The boom of cloud technologies and cloud data storage has been a forerunner and enabler to the growth of Big Data. These technologies have substantial advantages over conventional physical deployments. However, better performance and efficiency of data analysis require a clear distinction of the boundaries between the private clouds, public clouds, and Internet of Things (IoT). A common approach to tackle this issue is to develop Big Data in the Cloud to deliver everything as a Service. The projects in this domain regularly exhibit unpredictable, bursting, or immense computing power and storage needs. At the same time, the stakeholders expect swift, inexpensive, and dependable products and project outcomes. The main objective of this special issue is to assort these challenges into different categories and seek the best articles, demonstrations, recommendations and solutions in the following areas:


  • Innovative Cloud Infrastructure for Big Data
  • Mobile-Driven Cloud Computing
  • Scientific Computing, Data Management and Analytics in Cloud
  • Big Data and Cloud for Enterprise, Government and Society
  • Big Data for Cloud-assisted, IoT-based Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Big Data and Cloud for Improving Resilient Infrastructure
  • Automatic Business Process and Workflow Management in Clouds
  • Multimedia Applications in Mobile Cloud Environments
  • Big Data and Cloud Research and Project Experience in Biomedical, Energy and Environment Control, Service Systems in Tourism, Transportation and Urban Planning, Vertical Markets – Telecom, Sensors, Social Networking, Smart Cities, Food and Agriculture.
  • Case Studies of Big Data Value Creation

This special issue will consider substantially extended versions of papers presented at ICBDCC17 – International Conference on Big Data and Cloud Computing (Conference URL: as well as external submissions.
