Submission deadline (final extension)

October 1, 2017

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. As scientific applications become more data intensive, the management of data resources and data flow between the storage and compute resources is becoming the main bottleneck. 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 science.

The eighth international workshop on Data-intensive Computing in the Clouds (DataCloud 2017) 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 2017 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.

Submission Guidelines
Authors are invited to submit papers with unpublished, original work of not more than 8 pages of double column text using single spaced 10 point size on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, as per ACM 8.5 x 11 manuscript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; document templates can be found at http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates. The final papers in PDF format must be submitted online at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=datacloud2017. Papers will be peer-reviewed, and accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings as part of the ACM digital library (in cooperation with SIGHPC). Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.
