Call for Papers

IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Big Data Computing (BDC) 2014
December 8-11, 2014, London, UK
http://www.cloudbus.org/bdc2014

In conjunction with:
7th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC 2014)
Sponsored by: IEEE Computer Society and ACM (Association for Computing Machinery)

Introduction
===============================================================================
Rapid advances in digital sensors, networks, storage, and computation along
with their availability at low cost is leading to the creation of huge
collections of data -- dubbed as Big Data. This data has the potential for
enabling new insights that can change the way business, science, and
governments deliver services to their consumers and can impact society as a
whole. This has led to the emergence of the Big Data Computing paradigm
focusing on sensing, collection, storage, management and analysis of data from
variety of sources to enable new value and insights.

To realize the full potential of Big Data Computing, we need to address
several challenges and develop suitable conceptual and technological solutions
for dealing them. These include life-cycle management of data, large-scale
storage, flexible processing infrastructure, data modelling, scalable machine
learning and data analysis algorithms, techniques for sampling and making
trade-off between data processing time and accuracy, and dealing with privacy
and ethical issues involved in data sensing, storage, processing, and actions.

The IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Big Data Computing (BDC) 2014 -- held
in conjunction with 7th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud
Computing (UCC 2014), December 8-11, 2014, London, UK, aims at bringing
together international researchers, developers, policy makers, and users and
to provide an international forum to present leading research activities,
technical solutions, and results on a broad range of topics related to Big
Data Computing paradigms, platforms and their applications. The conference
features keynotes, technical presentations, posters, workshops, tutorials, as
well as competitions featuring live demonstrations.

PAPER SUBMISSION
===============================================================================
Authors are invited to submit papers electronically. Submitted manuscripts
should be structured as technical papers and may not exceed 10 letter size
(8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references using the IEEE format
for conference proceedings (print area of 6-1/2 inches (16.51 cm) wide by 8-7/8
inches (22.51 cm) high, two-column format with columns 3-1/16 inches (7.85 cm)
wide with a 3/8 inch (0.81 cm) space between them, single-spaced 10-point Times
fully justified text). Submissions not conforming to these guidelines may be
returned without review. Authors should submit the manuscript in PDF format and
make sure that the file will print on a printer that uses letter size (8.5 x 11)
paper. The official language of the meeting is English. All manuscripts will be
reviewed and will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength,
significance, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the
conference attendees. Papers conforming to the above guidelines can be
submitted through the BDC 2014 paper submission system
(https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bdc2014).

Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is not
currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not
following these guidelines will be rejected without review and further action
may be taken, including (but not limited to) notifications sent to the heads
of the institutions of the authors and sponsors of the conference. Submissions
received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately
structured may also not be considered. Authors may contact the conference PC
Chair for more information. The proceedings will be published through the IEEE
Computer Society Press, USA and will be made online through the IEEE Digital
Library. Selected papers from BDC 2014 will be invited to extend and submit to
the Special Issue on Many-Task Computing in the Cloud in the IEEE Transaction
on Cloud Computing (http://datasys.cs.iit.edu/events/TCC-MTC15/CFP_TCC-MTC15.pdf)
