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 Session 1 (06/27 Friday, 14:10-15:10, Lupine) Session Chair: Jianwu Wang, University of California, San Diego
Keynote: Big Data Services in the Cloud , Geoffrey C. Fox (Indiana University, U.S.)

Geoffrey Charles Fox is a world renowned theoretical physicist and computer scientist. Dr. Fox received a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from Cambridge University and is now a Distinguished Professor of Informatics and Computing, and Physics at Indiana University where he is director of the Digital Science Center and Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies at the School of Informatics and Computing. Dr. Fox previously held positions at Caltech, Syracuse University and Florida State University. Dr. Fox has supervised the Ph.D. of 65 students and published over 1200 publications in physics and computer science according to Google Scholar, including his book Parallel Computing Works! Dr. Fox currently works in applying computer science to Bioinformatics, Defense, Earthquake and Ice-sheet Science, Particle Physics and Chemical Informatics. Dr. Fox is principal investigator of FutureGrid - a new cyberinfrastructure test to enable development of new approaches to scientific computing. Dr. Fox is involved in several projects to enhance the capabilities of Minority Serving Institutions.
