The Special Issue on Many-Task Computing (MTC) in the Cloud will provide the scientific community a dedicated forum, within the prestigious IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing journal, for presenting new research, development, and deployment efforts of loosely coupled large scale applications on Cloud Computing infrastructure. MTC, the theme of this special issue, encompasses loosely coupled applications, which are generally composed of many tasks to achieve some larger application goal. This special issue will cover challenges that can hamper efficiency and utilization in running applications on large-scale systems, such as local resource manager scalability and granularity, efficient utilization of raw hardware, parallel file-system contention and scalability, data management, I/O management, reliability at scale, and application scalability. We welcome paper submissions in theoretical, simulations, and systems topics with special consideration to papers addressing the intersection of petascale/exascale challenges with large-scale cloud computing. We seek submission of papers that present new, original and innovative ideas for the "first" time in TCC (Transactions on Cloud Computing). That means, submission of "extended versions" of already published works (e.g., conference/workshop papers) is not encouraged unless they contain significant number of "new and original" ideas/contributions along with more than 49% brand "new" material. For more information on this special issue, please see http://datasys.cs.iit.edu/events/TCC-MTC15/.
Topics of Interest
We seek submission of papers that present new, original and innovative ideas for the "first" time in TCC (Transactions on Cloud Computing). That means, submission of "extended versions" of already published works (e.g., conference/workshop papers) will only be encouraged if they contain significant number of "new and original" ideas/contributions along with more than 49% brand "new" material. TCC expects submissions to be complete in all respects including author names, affiliation, bios etc. We aim to cover topics related to Many-Task Computing on Clouds.

Mobile cloud computing represents one of the latest developments in cloud computing advancement. In particular, mobile cloud computing extends cloud computing services to the mobile domain by enabling mobile applications to access external computing and storage resources available in the cloud. Not only mobile applications are no longer limited by the computing and data storage limitations within mobile devices, nevertheless adequate offloading of computation intensive processes also has the potential to prolong the battery life.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Paper submission: 1 May 2015
First Round Decisions: 15 August 2015
Major Revisions Due: 15 September 2015
Final Decisions: 15 November 2015

The IEEE Transactions on Big Data (TBD), publishes peer reviewed articles with big data as the main focus. The articles will provide cross disciplinary innovative research ideas and applications results for big data including novel theory, algorithms and applications.
Research areas for big data include, but are not restricted to, big data analytics, big data visualization, big data curation and management, big data semantics, big data infrastructure, big data standards, big data performance analyses, intelligence from big data, scientific discovery from big data security, privacy, and legal issues specific to big data. Applications of big data in the fields of endeavor where massive data is generated are of particular interest.
