Presented under the auspices of the Special Year on Massive Data Sets.

We are witnessing a proliferation of applications that need to process large amounts of information. I/O between main and external memory is becoming an increasingly significant bottleneck. How, where and in what circumstances to involve the user are central questions and visualization may provide some of the answers. This workshop aims at fostering the cooperation among theoreticians and practitioners in the fields of External Memory Algorithms and/or Visualization. Papers are welcome on the following topics(non-exhaustive) as they relate to the workshop theme:

Workshop Format: There will be invited speakers; formal paper presentations and a demo session. These presentations are designed to serve as catalysts for discussion. Participants will have the opportunity to edit and resubmit their papers for publication in a refereed special AMS_DIMACS volume with the same workshop title.

Data Sets:
If there is enough interest, restricted access to some experimental data sets will be provided to authors of contributed papers. These data sets will contain between 10 and 250 million records.

Email List:
Send email to abello@research.att.com if you want to receive future workshop announcements. Please, include the subject line: EMA&VIS
