The 1st International Workshop on Architecture for Graph Processing

June 24th, 2017 Toronto, ON, Canada | Held in conjunction with ISCA 2017

In the age of “big data”, modern applications are increasingly data-intensive. An important data analytics application is the large-scale graph processing, which can be applied in many real-world problems, such as network communication, social informatics, natural language processing, system biology, and cyber security. Recently, there has been a resurgence of interest in developing graph analytics applications to gain new solutions and insights. This renewed interest spurred the software community to develop more efficient graph analytics processing frameworks at different scales, from distributed graph processing to single machine out-of-core systems to in-memory graph processing. However, the unique characteristics of graph processing, such as memory latency- or bandwidth-bound and poor locality, pose significant challenges to architectures and memory/storage systems. On the other side, the need of processing bigger (and dynamic) graphs in emerging applications is continuously increasing. Due to the critical role of architecture, we believe that it is timely to rethink the architecture and system for the graph processing applications.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together academic researchers and industry practitioners to share their insights from different perspectives (system, runtime/programming model, architecture, technology) on graph processing, with the hope of proposing the innovative and cross-layer approaches with the cutting-edge technologies. We will make AGP workshop an inclusive and interactive event that features invited keynotes and presentations.
