The 15th Annual IEEE/ACM International Symposium in Cluster, Cloud, and Grid Computing (CCGrid 2015) brought together international researchers, developers, and practitioners to present leading research activities and results on a broad range of topics. The 2017 Special Issue of Future Generation Computer Systems discusses papers from this conference. Podzimek and colleagues present a tool that accurately controls the processor utilization of arbitrary concurrent workloads, either establishing a constant partial load or replaying a variable load trace, to facilitate experiments at partial utilization. Zhang and colleagues present the system architecture of Lark and its implementation as a plugin of HTCondor, which is a popular HTC software project. Deshpande and Keahey address the problem of network contention between Virtual Machine (VM) application traffic and migration traffic for the live migration of co-located Virtual Machines. Zahid and co-researchers present two significant extensions to their previously proposed partition-aware fat-tree routing algorithm, pFTree, for InfiniBand-based HPC systems. They extend pFTree to incorporate provider defined partition-wise policies that govern how the nodes in different partitions are allowed to share network resources with each other
