Special Issue on: "Big Data and Cloud Computing Challenges"

Guest Editors:
Prof. Dr. V. Vijayakumar, VIT University, India
Prof. Dr. Syed Akhter Hossain, Daffodil International University, Bangladesh
Prof. Dr. Claudio Guarnaccia, University of Salerno, Italy
Prof. Dr. G. Anderson, University of Botswana, Botswana
Prof. Dr. Rajkumar Buyya, Melbourne University, Australia

This special issue aims to discuss the issues and challenges in maintaining big data and cloud computing, which is now a major threat to our technical environments. It discusses emerging problems such as the data which is growing at a speed greater than the computational speed and also challenges in storing such big data safely.

It also aims to discuss the challenges of virtualisation in cloud computing. It focuses on the development of cloud computing applications with hands on experience including virtualisation. The scope of “virtualisation technologies” includes techniques and concepts to enable virtual machines, virtual networks, virtual storage and virtual applications.

This special issue will also be a platform to create awareness with students, faculties and industrial community and with society regarding the usage of big data and cloud computing.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at ISBCC 2015 (International Symposium on Big Data and Cloud Computing Challenges), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
