[DMANET] Call for papers: International Workshop on Hardware Accelerated Data Mining

Dear All,

We are organizing the International Workshop on Hardware Accelerated Data
Mining, in conjunction with ICDM 2015. IEEE International Conference on
Data Mining (ICDM) is one of the world's premier research conference in
data mining. You can find more details about the workshop here.

I am including the CFP.

Call for papers:
International Workshop on Hardware Accelerated Data Mining (HADM'15) to be
held with IEEE International Conference on Data Mining
14 November 2015, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA.

Data mining is expected to work on increasingly complex workloads (e.g.,
Petabytes of networked-data under real-time constraints) using emerging
hardware accelerators (e.g., commodity and specialized Multi-core, GPUs,
FPGAs, and ASICs) and corresponding programming models (e.g., MapReduce,
GraphLab, CUDA, OpenCL, and OpenACC). The use of hardware accelerators for
mining high-rate data streams is becoming common mainly due to the rapidly
increasing amount of data available for real-time analytics. The idea of
using special-purpose hardware to accelerate computation has a long
tradition in data processing but has thus far not made its way into
mainstream data mining. Many essential issues in this area have yet to be
explored. For instance, large-scale graph computations are commonplace in
many fields. However, this graph data is sparse and highly non-uniform.
Graph structure mining algorithms exhibit weak spatial locality when
processing graphs with power law distributions and such algorithms are
data-intensive and cache-hostile.

The aim of this workshop is to provide a venue for designers,
practitioners, researchers, developers, and industrial/governmental
partners to come together, present and discuss leading research results,
use cases, innovative ideas, challenges, and opportunities that arise from
accelerating mining of big data using new hardware, and identify future
directions and challenges in this area.
