Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Computing for Large Scale Machine
Learning and Big Data Analytics (ParLearning 2014)


May 23, 2014, PHOENIX (Arizona), USA

To be held in conjunction with IPDPS 2014 (http://www.ipdps.org)


This workshop is one of the major meetings for bringing together
researchers in High Performance Computing and Artificial Intelligence
(Machine Learning, Data Mining, BigData Analytics, etc.) to discuss
state-of-the-art algorithms, identify critical applications that benefit
from parallelization, prospect research areas that require most convergence
and assess the impact on broader technical landscape.

Data-driven computing needs no introduction today. However, the growth in
volume and heterogeneity in data seems to outpace the growth in computing
power. As soon as the data hits the processing infrastructure, determining
the value of information, finding its rightful place in a knowledge
representation and determining subsequent actions are of paramount
importance. To use this data deluge to our advantage, a convergence between
the field of Parallel and Distributed Computing and the interdisciplinary
science of Artificial Intelligence seems critical.

The primary motivation of the proposed workshop is to invite leading minds
from AI and Parallel & Distributed Computing communities for identifying
research areas that require most convergence and assess their impact on the
broader technical landscape.


Authors are invited to submit manuscripts of original unpublished research
that demonstrate a strong interplay between parallel/distributed computing
techniques and learning/inference applications, such as algorithm design
and libraries/framework development on multicore/ manycore architectures,
GPUs, clusters, supercomputers, cloud computing platforms that target
applications including but not limited to:

    Learning and inference using large scale Bayesian Networks
    Large scale inference algorithms using parallel TPIC models, clustering
and SVM etc.
    Parallel natural language processing (NLP).
    Semantic inference for disambiguation of content on web or social media
    Discovering and searching for patterns in audio or video content
    On-line analytics for streaming text and multimedia content
    Comparison of various HPC infrastructures for learning
    Large scale learning applications in search engine and social networks
    Distributed machine learning tools (e.g., Mahout and IBM parallel tool)
    Real-time solutions for learning algorithms on parallel platforms
