With advances in cloud computing and storage, we are entering a new era when large scale distributed computation and analysis of big data sets becomes feasible. Cloud computing will also enable reliable, scalable, and performant services to be easily created and deployed. This will also have a profound effect not only in the field of computer science, but also in all areas of science, engineering, medicine, and other fields which can benefit from large-scale machine learning and big-data analysis. The Cloud Computing and Big Data (CLD) Symposium solicits high quality original research papers in all aspects of Cloud Computing and Big Data related to improvements in cloud computing platforms and services as well as applications utilizing such platforms.
