The Second Workshop on Scalable Cloud Data Management (SCDM 2014) is a workshop co-located with the IEEE BigData Conference 2014 and created to tackle the manifold new topics in the area of cloud data management. The last SCDM was successfully held in conjunction with the IEEE BigData 2013.

The workshop is focused on new research challenges for scalable databases and data processing in the context of cloud computing:

The topics of this workshop include, but are not limited to:

-Database as a Service, Multi-tenancy
-Elasticity and Scalability for Cloud Data Management Systems
-New Protocols, Service Interfaces and Data Models for Cloud Databases
-Polyglot Persistence, NoSQL, Schemaless Data Modeling, Integration
-Data-Centric Web-Services, RESTful Data Services
-Database Architectures for Mobile and Web Clients
-Content Delivery Networks, Caching, Load-Balancing, Web-scale workloads
-Virtualization for Cloud databases, Storage Structures and Indexing
-Frameworks and Systems for Parallel and Distributed Computing
-Scalable Machine Learning, Analytics and Data Science
-Resource and Workload Management in Cloud Databases
-Tunable and Eventual Consistency, Latency
-High Availability, Reliability, Failover
-Transactional Models for Cloud Databases
-Query Languages and Processing, Programming Models
-Consistency, Replication and Partitioning
-CAP, Data Structures and Algorithms for Eventually Consistent Stores

The increasing adoption of cloud computing for databases and data services introduces a variety of new research challenges. To leverage elastic cloud resources, scalability has to be a fundamental architectural design trait of these new cloud databases. This challenge has manifested in new data models (“NoSQL”), replication, caching and partitioning schemes, relaxed consistency and transaction guarantees as well as new protocols, APIs and storage services. This workshop invites submissions about new technologies enabling databases for cloud environments and offering them as services (Database-as-a-Service). We solicit research on novel database designs and their distribution and storage mechanisms as well as scalable data and data-processing services. The application side of cloud databases is equally important, as it might impose new programming models, APIs and web-enabled interfaces. We are convinced that bringing together cloud computing, service design and data architectures in this workshop will contribute to this exciting new field.

Sept 14, 2014: Deadline for paper submissions
Sept 20, 2014: Notification of paper acceptance to authors
Oct 5, 2014: Camera-ready of accepted papers
October 27-30, 2014: SCDM 2014 Workshop
