Call For Papers

3rd Workshop on Algorithms and Systems for MapReduce and Beyond, July 1, 2016.

Held in conjunction with SIGMOD 2016
San Francisco, USA, June 26th - July 1st, 2016


The third BeyondMR workshop aims to explore algorithms, computational models, architectures, languages and interfaces for systems that need large-scale parallelization and systems designed to support efficient parallelization and fault tolerance. These include specialized programming and data-management systems based on MapReduce and extensions, graph processing systems, data-intensive workflow and dataflow systems.

We invite submissions on topics such as

Frameworks for Large-Scale Analytical Processing:
- Models, architectures and languages for data processing pipelines, data-intensive workflows, DAGs of operations/MapReduce jobs, dataflows, and data-mashups.
- Extensions of MapReduce with more fundamental functions other than Map and Reduce and more complex dataflow connections between function inputs and outputs.
- Expressing and parallelising iterations, incremental iterations, and programs consisting of large DAGs of operations.
- Approaches to achieving fault tolerance and to recovering from failures.

Algorithms for Large-Scale Data Processing:
- Methods and techniques for designing efficient algorithms for MapReduce and similar systems.
- Experiments and experience with new algorithms in these settings.

Cost Models and Optimization Techniques:
- Formal definitions of models that evaluate the efficiency of algorithms in large-scale parallel processing systems taking into account the requirements of such systems in different applications.
- Testing and benchmarking of MapReduce extensions and data-intensive workflows.

Resource Management for Many-Task Computing:
- Scheduling of tasks and load-balancing techniques.
- Methods to tackle data skewness.
- Study of cases where automatic data distribution in MapReduce and similar systems does not provide sufficient data balancing.
- Design of algorithms that avoid skewness.
- Extensions of MapReduce that automatically tackle data skewness.

Papers submission deadline: Sun March 5, 2016
Authors notification: Sun April 11, 2016
Deadline for camera-ready copy: Sun May 1, 2016
Workshop: Fri July 1, 2016

We invite full research or experience papers (up to 10 pages), or short papers (up to 4 pages) describing research in progress, formatted using the ACM double-column style (

The workshop proceedings will be published in ACM DL and the organizers will prepare a SIGMOD Record report.
