                     CALL FOR PAPERS
            The 4th International Workshop on
          Parallel and Distributed Computing for
      Large Scale Machine Learning and Big Data Analytics
                      May 29, 2015
                     Hyderabad, India
               In Conjunction with IPDPS 2015

Scaling up machine-learning (ML), data mining (DM) and reasoning
algorithms from Artificial Intelligence (AI) for massive datasets
is a major technical challenge in the times of "Big Data". The
past ten years has seen the rise of multi-core and GPU based computing.
In distributed computing, several frameworks such as Mahout, GraphLab
and Spark continue to appear to facilitate scaling up ML/DM/AI
algorithms using higher levels of abstraction. We invite novel works
that advance the trio-fields of ML/DM/AI through development of
scalable algorithms or computing frameworks. Ideal submissions would
be characterized as scaling up X on Y, where potential choices for
X and Y are provided below.

Scaling up
---- recommender systems
---- gradient descent algorithms
---- deep learning
---- sampling/sketching techniques
---- clustering (agglomerative techniques, graph clustering,
    clustering heterogeneous data)
---- classification (SVM and other classifiers)
---- SVD
---- probabilistic inference (bayesian networks)
---- logical reasoning
---- graph algorithms and graph mining

---- Parallel architectures/frameworks (OpenMP, OpenCL, Intel TBB)
---- Distributed systems/frameworks (GraphLab, Hadoop, MPI, Spark etc.)
