Session03-HPPD DM

Special Session on High Performance Parallel and Distributed Data Mining

(HPPD-DM 2016)


As part of

The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2016) or

July 18 – July 22, 2016

Innsbruck, Austria

Submission Deadline: April 14, 2016 - Extended

Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters


The HPPD-DM special session focuses on the issues of high performance, distributed and parallel computation in the process of knowledge discovery from large databases. Theoretical advances, algorithm and systems, as well as application cases are welcomed contributions.

Over the years the definition of high performance computing evolved according to the opportunities provided by new technologies and to the needs of the emerging industrial and scientific applications. High performance computing research topics range from traditional parallel and distributed algorithms, to modern multi-core CPU architectures, streaming GPUs, cloud computing, etc. Nowadays, high performance computing is a necessary support for Big Data and the analysis of very large volumes of possibly distributed data, such as those generated by scientific applications, Web x.0 services and IoT based.

The HPPD-DM special session aims at presenting new and original contributions focusing on the application of high performance parallel and distributed data mining, including distributed, parallel, P2P and data intensive algorithms and systems. We invite papers tackling the performance issues of data mining algorithm at all levels of the system architecture: I/O, memory bottlenecks, processor-level parallelism as well as distributed/parallel computation. All application areas are welcomed.

The HPPD-DM Session topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Energy-efficient distributed data mining algorithms and systems

  • Efficient, scalable, disk-based, parallel and distributed algorithms for large-scale data mining and pre-processing and post-processing tasks

  • Data mining exploiting multi-core CPUs or GPUs

  • Scalable algorithms & architectures for Machine learning over structured, semi-structured, spatio-temporal, graph, and streaming data

  • Grid-based and cluster-based data mining algorithms and systems

  • Data mining on Clouds

  • Data Mining for energy-aware Cloud management

  • Data Mining exploiting Map-Reduce paradigm

  • Distributed techniques for incremental, exploratory and interactive mining

  • Distributed techniques for security, privacy preserving data mining

  • Peer-to-Peer Data Mining

  • Data Mining in Social Networks and Social Media

  • High performance data stream mining and management

  • Resource- and location-aware mining algorithms

  • Data mining in mobile environments

  • Theoretical foundations for resource-aware mining in a mobile, streaming and/or distributed environments

  • Advances in data mining over multimedia data

  • Parallel or distributed frameworks for stream management, KDD systems, and parallel or distributed mining

  • Web Mining, Information and Knowledge Extraction

  • Applications of parallel and distributed data mining in business, science, engineering, medicine, and other disciplines.


You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to high performance parallel and distributed data mining. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. For Regular papers, please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column formatted pages per template, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author(s) although all authors are equally responsible for the manuscript. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to for posters submission details) will also be considered. Please specify the type of submission you have. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the special session paper submission EasyChair site at Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission.

Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the submission link above. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical clarity and presentation, and references. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the HPCS 2016 conference to present the paper at the special session.


Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2016 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly.


Plans are underway to have the best accepted papers be selected for possible publication in a journal special issue(s). Detailed information will soon be announced, and will be made available on the conference website.

If you have any questions about paper submission or the special session, please contact the Special Session organizers.
