** Overview

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 technology 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 big data 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 of cloud-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.

** Topics

Big data analytics
Data-intensive cloud computing applications, characteristics, challenges
Case studies of data intensive computing in the clouds
Performance evaluation of data clouds, data grids, and data centers
Energy-efficient data cloud design and management
Data placement, scheduling, and interoperability in the clouds
Accountability, QoS, and SLAs
Data privacy and protection in a public cloud environment
Distributed file systems for clouds
Data streaming and parallelization
New programming models for data-intensive cloud computing
Scalability issues in clouds
Social computing and massively social gaming
3D Internet and implications
Future research challenges in data-intensive cloud computing

** Important Dates

Paper submission: September 1st, 2014

Acceptance notification: October 1st, 2014
Final papers due: October 10th, 2014

** Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit papers with unpublished, original work of not more than 8 pages of double column text using single spaced 10 point size on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, as per ACM 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines; document templates can be found at http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates. The final papers in PDF format must be submitted online at https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/DATACLOUD2014/. Papers will be peer-reviewed, and accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings as part of the ACM digital library (in cooperation with SIGHPC). Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. For more information, please see http://datasys.cs.iit.edu/events/DataCloud2014/.
