The Fourth Workshop on Scalable Cloud Data Management (SCDM 2016)
is co-located with the IEEE BigData Conference 2016
and tackles the manifold new topics in the area of cloud data management.
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.

Oct 20, 2016: Due date for full paper submission
Nov 5, 2016: Notification of paper acceptance to authors
Nov 15, 2016: Camera-ready of accepted papers
Dec 5, 2016: Workshop

Research papers submitted to SCDM should present original completed or ongoing research in the areas of cloud data management
as listed above. Submitted papers have a length of up to 10 pages in the IEEE 2-column format. For templates and details,
please visit

The workshop proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.


The workshop will include a special session adressing the activities of the projects funded by the technology
program “Smart Data – Data Innovations” by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
The goal is to provide a basis for discussion and link international research activities to the efforts
of the funded projects.
