Call for Papers

International Conference on Cloud Computing and Big Data (CCBD)
November 4th-6th, 2015, Taipei

On behalf of CCBD organizing committee, we cordially invite you to
participate in the 6th International Conference on Cloud Computing and
Big Data to be held on Nov. 4th – Nov. 6th, 2015, Taipei

Themes: Big Data, Analytics, Cloud Computing, Mobile/IoT, Social
Networking and their convergence

In recent years, Big Data Analytics, Cloud Computing, Mobile/IoT, and
their convergence have emerged as major drivers for enterprise
transformation and innovation in both business and IT worlds.
Enterprises’ competitiveness is increasingly determined by their
abilities to leverage these technologies. IDC describes the platform
that supports the convergence of these technologies as the third
platform. It is accessed from mobile devices, utilizes big data, and
is cloud based. IoT (Internet of Things), Mobile and Social network
are major sources of Big Data. Cloud Computing provides a scalable
services consumption model and cost-effective delivery platform. Big
data analytics offers the promise of providing valuable insight for
science, engineering, medicine, finance, business, government etc.
Successful application of these technologies helps enterprises
understand customers’ needs and sentiment, make right decisions in
time, improve process efficiency, allow them to mass-customize their
services, and improve products/services to excel in the fast changing
competitive landscape.

CCBD2015 (International Conference on Cloud Computing and Big Data) is
the sixth in its series and is co-sponsored by the Cloud Computing
Association in Taiwan and the Chinese Institute of Electronics, and
technical-sponsored by IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing

for indexing to EI.

Best and selected papers will be recommended to several SCI and EI
indexed journals (NB: Those selected papers to be published directly
by EI indexed Journals will not be included in the conference

Best Paper Awards

The Best Paper Awards honor the author(s) of papers of exceptional
merit accepted for presentation in the conference. The finalist will
be notified before the conference. The winners will be selected and
announced during the conference. The extended version of best papers
and best paper candidates will be recommended to Chinese Journal of
Electronics (CJE, indexed by SCI) and Computes and Electrical
Engineering, (CaEE, indexed by SCI).

Journal Opportunities
