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).

SoCC will be held at the Hyatt Regency Lake Washington at Seattle's Southport, in Renton, WA, to foster connections between the academic and industrial communities operating in the cloud space.

[5/14/20] Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
The SoCC Organizing Committee extends its sympathies to all of those impacted by COVID-19, in any form, and in any place worldwide.

While the conference is still relatively far away, there are currently restrictions in place on organizing events in Washington state, as well as potential travel restrictions. We are hopeful the situation will be restored to a certain level of normality by the time of the conference in mid-October, and are monitoring the developments carefully. Please check this space regularly for updates, or get in touch with the organizing committee.

We have extended our paper submission deadline (registration 5/18, submission 5/25) to accommodate any inconveniences and challenges faced by our community.

Please note that regardless of any developments, SoCC 2020 will accommodate remote participation and presentation for those who will not be able to attend the conference physically. Furthermore, ACM has confirmed that all accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the conference, provided at least one author registers for the conference and presents the paper, either physically or remotely. Details on registration are forthcoming. For now, we wish you to stay safe, healthy, and productive. We are looking forward to your paper contributions!

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.
