Call for papers:

International Workshop on Hardware Accelerated Data Mining (HADM'15) to be held with IEEE International Conference on Data Mining
14 November 2015, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA.
Website: http://www.usc.edu/hadm

Data mining is expected to work on increasingly complex workloads (e.g., Petabytes of networked-data under real-time constraints) using emerging hardware accelerators (e.g., commodity and specialized Multi-core, GPUs, FPGAs, and ASICs) and corresponding programming models (e.g., MapReduce, GraphLab, CUDA, OpenCL, and OpenACC). The use of hardware accelerators for mining high-rate data streams is becoming common mainly due to the rapidly increasing amount of data available for real-time analytics. The idea of using special-purpose hardware to accelerate computation has a long tradition in data processing but has thus far not made its way into mainstream data mining. Many essential issues in this area have yet to be explored. For instance, large-scale graph computations are commonplace in many fields. However, this graph data is sparse and highly non-uniform. Graph structure mining algorithms exhibit weak spatial locality when processing graphs with power law distributions and such algorithms are data-intensive and cache-hostile.

The aim of this workshop is to provide a venue for designers, practitioners, researchers, developers, and industrial/governmental partners to come together, present and discuss leading research results, use cases, innovative ideas, challenges, and opportunities that arise from accelerating mining of big data using new hardware, and identify future directions and challenges in this area.
