ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing 2020 (SoCC '20)

The ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing 2020 (SoCC '20) is the eleventh in an established series of symposia that bring together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners interested in cloud computing. SoCC is co-sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Groups on Management of Data (SIGMOD) and on Operating Systems (SIGOPS).

[8/19/20] Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, SoCC will be held entirely virtually, at the originally planned date. We reached this decision after careful consideration of the safety and health of all participants, and in light of the uncertainty and potential difficulties of holding a large gathering of people, travel restrictions, etc. With the amazing set of papers that were selected, keynotes, posters, and other opportunities to interact, we are confident that SoCC will be a great event, with the potential to reach even more people around the world, and continue to connect academics, researchers, and industry around cloud computing.


  • [8/19/20] SoCC will be fully virtual! Registration details coming soon. There will be more opportunities for participation from around the world!

  • [8/10/20] 35 papers accepted! Program to come soon.

  • [5/5/20] Paper submission extended (due to COVID-19)

  • [5/1/20] Submission Site is now open

  • [3/2/20] Call for Papers is out.

The ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing 2020 (SoCC '20) acknowledges and values all dimensions of diversity by cultivating an environment built on tolerance and mutual respect. We actively promote inclusion in every aspect of the symposium including but not limited to organization and program committees and conference activities. We encourage the participation of all individuals regardless of age, gender, gender identity, race, cultural background, religion, physical and mental ability, sexual orientation, parental and marital status, etc. We actively denounce and combat prejudice and stereotyping, and will follow the ACM Policy Against Harassment, embracing ACM processes for Reporting Unacceptable Behavior.

Please follow this webpage for updates on the steps we are taking to create a diverse and inclusive environment during the conference. As we embark in this journey of continued (un)learning we will misstep. Your ideas and feedback can help us find our way towards a healthier and more welcoming community. You may contact SoCC D&I Chair, Karla Saur (, with suggestions, comments, or complaints about our work in this area.
