Call for Papers

Scaling up machine-learning (ML), data mining (DM) and reasoning algorithms from Artificial Intelligence (AI) for massive datasets is a major technical challenge in the times of "Big Data". The past ten years has seen the rise of multi-core and GPU based computing. In parallel and distributed computing, several frameworks such as OpenMP, OpenCL, and Spark continue to appear to facilitate scaling up ML/DM/AI algorithms using higher levels of abstraction. We invite novel works that advance the trio-fields of ML/DM/AI through development of scalable algorithms or computing frameworks. Ideal submissions would be characterized as scaling up X on Y, where potential choices for X and Y are provided below.

Scaling up

recommender systems
gradient descent algorithms
deep learning
sampling/sketching techniques
clustering (agglomerative techniques, graph clustering, clustering heterogeneous data)
classification (SVM and other classifiers)
SVD
probabilistic inference (bayesian networks)
logical reasoning
graph algorithms and graph mining

On

Multi-core architectures/frameworks (OpenMP)
Many-core (GPU) architectures/frameworks (OpenCL, OpenACC, CUDA, Intel TBB)
Distributed systems/frameworks (GraphLab, MPI, Hadoop, Spark, Storm, Mahout etc.)

Proceedings of the ParLearning workshop will be distributed at the conference and will be submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library after the conference.

Journal publication

Selected papers from the workshop will be published in a Special Issue of Future Generation Computer Systems, Elsevier's International Journal of eScience. Special Issue papers will undergo additional review.

Awards
Best Paper Award: The program committee will nominate a paper for the Best Paper award. In past years, the Best Paper award included a cash prize. Stay tuned for this year!

Travel awards:Students with accepted papers have a chance to apply for a travel award. Please find details on the IEEE IPDPS web page.
