International Workshop on High-Performance Big Data Computing (HPBDC)

In conjunction with the 35th IEEE
International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS 2015)

June 29th, 2015, Columbus, Ohio, USA



Managing and processing large volumes of data, or `Big Data', and
gaining meaningful insights is a significant challenge facing the
distributed computing community. This has significant impact in a wide
range of domains including health care, bio-medical research, Internet
search, finance and business informatics, and scientific computing. As
data-gathering technologies and data-sources witness an explosion in
the amount of input data, it is expected that in the future massive
quantities of data in the order of hundreds or thousands of petabytes
will need to be processed. Thus, it is critical that data-intensive
computing middleware (such as Hadoop, HBase and Spark) to process such
data are diligently designed, with high performance and scalability,
in order to meet the growing demands of such Big Data applications.

The explosive growth of Big Data has caused many industrial firms to
adopt High Performance Computing (HPC) technologies to meet the
requirements of huge amount of data to be processed and stored. Modern
HPC systems and the associated middleware (such as MPI and Parallel
File systems) have been exploiting the advances in HPC technologies
(multi/many-core architectures, RDMA-enabled networking, NVRAMs and
SSDs) during the last decade. However, Big Data middleware (such as
Hadoop, HBase and Spark) have not embraced such technologies. These
disparities are taking HPC and Big Data processing into `divergent

The first International Workshop on High-Performance Big Data
Computing (HPBDC), aims to bring HPC and Big Data processing into a
`convergent trajectory'. The workshop provides a forum for scientists
and engineers in academia and industry to present their latest
research findings in major and emerging topics for this field.

HPBDC 2015 will be held in conjunction with the 35th International
Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS 2015), Columbus,
Ohio, USA, June 29th, 2015.

HPBDC 2015 welcomes original submissions in a range of areas,
including but not limited to:

* High-performance Big Data analytics frameworks, programming models,
and tools

* Performance optimizations for Big Data systems and applications with
HPC technologies

* High-performance in-memory computing technologies and abstractions

* Performance modeling and evaluation for emerging Big Data Computing

* Big Data on HPC, Cloud, and Grid computing infrastructures

* Fault tolerance, reliability and availability for high-performance
Big Data Computing

* Green Big Data Computing

* Scientific Computing with Big Data

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.


* Dr. Dan Stanzione, Executive Director of the Texas Advanced
Computing Center (TACC) at the University of Texas at Austin
- Title: TBD

* Prof. Zhiwei Xu, CTO of Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese
Academy of Sciences (ICT, CAS), China
- Title: Efficiency + Scalability = High-Performance Data Computing


All submissions should follow the IEEE standard 8.5x11 two-column
format. Paper submissions should not exceed 8 pages. All the papers
should be submitted through

All papers will be carefully reviewed by at least three reviewers.
Papers should not be submitted in parallel to any other conference or

The proceedings of this workshop will be published together with the
proceedings of other ICDCS 2015 workshops by the IEEE Computer Society
Press. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must
register as a participant of the workshop and present the paper at the
workshop, in order to have the paper published in the proceedings.
