Call for papers

There has lately been a massive increase in demand for systems that can handle Big Data — data sets that are too large or complex to be processed by traditional methods. This demand is driving innovations in the design of systems to handle these enormous data sets.

This workshop is devoted to large-scale data processing problems not easily solved with tools currently available. We invite position papers (3-4 pages) focused on specific problems or on general models. Highly speculative work is welcome, but so are papers based on experience. Instead of limiting the scope by listing specific sub-topics, let us just say that if you think that your Big Data presents interesting systems challenges, then this workshop is for you.

We are very excited to announce that our keynote talk will by given by Rayid Ghani, Chief Scientist, Obama for America.
