With the emerging technology breakthrough in computing, networking, and storage, the boundary of systems is undergoing fundamental change and is expected to logically disappear. It is the time to rethink system design and management without boundaries towards software-defined ecosystems, i.e., the BigSystem. The basic principles of software-defined mechanisms and policies have witnessed great success in clouds and networking. We are expecting broader, deeper, and greater evolution of these concepts and technologies, and a confluence towards holistic software-defined ecosystems.
This workshop provides an open forum for researchers, practitioners, and system builders to exchange ideas, discuss open problems and challenges, and shape roadmaps towards realizing the vision of BigSystems. BigSystem is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery.
