Aim and Scope

Big Data Management is of relevant interest at now, and it can be considered as one of the most emerging research topics we deal with. In particular, the management of Big Data in distributed settings (like Clouds) is demanding for innovative models, techniques and algorithms capable of dealing with the well-known Vs of such kind of data.

Indeed, traditional approaches are not suitable to manage Big Data in distributed environments, due to the Volume, Velocity and Variety of Big Data. Starting from this evidence, recently we experienced novel proposals that are trying to creating applications and systems that, running on top of distributed settings like Clouds, effectively and efficiently manage Big Data as to support a wide range of contexts, among which analytics, knowledge discovery and cybersecurity methods are just some relevant examples.

Despite these initiatives, lot of work still needs to be done in such research area, as it encompasses a large collection of topics ranging from data management algorithms to high-performance techniques. Topics are both of theoretical nature (e.g., managing uncertain and imprecise distributed Big Data) and practical nature (e.g., Big Data dissemination in distributed environments).

The aim of the 1st International Workshop on Distributed Big Data Management (DBDM 2016) is to capture the new research trends and results in terms of models, techniques, algorithms, architecture and applications for the management of Big Data in distributed environments. This workshop will also identify potential research directions and technologies that will drive innovations within this domain. We anticipate this workshop to establish a pathway for the development of future-generation large-scale Big Data management systems.

The DBDM 2016 workshop focuses on all the research aspects of distributed management of Big Data. Among these, an unrestricted list is the following one:

The 1st International Workshop on Distributed Big Data Management (DBDM 2016) will be held in conjunction with the 16th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing (IEEE/ACM CCGRID 2016), in Cartagena, Colombia, during May 16, 2018, and it focuses on these aspects, by posing the emphasis on a theoretical as well as a practical point of view, and provides a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in distributed big data management to meet and exchange preliminary ideas and mature results.


Workshop Location

Hilton Cartagena Hotel, Cartagena, Colombia.
