BPOE-7 Call for Papers
The Seventh workshop on Big Data Benchmarks, Performance Optimization, and Emerging Hardware

Co-located with ASPLOS 2016
April 3rd, 2016, Atlanta, Georiga, USA

* Introduction
Big data has emerged 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, computations, 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 choice on which system is best for meeting 
with their specific requirements. They also face challenges on how to optimize the systems and their solutions for specific or even 
comprehensive workloads. Meanwhile, researchers are also working on innovative data management systems, hardware architectures, operating 
systems, and programming systems to improve performance in dealing with big data.
This workshop, the seventh its series, focuses on architecture and system support for big data systems, aiming at bringing researchers and 
practitioners from data management, architecture, and systems research communities together to discuss the research issues at the intersection 
of these areas.

* Call for papers
The workshop seeks papers that address hot topic issues in benchmarking, designing and optimizing big data systems. Specific topics of interest 
include but are not limited to:
** Big data workload characterization and benchmarking
** Performance analysis of big data systems
** 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

Papers should present original research. As big data spans many disciplines, papers should provide sufficient background material to make them 
accessible to the broader community.
* Paper Submissions
Papers must be submitted in PDF, and be no more than 8 pages in standard two-column SIGPLAN conference format including figures and tables but not including references. Shorter submissions are encouraged. The submissions
will be judged based on the merit of the ideas rather than the length. Submissions must be made through the online submission site. The expanded 
version will be published by Springer LNCS (pending).

Submission site: http://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bpoe7

Best paper award will be announced at the end of the workshop!

Papers due February 3rd, 2016.
Notification of acceptance February 23, 2016
