Special Workshop Track – Smart Scalable Secure Architectures 

This is the 1st International IEEE Smart Scalable and Secure Architecture(SSSA2021) workshop - a  one(1 )Day event depending on submissions. The workshop Smart Scalable and Secure Architectures (SSSA2021 ) will be taking place in a virtual format on the 15th of December 2021 (EDT), co-hosted with IEEE CIC (Collaboration and Internet Computing), IEEE CogMI (Cognitive Machine Intelligence) and IEEE TPS (Trust, Privacy and Security of Intelligence Systems, and Applications). Target audience: PhD students, early career researchers, industry practitioners and experts focusing on tools , case studies, industry and government experience, vision, and architectural solutions in virtualization.

We would like to solicit papers in the area of  Smart Scalable  and Secure Architectures . Virtualization is facing an unprecedented infrastructure challenge – as  we see  the  integration  and collaboration  of  data  cloud  devices , internet of things , and  Fog  computing services now becoming all mainstream to deliver intelligent  critical infrastructure protection  in areas such as healthcare , education , telecommunications,  transportation , agriculture,  banking , supply chain among many other areas. The expectation is by 2030 as many countries develop emergent smart scalable  and secure architectures these observations will become commonplace. This is a major area for which academic and industry partnered research needs to keep building out in earnest . This smart scalable and secure architecture must be achieved by more efficient methods and  effective data management  to meet global sustainability goals. Disruptive information technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics and the industry 4.0  internet-of-things  and industry 5.0 human augmented intelligence services continue to harness the power  of  "on demand" virtualization infrastructure. This goal  has given birth to the emergent space of scalable computing architectures.  This special session seeks position and technical papers discussing scalable architectural  problems and innovative solutions covering all areas.

The 2021 Scalable Architectures session (SSSA-2021) will provide a forum where researchers and
technical parties interested can share their latest research insights, and present key and emerging
results in terms of this field. All papers are subject to peer review as guided by IEEE
policies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Fog (including IOT) Architecture
  • Scalable cloud
  • Serverless Computing
  • Microservices, Clusters and Containers
  • DevOps and Virtualization
  • Usability studies in virtualization
  • Virtualization and pandemic case studies
  • Cyber-physical compute engines

Review Policy

IEEE Policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others before publication. It is expected that no one with access to a paper under review will make any inappropriate use of the special knowledge, which that access provides. Contents of abstracts submitted to conference program committees should be regarded as privileged as well, and handled in the same manner. The Conference Publications Chair shall ensure that referees adhere to this practice. Organizers of IEEE conferences are expected to provide an appropriate forum for the oral presentation and discussion of all accepted papers. An author, in offering a paper for presentation at an IEEE conference, or accepting an invitation to present a paper, is expected to be present at the meeting to deliver the paper. In the event that circumstances unknown at the time of submission of a paper preclude its presentation by an author, the program chair should be informed on time, and appropriate substitute arrangements should be made. In some cases, it may help reduce no-shows for the Conference to require advance registration together with the submission of the final manuscript.

Towards an Integrated Micro-services Architecture for Campus environments 5:00 pm

Abstract—This paper posits the need for an integrated micro services framework for handling all business and student services at our local University. We present the research question, "to what extent do the functionalities of the micro service frameworks provide beneficial considerations for the implementation of a micro service system within the University campus environment?" We discuss the response to this question regarding using a use case implementation now in progress from our enterprise systems solution - ISAS (Integrated Student Assessment System).
