Due to several requests, and because of the uncertainty concerning the time and place of SIGMOD 2017, the submission deadline for BeyondMR 2017 has been extended with 3 weeks to:

- Friday 17 February, 2017.

Below you find the updated CFP.

* Call for papers *

The 4th Workshop on Algorithms and Systems for MapReduce and Beyond, May 19, 2017.

Held in conjunction with SIGMOD 2017
(Location to be announced) May 14-19, 2017


Author: Ke Yi, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, China

Title: The relationships among coarse-grained parallel models


The third BeyondMR workshop aims to explore algorithms, computational
models, architectures, languages and interfaces for systems that need
large-scale parallelization and systems designed to support efficient
parallelization and fault tolerance. These include specialized programming
and data-management systems based on MapReduce and extensions, graph
processing systems, data-intensive workflow and dataflow systems.

We invite submissions on topics such as:

Frameworks for Large-Scale Analytical Processing:
- Models, architectures and languages for data processing pipelines,
  data-intensive workflows, networks of operations/MapReduce jobs, dataflows,
  and data-mashups. 
- Analysis of programs for workflow systems, e.g., Spark.
- Expressing and parallelising iterations, incremental iterations, and
  programs consisting of large networks of operations.
- Approaches to achieving fault tolerance and to recovering from failures.

Algorithms for Large-Scale Data Processing:
- Methods and techniques for designing efficient algorithms for MapReduce
  and similar systems.
- Experiments and experience with new algorithms in these settings.

Cost Models and Optimization Techniques:
- Formal definitions of models that evaluate the efficiency of algorithms
  in large-scale parallel processing systems taking into account the
  requirements of such systems in different applications.
- Testing and benchmarking of MapReduce extensions and data-intensive

Resource Management for Many-Task Computing:
- Scheduling of tasks and load-balancing techniques.
- Study of cases where automatic data distribution in MapReduce and
  similar systems does not provide sufficient data balancing.
- Algorithms, methods and frameworks to address data skewness.
