Co-located with VLDB 2015 
September 4th, 2015, Hawai'i, 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 sixth 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.  We will accept 12-page papers in Springer LNCS style: 
The submissions will be judged based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. 
The workshop proceeding will be published by Springer LNCS (pending).

Submission site:  https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bpoe6

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

Abstract due  June 1,2015
Papers due  June 7,2015
Notification of acceptance  July  1,2015
Camera-ready  copies  July  30,2015
Workshop session September 4,2015
