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 power consumption. It is expected that systems with unprecedented scales can resolve the problems caused by varieties of big data with daunting volumes. Nevertheless, without big data benchmarks, it is very difficult for big data owners to make choice on which system is best for meeting with their specific requirements. They also face challenges on how to optimize the systems and their solutions for specific or even comprehensive workloads. Meanwhile, researchers are also working on innovative data management systems, hardware architectures, operating systems, and programming systems to improve performance in dealing with big data.

This workshop, the fifth its series, focuses on architecture and system support for big data systems, aiming at bringing researchers and practitioners from data management, architecture, and systems research communities together to discuss the research issues at the intersection of these areas.

Workshop date: September 5, 2014

Call for papers


The workshop seeks papers that address hot topic issues in benchmarking, designing and optimizing big data systems. Specific topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Big data workload characterization and benchmarking
  • Performance analysis of big data systems
  • Workload-optimized big data systems
  • Innovative prototypes of big data infrastructures
  • Emerging hardware technologies in big data systems
  • Operating systems support for big data systems
  • Interactions among architecture, systems and data management
  • Hardware and software co-design for big data
  • Practice report of evaluating and optimizing large-scale big data systems

Papers should present original research. As big data spans many disciplines, papers should provide sufficient background material to make them accessible to the broader community.


Paper Submissions

Papers must be submitted in PDF. We will accept 12-page papers in Springer LNCS style: The submissions will be judged based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. The workshop proceeding will be published by Springer LNCS (indexed by EI). About 3 best papers will be recommended for IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC) Special issue on Big Data Benchmarks, Performance Optimization, and Emerging Hardware.

Best paper award will be announced at the end of the workshop!

The conference organizers will designate ONE paper accepted to the conference as the BPOE Best Paper. Every accepted paper is automatically eligible for this award.

The winner of this award will receive a certificate with the name of the award, to be awarded at the BPOE Workshop that year.

The main criterion for selecting the best paper is as follows: solving a ground-breaking research problem; proposing a novel technique with strong theoretical or empirical results; introducing an interesting and important new problem, and etc.
