Call For Papers

The Second International Workshop on
Data Intensive Computing in the Clouds (DataCloud-SC11) 2011
November 14th, 2011
Seattle, Washington, USA

Co-located with with IEEE/ACM International Conference for
High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC11)

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 dataflow 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 second international workshop on Data-intensive Computing in the Clouds
(DataCloud-SC11) 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-SC11 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.

For more information about the workshop, please see To see the 1st workshop's program
agenda, and accepted papers and presentations, please see We are also running a Special
Issue on Data Intensive Computing in the Clouds in the Springer Journal of Grid
Computing with a paper submission deadline of August 16th 2011, which will appear in
print in June 2012.

* 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
* Data placement, scheduling, and interoperability in the clouds
* Accountability, QoS, and SLAs
* Data privacy and protection in a public cloud environment
* Distributed file systems for clouds
* Data streaming and parallelization
* New programming models for data-intensive cloud computing
* Scalability issues in clouds
* Social computing and massively social gaming
* 3D Internet and implications
* Future research challenges in data-intensive cloud computing

Paper Submission and Publication
Authors are invited to submit papers with unpublished, original work of not more than
10 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
We are also seeking position papers of no more than 5 pages in length. A 250 word
abstract (PDF format) must be submitted online at before the deadline of September 2nd,
2011 at 11:59PM PST; the final 5/10 page papers in PDF format will be due on September
9th, 2011 at 11:59PM PST. Papers will be peer-reviewed, and accepted papers will be
published in the workshop proceedings as part of the ACM digital library (pending
approval). Notifications of the paper decisions will be sent out by October 7th, 2011.
Selected excellent work may be eligible for additional post-conference publication as
journal articles. We are currently running a Special Issue on Data Intensive Computing
in the Clouds in the Springer Journal of Grid Computing. Submission implies the
willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. For more
information, please see or send email
