Workshop I: Big Data Meets Large-Scale Computing

September 24 - 28, 2018


BDCWS1 ImageLarge data sets are increasingly being ingested (e.g., in data assimilation) and produced (e.g., in uncertainty quantification) by traditional simulations. Important questions that emerges are: What experience from traditional simulations is transferable to newly emerging big data applications? Conversely, what new optimal algorithms will emerge that are motivated by data intensive applications being pushed to large scales? How will they enrich traditional simulations?

Examples of topics that will be discussed:

  • requirements and relations of high-performance analytics and simulation
  • scalable hierarchical algorithms for analytics and simulation
  • detecting and exploiting data sparsity within large-scale data sets
  • open problems, where no scalable methods yet exist


This workshop will bring together analysts and developers of computationally and data intensive applications interested in early exploitation of extreme scale computing platforms to define common ground and seek new opportunities.

This workshop will include a poster session; a request for posters will be sent to registered participants in advance of the workshop.
