[DMANET] Second: CFP for the BeyondMR 2017 workshop at SIGMOD

* Call for papers *

The 4th Workshop on Algorithms and Systems for MapReduce and Beyond, May 19, 2017.

Held in conjunction with SIGMOD 2017
Raleigh, NC, USA, May 14-19, 2017


Author: Ke Yi, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, China

Title: The relationships among coarse-grained parallel models


The third BeyondMR workshop aims to explore algorithms, computational
models, architectures, languages and interfaces for systems that need
large-scale parallelization and systems designed to support efficient
parallelization and fault tolerance. These include specialized programming
and data-management systems based on MapReduce and extensions, graph
processing systems, data-intensive workflow and dataflow systems.

We invite submissions on topics such as:

Frameworks for Large-Scale Analytical Processing:
- Models, architectures and languages for data processing pipelines,
data-intensive workflows, networks of operations/MapReduce jobs, dataflows,
and data-mashups.
- Analysis of programs for workflow systems, e.g., Spark.
- Expressing and parallelising iterations, incremental iterations, and
programs consisting of large networks of operations.
- Approaches to achieving fault tolerance and to recovering from failures.

Algorithms for Large-Scale Data Processing:
- Methods and techniques for designing efficient algorithms for MapReduce
and similar systems.
- Experiments and experience with new algorithms in these settings.

Cost Models and Optimization Techniques:
- Formal definitions of models that evaluate the efficiency of algorithms
in large-scale parallel processing systems taking into account the
requirements of such systems in different applications.
- Testing and benchmarking of MapReduce extensions and data-intensive

Resource Management for Many-Task Computing:
- Scheduling of tasks and load-balancing techniques.
- Study of cases where automatic data distribution in MapReduce and
similar systems does not provide sufficient data balancing.
- Algorithms, methods and frameworks to address data skewness.

Papers submission deadline: Wed Jan 27, 2017
Authors notification: Sun March 5, 2017
Deadline for camera-ready copy: Sun March 19, 2017
Workshop: Fri May 19, 2017

We invite full research or experience papers (up to 10 pages), or short
papers (up to 4 pages) describing research in progress, formatted using
the ACM double-column style

The workshop proceedings will be published in ACM DL and the organizers
will prepare a SIGMOD Record report.
