Call for papers:

Modern Big Data increasingly appears in the form of complex graphs and networks.
Examples include the physical Internet, the world wide web, online social networks,
phone networks, and biological networks. In addition to their massive sizes, these
graphs are dynamic, noisy, and sometimes transient. They also conform to all five Vs
(Volume, Velocity, Variety, Value and Veracity) that define Big Data. However, many
graph-related problems are computationally difficult, and thus big graph data brings
unique challenges, as well as numerous opportunities for researchers, to solve various
problems that are significant to our communities. This workshop aims to bring together
researchers from different paradigms solving big graph problems under a unified
platform for sharing their work and exchanging ideas. We are soliciting novel and
original research contributions related to big graph data management, analysis, and
mining (algorithms, software systems, applications, best practices, performance).
Significant work-in-progress papers are also encouraged. Papers can be from any of
the following areas, including but not limited to:

* Parallel algorithms for big graph analysis on HPC systems
* Heterogeneous CPU-GPU solutions to solve big graph problems
* Extreme-scale computing for large graph, tensor, and network problems
* Sampling and summarization of large graphs
* Graph algorithms for large-scale scientific computing problems
* Graph clustering, partitioning, and classification methods
* Scalable graph topology measurement: diameter approximation, eigenvalues,
triangle and graphlet counting
* Parallel algorithms for computing graph kernels
* Inference on large graph data
* Graph evolution and dynamic graph models
* Graph streams
* Graph databases, novel querying and indexing strategies for RDF data
* Novel applications of big graph problems in bioinformatics, health care,
security, and social networks
* New software systems and runtime systems for big graph data mining

Submissions must be at most 8 pages long, including all figures, tables, and references.
They must be formatted according to the style files used by the IEEE BigData 2016
conference proceedings. Papers must be submitted online through the workshop submissions
page (
by 11.59 pm PDT (Pacific Daylight Time) on October 20, 2016.
