IEEE Transaction on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC) seeks original manuscripts for a Special Issue/Section on Big 
Data Benchmarks, Performance Optimization, and Emerging Hardware Scheduled to appear in the Second issue of 2016. 
Big data are emerging 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, computation, 
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 a decision on which system is best for meeting with their specific requirements. They also face challenges on how to 
optimize the systems for specific or even comprehensive workloads. Meanwhile, researchers are also working on 
innovative data management systems, hardware architectures, and operating systems to improve performance in dealing 
with big data. This focus of this special issue will be on architecture and system support for big data systems. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 

• Big data workload characterization and benchmarking 
• 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
