The 16th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and Communications covers the different aspects related to communication networks, including design, queueing theory, performance analysis, communication protocols, distributed application deployment with emphasis on scalability. ScalCom 2016 deals also with modern computing systems for High Performance Computing (HPC) and High-Throughput Computing (HTC). The Conference covers particularly clusters, massively parallel systems and heterogeneous computing systems using multicore processors and computing accelerators like Graphics Processing Units (GPU) and Many Integrated Cores (MIC). Design and analysis of parallel algorithms is covered. New trends like mobile, pervasive, cloud computing and the convergence of communication and computing are also considered.
