KDCloud 2014 - 5th International Workshop on Knowledge Discovery Using Cloud and Distributed Computing Platforms In Cooperation with IEEE ICDM, 14 December 2014, Schenzen, China
Workshop URL:

The 5th International Workshop on Knowledge Discovery Using Cloud and Distributed Computing Platforms (KDCloud, 2014) provides an international platform to share and discuss recent research results in adopting cloud and distributed computing resources for data mining and knowledge discovery tasks.

Synopsis: Processing large datasets using dedicated supercomputers alone is not an economical solution. Recent trends show that distributed computing is becoming a more practical and economical solution for many organizations. Cloud computing, which is a large-scale distributed computing, has attracted significant attention of both industry and academia in recent years. Cloud computing is fast becoming a cheaper alternative to costly centralized systems. Many recent studies have shown the utility of cloud computing in data mining, machine learning and knowledge discovery.
This workshop intends to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia, government, and industry to discuss new and emerging trends in cloud computing technologies, programming models, and software services and outline the data mining and knowledge discovery approaches that can efficiently exploit this modern computing infrastructures. This workshop also seeks to identify the greatest challenges in embracing cloud computing infrastructure for scaling algorithms to petabyte sized datasets. Thus, we invite all researchers, developers, and users to participate in this event and share, contribute, and discuss the emerging challenges in developing data mining and knowledge discovery solutions and frameworks around cloud and distributed computing platforms.

Topics: The major topics of interest to the workshop include but are not limited to:

- Programing models and tools needed for data mining, machine learning, and knowledge discovery
- Scalability and complexity issues
- Security and privacy issues relevant to KD community
- Best use cases: are there a class of algorithms that best suit to cloud and distributed computing platforms
- Performance studies comparing clouds, grids, and clusters
- Performance studies comparing various distributed file systems for data intensive applications
- Customizations and extensions of existing software infrastructures such as Hadoop for streaming, spatial, and spatiotemporal data mining
- Applications: Earth science, climate, energy, business, text, web and performance logs, medical, biology, image and video.
- Proceedings: Accepted papers will be included in a ICDM Workshop Proceedings volume, to be published by IEEE Computer Society Press, which will also be included in the IEEE Digital Library.

Paper Submission: This is an open call-for-papers. We invite both full papers (max 10 pages) describing mature work and short papers (max 6 pages) describing work-in-progress or case studies. Only original and high-quality papers conforming to the ICDM 2014 standard guidelines will be considered for this workshop. Papers should be at most 10 pages in the IEEE 2-column format (for IEEE Computer Society conference proceedings). Since 2011, ICDM has a triple-blind submission and review policy. Authors must hence not use identifying information in the text of the paper and bibliographies must be adjusted where necessary to preserve anonymity. You are strongly encouraged to print and double check your PDF file before its submission, especially if your paper contains Asian/European language symbols (such as Chinese/Korean characters or English letters with European fonts).

Key Dates
Paper Submission - September 26, 2014
Author Notification - October 10, 2014
Camera Ready Due - October 17, 2014
