The continuous growth of our society has lead to complex systems of
behavior and also to the need to optimize certain aspects of our day
to day activities. Time sensitive applications such as real time power
management for smart grids, traffic control or network monitoring
require on demand large scale information processing and real time
responses. The data these applications gather on a regular basis from
monitoring sensors exceeds the normal storage and capacity power of
normal machines or even clusters. In addition, the complexities
arising from handling large relational datasets include but are not
limited to data heterogeneity (i.e. variability), data quality
(missing/approximate), data temporality (i.e. high-velocity), data
volume or data streaming. Traditional computing platforms and even
storage/processing models cannot simultaneously address these
Advances in the state of art in scalable computing platforms such as
clouds, offer an ideal environment for showcasing and advancing
methods for modeling, management, mining and analysis of real-time big
data. At the same time novel models that take into account all these
complexities need to be designed on top of these scalable systems.

Following the success of the previous 2 editions held in Chicago
(2014) and Shenzhen (2015), this workshop aims at providing 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 real-time big data applications.
SCRAMBL'16 is co-located with Europar 2016
(https://europar2016.inria.fr/) which in 2016 will take place in
Grenoble France between August 22-26. Workshops will be held on August

We intend to have one invited speaker discussing one of the hot topics
in scalable computing for real-time big data applications.

Highly rated papers will be considered for publication in a special
issue in a Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience.


Topics of interests include but are not limited to novel techniques
for addressing modeling, storage, processing, mining and analysis
real-time big data in secure scalable computing environments:

* Scalable Models
-Data representation and data structures
-Dynamic/temporal data
-Heterogeneous data
-Linked Data
-Semantic integration
-Complex event processing
-Messaging and data flow

* Scalable Algorithms & Architectures
-Data extraction, cleaning, processing
-Machine learning
-Scalable architectures: Grids, Clouds, HPC, Clusters
-Programming paradigms (e.g. MapReduce)

the list will be updated as new members join:

* Charalampos Chelmis, University of Southern California, USA
* Marc Frincu, West University of Timisoara, Romania
* Bogdan Nicolae, IBM Research, Ireland

Paper submission deadline: May 6, 2016
Acceptance/rejection notification: June 17, 2016


SCRAMBL'16 is a half day workshop conducted in a highly interactive
manner. We envisage two presentations sessions followed by a general
discussion. In addition to regular research papers, we accept
real-world use cases and position papers to stimulate discussions
including practitioners. Further, we will accept outrageous ideas
statements, which may highlight controversial topics or visionary
ideas, to further foster discussions.

Particularly, we welcome submissions in the form of:
* Outrageous ideas (2 page papers presented as posters during the workshop)
* Position papers (6 page short papers presented as posters during the workshop)
* Real-world use cases papers (6 page short papers available for oral
presentation during the workshop)
* Research papers (10 page full papers)

IMPORTANT: Quality commitment with Springer implies that only long
papers (10-12 pages), which have been positively reviewed by at least
referees before being presented at the workshop, may be included in
the workshop proceedings.

Authors are invited to submit papers formatted according to LNCS
formatting guidelines
(ftp://ftp.springer.de/pub/tex/latex/llncs/latex2e/llncs2e.zip) and
submitted to via Easychair at
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=europar2016ws. Note that there
is one submission website for all workshops. For SCRAMBL select the
"Workshop on Scalable Computing For Real-Time Big Data Applications"

Submitted papers should not exceed 10 pages including figures, tables
and references using the LNCS format (link above). Submissions not
conforming to these guidelines or received after the due date will be
returned without review. Authors of accepted papers will have the
opportunity to purchase additional pages, subject to approval of the
Europar 2016 Proceedings chair. Submitted papers must represent
original and unpublished work, that is not currently under review. All
manuscripts will be evaluated by at least 3 reviewers according to
their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity,
quality of presentation, and relevance to the workshop. At least one
author of each accepted paper is expected to attend the workshop.

NEW: Special issue in Concurrency and Computation: Practice and
Experience (IF: 0.997)

We invite authors of accepted papers to submit extended versions to a
special issue on "Scalable Computing for Fast Big Data Applications on
Hybrid Platforms" in the journal of Concurrency and Computation:
Practice and Experience published by Willey.

The CFP for the SI can be found at

Deadline for papers is October 2, 2016 with publication expected
around mid 2017.

The CFP is OPEN for all papers.
