1st Workshop on Big Data Management in Clouds

in conjunction with EuroPar 2012


August 27, 2012 - Rhodes Island, Greece



As data volumes increase at exponential speed in more and more 
application fields of science, the challenges posed by handling Big Data 
in the Exabyte era gain an increasing importance. High-energy physics, 
statistics, climate modeling, cosmology, genetics or bio-informatics are 
just a few examples of fields where it becomes crucial to efficiently 
manipulate Big Data, which are typically shared at large scale. With the 
emergence of highly scalable infrastructures, e.g. for Cloud computing, 
multiple application classes that perform complex data processing (data 
mining, online transaction record management, etc.), initially reserved 
to governments and large corporations that could afford the underlying 
infrastructures to run them, now become accessible to a large public. 
While Clouds provide huge amounts of storage space and customizable 
computing resources, users find themselves at the mercy of their Cloud 
service providers for the availability and integrity of their data. 
Although outsourcing data into the Cloud is economically attractive for 
the cost and complexity of long-term large-scale data storage, its 
lacking of offering strong assurance of data integrity and availability 
may impede its wide adoption by both enterprise and individual Cloud 
users. Such needs require simultaneous investigation of important 
aspects related to dependability, security and quality of service.

The BDMC workshop provides a platform for the dissemination of recent 
research efforts that explicitly aim at addressing these challenges, and 
supports the presentation of advanced solutions for the efficient 
management of Big Data in the context of Cloud computing. The workshop 
aims to provide a venue for researchers to present and discuss results 
on all aspects of data management in Clouds, new development and 
deployment efforts in running data-intensive computing workloads. In 
particular, we are interested in how the use of Cloud-based technologies 
can meet the data intensive scientific challenges of HPC applications 
that are not well served by the current supercomputers or grids, and are 
being ported to Cloud platforms. The goal of the workshop is to support 
the assessment of the current state, introduce future directions, and 
present architectures and services for future Clouds supporting data 
intensive computing.


The BDMC workshop calls for contributions that address fundamental 
research and system issues in Cloud data management including but not 
limited to the following:

.Cloud storage architectures for Big Data

.Reliability of data intensive applications and services running on the 

.Query processing and indexing in Cloud computing systems

.Data privacy and security in Clouds

.Cloud storage resource management

.Data-intensive Cloud-based applications

.Content delivery networks using storage Clouds

.Data intensive scalable computing on Clouds

.Data management within and across multiple data centers

.Data handling in MapReduce based computations

.Data management in HPC Clouds

.Programming models for data-intensive Cloud computing

.Elasticity for Cloud data management systems

Authors are invited to submit research and application papers not 
exceeding 10 pages following the Springer LNCS format. We solicit the 
submission of academic workshop papers representing original, previously 
unpublished work. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on 
originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of 
exposition. Papers should be prepared as the .pdf files and submitted 
electronically to the BDMC 2012 online submission system (via 
EasyChair). Submission of the paper implies that should the paper be 
accepted, at least one of the authors must REGISTER and present the 
paper at the workshop. Proceedings of the workshop will be published by 


Submission Deadline:June 18, 2012

Notification of Acceptance: July 6, 2012

Final Manuscript: July 20, 2012

Workshop Date: August 27, 2012
