2015 Int'l Conference on Big Data Intelligence and Computing (DataCom)

19-21 December 2015
Chengdu, China

Big data is a rapidly expanding research area spanning the fields of computer science and information management, and has become a ubiquitous term in understanding and solving complex problems in different disciplinary fields such as engineering, applied mathematics, medicine, computational biology, healthcare, social networks, finance, business, government, education, transportation, and telecommunications.

Sponsored by IEEE, ACM, Elsevier, and Springer, the goal of DataCom 2015 is to establish an international forum for engineers and scientists to present their ideas and experiences in the fields of big data intelligence and computing. DataCom 2015 welcomes paper submissions on innovative work from researchers in academia, industry, and government describing original research work in big data. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version (with at least 30 percent new material) for review and publication in special issues of international journals.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

  • the 5Vs of the data landscape: volume, variety, velocity, veracity, and value;
  • big data science and foundations, analytics, visualization, and semantics;
  • software and tools for big data management;
  • security, privacy, and legal issues specific to big data;
  • big data economy, QoS, and business models;
  • intelligence and scientific discovery;
  • software, hardware, and algorithm codesign, high-performance computing;
  • large-scale recommendation systems and graph analysis;
  • algorithmic, experimental, prototyping and implementation;
  • data-driven innovation, computational modelling and data integration;
  • data intensive computing theorems and technologies;
  • modelling, simulation, and performance evaluation;
  • hardware and infrastructure, green data centers/environmental-friendly perspectives;
  • computing, scheduling and resource management for sustainability; and
  • complex applications in areas where massive data is generated.








Important Dates

  • Submission deadline: 15 September 2015
  • Author notification: 15 October 2015
  • Camera ready papers due: 31 October 2015
  • Registration deadline: 15 November 2015

The DataCom 2015 Organizing Committee invites proposals for one-day workshops affiliated with the conference and that address research areas related to the conference. The workshop proceedings will be published by IEEE CS Press. Submit workshop proposals to workshops chairs via email.

IEEE Int'l Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E)
4-8 April 2016
Berlin, Germany

The 4th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E) seeks to provide a high-quality and comprehensive forum, where researchers and practitioners can exchange information on engineering principles, enabling technologies, and practical experiences related to cloud computing. By bringing together experts that work on different levels of the cloud stack - systems, storage, networking, platforms, databases, and applications, IC2E offers an end-to-end view on the challenges and technologies in cloud computing, fosters research that addresses the interaction between different layers of the stack, and ultimately helps shape the future of cloud-transformed business and society.

We invite submissions of high-quality research papers describing fully developed results or on-going foundational and applied work related to all aspects of cloud engineering. The program committee will interpret “cloud engineering” very broadly - everything from engineering principles to practical experiences on different levels of the cloud stack. We particularly encourage submissions on topics of emerging interest in the research and development communities. We invite submissions on the following topics:

  • big data management, platforms, and analytics;
  • cloud applications and services;
  • cloud programming models, benchmarks, and tools;
  • cloud security, privacy, compliance, and trust;
  • energy management in cloud centers;
  • ybrid cloud integration;
  • metering, pricing, and software licensing;
  • mobile cloud computing;
  • performance, dependability, and service level agreements;
  • resource management and optimization in the cloud;
  • service lifecycle management and automation;
  • virtualization technology;
  • workload deployment and migration; and
  • X as a service, where X includes backend, business process, database, information, infrastructure, network, platform, security, software, and storage.







Important Dates

  • Full papers due: 14 September 2015 (Extended date)
  • Notifications: 5 December 2015
