[DMANET] MASSIVE 2013: Call for Papers

Fifth Workshop on Massive Data Algorithmics (MASSIVE 2013)

September 5, 2013

Sophia Antipolis, France

In connection with ALGO'13 and organized by
Center for Massive Data Algorithmics (MADALGO)

Webpage: www.madalgo.au.dk/massive2013

Aim and Scope

Tremendous advances in our ability to acquire, store and process data,
as well as the pervasive use of computers in general, have resulted in
a spectacular increase in the amount of data being collected. This
availability of high-quality data has led to major advances in both
science and industry. In general, society is becoming increasingly
data driven, and this trend is likely to continue in the coming years.

The increasing number of applications processing massive data means
that in general focus on algorithm efficiency is increasing. However,
the large size of the data, and/or the small size of many modern
computing devices, also means that issues such as memory hierarchy
architecture often play a crucial role in algorithm efficiency. Thus
the availability of massive data also means many new challenges for
algorithm designers.

The aim of the workshop on massive data algorithmics is to provide a
forum for researchers from both academia and industry interested in
algorithms for massive dataset problems. The scope of the workshop
includes both fundamental algorithmic problems involving massive data,
as well as algorithms for more specialized problems in, e.g.,
graphics, databases, statistics and bioinformatics. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:

- I/O-efficient algorithms
- Cache-oblivious algorithms
- Memory hierarchy efficient algorithms
- Streaming algorithms
- Sublinear algorithms
- Parallel algorithms for massive data problem
- Engineering massive data algorithms

Paper submission

We invite submissions of extended abstracts (at most 10 pages not counting
references) of original research. Extended abstract should be submitted through
the EasyChair website by July 26. Authors will be notified about acceptance by
August 12, and final versions will be due on August 23. Accepted extended
abstracts will be collected in a booklet, which will be distributed at the
workshop. There will be no formal proceedings, so work presented at the
workshop can also be (or have been) presented at other conferences. An author
of each accepted abstract is expected to give a presentation of the abstract at
the workshop.

The workshop will take place on September 5, 2013 in Sophia Antipolis, France,
as part of ALGO 2013 immediately following the European Symposium on Algorithms
(ESA). Participants for MASSIVE should register through the on-line registration
on the ALGO registration webpage on http://algo2013.dakini.fr/ (registration
opens on June 18th). All researchers and industry people interested in massive
data algorithmics are encouraged to attend the workshop.
