The 6th International Workshop on Big Data and Cloud Performance 

Nara, Japan, June 27, 2016 


Cloud Data centers are the backbone infrastructure for tomorrow's 
technology. Their advant ages are efficient resource provisioning and low 
operational costs for supporting a wide range of computing needs, be it in 

business, scientific or mobile/pervasive environments. Because of the 
growth in user-defined and user-generated programs, applications and 
the range of services provided at data centers will expand tremendously 
and unpredictably. Particularly, Big Data applications and service present 
unique class of challenge s in Cloud. The high volume of mixed workloads 
the diversity of services offered render the performance optimization of 
centers ever more challenging. Moreover, important optimization criteria, 
as scalability, reliability, manageability, power efficiency, area 
operating cost and many more, often are even mutually exclusive to some 
On top of that, the increasing mobility of users across geographically 
distributed areas adds another dimension to optimizing big data and cloud 
The goal of this workshop is to promote a community-wide discussion to 
and identify suitable strategies to enable effective and scalable 
optimizations. We are looking for papers that present new techniques, 
introduce new theory and methodologies, propose new  research directions, 
discuss strategies for resolving open performance problems on Big Data in 
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): 

Big Data applications and Services 
- Emerging applications
