Computing infrastructures and systems are rapidly developing and so are novel ways to map, control and execute scientific applications which become more and more complex and collaborative.
Computational and storage capabilities, databases, sensors, and people need true collaborative tools. Over the last years there has been a real explosion of new theory and technological progress supporting a better understanding of these wide-area, fully distributed sensing and computing systems. Big Data in all its guises require novel methods and infrastructures to register, analyze and distill meaning.

FGCS aims to lead the way in advances in distributed systems, collaborative environments, high performance and high performance computing, Big Data on such infrastructures as grids, clouds and the Internet of Things (IoT).

The Aims and Scope of FGCS cover new developments in:

[1] Applications and application support:

Novel applications for novel e-infrastructures

Complex workflow applications

Big Data registration, processing and analyses

Problem solving environments and virtual laboratories

Semantic and knowledge based systems

Collaborative infrastructures and virtual organizations

Methods for high performance and high throughput computing

Urgent computing

Scientific, industrial, social and educational implications


[2] Methods and tools:

Tools for infrastructure development and monitoring

Distributed dynamic resource management and scheduling

Information management

Protocols and emerging standards

Methods and tools for internet computing

Security aspects

[3] Theory:

Process specification;

Program and algorithm design

Theoretical aspects of large scale communication and computation

Scaling and performance theory

Protocols and their verification
