The First ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing (SoCC)


Earlier this summer, the inaugural ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing (SoCC) was held in Indianapolis, Indiana. Co-located alternately with the ACM SIGMOD and SOSP conferences, the symposia are intended to address the issues posed by cloud computing to both the systems and the data management communities.

The Call For Papers (CFP) for this year's SoCC was issued in early October of 2009, with a paper submission deadline of January 2010. Despite the tight schedule, the symposium received 118 high-quality submissions, out of which 23 were selected for the final program. The most popular categories for submissions were resource management and performance, large scale cloud applications, and distributed and parallel query processing; the least popular were transactional models, grid computing, and geographic distribution.

The 2010 symposium featured keynote talks from Google, Facebook, and Salesforce.com (follow the links for a video recording of each). For a detailed summary of the full program, see Jeff Terrace's excellent account of days one and two.

Co-located with SOSP, the second SoCC will be held in Cascais, Portugal on October 27 - 28, 2011. As noted in the Program Committee Report from this year's Program Chairs, Surajit Chaudhuri and Mendel Rosenblum, next year's symposium could benefit from increased industrial participation. To that end, the CFP for the 2011 SoCC has already been posted.

If you're currently grappling with the challenges of cloud computing and think your approach has some merit, please consider submitting a paper to next year's symposium!
