Workshop Overview

The objective of this one-day workshop is to investigate opportunities in accelerating analytics workloads and data management systems which include traditional OLTP, data warehousing/OLAP, HTAP, ETL, Streaming/Real-time Processing, Business Analytics (including machine learning and deep learning workloads), and Data Visualization, using modern processors (e.g., commodity and specialized Multi-core, Many-core, GPUs, and FPGAs), processing systems (e.g., hybrid, massively-distributed clusters, and cloud based distributed computing infrastructure), networking infrastructures (e.g., RDMA over InfiniBand), memory and storage systems (e.g., storage-class Memories like SSDs, active memories, NVRams, and Phase-change Memory), multi-core and distributed programming paradigms like CUDA/OpenCL, MPI/OpenMP, and MapReduce/Spark, and integration with data-science frameworks such as Sklearn, TensorFlow, or PyTorch. Exploratory topics such as DNA-based storage or quantum algorithms are also within the preview of the ADMS workshop.

The current data management scenario is characterized by the following trends: traditional OLTP and OLAP/data warehousing systems are being used for increasing complex workloads (e.g., Petabyte of data, complex queries under real-time constraints, etc.); applications are becoming far more distributed, often consisting of different data processing components; non-traditional domains such as bio-informatics, social networking, mobile computing, sensor applications, gaming are generating growing quantities of data of different types; economical and energy constraints are leading to greater consolidation and virtualization of resources; and analyzing vast quantities of complex data is becoming more important than traditional transactional processing.

At the same time, there have been tremendous improvements in the CPU and memory technologies. Newer processors are more capable in the compute and memory capabilities, are power-efficient, and are optimized for multiple application domains. Commodity systems are increasingly using multi-core processors with more than 6 cores per chip and enterprise-class systems are using processors with at least 32 cores per chip. Specialized multi-core processors such as the GPUs have brought the computational capabilities of supercomputers to cheaper commodity machines. On the storage front, FLASH-based solid state devices (SSDs) are becoming smaller in size, cheaper in price, and larger in capacity. Exotic technologies like Phase-change memory are on the near-term horizon and can be game-changers in the way data is stored and processed.

In spite of the trends, currently there is limited usage of these technologies in data management domain. Naive exploitation of multi-core processors or SSDs often leads to unbalanced systems. It is, therefore, important to evaluate applications in a holistic manner to ensure effective utilization of CPU and memory resources. This workshop aims to understand impact of modern hardware technologies on accelerating core components of data management workloads. Specifically, the workshop hopes to explore the interplay between overall system design, core algorithms, query optimization strategies, programming approaches, performance modelling and evaluation, etc., from the perspective of data management applications.
