** 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

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 2016 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 2016 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

Acceptance notification: October 1st, 2016
Final papers due: October 10th, 2016

** 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Authors are invited to submit papers with unpublished, original work of not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;
