CCEM Overview

Conference Scope

The Thirteenth IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing in Emerging Markets (CCEM) continues the highly successful CCEM conference series which was originally launched in 2012.

Cloud computing has emerged as a dominant and transformational paradigm in information technology over the last few years and is beginning to effect a multitude of industries such as government, finance, telecommunications, education, retail, energy and utilities, and transportation. Research in this field has become very active and spans a number of areas including virtualization, networking, storage, security, management of cloud services, efficient cloud architectures, massive multi-tenancy, and design of cloud applications and services. Cloud computing continues to be the way of the future and many studies indicate that more than 50% of all information technology will be in this new paradigm within the next five to ten years. This transformation has great implications for emerging markets which have the potential to leap frog mature markets in their adoption of cloud computing, combine cloud computing and mobile technologies to introduce unique services that can transform the lives of billions, drive a much larger scale of adoption and challenge existing price points, while presenting unique challenges in areas such as security and user interfaces to cloud computing.

The goal

This research driven innovation conference has established itself as a unique conference that combines top notch peer-reviewed research papers (acceptance rate less than 10%), invited talks from renowned industry and government leaders, posters and demos showcasing latest innovations, a startup showcase highlighting the vibrant and fast growing business ecosystem around cloud, tutorials on cutting edge topics, and a doctoral symposium featuring some of the deep research topics being pursued by academic leaders.

Conference Format

The conference will be a Three-day event that spans invited talks, peer reviewed paper presentations, tutorials,technology showcase followed by panel discussion.


Topics of Interest

We invite both paper and demo submissions on relevant topics, including but not limited to:

  • Design of Cloud Computing services, especially for emerging markets – infrastructure, platform, database, software, network, storage, e-governance, and business process
  • Utilizing/enhancing the Cloud for Big data & Predictive analytics

IEEE CCEM Pre-Conference Workshop-2024

A Prelude to the IEEE CCEM 2024 Conference & a followup of IEEE CCEM 2023

Call for Ideas in Research Track and Student Project Showcase and Technobiz Project showcase


This highly focused virtual pre-conference workshop of the 2024 IEEE CCEM is targeted at mentoring authors planning to submit in any of the following three tracks of the prestigious IEEE CCEM main conference, which is now in its Thirteenth year.

  • Track 1: Technical Ideas (Early Research Papers)
  • Track 2: Student Proof-of-Concept projects and TechnoBizPlan Showcase Ideas

By submitting early versions of their ideas/proposals for any of these three tracks, participants get an opportunity to present their early ideas and obtain professional feedback and mentoring individually, helping them make a successful submission to the main CCEM conference. Hence, we encourage submissions for innovative cloud-based solutions addressing emerging market problems focused on utilizing/enhancing Cloud, IoT, machine learning, analytics, and furthering progress towards the sustainable development goals of the United Nations. Certificates and cash prizes will be awarded to the most innovative proposals in each of the aforementioned three tracks.s

The workshop itself will have two concurrent sessions spanning the three tracks:

Session A: Invited talks by eminent technologists & academics from organisations such as IBM, Nutanix, AWS, Openstream, RedHat and academic institutions on the theme of the conference.

Session B: Presentations by the authors of 'Early Research Paper, Student- Project-Showcase, and TechnoBizPlan-Showcase.

The participants will have to attend Session A while awaiting their turn to present their ideas to the Professional Mentors in Session B. The proposal has to be three A4 size pages maximum, strictly adhering to the given template. Confidential aspects of any proposal are not encouraged, discussed or shared.

Call for Ideas in Research Track(Early Research Papers)

The Early Research Papers submissions focus on building-up researchable ideas and innovations leading to breakthrough results that have not yet been professionally published. These submissions are discussed and mentored into either short research papers focused on a solitary idea in its entirety or into a full research paper.

Call for Student Project Showcase and Techno-Business Plans Showcase

The Student-Project-Showcase offers an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to come up with an impactful solution to the emerging-markets' problem-statements, which are also part of their academic-degree-requirements. With further mentoring, these ideas can convert into a full research paper.

The TechnoBiz-Plan Showcase enables Students, Professionals, Start-Ups, Established companies & Academia to demonstrate cutting-edge capabilities and ideas metamorphosing in the world of product and service offerings. The select proposals would get a chance to present it to the audience during the event.
