Call for Papers

5th International Workshop on Cloud Data and Platforms (CloudDP 2015)
Co-located with ACM EuroSys 2015
Bordeaux, France
April 21, 2015

Submission deadline: February 10, 2015


The International Workshop on Cloud Data and Platforms 2015 (CloudDP 2015) will be the fifth in a series of workshops that bring together researchers interested in cloud-based platforms for data management and high-velocity, big data processing. CloudDP 2015 will be hosted together with EuroSys 2015, a premier forum for discussing issues of systems software research and development.

The focus of this workshop is on new cloud-based data management and processing systems which span tens of thousands of machines in order to support processing of contemporary, very large data sets. Such systems require novel architectures, programming models and designs that go beyond approaches used in fixed-sized compute clusters. The focus of such systems is to support the work of users who interactively explore and analyze large and quickly changing data sets. The right platforms and techniques can simplify and accelerate the design, implementation, and execution of new "big data" applications.

Instead of providing a forum for merely extending existing cloud data systems and platforms, we hope to encourage the discussion of radical new alternatives. In particular, we want to foster the development of new infrastructures and platforms that rethink how data can be processed in cloud-based systems. We plan to attract research that has the potential to underpin the next generation of scalable and efficient data management applications on top of high-level, flexible platforms.

The topics of the workshop relate to various aspects of cloud-based data management platforms, and the resulting challenges for the supporting cloud infrastructures. Specifically, we invite submissions focusing on, not exclusively:
- new processing paradigms
- new programming models
- adaptive data management
- vertical and horizontal scalability in data processing
- elastic storage and networking
- elasticity and adaptive scheduling
- resource allocation and provisioning
- multi-tenancy and virtualization
- dependability and fault tolerance
- predictability in cloud environments
- large-scale and distributed deployments
- case-studies

Authors are invited to submit original papers that are not being considered for publication in any other forum. Submissions may not exceed 6 pages double column. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and evaluated based on their originality, technical merit and potential impact. All submissions should be made via the EasyChair system https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=clouddp2015. Accepted papers will be available from the ACM digital library. Details about formatting are available on the workshop webpage.
