Call for Papers: IEEE CCEM 2021
27 - 30 October 2021 | Virtual
 

Deadline for the Submission of Research Papers/ Tutorial Proposals: 18th July 2021

The tenth edition of the IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing in Emerging Markets (CCEM) offers an ideal platform for innovators, researchers and students on Cloud computing and its associated technology areas and applications – these have emerged as a dominant and transformational paradigm influencing many institutions and industry-sectors such as Health, Governance, Banking, Finance, Telecommunications, Education, Retail, Energy, Utilities, and Transportation. Innovations in this, span a number of areas including virtualization, networking, storage, security, management of cloud services – hybrid & on-premise, efficient interoperable cloud architectures, as well as design of cloud applications and services. Cloud Computing is also a major driver of sustainable Information Technology and more broadly an enabler of achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals for this decade. This transformation has great implications for emerging markets & Nations, in their adoption of cloud computing, by combining cloud computing, social media, and mobile technologies to introduce unique services that can transform the lives of billions, drive a much larger scale of adoption & challenge existing price points, while solving unique challenges in areas such as security, data privacy and user interfaces to cloud computing.

This highly focused IEEE CCEM-2021 is targeted at potential participants planning to submit their research papers, techno-business plan showcase and Competition, or student-project-showcase and competition. We encourage proposal submissions for innovative cloud-based-systems in the world of BigData, AI, ML/DL & IoT that address emerging market problems as well as solutions from it for the World. The conference participants, if selected based on their submission, get an opportunity to present their ideas, and obtain professional feedback as well as mentoring in an encouraging and nurturing environment. Certificates and cash awards will be given for the three most innovative papers submitted across these three areas viz., (1) Research-paper submissions (2) Techno-biz-plan showcases (3) Student project showcases.
The current plan is that the 2021 edition of the CCEM will run as a virtual event during October 27-30, 2021. Please check the conference website for updates.

Call for Technical Research Papers:
We invite technical papers on all topics relevant to Cloud Computing in Emerging Markets as listed above. Papers should typically include a clear description of the problem being addressed, an overview of and comparison to related work, the theoretical framework/model proposed by the authors, experimental results, and conclusions. Papers will be reviewed by an international program committee which will ensure that only high-quality papers with originality and novelty are accepted for presentation at the conference. The papers can be either-
    • A full research paper of a maximum of 8 pages with complete and substantial research outcomes
    • A short research paper of 4 pages that is complete but discussing a limited contribution. The short paper track also provides authors to present good engineering work or negative results that will otherwise not qualify to meet the stringent guidelines of a full research paper.
Please follow the paper/proposal template mandatorily as given on the website. The selected full and short research papers will be published as part of the conference proceedings which can be indexed through IEEE Xplore. The conference will publicly announce the winner of the Best Paper Award.

 

Call for TechnoBizPlan Showcase Proposals:
The TechnoBizPlan-Showcase session at CCEM enables start-up companies, established companies, professionals,Students (from Management/Engineering/Non-Engineering Schools or Colleges), and faculties to demonstrate the cutting-edge capabilities and ideas in the field of cloud computing which can be incubated into product and/or service offerings. The CCEM Conference has showcased innovative technologies in previous years as well and these sessions have been very interactive with the conference audience that has also included reputed venture capitalists.
The TechnoBizPlan proposals should typically include:
  •   Overview of the technology innovations being leveraged
  •    Top use cases for the innovations
  •    Comparison to competing technologies and alternatives, architecture, design and implementation challenges
  •    Link to a three minute or less uploaded YouTube video demo
Please follow the paper/proposal template mandatorily as given in the website. The top two submissions will have an opportunity to present an elevator pitch before the conference participants. The reviewed and accepted proposals will get an opportunity to present their ideas to the Review Committee which would be drawn from Academia, Industry and Venture Capitalists. The best pitch will win the “10th IEEE CCEM 2021 TechnoBizPlan Competition Award”. A short but substantial 3-page write-up as per template above of the accepted TechnoBiz plans will be published and will be published on our website.

 

Call for Student Project Showcase Proposals:
The Student-Project-Showcase offers an opportunity for under-graduate and graduate students to do more constructive academic projects to analyse how cloud computing can be leveraged to assuage problems of emerging markets. Reviewed and accepted proposals will have a dedicated space for presentation and
demos. The CCEM Conference has showcased innovative technologies implemented by students in their projects in previous years as well and these sessions have been very interactive with the conference audience.
