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).

Locations of SoCC 2020. As of Oct 14th, we have 427 registrations from 21 countries

SoCC will be held entirely virtually, using two platforms: Whova as the main platform for the conference, and VirtualChair/Gather, for the hallway, extended Q&A, and poster sessions. You can use Whova through the web portal, or get it for your mobile device.

With the exciting schedule of papers, keynotes, posters, and panels, and plenty of opportunities to interact, we are confident that SoCC will be a great event, with the potential to reach even more people around the world, and continue to connect academics, researchers, and industry around cloud computing.

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.
