IEEE 2014 Second International Workshop on Service and Cloud Based Data Integration (SCDI 2014)
June 27, 2014, at Hilton Anchorage, Alaska, USA
within IEEE SERVICES 2014


In recent years, the trend towards publishing data on the Web is gaining momentum. People have witnessed a sharp growth of diversities and amounts of available data. Dynamic data like sensor data also emerges, which is constantly changing and hard to manage. Integration and synthesis of these diverse, heterogeneous, autonomous and large-scale data have been an essential and hard issue in enterprise computing, scientific computing and social computing. It is not always feasible to achieve effective data integration around definite schemas when there are mismatches in cross-domain integration and when such issues as compatibility, scalability, timeliness, and user manipulation are concerned. Service Oriented Architecture and Cloud computing have brought light to dealing with these hard issues. Cloud computing is becoming more and more popular in storing, retrieving and managing such distributed and large-scale data. SOA is being employed by large projects like Data Conservancy to deal with data collection, integration and discovery challenges across data repositories. Some "Data as a Service" applications, such as Google Public Data Explorer and WCF Data Service, target rich, on-demand and latest data provisioning. Following the success of the first SCDI workshop collocated with the EDOC 2012 conference ( and a SCDI special issue at Springer Grid Computing Journal (, the workshop intends to bring researchers, practitioners and vendors together to discuss and share ideas and experiences. It fosters novel models, methodologies, and solution patterns that address the data integration issue and fit in the service and cloud based settings. This workshop will focus on the use of service and/or cloud based technologies to meet the new data integration challenges that are not well served by the current approaches.

Workshop Program is at Besides six regular paper presentations, we are excited to announce Dr. Geoffrey C. Fox will present a key note, titled Big Data Services in the Cloud, in the workshop.

Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit full papers (about 8 pages) or short papers (about 4 pages) as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines (download Word templates or LaTeX templates). The submitted papers can only be in the format of PDF or WORD. Please follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers, respectively. All papers must be submitted via the confhub submission system for the SCDI workshop:

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the workshop and present the paper. First time users need to register with the system first (see these instructions for details). All the accepted papers by the workshops will be included in the Proceedings of the IEEE 10th World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2014) which will be published by IEEE Computer Society.
