The International Symposium on Algorithmic Aspects of Cloud Computing (ALGOCLOUD) is an annual event aiming to tackle the diverse new topics in the emerging area of algorithmic aspects of computing and data management in modern cloud-based systems interpreted broadly so as to include edge- and fog-based systems, cloudlets, cloud micro-services, virtualization environments, decentralized systems, as well as dynamic networks.
ALGOCLOUD aims at bringing together researchers, students, and practitioners to present research activities and results on topics related to algorithmic, design, and development aspects of modern cloud-based systems. The 8th edition of this symposium (ALGOCLOUD 2023) is co-located with ALGO 2023, a leading international event of researchers working on algorithms and their engineering.

Call for Papers
ALGOCLOUD welcomes submissions on all theoretical, design, and implementation aspects of modern cloud-based systems. ALGOCLOUD is particularly interested in novel algorithms in the context of cloud and edge computing, cloud architectures, cloud-edge continuum as well as experimental work that evaluates contemporary cloud-edge approaches and pertinent applications. ALGOCLOUD also welcomes demonstration manuscripts, which discuss successful system developments, as well as experience/use-case articles and high-quality survey papers. Contributions may span a wide range of algorithms for modeling, practices for building and techniques for evaluating operations and services in a variety of systems, including but not limited to, virtualized infrastructures, cloud computing platforms, edge computing platforms, fog computing platforms, datacenters, cloud-storage options, cloud data management, non-traditional key-value stores on the cloud, HPC architectures, decentralized systems, as well as dynamic networks.
All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:
- Regular papers: Authors are invited to submit high-quality manuscripts reporting original unpublished research in the topics related to the symposium. A regular paper submission should clearly motivate the importance of the problem being addressed, discuss prior work and its relationship to the paper, explicitly and precisely state the paper’s key contributions, and outline the key technical ideas and methods used to achieve the main results. A regular paper submission should not exceed 12 pages, including title page and abstract but excluding referencesand an optional appendix. Authors should include all necessary details in their submission so that the Technical Program Committee (TPC) can judge correctness, importance and originality of their work. Any material (e.g., proofs or experimental results) omitted (from the main part of 12 pages)due to space limitations can be put into the optional appendix, which will be read at the TPC’s discretion. Regular papers will be allotted up to 20 pages in the proceedings.
- Short papers: A short paper submission may present work-in-progress on a specific topic, or work appeared elsewhere but is worth publicizing it in the symposium, or a demonstration of a system or library, or an experience/use-case paper, or a vision paper. Authors should clearly motivate the importance of their contribution, discuss prior work and its relationship to the paper, and in general provide sufficient details in their submission so that the TPC can judge the quality and importance of their work. A short paper submission should be at least 2 and at most 8pages. Short papers will be allotted up to 8 pages in the proceedings.
- Survey papers: A survey paper submission concerns the write-up of a high-quality survey paper on an emerging hot topic. Authors are asked to submit a proposal between 5 and 10 pages, that clearly motivates the importance of the topic, and contains the structure of the survey paper along with the most important references that will be critically reviewed and presented. If the proposal is accepted, then authors will be given sufficient time (until end of September 2023) to prepare the full version of their survey paper that needs to pass a quality control check by the TPC, in order to be finally accepted and appear in the proceedings. Survey papers will be allotted up to 40 pages in the proceedings.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Algorithms for Decentralized Systems
- Algorithms for Dynamic Networks
- Cloud-Edge Continuum
- IoT and Cloud Computing
- Fog and Edge Computing
- Mobile Edge Computing
- Stream processing for Cloud-Edge continuum

The conference proceedings will be published in the Springer “Lecture Notes in Computer Science” after the end of the event (post-proceedings).
All papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submission system at:
Submissions website: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=algocloud23
Submissions must be in the form of a single pdf file prepared using the LNCS latex templates and style files (available, together with Springer’s authors’ guidelines, from https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines). Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are also available on Overleaf (https://www.overleaf.com/latex/templates/springer-lecture-notes-in-computer-science/kzwwpvhwnvfj#.WsdHOy5uZpg).
By submitting a paper the authors acknowledge that in case of acceptance at least one of the authors must register at ALGO/ALGOCLOUD 2023 and present the paper (this holds for all types of papers, including accepted survey proposals).
Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made. Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are available in Overleaf. Accepted papers will be included in the post-proceedings published by Springer in its Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
