This is the first workshop addressing the challenge of benchmarks, performance optimization, and emerging hardware of Big Data systems and applications, in conjunction with IEEE Big Data conference 2013. Big Data has emerged as a strategic property of nations and organizations. There are driving needs to generate values from Big Data. However, the sheer volume of big data requires significant storage capacity, transmission bandwidth, computations, and electrical energy. It is expected that systems with unprecedented scales can resolve the problems caused by varieties of big data with daunting volumes. Nevertheless, owners of Big Data can hardly make choice on which system is most suited for their specific requirements. They also face the challenge on how to optimize the system and their solutions to earn most profits from existing data collection. On the other hand, system researchers and developers are working on new hardware architecture, system models, data management and mining techniques to improve the performance in dealing with Big Data.
Characteristics of Big Data Systems bring unique challenges for system benchmarking, and optimizing, which lead to great opportunities for designing innovative Big Data infrastructure. The BPOE workshop aims at bringing researchers and practitioners in related areas together to discuss the research issues at the intersection of these areas, and also to draw much attention from the general architecture, systems, data management and mining research communities to this new and highly promising field.
This workshop welcomes research and industry papers that address fundamental research issues in benchmarking, characterizing, designing and optimizing Big Data systems based on novel hardware and software applications.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
San Francisco, California, USA
All conference activities will take place in the Santa Clara, which is conveniently located near 2 International Airports - NormanY.MinetaSanJosé International Airport;IATA:SJC;ICAO:KSJC, San Francisco International Airport IATA:SFO ICAO:KSFO.
