Workshop: Mapreduce’12 – 3rd International Workshop on Mapreduce and its applications)

If you are interested in Mapreduce or Hadoop I recommend submitting to or attending the following workshop.

The Third International Workshop on MapReduce and its Applications (MAPREDUCE’12)
June 18-19, 2012 HPDC’2012, Delft, the Netherlands.


Since its introduction in 2004 by Google, MapReduce has become the programming
model of choice for processing large data sets. MapReduce borrows from functional
programming, where a programmer can define both a Map task that maps a data set
into another data set, and a Reduce task that combines intermediate outputs into
a final result. Although MapReduce was originally developed for use by web
enterprises in large data-centers, this technique has gained a lot of attention
from the scientific community for its applicability in large parallel data
analysis (including geographic, high energy physics, genomics, etc..).

The purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum for discussing recent advances,
identifying open issues, introducing developments and tools, and presenting
applications and enhancements for MapReduce (or very similar) systems. We
therefore cordially invite contributions that investigate these issues, introduce
new execution environments, apply performance evaluations and show the
applicability to science and enterprise applications.


– MapReduce implementation issues and improvements
– Implementation optimization for GPU and multi-core systems
– Extensions to the programing model
– Large-scale MapReduce (Grid and Desktop Grid)
– Use of CDN and P2P techniques
– Heterogeneity and fault-tolerance
– Scientific data-sets analysis
– Data and compute-intensive applications
– Tools and environments for MapReduce
– Algorithms using the MapReduce paradigm


Authors are invited to submit full papers of at most 8 pages, including all
figures and references. Papers should be formatted in the ACM proceedings style
(e.g., Submitted
papers must be original work that has not appeared in and is not under
consideration for another conference or a journal. Accepted papers will be
published by ACM in the conference workshops proceedings.
