Big data has emerged as a strategic property of nations and organizations. There are driving needs to generate values from big data. However, the sheer volume of big data requires significant storage capacity, transmission bandwidth, computations, and power consumption. It is expected that systems with unprecedented scales can resolve the problems caused by varieties of big data with daunting volumes. Nevertheless, it is very difficult for big data owners to make choice on which system is most suited for their specific requirements. They also face challenges on how to optimize the systems and their solutions. Meanwhile, system researchers are working on new hardware architecture, operating systems, programming systems, and data management systems to improve performance in dealing with big data.

This workshop, the fourth in its series, aims at bringing researchers and practitioners in related areas together to discuss the research issues at the intersection of these areas, and also to draw much attention from architecture, systems, programming, and data management research communities to this new and highly promising field.


The workshop seeks papers that address hot topic issues in benchmarking, designing and optimizing big data systems. Early stage work, new ideas, unconventional approaches are encouraged. Specific topics of interest include but are not limited to:
 Big data workload characterization and benchmarking
 Innovative computer and memory architecture for big data
 Emerging hardware technologies in big data systems
 Innovative operating systems and programming systems for big data
 Interactions among architecture, systems and data management
 Performance analysis and optimization of big data systems
 Innovative prototypes of big data infrastructures
 Practice report of evaluating and optimizing large-scale big data systems

Papers should present original research. As big data spans many disciplines, papers should provide sufficient background material to make them accessible to the broader community.


Papers must be submitted in PDF, and be no more than 6 pages in standard two-column SIGPLAN conference format including figures and tables but not including references. The submissions will be judged based on the merit of the ideas rather than the length. Submissions must be made through the on-line submission site. Final papers and presentations will be accessible from the workshop website, but to facilitate resubmission to more formal venues, no archival proceedings will be published, and papers will not be sent to the ACM Digital Library.
