I'm the PC chair for SSDBM 2013. It's a very nice conference specialized in scientific and statistical data management, which includes Big Data topics! We'll be accepting both full research papers and short papers. So consider submitting either complete work or early ideas and vision papers. We are also accepting demo proposals.
I started a BLOG for our group but we do not update it as often as we would like.
