Call For Papers


Call for Papers - Submission Due Date: February 17, 2016 (Extended)
The 6th International Workshop on Big Data and Cloud Performance (DCPerf’16)
Naga, Japan, USA, June 27, 2016

in conjunction with ICDCS'16:

The 36th IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems

Cloud data centers are the backbone infrastructure for tomorrow's information
technology. Their advantages are efficient resource provisioning and low
operational costs for supporting a wide range of computing needs, be it in
business, scientific or mobile/pervasive environments. Because of the rapid
growth in user-defined and user-generated programs, applications and files, the
range of services provided at data centers will expand tremendously and
unpredictably. Particularly, Big Data applications and services present a
unique class of challenges in Cloud. The high volume of mixed workloads and the
diversity of services offered render the performance optimization of data
centers ever more challenging. Moreover, important optimization criteria, such
as scalability, reliability, manageability, power efficiency, area density,
operating cost and many more, often are even mutually exclusive to some extent.
On top of that, the increasing mobility of users across geographically
distributed areas adds another dimension to optimizing big data and cloud
The goal of this workshop is to promote a community-wide discussion to find and
identify suitable strategies to enable effective and scalable performance
optimizations. We are looking for papers that present new techniques, introduce
new theory and methodologies, propose new research directions, or discuss
strategies for resolving open performance problems on Big Data in Clouds.
