[DMANET] IEEE International Workshop on Foundations of Big Data Computing (BigDF 2016)

Dear All,

We are organizing the IEEE International Workshop on Foundations of Big
Data Computing (BigDF 2016), in conjunction with HiPC 2016. Please submit
your papers. The abstract submission deadline is July 24.


IEEE International Workshop on Foundations of Big Data Computing (BigDF
(To be held in conjunction with HiPC 2016)
December 19, 2016, Hyderabad, India

Workshop Webpage: https://sites.google.com/site/hipcbigdf/

What constitutes a Big Data problem? What application domains are best
suited to
benefit from Big Data analytics and computing? What are the traits and
characteristics of an application that make it suited to exploit Big Data
analytics? How can Big Data systems and frameworks be designed to allow the
integration and analysis of complex data sets? How can research in Big Data
Analytics benefit from the latest advances in supercomputing and High
Computing (HPC) architectures? The goal of this workshop is to address
like these that are fundamental to the advancement of Big Data computing,
and in
the process, build a diverse research community that has a shared vision to
advance the state of knowledge and discovery through Big Data computing.

Topics of interest include research contributions and innovative methods in
the following areas (but not limited to):

* Scalable tools, techniques and technologies for Big Data analytics
* Algorithms and Programming Models for Big Data
* Big Data applications - Challenges and Solutions
* Scalable Big Data systems, platforms, services, and management
* Big Data toolkits, workflows, metrics, and provenance.

We invite paper submissions that describe original research contributions in
the area of Big Data computing, and position papers that highlight the
potential challenges and opportunities that arise in Big Data computing.
We also invite short papers that describe work-in-progress original

Regular papers can be up to 8 pages long and short papers can be up to
4 pages long. All submissions will undergo rigorous peer-review by the
technical program committee, and accepted manuscripts will appear in the
workshop proceedings and will be indexed by IEEE digital library. Authors
of the accepted manuscripts will be required to present their work
at the workshop proceedings.
