Scalability is one of the key evaluation criteria of computing systems. In particular, scalability is essential in HPC systems. High scalability represents a kind of elasticity, which can guarantee high throughput, small delay and high performance. Additionally, with the need to process data deluge and to solve difficult or large scale problems, new architectures like computing accelerator, e.g., GPU and MIC have appeared. Improvements to these architectures are still needed in order to use them in large scale heterogeneous systems. Similarly, new parallel algorithms, softwares, and tools are needed to improve scalability.

The 17th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and Communications (ScalCom 2017) provides a high-profile, leading-edge forum for researchers, engineers, and practitioners to present state-of-art advances and innovations in theoretical foundations, systems, algorithms, infrastructure, tools, testbeds, and applications for scalable computing and communications, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future. ScalCom 2017 is the next edition of the successful series, previously held as ScalCom 2016 Toulouse France, ScalCom 2015 Beijing China, ScalCom 2014 Bali Indonesia, ScalCom 2013 Chengdu China, ScalCom 2012 Changzhou China, ScalCom 2011 Paphos Cyprus, ScalCom 2010 Bradford UK, ScalCom 2009 Dalian China.
