The First Workshop on Big Data Benchmarks, Performance Optimization, and Emerging hardware (BPOE 2013)

In conjunction with 2013 IEEE International Conference on Big Data (IEEE Big Data 2013)

October 8, 2013, Silicon Valley, CA, USA


  • Bring together big data researchers from communities of architecture, systems, and data management. We will discuss the mutual influences of architectures, systems, and data management.
  • Bridge the gap of big data researches and practices between industry and academia. Researchers from universities, institutes, and companies will attend this workshop.
  • The Technical Program Committee is comprised of active big data practioners from both industry and academia.
  • All accepted papers will be published with the Proceeding of IEEE Big Data conference, and indexed by EI.


This workshop welcomes research and industry papers that address fundamental research issues in benchmarking, characterizing, designing and optimizing Big Data systems based on novel hardware and software applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Benchmarking Big Data, cloud and data center computer systems
  • Workload characterization of typical Big Data applications
  • Performance analysis and optimization of Big Data systems and applications
  • New experimental methodologies discussion: how to synthesizing PB-scale Big Data, simulating 100K-node systems, or even obtaining insights of large-scale systems from small-scale deployments
  • Innovative prototypes of Big Data infrastructures
  • Practice report of evaluating and optimizing large-scale big data systems
  • Emerging software and hardware technologies in Big Data systems
  • Application examples and use cases in using cyber-infrastructure for Big Data in sciences and engineering
