Where Vancouver, Canada

The Sixth International Workshop on Data Intensive Distributed

Call for Papers: Hot Topics Session

In addition to regular papers track, DIDC 2014 is soliciting papers
for a special Hot Topics session.

Hot Topics papers are expected to discuss current trends and upcoming
challenges in data-intensive distributed computing. Authors will be
given short presentation slots during the workshop. Submissions should
come with initial results or observations supporting the presented
approach or current challenges. An ideal paper should initiate a
lively discussion based on clearly stated arguments, orthogonal
approaches, original ideas, or future problems in data-intensive
distributed computing.

Submission Guidelines:

Hot Topics papers should be formatted in the same way as a regular
submission with a maximum of five (5) pages. All submission will be
evaluated based on the quality of presentation and the novelty of the
given idea or approach.

Submitted papers may not have appeared in or be under consideration
for another workshop, conference or a journal, nor may they be under
review or submitted to another forum during the DIDC 2014 review

Hot Topics papers will be included the DIDC 2014 proceedings as a
separate track and will be published by ACM, and will be available
through the ACM Digital Library.

Papers should be prepared in ACM SIG Proceedings format at
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates and
submitted electronically (as a PDF file) via EasyChair. Please select
Hot Topics track.
