The term "Big Data" refers to the continuing massive expansion in the data
volume and diversity as well as the speed and complexity of data
processing. The use of big data underpins critical activities in all
sectors of our society. Achieving the full transformative potential of
big data in this increasingly digital world requires both new data
analysis algorithms and a new class of systems to handle the dramatic data
growth, the demand to integrate structured and unstructured data
analytics, and the increasing computing needs of massive-scale analytics.

We are pleased to request papers for presentation at the upcoming Second
Workshop on Architectures and Systems for Big Data (ASBD 2012) held in
conjunction with ISCA-39. The workshop will provide a forum to exchange
research ideas related to all critical aspects of emerging analytics
systems for big data, including architectural support, benchmarks and
metrics, data management software, operating systems, and emerging
challenges and opportunities. We hope to attract a group of inter-
disciplinary researchers from academia, industry and government research
labs. To encourage discussion between participants, the workshop will
include significant time for interactions between the presenters and the
audience. We also plan to have a keynote speaker and/or panel session.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Processor, memory, and system architectures for data analysis
* Benchmarks, metrics, and workload characterization
* Debugging and performance analysis tools for analytics and big data
* Accelerators for analytics and data-intensive computing
* Implications of data analytics to mobile and embedded systems
* Energy efficiency and energy-efficient designs for analytics
* Availability, fault tolerance and recovery issues
* Systems/networks for high concurrency or high bandwidth data streaming
* Data management and analytics for vast amounts of unstructured data
* Evaluation tools, methodologies and workload synthesis
* OS, distributed systems and system management support
* MapReduce and other processing paradigms for analytics

We encourage both industry and academic researchers to submit their research.
Preliminary results of interesting ideas and work-in-progress are welcome.
Submissions that are likely to generate vigorous discussion will be favored!
