*DataCloud-2015: The 6th International Workshop on Data Intensive Computing
in the Clouds*
*in conjunction with SC'15 in Austin, TX on Nov. 15th.*


Applications and experiments in all areas of science and engineering 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

This year's DataCloud workshop will be a special one, which will feature
all invited talks from both academia and industry with a focused topic: *data
analysis infrastructure and use cases at large scale*. The topics will

   - New programming models for data-intensive cloud computing
   - Scalability issues in data analysis in the clouds
   - Large-scale data analysis pipelines.
   - Big data management system
   - Performance evaluation of data clouds and data centers
   - Data-aware resource management and scheduling in the clouds or data
   - Case study of large-scale data analytics in specific scientific or
   engineering applications

*Currently confirmed talks include:*

Keynote: *Why would you NOT use public clouds for your big compute

Rob Futrick (Cycle Computing)

*Scientific Computing Meets Big Data Technology: An Astronomy Use Case*

Zhao Zhang (AMPLab, UC Berkeley)

*Data Pipelines at Google*
