The 9th IEEE International Conference on Big Data and Cloud Computing (BDCloud 2019)

Xiamen, China, 16-18 December 2019

Sponsored by
IEEE, IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Technical Committee of Scalable Computing (TCSC),and Minjiang University


Big data is an emerging paradigm applied to datasets whose size is beyond the ability of commonly used software tools to capture, manage, and process the data within a tolerable elapsed time. Such datasets are often from various sources (Variety) yet unstructured such as social media, sensors, scientific applications, surveillance, video and image archives, internet texts and documents, internet search indexing, medical records, business transactions and web logs; and are of large size (Volume) with fast data in/out (Velocity). More importantly, big data has to be of high value (Value) and establish trust in it for business decision making (Veracity).

Cloud computing is positioning itself as an emerging platform for delivering information infrastructures and resources as IT services. Customers (enterprises or individuals) can provision and deploy Cloud services via pay-as-you-go pricing models saving huge capital investments in their own IT infrastructures. As estimated by IDC, by 2020, about 40% data globally would be touched with Cloud Computing. Cloud Computing provides strong storage, computation and distributed capability in support of Big Data processing.

The 9th IEEE International Conference on Big Data and Cloud Computing (BDCloud 2019) is the next event in a series of highly successful International Conferences, previously held as BDCloud 2018 (Australia), BDCloud 2017 (Italy), BDCloud 2016 (Atlanta, USA), BDCloud 2015 (Chengdu, China), BDCloud 2014 (Sydney, Australia), CGC2013 (Karlsruhe,Germany), CGC2012 (Xiangtan, China), and CGC 2011 (Australia).

BDCloud 2019 will be hosted in Xiamen, a beautiful port city in southeast China's Fujian province, China, beside the Taiwan Strait. Xiamen is ideally placed to base a trip to branch out visiting places such as the romantic Gulangyu Island, the famous South Putuo Temple, and Water Garden Expo Park. Part of Xiamen's charm lies in its narrow alleyways and small, hidden shops.

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers to BDCloud 2019. All accepted papers are expected to be included in IEEE Xplore and will be indexed by Engineering Index (EI). The authors of selected best papers will be invited post conference to extend their contributions for special issues of prestigious journals to be planned in conjunction with the conference.
