The Sixth Workshop on Big Data Benchmarking (6th WBDB) will be held
on June 16-17, 2015 in Toronto, Canada.
Formed in 2012, the Workshop Series on Big Data Benchmarking has conducted
five successful workshops, bringing together industry experts and the academic
community towards the development of benchmarks for providing objective
measures of the effectiveness of hardware and software systems dealing with
big data applications.
These workshops have become a leading international forum for discussing
and disseminating the latest trends, challenges, and ideas around big data
benchmarking and related applications scenarios, in industry and research.
Discussions initiated in these workshops have led to the creation of a formal
TPC benchmark called, TPCx-HS (for Hadoop Systems). A new TPC working group,
called TPC-BigBench, has also been established to develop the next TPC big
data benchmark. Ideas for BigBench originated in the WBDB workshops. A SPEC
Research Group on Big Data was also formed in October 2014, to discuss benchmarks
that model "end-to-end" scenarios for big data, covering different
data genres, e.g. graphs, streams, unstructured data, as well as structured
The 6th WBDB workshop will focus on the following topics:
