ABSTRACT: Recent decade has witnessed data explosion, and petabyte sized data archives are not uncommon any more. Many traditional application domains are now becoming data intensive. It is estimated that organizations with high-performance computing infrastructures and data centers are doubling the amount of data that they are archiving every year. Processing large datasets using supercomputers alone is not an economical solution. Cloud computing, which is a large-scale distributed computing, has attracted significant attention of both industry and academia in recent years and is fast becoming a cheaper alternative to costly centralized systems. Many recent studies have shown the utility of cloud computing in data mining and knowledge discovery. This workshop intends to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia, government, and industry to discuss new and emerging trends in cloud computing technologies, programming models, and software services and outline the DM/KD approaches that can efficiently exploit this modern computing infrastructure.
