2013 Workshop on

Middleware for HPC and Big Data Systems

MHPC '13

as part of Euro-Par 2013, Aachen, Germany


Date: August 27, 2012

Workshop URL: http://m-hpc.org

Springer LNCS


June 10, 2013 - LNCS Full paper submission (extended)

June 28, 2013 - Lightning Talk abstracts


Extremely large, diverse, and complex data sets are generated from

scientific applications, the Internet, social media and other applications.

Data may be physically distributed and shared by an ever larger community.

Collecting, aggregating, storing and analyzing large data volumes

presents major challenges. Processing such amounts of data efficiently

has been an issue to scientific discovery and technological

advancement. In addition, making the data accessible, understandable and

interoperable includes unsolved problems. Novel middleware architectures,

algorithms, and application development frameworks are required.

In this workshop we are particularly interested in original work at the

intersection of HPC and Big Data with regard to middleware handling

and optimizations. Scope is existing and proposed middleware for HPC

and big data, including analytics libraries and frameworks.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together software architects,

middleware and framework developers, data-intensive application developers

as well as users from the scientific and engineering community to exchange

their experience in processing large datasets and to report their scientific

achievement and innovative ideas. The workshop also offers a dedicated forum

for these researchers to access the state of the art, to discuss problems

and requirements, to identify gaps in current and planned designs, and to

collaborate in strategies for scalable data-intensive computing.

The workshop will be one day in length, composed of 20 min paper

presentations, each followed by 10 min discussion sections.

Presentations may be accompanied by interactive demonstrations.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Middleware including: Hadoop, Apache Drill, YARN, Spark/Shark, Hive,
Pig, Sqoop,

HBase, HDFS, S4, CIEL, Oozie, Impala, Storm and Hyrack

- Data intensive middleware architecture

- Libraries/Frameworks including: Apache Mahout, Giraph, UIMA and GraphLab

- NG Databases including Apache Cassandra, MongoDB and CouchDB/Couchbase

- Schedulers including Cascading

- Middleware for optimized data locality/in-place data processing

- Data handling middleware for deployment in virtualized HPC environments

- Parallelization and distributed processing architectures at the
middleware level

- Integration with cloud middleware and application servers

- Runtime environments and system level support for data-intensive computing

- Skeletons and patterns

- Checkpointing

- Programming models and languages

- Big Data ETL

- Stream processing middleware

- In-memory databases for HPC

- Scalability and interoperability

- Large-scale data storage and distributed file systems

- Content-centric addressing and networking

- Execution engines, languages and environments including CIEL/Skywriting

- Performance analysis, evaluation of data-intensive middleware

- In-depth analysis and performance optimizations in existing data-handling

middleware, focusing on indexing/fast storing or retrieval between compute

and storage nodes

- Highly scalable middleware optimized for minimum communication

- Use cases and experience for popular Big Data middleware

- Middleware security, privacy and trust architectures

Accepted full papers will be published in the Springer LNCS series.

The best papers of the workshop -- after extension and revision -- will be

published in a Special Issue of the Springer Journal of Scalable Computing.


Papers submitted to the workshop will be reviewed by at least two

members of the program committee and external reviewers. Submissions

should include abstract, key words, the e-mail address of the

corresponding author, and must not exceed 10 pages, including tables

and figures at a main font size no smaller than 11 point. Submission

of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper

be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the

conference to present the work.

The format must be according to the Springer LNCS Style. Initial

submissions are in PDF; authors of accepted papers will be requested

to provide source files.

Talks are strictly limited to 5 minutes. They can be used to gain early

feedback on ongoing research, for demonstrations, to present research

results, early research ideas, perspectives and positions of interest to

the community. Lightning talks should spark discussion with presenters

making themselves available following the lightning talk track.

DURATION: Workshop Duration is one day.


The workshop will be held as part of Euro-Par 2013.
