Second International Workshop on Data Management in the Cloud
(DMC 2013)

In Conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering

April 8, 2013 - Brisbane, Australia

Workshop Overview

Cloud computing has emerged as a promising computing and business model. By decoupling the management of the infrastructure (cloud providers) from its use (cloud tenants), and by allowing the sharing of massive infrastructures, cloud computing delivers unprecedented economical and scalability benefits for existing applications and enables many new scenarios. This comes at the cost of increased complexity in managing a highly multi-tenant infrastructure and limited visibility/access posing new questions on attribution, pricing, isolation, scalability, fault-tolerance, load balancing, etc. This is particularly challenging for stateful, data-intensive applications.

This unique combination of opportunities and challenges attracted much attention from both academia and industry. The DMC workshop aims at bringing researchers and practitioners in cloud computing and data management systems together to discuss the research issues at the intersection of these two areas, and also to draw more attention from the larger data management and systems research communities to this new and highly promising field.

Topics

The DMC workshop calls for contributions that address fundamental research, system issues, and industrial experiences in cloud data management including, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Elasticity for could data management systems
  • Resource and workload management in cloud databases
  • Multi tenancy / isolation
  • High availability and reliability in cloud databases
  • Cloud computing infrastructures design for cloud data services
  • Transactional models for cloud databases
  • Virtualization and cloud databases
  • Distributed and massively parallel query processing
  • Analytics in the cloud
  • Storage architectures and technologies for cloud databases
  • Privacy and security in cloud data management
  • Mobile cloud data management
  • Cross-platform interoperability
  • Service-level agreements
  • Economic/business models and pricing policies
  • Novel data-intensive/data-rich computing applications
