OVERVIEW AND TOPICS OF INTEREST

===============================

Over the last several years, there has been an increase of research in
parallel semantic
web data processing (SWDP) in the semantic web community as well as
burgeoning
interest in the high-performance computing (HPC) community. The goal of the
High-Performance Computing for the Semantic Web (HPCSW) workshop is to
facilitate
synergy between the HPC and semantic web communities as well as between
academia
and industry to further scalability of SWDP.

HPCSW is a half-day workshop that will begin with presentations of
technical papers
submitted for publication and will end with a discussion among (but not
limited to) invited
participants. Proceedings will be published online. Papers should present
work in which
HPC in some form (e.g., parallelism, supercomputers, FPGAs, etc.) is
employed to
improve SWDP (any kind of processing of semantic web data). Broad topics
for
papers include (but are not limited to):

* Parallelizing SWDP.
* Exploiting HPC architectures for SWDP.
* Employing parallel graph algorithms for SWDP.
* Benchmarks for SWDP from a HPC perspective.

The following questions will guide (but not limit) the discussion:

* How important is it to have high-performant applications for the semantic
web?
* What are the boundaries of HPC for SWDP?
* What SWDP lends itself to HPC and/or parallel processing?
* What pre-existing work in HPC can be leveraged for SWDP?
* How can scalable graph analytics be used for semantic web processing?
* What are the tradeoffs between commodity HPC and specialized HPC for
SWDP?
(e.g., MapReduce vs. "hand-coded", commodity clusters vs. supercomputers)


We expect that the issue of scalability is going to challenge the Semantic
Web
for a long period of time and significant effort is needed in order to
tackle the problem.
This workshop seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners to
share their
recent ideas and progress towards building scalable systems for the
Semantic Web;
participants from related disciplines such as Artificial Intelligence,
Databases,
Information Integration, Supercomputing, and High-Performance Computing are
also welcome.
