Call For Papers

Open Journal for Big Data (OJBD)

*** Call for Papers: Special Issue on System Software Support for Big Data ***

Big Data is one of the most important challenges for computer science
research in the upcoming decade, influencing all levels of the hardware/
software stack. However, most current Big Data research efforts concentrate
on algorithms for analyzing and processing Big Data. The system software
and infrastructure implications of Big Data processing are so far

Problems on the system-software level include inadequate resource
management methods and complex and performance-limiting unpredictable
hardware/software interactions. Recent years have already brought up
a number of innovative solutions, such as in-memory databases,
distributed filesystems, and parallel data processing frameworks.

The goal of this special issue is to showcase the state of the art
in this young, but very important area. We are soliciting papers in
all areas of system software support for Big Data. Areas of interest
include, but are not limited to:

Dealing with High-Performance Architectures for Big Data
- Multi/manycore architectures
- Integration of FPGAs and GPGPUs
- Memory and storage hierarchies
- High-performance I/O
Boosting data processing performance
- In-memory databases
- Big data analysis in realtime
- Massively distributed data processing
- Special-purpose system software
System software design challenges
- Scalability and exascale problems
- Virtualization and microkernel technologies
- Storage management for Big Data
- Memory management for Big Data
Architecting systems for Big Data
- Bottleneck analyses
- Resource modeling for Big Data
- System support for stream processing
- Energy and power-efficient Big Data processing
- Integrating diverse data sources (sensor or smartphone networks)

The Open Journal for Big Data (OJBD) is an Open Access online journal.
Information about the OJBD, including formatting instruction, can be
found at
For papers submitted in 2014, publication fees are waived.

Please submit your manuscript electronically at and indicate "Special
Issue: BigSys" on the cover page of your paper. Manuscripts must
conform to the formatting instructions on the journal web site and
be submitted in PDF format. Papers can be submitted as short (up to
4,000 words/9 pages) or long (up to 10,000 words/25 pages) papers.

Expanded versions of previously published conference research papers
are welcome as long as they contain at least 30% new material; authors
should clearly state in a footnote on the first page how the manuscript
differs from the conference paper. Papers simultaneously submitted
elsewhere will be returned without review.
