CFP: Special Issue on Service and Cloud Based Data Integration at Springer Journal of Grid Computing (Extended deadline: Nov. 15, 2012)

    Special Issue on Service and Cloud Based Data Integration

    Springer Journal of Grid Computing




Integration and synthesis of heterogeneous, autonomous and distributed 
data sources have been an essential and hard issue in enterprise 
computing, scientific computing and social computing. It is not always 
feasible to achieve effective data integration around definite schemas 
when there are mismatches in cross-domain integration and when such 
issues as compatibility, scalability, timeliness, and user manipulation 
are concerned. Many traditional data integration approaches/frameworks 
begin to show their limitations, especially when dealing with situations 
like data deluge and data source evolution. Service Oriented 
Architecture, Cloud computing and Web 2.0 techniques have brought light 
to dealing with these hard issues. Recent years have seen some important 
progresses and potentials. Some "Data as a Service" applications target 
fast, on-demand data integration and latest data provisioning. 
Meanwhile, SOA is being employed by many large projects to deal with 
data collection, integration and discovery challenges across data 

The Special Issue on Service and Cloud Based Data Integration will 
provide the scientific and industrial community a dedicated forum, 
within the prestigious Springer Journal of Grid Computing, for 
presenting novel models, methodologies, and solution patterns that 
address the data integration issue and fit in the service and cloud 
based settings. This special issue will focus on the use of service 
and/or cloud based technologies to meet the new data integration 
challenges that are not well served by the current approaches. We 
believe this venue will be an excellent place to help researchers, 
practitioners and vendors in this community show latest progresses, 
determine future goals, and present techniques for future development of 
data integration.

may not have appeared in or be under consideration for another workshop, 
conference or a journal, nor may they be under review or submitted to 
another forum during the review process. Submitted papers may not exceed 
20 single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5x11 
inch pages (1" margins), including figures, tables, and references. Note 
that accepted papers will likely be between 15 to 20 pages, depending on 
a variety of factors. For more information for preparing the submitted 
papers, please see, 
under "Instructions for Authors". The papers (PDF format) must be 
submitted online at <> 
before the deadline. Please specify the article type to be "special 
issue: data integration" when submitting the paper on the website. For
