In recent years, "Big Data" has become a new challenge in many areas, including biological, meteorology, genomics, medicine, healthcare, complex physics simulations, environmental research, Internet search and other scientific and engineering studies and applications. It also affects finance and business informatics and other social sciences. Big data is difficult to work with using most relational database management systems, statistics, data mining and visualization techniques. It requires massively parallel software running on thousands of servers. "Cloud computing", as an important infrastructure for Big data, is facing with more challenges in Big data era.

The BDCC 2013 Program Committee invites submissions of technical papers for BDCC 2013, to be held in Xiamen, China, on Dec 28-30, 2013. Submissions are invited on significant, original, and previously unpublished research on all aspects of Big data and Cloud computing.

Xiamen, also known as Amoy, is a major city with beautiful scenery and unique local culture on the southeast coast of the China. The city was a treaty port in the 19th century and one of the four original Special Economic Zones opened to foreign investment and trade when China began economic reforms in the early 1980s. It is endowed with educational and cultural institutions supported by the overseas Chinese diaspora. In 2006, Xiamen was ranked as China's second "most suitable city for living", as well as China's "most romantic leisure city" in 2011.
