Cloud Computing and Its Applications 2008 (CCA-08)
October 22-23, 2008
Gleacher Center
Chicago, Illinois


Dramatic growth in data and equally rapid decline in the cost of
highly integrated clusters has spurred the emergence of the data
center as the platform of choice for a growing class of data-intensive
applications. To encourage conversations between those developing
applications, algorithms, software, and hardware for such "cloud"
platforms, we are convening the first workshop on Cloud Computing and
its Applications (CCA'08). This workshop will include a mixture of
invited and contributed talks on cloud computing, data intensive
scalable computing, and related topics.

Topics of interest include:
- compute and storage cloud architectures and implementations
- map-reduce and its generalizations
- programming models and tools
- novel data-intensive computing applications
- data intensive scalable computing
- distributed data intensive computing
- content distribution systems for large data
- data management within and across data centers

If you would like to give a contributed talk, please submit
a five page extended abstract by August 1, 2008.  These submissions
will also be used to select papers for a poster session.
Extended abstracts should be submitted to:
