June 28, 2013 - Lightning Talk abstracts
SCOPE

Extremely large, diverse, and complex data sets are generated from
scientific applications, the Internet, social media and other applications.
Data may be physically distributed and shared by an ever larger community.
Collecting, aggregating, storing and analyzing large data volumes
presents major challenges. Processing such amounts of data efficiently
has been an issue to scientific discovery and technological
advancement. In addition, making the data accessible, understandable and
interoperable includes unsolved problems. Novel middleware architectures,
algorithms, and application development frameworks are required.

In this workshop we are particularly interested in original work at the
intersection of HPC and Big Data with regard to middleware handling
and optimizations. Scope is existing and proposed middleware for HPC
and big data, including analytics libraries and frameworks.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together software architects,
middleware and framework developers, data-intensive application developers
as well as users from the scientific and engineering community to exchange
their experience in processing large datasets and to report their scientific
achievement and innovative ideas. The workshop also offers a dedicated forum
for these researchers to access the state of the art, to discuss problems
and requirements, to identify gaps in current and planned designs, and to
collaborate in strategies for scalable data-intensive computing.

The workshop will be one day in length, composed of 20 min paper
presentations, each followed by 10 min discussion sections.
Presentations may be accompanied by interactive demonstrations.
TOPICS

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Middleware including: Hadoop, Apache Drill, YARN, Spark/Shark, Hive, Pig,
Sqoop,
HBase, HDFS, S4, CIEL, Oozie, Impala, Storm and Hyrack
- Data intensive middleware architecture
- Libraries/Frameworks including: Apache Mahout, Giraph, UIMA and GraphLab
- NG Databases including Apache Cassandra, MongoDB and CouchDB/Couchbase
- Schedulers including Cascading
- Middleware for optimized data locality/in-place data processing
- Data handling middleware for deployment in virtualized HPC environments
- Parallelization and distributed processing architectures at the
middleware level
- Integration with cloud middleware and application servers
- Runtime environments and system level support for data-intensive computing
- Skeletons and patterns
- Checkpointing
- Programming models and languages
- Big Data ETL
- Stream processing middleware
- In-memory databases for HPC
- Scalability and interoperability
- Large-scale data storage and distributed file systems
- Content-centric addressing and networking
- Execution engines, languages and environments including CIEL/Skywriting
- Performance analysis, evaluation of data-intensive middleware
- In-depth analysis and performance optimizations in existing data-handling
middleware, focusing on indexing/fast storing or retrieval between compute
and storage nodes
- Highly scalable middleware optimized for minimum communication
- Use cases and experience for popular Big Data middleware
- Middleware security, privacy and trust architectures

The best papers of the workshop will be published in a Special Issue
of the Springer Journal of Scalable Computing (to be confirmed).
PAPER SUBMISSION

Papers submitted to the workshop will be reviewed by at least two
members of the program committee and external reviewers. Submissions
should include abstract, key words, the e-mail address of the
corresponding author, and must not exceed 10 pages, including tables
and figures at a main font size no smaller than 11 point. Submission
of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper
be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the
conference to present the work.

The format must be according to the Springer LNCS Style. Initial
submissions are in PDF; authors of accepted papers will be requested
to provide s
