Computing in large-scale systems is shifting away from the traditional
compute-centric model to a much more data-centric one. This transition is
driven by the evolving nature of what computing comprises, no longer
dominated by the execution of arithmetic and logic calculations but instead
dominated by large data volume and the cost of moving data to the locations
where computations are performed. Data movement impacts performance,
energy-efficiency and reliability. These trends are leading to changes in
the computing paradigm driven by the notion of moving computation to the
data in a so-called Near-Data Processing approach, which seeks to perform
computations in the most appropriate location based on where data resides
and what needs to be done with it.


This workshop is intended to bring together experts from academia and
industry to share advances in the development of Near-Data Processing
systems principles, with emphasis on large-scale systems. Topics of interest
include but are not limited to:

- Analysis of applications illustrating the potential for Near-Data

- System and software architectures for Near-Data Processing

- Programming models for distributed and heterogeneous infrastructures
driven by location of the data

- Processing/Memory/Storage architectures and microarchitectures for
Near-Data Processing

- Performance evaluation of Near-Data Processing systems and subsystems

- Energy-efficiency and reliability analysis and evaluation of Near-Data


Two kinds of papers are invited:

- Technical papers (4-6 pages) with preliminary results.

- Position papers (3 pages maximum) on directions for research and
