Introduction (from DataCloud website)

The eighth international workshop on Data-intensive Computing in the Clouds (DataCloud 2017) will provide the scientific community a dedicated forum for discussing new research, development, and deployment efforts in running data-intensive computing workloads on Cloud Computing infrastructures. The DataCloud 2017 workshop will focus on the use of cloud-based technologies to meet the new data intensive scientific challenges that are not well served by the current supercomputers, grids or compute-intensive clouds. We believe the workshop will be an excellent place to help the community define the current state, determine future goals, and present architectures and services for future clouds supporting data intensive computing.


  • Data-intensive cloud computing infrastructure, applications, characteristics and challenges
  • Case studies of data intensive computing in the clouds
  • Performance evaluation of data clouds, data grids, and data centers
  • Energy-efficient data cloud design and management
  • Data placement, scheduling, and interoperability in the clouds
  • Accountability, QoS, and SLAs and more.

Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit papers with unpublished, original work of not more than 8 pages of double column text using single spaced 10 point size on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, as per ACM 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines; document templates can be found at The final papers in PDF format must be submitted online at Papers will be peer-reviewed, and accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings as part of the ACM digital library (in cooperation with SIGHPC). Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.
