Call For Papers

* Call for papers *

The 5th Workshop on Algorithms and Systems for MapReduce and Beyond, Jun 15, 2018.

Held in conjunction with SIGMOD 2018
Houston, TX, USA, Jun 10-15, 2018


The 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 submission on topics such as:

* Cost models: Formal models that evaluate the efficiency of algorithms in large-scale parallel systems taking into account the different architectural properties and parameters of such systems.

* Task Scheduling, Load-Balancing and Fault Tolerance: Methods and algorithms that avoid data and computational skew in large-scale parallel systems. Design of scheduling algorithms for balanced task distribution. Techniques for supporting fault-tolerance.

* Algorithms and Applications: Algorithmic design for specific data processing tasks in large-scale parallel systems. These include query processing and graph processing tasks, iterative and recursive computational tasks, machine learning and general data analytics. Applications built using large-scale parallel systems.

* New Parallel Architectures: Novel large-scale parallel architectures and systems that support various types of data processing tasks, such as graph processing, log processing, data analytics and machine learning. Extensions of current systems to provide additional functionality, improve performance, and support processing of more complex tasks.
