I wanted to help get the word out concerning the final call for papers for the 2017 IEEE Big Data Congress. The deadline is February 28, 2017. This meeting is part of an annual gang of meetings including the IEEE Cloud conference, the IEEE International Conference on Web Services and others. The conferences are going to be in Honolulu, Hawaii June 25 – June 30, 2017.
The Big Data meeting will have four tracks: research, applications, short papers and special topics. The special topics including vision papers to point out emerging challenges, papers that describe new data sets and benchmarks, experience and surveys.
The full call for papers is here: http://www.ieeebigdata.org/2017/cfp.html.
Should be a good meeting.
The IEEE Cloud Computing Journal is going to publish a special issue on the topic of Cloud-Native applications. This is an extremely interesting topic and it cuts to the heart of what makes the cloud a platform that is, in many ways, fundamentally different from what we have seen before.
What is “cloud-native”? That is what we want you to tell us. Roger Barga from Amazon, Neel Sundaresan from Microsoft and this blogger have been invited to be guest editors. But we want you to tell us soon. The deadline is March 1, 2017. The papers do not need to be long (3,000 to 5,000 words) and some of the topics possible include:
- Frameworks to make it easier for industry to build cloud-native applications;
- Educational approaches and community based organizations that can promote cloud-native design concepts;
- The role of open source for building cloud-native applications;
- VM and container orchestration systems for managing cloud-native designs;
- Efficient mechanisms to make legacy applications cloud-native;
- Comparing applications – one cloud-native and the other not – in terms of performance, security, reliability, maintainability, scalability, etc.;
