CloudDP 2013

Title:Third Workshop on Cloud Data and Platforms (collocated with EuroSys 2013)
Submission Deadline:2013-01-27
Webpage:http://clouddp13.doc.ic.ac.uk/

Location:Prague, Czech Republic
Contact Email:clouddp13@doc.ic.ac.uk
Synopsis:
Cloud-based data management and processing systems, spanning tens of thousands of machines and supporting thousands of concurrent users, require new architectures, programming models and system designs that go beyond approaches used in fixed-sized compute clusters. For example, such systems must support the work of users who interactively explore and analyze large complex data sets in real-time. A wide range of systems and platform have been proposed to address these needs, ranging from batch-oriented systems such as Map/Reduce or Apache Hadoop to new, real-time streaming platforms such as Apache S4 or Storm.

Synopsis:
co-located with EuroSys 2013 in Prague, Czech Republic Future multi-core architectures will present a variety of challenges for system developers, such as non-cache-coherent memory, heterogeneous processing cores and the exploitation of novel architectural features. To achieve high performance on these platforms, application developers will need to exploit parallelism to a much greater extent than before. The SFMA'13 workshop is a forum for researchers in the operating systems, language runtime, virtual machine and architecture communities to present and discuss their experiences with the new generation of highly-parallel hardware.
