[DMANET] BigDF 2017: IEEE International Workshop on Foundations of Big Data Computing


IEEE International Workshop on Foundations of Big Data Computing (BigDF 2017)
In conjunction with HiPC 2017 (http://www.hipc.org)
December 18, 2017
Le Meridien, Jaipur, India


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 Performance Computing (HPC)
architectures? The goal of this workshop is to address questions 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
(e.g., graph and stream data analysis, machine learning and emerging
deep learning methods)
* Algorithms and Programming Models for Big Data
* Big Data applications - Challenges and Solutions (e.g., life
sciences, health informatics, geoinformatics, climate, socio-cultural
dynamics, business analytics, cybersecurity)
* 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 research.

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 HiPC workshop ("HIPCW") 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.

Paper Submission link: The paper submission opens July 1, 2017. Click
on the following link for submitting your papers:

Authors can submit an abstract prior to submitting the full paper for
review. The abstract is not mandatory but is recommended to help
organizers plan the review phase in a timely fashion (i.e., authors
can submit a full paper without having submitted an abstract).
However, submissions with only full papers will be reviewed.
