Date2020-12-07 - 2020-12-11


VenueDelft, Netherlands, The Netherlands, The



Topics/Call fo Papers

Containers are lightweight OS-level virtualization. In recent years, container-based virtualization for applications has gained immense popularity thanks to the success of technologies like Docker. Container management is one of the key challenges of adopting this technology. As a result, management middleware like Kubernetes, Mesos, etc., are witnessing widespread adoption in the industry today. While Containers as a technology have reached an acceptable level of maturity, we see today that most of the challenges hindering the full-scale adoption of this technology lies in the limitation of the existing middleware managing containerized workloads. Problems around scalability, security, high-availability, disaster recovery, and compliance are still active research areas that require innovative solutions.
The aim of this workshop is to shed light on the main challenges and solutions of running containerized workloads in clustered environments.
The sixth workshop on container technologies and container clouds solicits contributions in this area from researchers and practitioners in both the academia and industry. The workshop welcomes submissions describing unpublished research, position papers as well as deployment experiences on various topics related to containers as outlined below:
Topics of interested include but are not limited to:
Analyzing Scalability and performance of container management middleware (K8s, Mesos, Swarm...)
Use cases for containers in Machine Learning workloads
Security, isolation and performance of containers in shared environments
Network architectures for multi-host container deployments
Orchestration models for cloud scale deployments
High availability systems for containerized workloads
Leveraging hardware support for containers and containerized workloads
Migrating and optimizing traditional workloads for containers
Operational issues surrounding management of large clusters of containers
Container use cases and challenges for HPC, Big Data and IoT applications
Leveraging cognitive techniques for container management
Performance enhancement of containers
Use cases of using containers such as serverless computing and PaaS
Comparative studies between different middleware for managing containers
Comparative studies between containers, uni-kernels, and any other virtualization technologies
Other topics relevant to containers management
