International Workshop on Management of Big Data Systems (MBDS 2012)

In conjunction with ICAC 2012

September 21, 2012, San Jose, CA



Paper submission due: June 15, 2012
Author notification: July 30, 2012
Workshop: Sep 21, 2012



Data is growing at an exponential rate and several systems have emerged
to store and analyze such large amounts of data. These systems, termed
“Big data systems” are fast evolving Examples include the NoSQL storage
systems, Hadoop Map-Reduce, data analytics platforms, search and indexing
platforms, and messaging infrastructures. These systems address needs for
structured and unstructured data across a wide spectrum of domains such
as web, social networks, enterprise, cloud, mobile, sensor networks,
multimedia/streaming, cyberphysical and high performance systems, and
for multiple application verticals such as biosciences, healthcare,
transportation, public sector, energy utilities, oil & gas, and scientific

With increasing scale and complexity, managing these big data systems to
cope with failures and performance problems is becoming non-trivial.
New resource management and scheduling mechanisms are also needed for such
systems, and so are mechanisms for tuning and support from platform layers.
Several open source and proprietary solutions have been proposed to address
these requirements, with extensive contributions from industry and academia.
However, there remain substantial challenges, including those that pertain
to such systems’ autonomic and self-management capabilities.

The objective of the MBDS workshop is to bring together researchers,
practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others
interested in sharing and presenting their perspectives on the effective
management of big data systems. The focus of the workshop is on novel and
practical, systems-oriented work. MBDS offers an opportunity for researchers
and practitioners from industry, academia, and national labs to showcase the
latest advances in this area and to also discuss and identify future directions
and challenges in all aspects on autonomic management of big data systems.

Papers are solicited on all aspects of big data management. Specific topics
of interest include, but are not limited, to the following:

* Autonomic and self-managing techniques

* Application-level resource management and scheduling mechanisms

* System tuning/auto-tuning and configuration management

* Performance management, fault management, and power management

* Scalability challenges

* Complexity challenges, as for composite, cross-tier systems with multiple control loops

* Unified management of ‘data in motion’ and ‘data at rest’

* Dealing with both structured and unstructured data

* Monitoring, diagnosis, and automated behaviour detection

* System-level principles and support for resource management

* Holistic management across hardware and software

* Implications of emerging hardware technologies such as non-volatile memory

* Domain specific challenges in web, cloud, social networks, mobile, sensor networks,
streaming analytics, cyber-physical systems

* System building and experience papers for specific industry verticals



Full papers (a maximum of 6 pages in the two-column ACM proceedings
format) are invited on a wide variety of topics relating to management of big
data systems. Submitted papers must be original work, and may not be under
consideration for another conference or journal. Complete formatting and
submission instructions can be found on the workshop web site. Accepted
papers will appear in proceedings distributed at the conference and available
