Workshop on Analytics Platforms for the Cloud


May 18th, 2015
Ischia, Italy
In conjunction with the
ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers 2015


Cloud computing has become popular because of cost, agility, scale, and flexibility. At the same time, the use of flexible analytic platforms such as hadoop, spark, etc. have grown in popularity and are being used to drive the computational side of many types of workloads. Many are now starting to bring these two together to drive efficient deployment of analytic capabilities which can specifically leverage the flexibility and agility of Cloud delivery. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in analytics and cloud computing an end-to-end view on the challenges and opportunities of cloud-based analytics, and enable idea sharing.

Topics of interest are: 

  • Cloud Analytic Models and Platforms
  • Managed Container Technologies
  • Spark and in memory computing
  • End-to-end cloud analytics solutions
  • Efficient Cloud Deployment of Analytic Frameworks
  • Hybrid Cloud Analytics

Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library
