We are pleased to request papers for presentation at the upcoming seventh Workshop on Architectures and Systems for Big Data (ASBD 2017) held in conjunction with ISCA-44. The workshop will provide a forum to exchange research ideas related to all critical aspects of emerging analytics systems for big data, including architectural support, benchmarks and metrics, data management software, operating systems, and emerging challenges and opportunities. We hope to attract a group of interdisciplinary researchers from academia, industry and government research labs. To encourage discussion between participants, the workshop will include significant time for interactions between the presenters and the audience. We also plan to have a keynote speaker and/or panel session.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
– Processor, memory and system architectures for data analytics
– Benchmarks, metrics and workload characterization for big data
– Accelerators for analytics and data-intensive computing
– Heterogeneous computing and heterogeneous system architecture
– Implications of data analytics to mobile and embedded systems
– Energy efficiency and energy-efficient designs for analytics
– Availability, fault tolerance and data recovery in big data environments
– Scalable system and network designs for high concurrency/bandwidth streaming
– Data management and analytics for vast amounts of unstructured data
– Evaluation tools, methodologies and workload synthesis
– OS, distributed systems and system management support for large-scale analytics
– Debugging and performance analysis tools for analytics and big data
– Programming systems and language support for deep analytics
– MapReduce and other processing paradigms for analytics

All papers should be submitted in PDF format, using 10 point or larger font for text (8 points or larger for figures and tables), total length not to exceed 6 pages.
