Big data is an emerging paradigm applied to datasets whose size is beyond
the ability of commonly used software tools to capture, manage, and process
the data within a tolerable elapsed time. Such datasets are often from
various sources (Variety) yet unstructured such as social media, sensors,
scientific applications, surveillance, video and image archives, Internet
texts and documents, Internet search indexing, medical records, business
transactions and web logs; and are of large size (Volume) with fast data
in/out (Velocity). More importantly, big data has to be of high value
(Value) and establish trust in it for business decision making (Veracity).

Cloud computing is positioning itself as an emerging platform for
delivering information infrastructures and resources as IT services.
Customers (enterprises or individuals) can provision and deploy Cloud
services via pay-as-you-go pricing models saving huge capital investments
in their own IT infrastructures.

As estimated by IDC, by 2020, about 40% data globally would be touched with
Cloud Computing. Cloud Computing provides strong storage, computation and
distributed capability in support of Big Data processing.

BDCloud (Big Data and Cloud Computing) was created to provide a prime
international forum for researchers, industry practitioners and domain
experts to exchange the latest advances in Big Data and Cloud Computing as
well as their synergy.

Submission Guidelines
Submissions must include an abstract, keywords, the e-mail address of the
corresponding author and should not exceed 8 pages for main conference,
including tables and figures in IEEE CS format. The template files for
LATEX or WORD can be downloaded here. All paper submissions must represent
original and unpublished work. Each submission will be peer reviewed by at
least three program committee members. Submission of a paper should be
regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one
of the authors will register for the conference and present the work.
Submit your paper(s) in PDF file at the submission site:

Accepted and presented papers will be included into the IEEE
Conference Proceedings published by IEEE CS Press. Authors of accepted
papers, or at least one of them, are requested to register and present
their work at the conference, otherwise their papers may be removed from
the digital libraries of IEEE CS and EI after the conference.

Distinguished papers will be selected for special issues in Information
Sciences, Future Generation Computer Systems, Journal of Parallel and
Distributed Computing, Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience.
