ADBIS workshop GPUs in Databases GID 2012

ADBIS workshop on GPUs In Databases GID 2012
September 17th, 2012, Poznan, Poland


In recent years, utilizing Graphics Processing Units for general processing (the so-called GPGPU) has become a very popular approach to obtain low-cost high performance computing applications. Algorithms from many computer science application domains have been adapted to utilize GPUs to increase the efficiency of processing. Unfortunately, while other application domains strongly benefit from utilizing the GPUs, databases related applications seem not to get enough attention. The main goal of GPUs in Databases workshop is to fill this gap. This event is devoted to sharing the knowledge related to applying GPUs in Database environments and to discuss possible future development of this application domain.


List of topics of the GID workshop includes (but is not limited to):

     1. Data compression on GPUs
            * lossless/lossy compression and decompression
            * real time compression and decompression of multimedia
     2. GPUs in databases and data warehouses
            * join processing
            * data indexing
            * data aggregation
            * bulk query processing
            * analytical query processing
     3. Data mining using GPUs
            * classification
            * frequent itemsets and association rules
            * frequent subgraphs
            * sequential patterns
            * clustering
            * social networks mining
            * regression
     4. Stream processing
            * query processing in streaming databases
            * stream compression/decompression
     5. Applications of GPUs in bioinformatics
     6. Data oriented GPU primitives
            * sorting
            * searching
            * parallel data structure modification (data insertion, modification and removal)


All accepted papers will be published by Springer in the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing (AISC) series ( AISC is indexed by ISI Proceedings, DBLP, Ulrich's, EI-Compendex, SCOPUS, Zentralblatt Math, MetaPress, and Springerlink. Extended versions of the best workshop papers (at least 3 top papers from each workshop) will be invited after the conference to the international journal Control and Cybernetics (, which is indexed by Thomson Reuters Science Citation Index Expanded. Publication of selected papers in the journal will be subject to the second round of reviews (to verify if the paper satisfies the journal requirements, including 30% of new content compared to the version from the AISC proceedings). In order to qualify for the journal, the paper will have to be presented at the workshop by one of its authors. Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the workshop. Each paper will be reviewed by at least two Program Committee members. Duplicate submissions are not allowed, i.e. submitted papers must not overlap substantially with any other papers of the same author(s) submitted elsewhere (i.e. journal, conference, workshop etc.).

Workshop papers must not exceed 10 pages in the AISC format and must comply with the AISC formatting guidelines available at (the link to "Instructions for Authors" is at the right hand side). All papers (in PDF file format) should be submitted electronically via email: Camera-ready papers are to be prepared using LaTeX.
