HiPC BigDF 2016




What constitutes a “Big Data” problem? What application domains are best suited to benefit from Big Data analytics and computing? What are the traits and characteristics of an application that make it suited to exploit Big Data analytics? How can Big Data systems and frameworks be designed to allow the integration and analysis of complex data sets? How can research in Big Data Analytics benefit from the latest advances in supercomputing and High Performance Computing (HPC) architectures? The goal of this workshop is to address questions like these that are fundamental to the advancement of Big Data computing, and in the process, build a diverse research community that has a shared vision to advance the state of knowledge and discovery through Big Data computing.


Topics of interest include research contributions and innovative methods in the following areas (but not limited to):


  • Scalable tools, techniques and technologies for Big Data analytics (e.g., graph and stream data analysis, machine learning and emerging deep learning methods)

  •  Algorithms and Programming Models for Big Data

  •  Big Data applications – Challenges and Solutions (e.g., life sciences, health informatics, geoinformatics, climate, socio-cultural dynamics, business analytics, cybersecurity)

  •  Scalable Big Data systems, platforms, services, and management

  •  Big Data toolkits, workflows, metrics,  and provenance.

We invite paper submissions that describe original research contributions in the area of Big Data computing, and position papers that highlight the potential challenges and opportunities that arise in Big Data computing. We also invite short papers that describe work-in-progress original research. 


Regular papers can be up to 8 pages long and short papers can be up to 4 pages long. All submissions will undergo rigorous peer-review by the technical program committee, and accepted manuscripts will appear in the HiPC workshop (“HIPCW”) proceedings and will be indexed by IEEE digital library. Authors of the accepted manuscripts will be required to present their work at the workshop proceedings.


Paper Submission link: The paper submission opens July 1, 2017. Click on the following link for submitting your papers:


Authors can submit an abstract prior to submitting the full paper for review. The abstract is not mandatory but is recommended to help organizers plan the review phase in a timely fashion (i.e., authors can submit a full paper without having submitted an abstract). However, submissions with only full papers will be reviewed.
