Dramatic growth in data and equally rapid decline in the cost of highly integrated clusters has spurred the emergence of the data center as the platform of choice for a growing class of data-intensive applications. To encourage conversations between those developing applications, algorithms, software, and hardware for such "cloud" platforms, we are convening the second workshop on Cloud Computing and Its Applications (CCA'09).

This workshop will provide two days of invited talks on cloud computing, data intensive scalable computing, and related topics.

Topics of interest include:

compute and storage cloud architectures and implementations
map-reduce and its generalizations
programming models and tools
novel data-intensive computing applications
data intensive scalable computing
distributed data intensive computing
content distribution systems for large data
data management within and across data centers
models, frameworks and systems for cloud security
