BigSystem 2014

International Workshop on Software-Defined Ecosystems (BigSystem 2014)

(co-located with ACM HPDC 2014, Vancouver, Canada, June 23-27, 2014)

With the emerging technology breakthrough in computing, networking, storage,
mobility, and analytics, the boundary of systems is undergoing fundamental
change and is expected to logically disappear. It is the time to rethink system
design and management without boundaries towards software-defined ecosystems,
the Big System. The basic principles of software-defined mechanisms and policies
have witnessed great success in clouds and networking. We are expecting broader,
deeper, and greater evolution and confluence towards holistic software-defined

BigSystem 2014 provides an open forum for researchers, practitioners, and system
builders to exchange ideas, discuss, and shape roadmaps towards such big systems
in the era of big data.

Paper Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit technical papers of at most 8 pages in PDF format,
including figures and references. Short position papers (4 pages) are also
encouraged. Papers should be formatted in the ACM Proceedings Style (double
