CCEM Overview

Conference Scope

The Seventh IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing in Emerging Markets (CCEM) continues the highly successful CCEM conference series which was originally launched in 2012.

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, tutorials, peer reviewed paper presentations, a panel, and a technology showcase.

 

Topics of Interest

We invite both paper and demo submissions on relevant topics, including but not limited to:

  • Design of Cloud Computing services, especially for emerging markets – infrastructure, platform, database, software, network, storage, e-governance, and business process
  • Utilizing/enhancing the Cloud for Big data & Predictive analytics
  • Social & Mobile computing advances leveraging the Cloud
  • Internet of Things enabled by Cloud, Big Data & AI
  • Big Data Analytics & AI driven predictive computing
  • Intersection of Cloud with Cognitive Computing and Artificial Intelligence
  • Deep Learning in Cloud Environments

Call for Student Proof of Concept Competition

IEEE Cloud Computing for Emerging Markets (CCEM) Conference will host a student proof-of concept competi-tion. This contest offers an opportunity for under-graduate and graduate students to analyze how cloud computing can be leveraged to assuage problems afflicting emerging markets. The top ideas will be short-listed and given the opportunity to be showcased at IEEE CCEM 2018.

How to Participate
  1. Identify a problem that is plaguing citizens of emerging economies and analyze how cloud computing can alleviate that obstacle. An example would be to use the power of hybrid clouds to render e-governance of public village sanitation malpractice-free. Another example could be to design a novel way to improve the concept of DigiLockers being implemented by the Indian Government to pave way for secure paperless transactions. Look at these schemes launched by the Government of India (http://www.pradhanmantriyojana.co.in/) for more topic ideas.
  2. Develop cloud computing based theory to address the chosen challenge and write a high-level proposal, algorithmically laying out your approach.
  3. Develop a proof-of-concept to demonstrate that your approach is viable.
  4. Upload your entry to the IEEE CCEM Student PoC Competition webpage.
    Your submission should be a single 9-page PDF file (in 11pt font - double column - following IEEE Paper submission guidelines) comprising of:
    • A 3-page PoC brief that describes your design approach along with an embedded hyperlink to a 5-minute youtube video showcasing the PoC.
      Note 1: The PoC brief should include (a) Title (b) Participants names, affiliation & email ids (c) Abstract (d) Introduction (e) PoC architecture (f) PoC implementation details (g) hyperlink to the aforementioned youtube video and (h) references
      Note 2: The video can be captured using a mobile phone camera. We don’t expect professional quality video as long as we can clearly see the features of the working PoC
    • A 6-slide presentation that details the strategy you adopted to realize your PoC
  5. Present your idea before a panel of judges at a session of the conference.

Please submit your tutorial proposal summary by 23rd October 2018 via Easychair for CCEM 2018 HERE
