ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing 2021

SoCC'21 is 12th edition of the annual ACM Symposium on Cloud Computing, the premier conference on cloud computing. It brings together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners interested in cloud computing, and is the only conference co-sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Groups on Management of Data (SIGMOD) and on Operating Systems (SIGOPS). As in prior SoCC conferences, SoCC'21 will foster connections between the academic and industrial communities operating in the cloud space.


SoCC'21 will be a hybrid event: three days virtual + in-person (in Seattle, Washington with limited attendees, Nov 1st to 3rd), and a fourth day, Nov 4th, an all virtual event.

To maximize the safety of all attendees, for the in-person event, we will require proof of COVID vaccination, use of masks, and will do free daily on-site testing of all attendees.
