Nowadays, parallel architectures are ubiquitous and the arena of computing and communicating devices is quickly reaching an unprecedented scale. The trend is to keep increasing both the number of cores in a single device as well as the number of communicating devices. In this massively parallel and heterogeneous context, the need for scalable computing is everywhere and scalability is rapidly becoming a central aspect of computing.
The 17th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and Communications (ScalCom 2017) will provide a forum for researchers willing to present their original work on scalable parallel and distributed computing. ScalCom 2017 will offer a unique opportunity to exchange ideas at the highest technical level related to communication networks, performance analysis and distributed applications with particular emphasis on scalability.
We invite submissions of high-quality research papers describing fully developed results or on-going foundational and applied work relating to all aspects of scalable computing and communications. The program committee will interpret it very broadly; everything from engineering principles to practical experiences on different levels of a parallel and distributed system including High Performance Computing (HPC), massively parallel systems and heterogeneous computing. We particularly encourage submissions on topics of emerging interest in the research and development communities.

- Cloud and Fog Computing
- X as a Service, where X includes backend, business process, database, infrastructure, network, platform, security, software, and storage
