ACM SIGCOMM Workshop on Distributed Cloud Computing (DCC 2014)

Co-located with ACM SIGCOMM 2014 in Chicago, USA, August 2014

Technical Program

Many thanks to our sponsor


Workshop Goal

The DCC workshop is interdisciplinary and touches both distributed systems and networking aspects as well as cloud computing. We want to attract both industry relevant papers as well as papers from academic researchers working on the foundations of the distributed cloud.

DCC 2014 accepts high-quality papers related to the distributed cloud which fall into at least one of the following categories:

  • Novel ideas on how to design and operate/manage the distributed cloud
  • Foundations and principles of distributed cloud computing
  • Optimization and algorithms
  • Architectural models, prototype implementations and applications
  • Virtualization technology and enablers (network virtualization, software-defined networking)
  • Experience with existing deployments and measurements (public, private, hybrid, federated environments)
  • Service and resource specification, languages, and formal verification
  • Economics and pricing

Submission and Publication

Submissions are single-blind and should not exceed 6 pages in length (in ACM format). For an accepted paper, at least one author must attend the workshop. The submission site is:

Each submission must be a single PDF file no longer than six (6) pages in length (in two-column, 10-point format) including references, following the sig-alternate-10pt LaTeX style file. Papers should be submitted electronically via the submission site. Papers must include the author name and affiliation for single-blind peer reviewing by the program committee.

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library. Publication at DCC is not intended to preclude later publication. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their papers at the workshop.
