Cloud Computing and Big Data are two emerging paradigms in the recent
developments of information technology. Cloud Computing enables computing
resources to be provided as IT services in a pay-as-you-go fashion with
high efficiency and effectiveness. Big data is an emerging paradigm applied
to datasets whose size is beyond the ability of commonly used software
tools to capture, manage, and process the data within a tolerable elapsed
time.With Variety/Volume/Velocity/Value/Veracity/, Big Data such as medical
records need to be protected in an scalable and efficient way.

Information privacy and security is one of most concerned issues for Cloud
Computing due to its open environment with very limited user-side control.
It is also an important challenge for Big Data as estimated by IDC. In
addition, Cloud Computing and Big Data are coming together in practice. As
estimated by IDC, by 2020, about 40% data globally would be touched with
Cloud Computing. Cloud Computing provides strong storage, computation and
distributed capability in support of Big Data processing. As such, there is
a strong demand to investigate information privacy and security challenges
in both Cloud Computing and Big Data. This symposium aims at providing such
forum for researchers, practitioners and developers from different
background areas such as distributed computing, cloud computing, big data,
database, data mining, information security and privacy protection areas to
exchange the latest experience, research ideas and synergic research and
development on fundamental issues and applications about security and
privacy issues in cloud and big data environments. The symposium solicits
high quality research results in all related areas.

This is the third instalment of the symposium, following the successful
events of 2013 (Karlsruhe, Germany) and 2012 (Xiangtan, China).

Scope and Topics:
The objective of this symposium is to invite authors to submit original
manuscripts that demonstrate and explore current advances in all aspects of
security and privacy in cloud computing environments. The  symposium solicits
novel papers on a broad range of topics, including but not limited to:

· Privacy requirements engineering on cloud
· Private information retrieval on cloud
· Privacy and security in personal health records on cloud
· Privacy mechanisms in cloud services
· Privacy aware scheduling in cloud
· Security models, levels and scenarios in cloud computing
· Secure identity management in clouds
· Secure data management in cloud computing
· Secure access to clouds
· Remote data integrity protection
· Securing distributed data storage in the cloud
· Data-centric security and data classification
· Cost and usability models related security issues in clouds

Submission Guidelines:
Submit your papers in PDF file at the PriSec2014 submission site:
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=prisec2014. Papers should be
limited up to 8 pages in IEEE format. Templates can be downloaded here for
Word <http://kpnm.hnust.cn/confs/cgc2012/IEEECS_CPS_8.5x11x2.zip> or
All papers will be peer reviewed by two or three PC members. Submitting a
paper to the workshop means that if the paper is accepted, at least one
author should register to BdCloud<http://www.swinflow.org/confs/bdcloud2014>
2014 <http://www.swinflow.org/confs/bdcloud2014> and attend the conference
to present the paper.

All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published by IEEE
Computer Society (EI indexed). Selected papers will be invited to special
issues of BdCloud in Concurrency and Computation: Practice and
Experience, Journal
of Network and Computer Applications, Journal of Computer and System
Sciences, and IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing.
