Track 4: Future Compute Continuum and Seamless Ecosystems
Over the past few decades, we have invented many technologies and stacks across clusters, grids, clouds, edges, fogs, IoT networks, etc. These technologies and stacks form the backbone of today’s digital society. A long-term, grand challenge remains to integrate these technologies and stacks, and the ecosystems build by their stakeholders, into a digital (computing) continuum. This is a hot, emerging topic in the area of computer systems and networking, of particular interest to the CCGRID community. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Internet Computing Frontiers: Cloud, Edge, Fog, Serverless, Lambda, Streaming, Highly decentralized approaches to cloud computing, sensor data streaming and computation on the edges of the network, Backend as a Service (Baas)
- Future Internet: 5G/6G and Use cases of 5G/6G systems, Software defined networking and 5G/6G, 5G/6G cybersecurity challenges and concerns Machine learning algorithms for 5G/6G systems.
- Post- and Non-Von Neumann Computing: Neuromorphic computing; Quantum computing, Annealing-based quantum computing, hybrid quantum and classical computing; Approximate, probabilistic, and inexact computing; In-memory processing and memory-based computing; Emerging computing technologies, like analog computing, biologically-inspired computing, memristors.
- Novel memory and storage: Memory cell selection device, Persistent memories, Phase change memory, Metal oxide memory, Holographic storage, DNA storage.
- Osmotic Computing: Cloud Continuum with Osmosis behaviors, Micro Services and MicroData, Functions as a Service (Faas), Software Defined Membranes.
- Cloud-Economics: Trustworthiness of services, ecosystem economics, innovative metering, accounting, billing methods and tools, automated trading and bidding support tools, performance monitoring, optimization, prediction, energy efficiency, sustainability, decision support systems.
