Two types of posters and demos:

1. Proceedings published posters and demos: Submission is a 2-page short paper describing the post/demo content, research, relevance and importance to Big Data, Cloud Computing or related topics. If accepted, the 2-page short paper will be published in the main conference proceedings together with regular research papers. Each accepted poster or demo must register to the main conference with full registration.

2. Web published posters and demos: Submission is a 1-page extended abstract. Such posters/demos will not be included in the conference proceedings, but will be published on the conference website.

Both types of posters/demos will be displayed during the conference.



Please email your posters/demos to with the email subject as "BDCloud2014 poster demo submission".
