CALL FOR PAPERS
EuroMPI/ASIA Workshop: Challenges in Data-Centric Computing
(BigDataComputing'2014)
Kyoto, Japan, 9 - 12 September 2014
http://www.eurompi2014.org/workshop/index.html

You are invited to submit research publications.


ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
--------------------------
This workshop is a 1-day event organized as a part of the EuroMPI/ASIA
conference. It aims at bringing together researchers from the domains
related to data-centric computing to discuss challenges and possible
solutions for data-centric application development in high-performance
computing environments. The workshop is organized by the High
Performance Center Stuttgart (HLRS) in cooperation with the Steinbuch
Centre for Computing, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. It is further
supported by the EC FP7 projects JUNIPER and DreamCloud as well as the
German DFG project HA.


SCOPE AND GOALS
------------------------
Many academic and industrial domains have been concerned by numerous
research and innovation activities which target the "big data" problem.
Whereas the term “big data” itself is quite controversial and one
may argue that this sort of problems has been known for several decades
already, it has allowed the supercomputing community to revisit the
major application areas of the modern HPC’s. Data-centric applications
have started to gain the deserved level of attention in the HPC
community as well.

Among the major problems, the lack of supports from the side of the
existing parallelisation technologies, in particular for MPI, has
prevented the usage of large-scale computing infrastructures in the
typical data-centric application domains, such as Semantic Web,
Information Retrieval, Knowledge Engineering, etc. However, quite a few
activities have been done around the support of data-centric solutions
in MPI. Prominent examples of the newly-emerged tools are Java bindings
for MPI, Open MPI's Hadoop integration framework MR+, etc.

The goal of the workshop is to foster the discussion around the
challenges in data-centric computing and envisioned solutions for
them. Following this goal, the workshop will serve as a forum to present
research activities related high-performance computing community
in emerging data-centric application scenarios. The workshop addresses
the current and future challenges related to the development of
data-centric applications (in particular, by means of MPI
as well as related technologies, such as MapReduce/Hadoop).


MAIN TOPICS
-----------------

* Applications

Presentation of "big-data" application use-cases which are challenging
in terms of computation as well as communication demands and storage
requirements.

* Parallelisation Techniques

Discussion on data-centric parallelisation approaches (MPI, MapReduce,
and others) and their application to the data-centric application
domain.

* Tools

Introduction of tools for supporting the development, debugging,
optimization, or deployment and execution of data analytic applications
on HPC infrastructures.

* Supporting activities

Presentation of any other interesting research activities that target
the big data application domain but do not specifically fall into any of
the previous categories.
