2ND INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON ALGORITHMIC ASPECTS OF CLOUD COMPUTING - ALGOCLOUD 2016
AUGUST 22, AARHUS, DENMARK

Welcome to ALGOCLOUD 2016

The International Workshop on Algorithmic Aspects of Cloud Computing (ALGOCLOUD 2016) is an annual event co-located with ALGO 2016 aiming to tackle the diverse new topics in the emerging area of algorithmic aspects of computing and data management in the Cloud. The increasing adoption of cloud computing introduces a variety of parallel and distributed algorithmic models and architectures. To leverage elastic cloud resources, scalability has to be a fundamental architectural design trait of new cloud databases. This challenge is manifested in new data models ("NoSQL"), replication, caching and partitioning schemes, relaxed consistency and transaction guarantees as well as new protocols, APIs, indexing and storage services. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners in cloud computing algorithms, service design and data architectures to exchange ideas and contribute to the development of this exciting and emerging new field.
