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. Cloud computing provides the potential storage and processing capability for big data applications. Between them, workflow technology, which composes and automates business and scientific processing tasks, becomes a bridging and enabling tool to utilize cloud infrastructure for big data management. This workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers, practitioners and developers from different background areas such as cloud computing, service computing, data processing, and workflow area to exchange the latest experience, research ideas and synergic research and development on fundamental issues and applications about workflow management in cloud computing and big data environments. The workshop solicits high quality research results in all related areas.

WMCB 2014 is the next event in a series of highly successful International Workshops, previously held as WMSC 2013 (Karlsruhe, Germany), WMSC 2012 (Xiangtan, China), WMSC 2011 (Sydney, Australia), WMSC 2010 (Hongkong, China), and WMSC 2009 (Chengdu, China).
Topics of Interest

The objective of the workshop is to invite authors to submit original manuscripts that demonstrate and explore current advances in all aspects of workflow management in cloud computing and big data processing. The workshop solicits novel papers on a broad range of topics, including but not limited to:
* Workflow verification and validation
* Novel architectural models for cloud computing in support of workflow execution
* Cloud workflow architecture
* Cloud resource management
* Scientific computing in the cloud
* Workflow management for big data processing
* Programming models for cloud computing
* Access control and authorisation for workflow execution
* Workflow scheduling in cloud computing
* Utility models and service pricing
* Service enabled workflow applications
* Privacy, security, risk and trust issues in cloud computing
* Social issues in cloud computing
* Green cloud computing

* Service Security, Privacy and Trust for workflow modelling and execution
Submission Guidelines and Publication

Please submit your paper(s) in PDF file at the WMCB 2014 submission site: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wmcb2014. Papers should be limited up to 8 pages in IEEE format (http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting). 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 2014 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 be published in special issues of 
* Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience
* Journal of Network and Computer Applications
* Journal of Computer and System Sciences
* IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing.
