Workshop History

After several editions linked with the International Parallel & Distributed Processing Sym-posium (1998-2001), and by the SIAM Data Mining conference (2002-2006), this year HPDM is organized in conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on Data Mining.
The upcoming theme of the workshop is support and ex-ploitation of emerging computer architectures such as multi-core CPUs and streaming GPUs. We are looking forward to a very special and exciting 10th edition in Pisa!

Keynote Talk

Speaker: Prof. Srinivasan Parthasarathy, Ohio State University
Title: Mining and Managing Tree Structured Data Efficiently


Recently the use of structured and semi-structured data has been increasing at a tremendous pace. Applications ranging from bioinformatics to XML databases from the World Wide Web to Computational Linguistics are generating and processing large amounts of structured and semi-structured data. There is a clear and present need to develop efficient algorithms to index, process. manage, and analyze such data.

In this talk I will cover our recent efforts on mining and managing tree structured data -- a sub class of problems in this field with applications in Linguistic data analysis and XML data management. Specifically we will discuss the role of "succinct" encodings and data structures when developing memory and I/O efficient solutions for indexing XML data. Additionally, in the context of mining tree structured data we will present similar ideas and solutions for multicore systems. Here, in addition to algorithm designs that reduce the latency to memory we also consider mechanisms to reduce the off-chip memory traffic or bandwidth. We also explore an adaptive task and data parallel algorithm design that facilitates effective parallelization in the presence of data and workload skew. A detailed analysis and performance benchmarking study validates the utility of the proposed algorithms. We will conclude with a discussion of the general purpose utility of the techniques developed and outline directions of future work.

This is joint work with my graduate student -- Shirish Tatikonda.



Dr. Srinivasan Parthasarathy received his PhD in Computer Science from the University of Rochester, New York, USA. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at the Ohio State University (OSU). Currently he is spending a delightful sabbatical year visiting the Database group at the National University of Singapore. His research interests are broadly in the areas of Data Mining, Databases, Bioinformatics and High Performance Computing.

He is a recipient of an NSF CAREER award in 2003, a DOE Early Career Award in 2004, an Ameritech Faculty fellowship in 2001 and an IBM Faculty Award in 2007. His papers have received several best paper awards from leading conferences in the field, including ones at SIAM international conference on data mining (SDM), IEEE international conference on data mining (ICDM), the Very Large Databases Conference (VLDB) and most recently at ACM Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (SIGKDD).

He is a member of the ACM and the IEEE and has served on the program committees of leading conferences in the fields of data mining, databases, and high performance computing. He currently serves on the editorial boards of several journals including the IEEE Intelligent Systems, Distributed and Parallel Databases Journal, and the Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery: An International Journal. He served as one of the program chairs of SIAM Data Mining in 2007 and is currently serving as one of the general chairs for the 2009 edition.
