Both cloud computing and big data are emerging as two frontiers in the past few years. Cloud computing is being increasingly used to tackle big data problems. To capture the latest scientific and engineering advancements in the two fields, the International Workshop on Cloud Computing and Big Data (IWCCBD) is organized to a) explore and discuss the big data challenges in social and physical sciences; b) bring together professionals with different problems, backgrounds and expertise to address similar kinds of issues with common cloud computing platform and big data competencies; c) foster ideation supporting next generation cloud computing infrastructure solutions that integrate new spatiotemporal cloud computing tools and big data processing technologies for improved collective response to urgent, emergent, and wicked problems and events.

To reflect the international nature of big data and cloud computing, the workshop convenes July 25-27, 2016 at George Mason University, Fairfax, VA, USA. This call for participation engages experts from academia, industry, non-profit and government organizations across an ever-broadening spectrum of cloud computing and big data fields of application and research.

We invite thematic contributions including, but are not limited to:

  • Applied big data methodologies and theory.
  • Big Data processing, analysis and visualization using cloud computing.
  • Mining and analyses methodologies to extract interesting principles/patterns from big data in various domains, such as economic, climate change, ocean and environmental science, disaster, security, and public health.
  • New cloud computing hardware, software, and tools or the other cutting-edging computational technologies (e.g. GPU, MapReduce, HPC, and neural computing) utilizing the principles/patterns.
  • Digital Earth, Public Health, Economics, Natural Disasters, and other applications of cloud computing and big data studies.
