GID 2015

ADBIS workshop on GPUs In Databases

September 8th, 2015, Poitiers, France


High performance of modern Graphics Processing Units may be utilized not only for graphics related application but also for general computing. This computing power has been utilized in new variants of many algorithms from almost every computer science domain. 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 insertion anddata structure modification


A volume with all workshop papers will be published by Springer in the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing series (, for distribution among workshop participants during the workshop. Camera-ready papers are to be prepared in LaTeX (detailed instructions will be provided).

The authors of the best workshop papers will be invited to prepare extended versions of their papers after the workshop. Following an additional round of reviews, the extended papers will appear in a special issue of Information System frontiers, Springer (Factor Impact = 0.761).

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.).
