The goal of the Distributed Infrastructure Systems, Programming and AI (DISPA) workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners involved with distributed systems for databases, programmings, and machine learning. Distributed processing has become widespread due to the trend of increasing data volumes, but these research communities remain fairly disjoint. Moreover, industry trends such as public cloud computing are further changing the design of distributed systems, favoring highly elastic and multi-tenant system designs, but there are limited exposures to these challenges in research. We aim to enable an exchange of ideas among researchers and practitioners in this field where we will lead to novel distributed system designs.
There have been many exciting changes in the distributed system fields in recent years, including
the wide adoption of new open source programming tools for massively distributed computation (e.g. PyTorch and Apache Spark)
the rise of public cloud computing, “cloud-native” data management and computation systems such as BigQuery and AWS Aurora
the use of machine learning to manage and optimize distributed systems
new algorithmic advances in deep learning, approximate query processing, information retrieval, and other areas.
This workshop also provides good opportunities to discuss your work to be submitted to Scalable Data Science track at PVLDB.
