Call For Papers

*** Last Mile ***

Second IEEE/ACM International Conference on Big Data Computing
(BDC 2015)

December 07-10, 2015, St. Raphael Resort, Limassol, Cyprus

Co-located with the 8th IEEE/ACM International Conference
on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC 2015)

*** FINAL EXTENDED DEADLINE: 7 August, 2015 ***


Rapid advances in digital sensors, networks, storage, and computation along
with their availability at low cost is leading to the creation of huge collections
of data -- dubbed as Big Data. This data has the potential for enabling new
insights that can change the way business, science, and governments deliver
services to their consumers and can impact society as a whole. This has led
to the emergence of the Big Data Computing paradigm focusing on sensing,
collection, storage, management and analysis of data from variety of sources
to enable new value and insights.

To realize the full potential of Big Data Computing, we need to address
several challenges and develop suitable conceptual and technological
solutions for dealing them. These include life-cycle management of data,
large-scale storage, flexible processing infrastructure, data modeling,
scalable machine learning and data analysis algorithms, techniques for
sampling and making trade-off between data processing time and accuracy,
and dealing with privacy and ethical issues involved in data sensing, storage,
processing, and actions.

The International Symposium on Big Data Computing (BDC) 2015 -- held in
conjunction with 8th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud
Computing (UCC) 2015, December 7-10, 2015, St. Raphael Resort, Limassol,
Cyprus, aims at bringing together international researchers, developers,
policy makers, and users and to provide an international forum to present
leading research activities, technical solutions, and results on a broad range
of topics related to Big Data Computing paradigms, platforms and their
applications. The conference features keynotes, technical presentations,
posters, and workshops.


Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research manuscripts
that demonstrate current research in all areas of Big Data Computing.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

I. Big Data Science
· Analytics
· Algorithms for Big Data
· Energy-efficient Algorithms
· Big Data Search
· Big Data Acquisition, Integration, Cleaning, and Best Practices
· Visualization of Big Data

II. Big Data Infrastructures and Platforms
· Programming Systems
· Cyber-Infrastructure
· Performance evaluation
· Fault tolerance and reliability
· I/O and Data management
· Storage Systems (including file systems, NoSQL, and RDBMS)
· Resource management
· Many-Task Computing
· Many-core computing and accelerators

III. Big Data Security and Policy
· Management Policies
· Data Privacy
· Data Security
· Big Data Archival and Preservation
· Big Data Provenance

IV. Big Data Applications
· Scientific application cases studies on Cloud infrastructure
· Big Data Applications at Scale
· Experience Papers with Big Data Application Deployments
· Data streaming applications
· Big Data in Social Networks
· Healthcare Applications
· Enterprise Applications

One or more best paper awards will be given for outstanding contributed


Authors are invited to submit papers electronically. Submitted manuscripts
should be structured as technical papers and may not exceed 10 letter size
(8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references. Authors should
submit the manuscript in PDF format and make sure that the file will print
on a printer that uses letter size (8.5 x 11) paper. The official language of
the meeting is English. All manuscripts will be reviewed and will be judged
on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, quality of
presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference attendees. Papers
conforming to the above guidelines can be submitted through the BDC 2015
paper submission system:

Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is not
currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not
following these guidelines will be rejected without review and further action
may be taken, including (but not limited to) notifications sent to the heads of
the institutions of the authors and sponsors of the conference. Submissions
received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately
structured may also not be considered. Authors may contact the conference
PC Chair for more information.

At least one author of each paper must be registered for the conference in
order for the paper to be published in the proceedings. Presentation of an
accepted paper at the conference is a requirement of publication. Any paper
that is not presented at the conference will not be included in IEEE Xplore.


Selected papers from BDC 2015 will be invited to extend and submit to the
Special Issue on Big Data Computing in the IEEE Transaction on Cloud
