Due to multiple requests, the deadline of DataCloud 2014 has been extended
to Sept 12th, 2014. Following is the updated CFP.

DataCloud 2014: 5th International Workshop on Data Intensive Computing in
the Clouds

In conjunction with SC14
In cooperation with ACM SIGHPC

November 21st, 2014
New Orleans LA, USA, New Orleans, LA

Applications and experiments in all areas of science are becoming
increasingly complex and more demanding in terms of their computational and
data requirements. Some applications generate data volumes reaching
hundreds of terabytes and even petabytes. Analyzing, visualizing, and
disseminating these large data sets has become a major challenge and
data intensive
computing is now considered as the ''fourth paradigm'' in scientific
discovery after theoretical, experimental, and computational science.

As scientific applications become more data intensive, the technologies of
handling "Big Data" have gathered great importance. This necessity has made
that applications have seen an increasing adoption on clouds
infrastructures. The computing models,system software, programming models,
analysis frameworks, and other clouds services need to evolve and
accommodate them to face the challenge of bigdata applications.

DataCloud 2014 will provide the scientific community a dedicated forum for
discussing new research, development, and deployment efforts in
running data-intensive
computing workloads on Cloud Computing infrastructures. The DataCloud 2014
workshop will focus on the use ofcloud-based technologies to meet the new
data intensive scientific challenges that are not well served by the
current supercomputers, grids or compute-intensive clouds. We believe the
workshop will be an excellent place to help the community define the
current state, determine future goals, and present architectures and
services for future clouds supporting data intensive computing.
