IITK Workshop on Algorithms for Processing Massive Data Sets
Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Kanpur is pleased to
announce the IITK Workshop on Algorithms for Processing Massive Data Sets
which will bring together leading experts in the field of massive data
analysis to discuss and share ideas on the subject.
December 18 to 20, 2009,
Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Kanpur, India
Register for the workshop here.
Aim and Scope of the Workshop :
There has been a spectacular advance in our capability to acquire data
and in many cases the data may arrive very rapidly. Applications
processing this data have caused a renewed focus on efficiency issues
of algorithms. Further, many applications can work with approximate
answers and/or with probabilistic guarantees. This opens up the area of
design of algorithms that are significantly time and space efficient
compared to their exact counterparts. The 2009 Workshop on Algorithms
for Processing Massive Data Sets will address the algorithmic issues
and mathematical foundations of massive data analysis. It brings
together a group of leading world-class researchers to discuss
cutting-edge research and ideas in the areas of algorithms for data
streams, matrix computations, compressed sensing, etc.
The workshop will be held in the campus of the Indian Institute of
Technology, Kanpur, in the Department of Computer Science and
Engineering and is a post-FSTTCS workshop. It is planned as a three-day
event and consists of only invited talks from leading experts on the
subject. Due to the in-depth nature of the workshop and to encourage
discussion, participation in the workshop is limited. Registration for
the workshop may be done at the FSTTCS registration site.
