points, while presenting unique challenges in areas such as security and user interfaces to cloud computing.

The goal

This research driven innovation conference has established itself as a unique conference that combines top notch peer-reviewed research papers (acceptance rate less than 10%), invited talks from renowned industry and government leaders, posters and demos showcasing latest innovations, a startup showcase highlighting the vibrant and fast growing business ecosystem around cloud, tutorials on cutting edge topics, and a doctoral symposium featuring some of the deep research topics being pursued by academic leaders.

Conference Format

The conference will be a two-day event that spans invited talks, peer reviewed paper presentations, tutorials,technology showcase followed by panel discussion.

    Call for Technical Research Papers:

    We invite Research papers submissions on all topics relevant to Cloud Computing in Emerging Markets as listed above. Papers should typically include a clear description of the problem being addressed, overview of and comparison to related work, the theoretical framework/model proposed by the authors, experimentation details and the experimental results, and conclusions. Papers will be reviewed by an international program committee which will ensure that only high-quality papers with originality and novelty are accepted for presentation in the conference.

    The Papers can be either
    • A full research paper of maximum 8 pages with complete and substantial research outcomes.
    • A short research paper of 4 pages that is complete but discussing a limited contribution.

    The short paper track also provides authors to present good engineering work or negative results that will otherwise not qualify to meet the stringent guidelines of a full research paper.

    Please submit your Technical Research Papers, via Easychair for CCEM 2021 EasyChair

    Please follow the paper/proposal template mandatorily as mentioned in the above template. The selected full and short research papers will be published as part of the conference proceedings which can be indexed through IEEE Xplore. The conference will publicly announce the following awards.
