Submitted by Boris Grot

Fifth Workshop on Architectures and Systems for Big Data (ASBD 2015)
Held in conjunction with ISCA 2015
Portland, Oregon, USA
June 13, 2015
Submissions deadline: April 10, 2015
Author notification: April 31, 2015

The workshop will provide a forum to exchange research ideas related to all
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 a 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
– 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

Preliminary results of interesting ideas and works-in-progress are welcome.
Submissions that are likely to generate vigorous discussion will be favored!

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.
