Internet and traditional organizations continue to be faced with the challenge of making sense of the mountains of data that are everywhere,
be it the blogs on the Web, transactions performed at Web-commerce sites, data generated by telecom switches, health care systems,
bioinformatics and even in homeland security. In this new data-flooded world, the key question is: How do we analyze these enormous
amounts of data in a timely and cost-effective manner? Clearly, the traditional model of building bigger machines and more storage does not
apply here as the data is growing at a rate which is impossible to keep up with using scale-up methods. The promising solutions, such as those
based on MapReduce, use racks of commodity servers with locally attached storage and are able to scale out quickly at low cost. In general, there
is a need to assemble resources on demand ? the motivation for Cloud Computing. Broadly speaking, Cloud Computing represents the desire to migrate
from the traditional server-centric computing architecture to a totally network-centric architecture where logical computing resources can be
assembled flexibly, on demand. MapReduce is a software framework introduced by Google, in an attempt to bring the benefits of cloud computing to
tackling the problems posed by massive datasets. While the early signs in terms of support from the developer community, academia and industry are
quite encouraging, there are many open problems that still need to be addressed. Some of them are:

* Is there a class of problems/workloads for which this distributed computing over commodity machines is the best solution?
* How amenable are these algorithms to expression using MapReduce or other simple paradigms?
* How do we define and use effective and practical metrics to compare the capability of different solutions being offered?
* Do we need different solutions for different data types or algorithms? How do we build bridges between them?
* Are there viable alternatives, such as Pregel or others for important sets of problems?
* How do we integrate these new computing platforms with existing traditional data warehouse-based analytics systems?
* Challenges in managing the massive datasets - Security, versioning, archiving?
* Tackling the legal/moral challenges associated with mining those datasets?

We invite researchers working in any of the following areas to participate:

* Data intensive applications of cloud computing
* Algorithms for massive data analysis such as data mining, statistics, network, and predictive algorithms
* Distributed data management, retrieval and mining
* Novel architectures for cloud computing
* Map-reduce and its generalizations
* Large scale social media analysis
* Privacy Preservation in Cloud
* Parallel databases
* Storage as a Service
* Cloud resource management
* Fault Tolerance Assessment and Management
* Reliability of applications running over the cloud
