3rd International Workshop on Scalable Computing For Real-Time Big Data
Applications (SCRAMBL'16)
held in conjunction with Europar in Grenoble, France, August 22-26, 2016

Submission website: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=europar2016ws
For SCRAMBL select the "Workshop on Scalable Computing For Real-Time Big
Data Applications" track

Workshop website: Available before March 4, 2016

Full papers due: May 6, 2016


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 efficiently.
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 22-23.

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 top tier international journal. Updates on the journal and the
submission deadlines will be posted on the conference website.


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

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

-Big Data visualization and interactive mining

* Security & Privacy Aspects
-Trust and risk in Big Data
-Security in scalable architectures
-Access control to computing resources and data

* Energy Efficiency

-Energy aware data storage and real-time computation

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
* 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 3
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" track.

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.
