Scalable Cloud Data Management Workshop 2021
in conjunction with the IEEE Big Data 2021 in Orlando, Florida, USA
(now taking place virtually)
Workshop Website:

The 10th Workshop on Scalable Cloud Data Management in conjunction
with the IEEE International Conference on Big Data 2021 and tackles
the manifold new topics in the area of cloud data management. The
workshop is focused on new research challenges for scalable databases
and data processing in the context of cloud computing. SCDM 2020 was
successfully held in conjunction with the IEEE BigData 2020.

The increasing adoption of cloud computing for databases and data
services introduces a variety of new research challenges. To leverage
elastic cloud resources, scalability has to be a fundamental
architectural design trait of these new cloud databases. This
challenge has manifested itself in new data models (“NoSQL”),
replication, caching and partitioning schemes, relaxed consistency
and transaction guarantees, as well as new protocols, APIs, and
storage services. This workshop invites submissions about new
technologies enabling databases for cloud environments and offering
them as services (Database-as-a-Service). We solicit research on
novel database designs and their distribution and storage mechanisms
as well as scalable data and data processing services. The
application side of cloud databases is equally important, as real
use cases might motivate new programming models, APIs, and
web-enabled interfaces. We are convinced that bringing together cloud
computing, service design, and data architectures in this workshop
will contribute to this exciting new field.

The topics of this workshop include, but are not limited to:
- Database-as-a-Service, Backend-as-a-Service, Multi-Tenancy
- Machine Leaning Methods for Data Management
- Elasticity and Scalability for Cloud Data Management Systems
